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:

Vintage Disney Storage Find #2A – Vacationland Summer 1977 Magazine (part 1)

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!

I actually found this vintage piece before I found the “Sleeping Beauty” poster (see previous blog) and have been posting individual pages on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/joshwilltravel and sharing them with the Vintage Disneyland group.

The magazine was in MINT CONDITION and I was hesitant to even scan it for fear of damage. It was just too cool not to share! I’m working on a long blog and the contents include the articles on the Main Street Electrical Parade, the Golden Horseshoe Revue, “The Rescuers” and 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.

Okay, this was just a BIG TEASE because I don’t have time to post the whole blog…it’s under construction…and I spent some time on World Cup USA ’94 (coming soon) tonight.

The View of Downtown from the Top of the Beverly Hilton

Lunch at Circa 55 and a tour of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills today!  It’s such an iconic property and there’s so much history when you’re on the premises.  It is a GRAND hotel!  The new management is quietly (and not so quietly) making some nice changes and renovations.

I had a great lunch at Circa 55: crab cake, a french dip sandwich au jus, sweet potato fries and an iced tea.  Then we toured the hotel, checked out the rooms, suites, Governor’s Suite and Penthouse Event Room.  I love this hotel!

“Trade Day” at the LA Times Travel Show 2013

On Friday, February 22, 2013, I got up very early and traveled the 101 freeway to the L.A. Convention Center downtown for “Trade Day” at the Los Angeles Times Travel Show.  Registration was $35 and parking $15.  And for my $50 ticket, I spent the day at the industry conference participating in seminar sessions, networking with other travel professionals, touring the exhibition hall and meeting the vendors.  Included in the registration fee was a buffet lunch and two drink tickets for the post show reception.IMG02116-20130222-0831

8:30am – Check-in at Registration

NOTE TO EVENT PRODUCERS: There really should have been a morning reception with COFFEE (and maybe bagels, baked goods, fruit, water and juice) before the sessions started!  There’s a Starbuck’s in the lobby of the West Hall of the Convention Center, but it was closed.  The closest place for coffee was the Starbuck’s in the South Hall a long way away and with a very long line.

9am – Using Social Media to Build Your Brand

Lillian Africano, the president of the Society of American Travel Writers moderated the session with Johnny Jet (johnnyjet.com) and Jessica Marati (gadling.com) as the featured speakers.

10:15am – General Session: What Are the Opportunities and Issues in Social Media?

A panel of experts moderated by James Shillinglaw, editor in chief of travAlliancemedia.  Stacy Small, Lark Gould and David Anderson as the featured speakers.IMG02121-20130222-1022

11:30am – General Session: Bridging the Gap to Profitability

Another panel of experts with Susan Tanzman, James Berkeley, Andi McClure-Mysza and Mark Murphy as the featured speakers.IMG02122-20130222-1222

12:45pm – Luncheon with Featured Speaker: Trends, Threats and Tips…2013 NOT Business as Usual with John Severini, President and CEO, California Travel Association

A buffet lunch (chicken, mashed potato, salad, bread and butter, chocolate cake and iced tea) and a very nice presentation by John Severini.  Sorry NO COFFEE at lunch!

2pm – Cruising 2013 and Beyond

Moderated by Michelle Fee, this panel featured the sales directors from six cruise companies: Norwegian, Princess, Azamara, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival (insert Carnival Cruise joke here, although NOBODY was joking in this session).IMG02124-20130222-1412

3pm – Exclusive Access to the Exhibition Floor

Special exhibitor access, met some of the travel vendors and collected lots of information, some free SWAG and assorted candy.

4pm – Hosted Reception in the Exhibition Hall Lounge

I used my two drink tickets (absolut & pineapple juice), grabbed a free bottle of water and talked with a few people before heading back to the exhibition floor.  And at 4pm they finally had coffee available in the exhibition floor lounge…way too late.

6pm – Friday STOP AND GO TRAFFIC on the 101 Freeway all the way home.  No Fun!
