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