Grad Nite Party at Disneyland 1965! Without a doubt the very best year for Disneyland! Of course to be honest, I am very biased since I was born in 1965. Heck, I wasn't even at Disneyland until 1968, so my statement is very subjective…
Disneyland came up with a great logo for its ten year anniversary or “Tencennial”. Did you know “Tencennial” isn’t even a real word? At least spell check doesn’t like it and Merriam-Webster has never heard of it. I always assumed (mistake) that is was a real word, just like “supercalifragilisticexpealidous”
June 17, 1965 – 11:00pm till 5:00am. If you didn’t win the 1964 Mustang on yesterdays post, now is your chance to win a 1965 Mustang! That’s a Grand prize indeed.
1965 has the same rules as “Grad Nite ‘64”, with marijuana still not making the “not allowed” list.
From June of 1965, this is the cover to a special newspaper souvenir supplement that was produced for the “Tencennial”. This is a gorgeous 24 page ALL COLOR newspaper supplement. It’s held up pretty well over the years, the paper is a little yellow, but the photos still look great. Many of these photos appear to be "new" for the '65 Celebration. As Walt says this is a "birthday card" in reverse, a thank you to us. This is really a special treat if you have not seen this item.
Here are three pages from the 1965 Tencennial Supplement. Check back on Bonus Sunday for the entire 24 page scan; don’t miss it, it’s fantastic!
See you in 1966 (or tomorrow)...
