1967 Tomorrowland Press Pass


This is a stick-on decal given to the press covering the 7/2/67 opening of the new Tomorrowland, which featured the debut of the beloved Peoplemover and Adventures Thru Inner Space. There's a nice press kit for this opening out there, but I've never acquired it. Though I do have a really cool informational handout and press schedule with awesome graphics that I will post at some point. It also features the rocket logo seen here, except the heavy-stock paper is cut in such a way that you can make the rocket look like it's blasting off. Too cool.

I can't wait to see more '67 Tomorrowland stuff. The 1998 Tomorrowland media credential isn't as neat as this vintage one, but they do both feature rockets...

I can' wait either! NICE TICKET!!!! I so wish I could go back to 67' and use it! I love the low serial #....

Wow! I can't believe it! I was there on that day (my dad was press) and I wore a sticker just like that. I never thought I'd see one again.

Of course it's long gone--as is, I'm very sorry to say, the press kit that we had. I do have some Kodak Brownie B&Ws from that day somewhere at home. Maybe I'll dig them up over the holiday and send some scans to Matterhorn, Daveland or the Major...

Great paper items jedblau---

I wish they would have left the 1967 Tomorrowland intact.

That's 'progress' I suppose...
