1967 Disneyland Employee Family Christmas Shopping Pass

In honor of “Black Friday” here’s a vintage Disneyland Employee Family Christmas Shopping Pass from 1967. What a great treat for the family, free parking and a main gate pass good for most of December!

A 15% discount was “possible” on “selected” merchandise; of course the item you want is not “selected” and will be full price. See a 1981 vs. 1982 Employee Holiday Pass post from last year here (link).

The cover to the Winter 1967 - Spring 1968 edition of Vacationland. Notice anything wrong with this picture? Here's a (clue).

Nice article about the benefits of purchasing ticket books. No mention of the fact that you probably won’t used them all and some weird guy on eBay will buy them from you decades later.

This article is entitle “The Everchanging Disneylandscape”, spell check doesn’t like that title and if you want to see the second page, come back on Bonus Sunday for the entire issue.

This scan is dedicated to my friend “Katella Gate”, we both share an odd fondness for vintage Disneyland drinking fountains especially with sacks of sugar on them.

Come back on Bonus Sunday for the entire issue, its got articles about; "Spring has Sprung" with that weird hot air balloon at Disneyland, "Hollywood Tours" opens its doors, "The Enchanted Tiki Room" and "The Happiest Cleaners Work at Disneyland".

You would think that someone in editing would have noticed that the cover photo was reversed! DOH!

Gorgeous cover picture!

Yes, the photo is reversed but it is visually more balanced this way, in an artistic point of view, I think!

Thank you so much for giving access to so many Disney publications of the past!

I do miss (The) Disney News; those were always so sleak.

Great articles (PR of course!), wonderful and imaginative layouts and, oh those pics!

To most of us, I presume, they bring back fond memories of the "old days" ...

Hmmm, I'm not sure I have that Vacationland, and I thought I had all of the pre-1970 issues! No I'll have to dig through them to see. Or I'll just come back sunday to see the whole thing!

You know you actually had me excited to think that there was ANOTHER, undiscovered sugar-on-fountain photograph out there.

Curious what everyone thinks of the new book "Mousecatraz: The Disney College Program?" I spotted it last week.
