It's Grad Nite time again at Disneyland. These souvenir buttons are from three consecutive years back in that fabulous decade of excess.....the 1980's. The first one is a personal souvenir from my Grad Nite at Disneyland. Wow, it seems so long ago....I guess that's because it was!
A friend that graduated the very next year, picked up this Pluto button for me at his Grad Nite. .
And last but not least, I purchased this Grad Nite '84 button on ebay a few years back. This was the year that the Olympics were held in Los Angeles. To see a better photo/scan of this button, and to read an account of what it was like working in the park during an actual Grad Nite in 1984, check out this great post at the blog: The Best Possible Job. Also, check out this month's posts (and the archives) over at Vintage Disneyland Tickets for some incredible paper items from Disneyland Grad Nites going all the way back to the very first one!
