A Pair of Parade Tickets

Here's a couple of Christmas parade ticket's, one from "Fantasy on Parade" December 21, 1980 and one from the "Very Merry Christmas Parade" December 12, 1992. I like how the "arrive early" "reserve seating" wording is (almost) exactly the same 12 years later. How were these tickets issued and who got them?

Hmmmmm, interesting. I did notice reserved seating at the top of the steps to the train station for this year's Xmas parade. I should have asked the cast members who gets to sit there.

The top half of that first ticket shows Chip and Dale's float. They would throw real flour at each other throughout the parade. The costumes would have to be cleaned after every perfomance.

TokyoMagic!, I would imagine that the flour would have to be cleaned off of the float and the street as well! What a pain.

Funny thing, my unit came along after them in the parade and I don't recall much flour on the ground, plus other performers and park guests could have slipped on it, I would think. The two cast memebers playing Chip and Dale (both female) must have been told to try and keep it all on the float.
