What do you give a 58-year-old Magic Kingdom?

What do you give a 59-year-old Magic Kingdom on her birthday? Especially when she has everything, like she did when I first pinned on a Mickey Mouse nametag:

A restored Tomorrowland? Nice, but totally expected. How about these ideas, taken directly from Your Souvenir Guide for 1983:

Complete banking services between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. every day Disneyland is open

A place to sign in the Disneyland Guest Book

A room full of fun for a penny, nickel, dime, or quarter

Small plants, unusual man-made flowers

Orville Reddenbacher Gourmet Popping Corn

A tree-top home built by an ingenious shipwrecked family

Choice antiques, reproductions, and rare gifts for the most discriminating collector

A foot-stompin’, knee-slappin’, country-western revue featuring a cast of 18 un-bear-able bear-itones

Frontier fun for a nickel, dime, or quarter

Indian arts and crafts, including a large selection of turquoise jewelry

Fort Wilderness

Keel Boats

A complete selection of Pendleton woolens, yardage, and accessories

Dancing girls, Slue Foot Sue, and Pecos Bill

Tricky currents and rapids

Dolls and toys to delight all ages

An aerial view of the Magic Kingdom...

Oh, heck... Just give her all of them.

Happy Birthday, Disneyland!

A very fine list, indeed...wishing they would bestow her with all of that and more. Good memories. Found your blog via Tours Departing Daily's.
