Souvenir Friday- Mickey Mouse Club Circus Gate Flier
In 1955 Walt Disney had just started Disneyland and also his kid's TV show, the Mickey Mouse Club. In order to promote the show, and I think because he wanted to own a circus, Disneyland presented the Mickey Mouse Club circus in a big tent in Fantasyland. The circus performances were 75 minutes in length. Despite all the wondrous entertainment value (Serenado the Wonder Horse, Bob-O the Clown and the Magic Christmas Tree), the circus was not well attended and considered a flop. Here is the gate flier featuring information on the circus along with ticket prices at the time.
