Things From the Gate- 1956 Ticket Fliers

From early July of 1956 comes the next gate flier. The flier promotes the new attractions of the Tom Sawyer Island (opened June 16, 1956), Storybook Land (June 16, 1956), Rainbow Caverns Mine Ride (July 2, 1956), and the Skyway (June 23, 1956.) Disneyland kept these graphics for a while as you shall soon see with the other fliers from 1956.

Great post - "The world's greatest entertainment value" hard to argue with that!

This must bee one of the first mentions of the new "D" ticket (link).

Interesting how the early tickets "expired" at the end of 1956, I wonder if they still accepted them when they got rid of the expiration dates just a year later?

Did I mention: Great post - Thanks!

I guess I never really knew that there were variations in these ticket flyers, although it makes perfect sense! The only one I have is faded and crummy, I'm actually thinking about getting rid of it.
