Early 1970s Disneyland Magic Key Tickets - Grad Nite 1984 Admission Ticket - The Little Old Town of Rainbow Ridge

Here is a partial "Magic Key Book" of tickets that somehow survived one of our family's trips to the Park in the early 1970s. It is missing its cover, but the coupons are still attached and the back of the book has a nice listing of attractions "back in the day."This is the back cover. Whoa! You could ride 10 attractions for less that $5.00! Not quite Main Gate admission prices today!
Finally, we have the back of the Magic Key Coupon and rear page of the coupon book. Tink looks great, as always.
One of the attractions available in the days before Big Thunder was the Mine Train through Nature's Wonderland. The little town of Rainbow Ridge, where you boarded the train, is pictured below. Most of these buildings made the transition to Big Thunder when it opened in 1979.
So that we might move ahead from the 70s, enjoy this 1984 Grad Nite admission ticket, front and back. Careful not to violate those stringent Disney Grad Nite rules, you party animals! By the way, why weren't men allowed to wear a turtleneck sweater? (I mean other than the obvious fashion violation: "Freeze, Fashion Police. You in the turtleneck, show us your license and registration.").
