Senior Leisure Days at Disneyland - 1977

It’s Senior Leisure Days at Disneyland, May 16 thru 20, 1977.

I’ve never heard of any of these people appearing on the Space Mountain Stage. By the way, I sure do miss the Space Mountain Stage and surrounding area. “Honey I Shrunk the life out of an Attraction” needs to be removed pronto.

These little drawings are fun, it’s neat the way the attractions are intermixed.

The original of this would be great to have, frame worthy in my opinion. Gasp, I see three sorely missed attractions…

You’ll need some tickets, this book should work. It's actually from September 1976, this Disneyland “Senior Citizen Days” ticket book may or may not have been used during, Senior Leisure Days – one of lifes little mysteries… Let’s thumb thru the book.

The Main Gate ticket on some fine Globe paper. Notice the special “R” sequence serial number, I’ve seen it once or twice before on special event ticket books

This little card is just under the admission ticket, and speaking of mysteries, what do you think the prize was? Also, what do you want to bet Disney used the information from these little cards for some mass marketing?

Welcome” page, too cold without Walt’s signature.

Oh, there’s Walt’s signature, I take back what I said about the welcome page.

Ten of these pink gems are included in the ticket book. Pink is not my favorite color, but for Globe paper it works well. And with the print in pink these do have a nice lush look and feel to them.

Your Adventures in Disneyland list. Noteworthy; The PeopleMover is missing, out of commission for Space Mountain construction. The final appearance of the Mine Train Thru Natures Wonderland.

The back cover reveals an AMAZING value, that’s the best value I’ve seen on a ticket book, those lucky seniors!

Was the prize a year's supply of Polident...delivered in person by Martha Rae?

P.S. I miss the Space Mt. stage too! They completely ruined the whole look of the Space Mt. complex by enclosing the theater. And "Honey I Shrunk The Audience" has got to be THE worst 3-D movie they have ever produced....well, maybe it's a tie between that and the Muppet film.

When I first saw "Honey I Shrunk the Audience" I had fun... it felt like something new. But now - - yeesh! Come on, Imagineers, you can do better than that.

Senior Leisure Days...
Wow.. what fun... no waiting for rides... but I bet the shows were packed!
The performers over on the Space Stage:
Jo Ann Castle and the Semonski Sisters were from the Lawrance Welk Show.
I think we all miss the Space Stage.

Thanks for the great post!

Major: No doubt the Imagineers can do better than that. It's a question of if they will be permitted to do so.
