If you'd joined the Disneyland Cast when the summer of 1984 started, you'd know your way around guest questions well by now. By August, when the temperatures and guest counts had reached their highest points, answers to "Where's the nearest restroom?" and "Do you sell film?" came easy.
Still, it was nice to know that there was a summer wallet fact card tucked into your costume. The little folding card had all you needed to know about Disneyland and all that Disneyland ever needed to be.
Want to pick up a unique gift? Try the One-of-a-Kind Shop in Mlle. Antionette's Parfumerie, or the Wilderness Outpost in Bear Country. Short of cash? Visit the Bank of America branch in Town Square.
Need a break from waiting in lines in the August heat? Grab a bite to eat at the Space Place, then catch Show Biz Is! at the Space Stage. Or the polynesian show at the Tahitian Terrace. Or the Golden Horseshoe Revue. Or Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln at the Opera House.
Tired of walking? Hop aboard the PeopleMover for a grand circle tour of Tomorrowland or take the Skyway.
You've got plenty of time. Disneyland is open until midnight (1:00 a.m. on Saturdays). But if you somehow run out of things to see and do, you can find information on other California adventures at Carefree Corner.
I'd been to Disneyland so many times before joining the Cast that I never really needed the Fact Card. But now that so much of the old Magic Kingdom is just a memory, I'm sure glad I've still got it.
