Very Merry Christmas Party at Disneyland - December 13, 1985

******* Originally posted December 11, 2009 *******

It’s time for a Very Merry Christmas Party at Disneyland, December 13, 1985. This in-park flyer is printed on thick textured bond paper. I’m thinking this was a cast party, it seems too nice for us regular folks.

Nice holiday entertainment lineup, although I’m not sure how “Krash” fits in.

Bring your camera for a special family portrait with the Characters, where is/was “Small World Meadows”? Check out all those choirs singing Christmas carols throughout the park.

The Disneyland Carolers invite you to join in the celebration.

Don’t miss Disney’s “One Magic Christmas” starring Mary Steenburgen, ok, I’ve missed it for 24 years, in fact, I’ve never heard of it!

Looks like Mary Steenburgen graces the cover of the Winter 1985 edition of the Disney News.

The Disney News had undergone a format change on the prior issue. The magazine is now more Glossy, more Zing, more pages but apparently pretty much the same content. I agree with reader “Dan” who wants more Disneyland articles.

Caption EO looks to be a reality – is history repeating itself?

Back when Disneyland had a real tree. Did I mention they use fake trees now?

Frame Worthy” page in the center of the magazine. Do you suppose some folks actually framed these?

Nice two page article about the Country Bears new Christmas Show… Can you imagine the PR Disney could squeeze from this show if they still had it?

Have we got taste for you” That taste would be the New Coke, which was either a colossal failure or marketing genius, depends how you look at it (link).

You are on fire, new posts almost every day! Awesome.

How am I supposed to know where the Character Photo Locations are with just one map? I need two identical maps.

Great post!

I remember seeing the special Christmas version of Country Bears in Walt Disney World once. Just once. I wonder if it even lasted past that once year?

"One Magic Christmas," on the other hand, I do remember because I just finally watched it a few years ago. Here's my reaction. It's... not what you'd expect from the title and advertisements.
