Souvenir Friday- Disneyland Opening Day Ad

Each year around July 17th many arguments start over whether the 17th or the 18th is the true opening day of Disneyland. This ad seems to prove that the 18th should be considered the true opening day, with a large banner reading Opens Monday July 18. The ad is from a San Diego newspaper (either the Union, the Evening Tribune or even the Sun) and most likely ran on Saturday. The ad copy is very entertaining.

Hey Patrick, I couldn't figure it out from the image - what day does Disneyland open?

Yes, it's unclear as to what day Disneyland opens???? Great Ad!!!

I like how they list the admission prices ($1 for adults - 50¢ for children) but there is no mention that most of the attractions require you to purchases additional tickets. I think they should try "ticket books"...
