When Disneyland first opened in 1955, there was a guidebook and postcards for sale to the public. Because there weren’t any photos, they used the artist’s illustrations and the pre-construction design renderings. And you could mail the envelope they came in.

The Guidebook

Disneyland sold them at a loss for $1.00 (they cost $1.10 to print) in the mailing envelope so that Guests would share their experience with family and friends back home.

Vintage Disney Storage Finds #7  
Disneyland Tickets & the Indiana Jones Decoder Card!

As part of our early Spring Cleaning, we are moving and opening boxes and finding cool stuff! Today we opened a box and found a smaller box marked “Ticket Stubs” and found some vintage Disneyland Tickets and the Indiana Jones Adventure Decoder Card for the hieroglyphs on the walls in the waiting line for the ride.

NOTE: A SoCal Resident One Day Passport for Disneyland is priced at $24.00 in 1996!

Happy Halloween! From Disneyland’s Grim Grinning Ghosts!

Happy Halloween!

“When hinges creak in doorless chambers
And strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls
Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still
That is the time when ghosts are present
Practicing their terror with ghoulish delight”

“Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts!” Phineas, Ezra & Gus

Grim Grinning Ghosts: The Screaming Song
(composed by Buddy Baker, with lyrics written by X Atencio)
The Phantom 4 of 5 - Disney's Haunted Mansion

The Phantom 4 of 5 sing “Grim Grinning Ghosts” – Disney’s Haunted Mansion

When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake,
Spooks come out for a swinging wake!
Happy haunts materialize, and begin to vocalize.
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!

Now don’t close your eyes and don’t try to hide,
For a silly spook may sit by your side.
Shrouded in a daft disguise, they pretend to terrorize.
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!As the moon climbs high o’er the dead oak tree,
Spooks arrive for the midnight spree.
Creepy creeps with eerie eyes start to shriek and harmonize.
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!

When you hear the knell of a requiem bell,
weird glows gleam where spirits dwell.
Restless bones etherealize, rise as spooks of every size!

“Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts!” Phineas, Ezra & Gus

If you would like to join our jamboree
Theres a simple rule thats compulsory:
Mortals pay a token fee, rest in peace, the hauntings free,

So hurry back, we would like your company!

“Hurry back…Hurry back…
Be sure to bring your death certificate
If you decide to join us
Make final arrangements now
We’ve been…dying…to have you!”

Vintage Storage Find #2B – Disneyland Vacationland Summer 1977 Magazine (part 2)

Storage Find #2B – Disneyland Vacationland Summer 1977 Magazine (part 2)

NOTE: This Blog was originally written and constructed 12 JUNE 2014. This is the first time it’s been published. Enjoy!

I actually found this vintage Disneyland Vacationland magazine from 1977 before I found the “Sleeping Beauty” poster (see a previous blog) and have been posting pages on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/joshwilltravel and sharing them with the Vintage Disneyland group. It was in MINT CONDITION and I was hesitant to even scan it for fear of damage.

In addition to the cover story on the Grand Opening of Space Mountain, the contents include articles on the Main Street Electrical Parade, the Golden Horseshoe Revue, “The Rescuers” and the Disneyland Costume Division. There are also vintage promotions for the Gerber Baby Center and Orville Reddenbacher Popcorn (both new additions in 1977) and cool retro ads for Disneyland, Wonder Bread/Hostess, GAF/Kodak and even other theme parks: Knotts, Magic Mountain, Lion Country Safari and Universal Studios.

It was just too cool not to share! So here is what I scanned:

Throwback Thursday – Flashback Friday again.

Throwback Thursday! Flashback Friday!

Feeling grateful as I look at old photographs. Remembering the many trips and vacations I was fortunate to take and the wonderful places I visited growing up. Here are just a few:

First time at Disneyland! In the Dome of the Monorail with cousin Danny 1970

First time at Disneyland! In the Dome of the Monorail with cousin Danny 1970

Every year, Grandma would take all the grandkids to Anaheim for 2 days at Disneyland and a night at the Disneyland Hotel. Grandma also took me on many trips: Glacier National Park, Montana, Niagara Falls, Seattle, Vancouver, Edmonton and all across Canada, London and Scotland. And of course Chicago and New York City:

New York City and Liberty Island with Grandma!

I also traveled a lot with my family. Vacations to New York, Washington D.C., Virginia and Philadelphia in 1976 during the nation’s Bicentennial; Hawaii, Big Sur, Yosemite and Sequoia national parks, Lake Tahoe and northern California, San Diego, the Grand Canyon and “Four Corners”, Chicago, Kenosha, a very weird Thanksgiving in Arizona, Mammoth, Palm Springs (where my Grandparents retired), Park City, Utah and even Las Vegas.

Another answer: Places to stay for Anaheim Convention Centre? Places to stay in L.A., preferably with a pool?

NOTE: This was a question with a very particular requirement, but the information in the answer can be helpful to anyone visiting Los Angeles or Anaheim!

Q: Best places to stay for Star Wars 2015 Anaheim Convention Centre? 

Q: Looking for suggestions of places to stay in L.A., preferably with a pool?

“My son is travelling to California (from Jersey, Channel Islands, United Kingdom) in April 2015 to attend the Star Wars Convention. He and his friends are arriving into LAX around 4 April and leaving the day after the convention on 20 April – the convention runs from 16-19 April….Rather than being stuck out at the convention centre, however, it seems that it takes 2 hours and many changes on public transport to get to convention centre area from Long Beach which is too long. Due to ages of travellers (16-22) hiring a car is probably going to be a no no! Could maybe consider staying in LA for the first part and moving to a hotel near the convention centre for the 2nd part. I’m sure a trip to Disneyland will be on the cards too. My son is blind and has some mobility issues so its useful to bear that in mind. Any info on places/areas to stay and getting around would be very appreciated. Thanks, Emma” ~ Emma T., Jersey, United Kingdom

A: Special Needs Travelers shouldn’t worry about visiting Los Angeles or Anaheim. It just takes proper planning and a good companion. Your son’s blindness and mobility issues shouldn’t prevent him from having a great time in California.

NOTE: I spent last few days moving my storage and having some fun, so it’s been a little hectic here. There a few other blogs in varying stages of development, just haven’t had time to finish, polish and post…apologies to my loyal readers. I am proud to point out that at least one blog was posted each day the week before, so go back and check out the archive! There’s some pretty fun stuff and I’d like some feedback if you’re out there! Thanks!
