Things From the Gate- Winter 1956 Fliers

Two different ticket fliers from late 1956. First up is a Winter 1956 flier with the greatest value on earth. The prices are lowered as per the last flier. Disneyland was closed on Mondays.

Next up is the Christmas brochure with the note that it ends on January 6th. I wonder if ticket books purchased on January 6, 1957 were still good (note the brochure still states that all ticket books are good through 1956.)

Incredible; like I said before, I had no idea there were so many variations on these little ticket flyers. The Christmas Festival one has to be super rare!

I have a ticket book that says"All coupons in this book are good at any time during 1956" (it does not mention the Skyway among the attractions), so it seems pretty clear that unlike later, your ticket book was only good for that year. As for the books bought in that first week of January... who knows!

I love the simple illustrations on these fliers. They look like they were done quickly, yet they are so concise and energetic!

Man I can never get enough of these! I've heard a rumor that the "Good any time in 1956" tickets were still honored in 1957 and later, seriously, who reads the back of tickets anyway?

I wonder what constitutes "Proper identification" for clergy?
