One month earlier, Disneyland had "Small World Days". Now it was America Sings' turn in the spotlight and once again, park guests did not have to give up an "E" ticket in order to experience it (or was America Sings already a "D" ticket by 1981?) The ad reads, "Snap a souvenir photo with Sam the Eagle".....was there ever a walk-around character of Sam the Eagle? I miss America Sings. I would rather watch those characters perform in the Carousel Theater instead of just float past them briefly on Splash Mountain. Oh well, I guess that's PROGRESS!
One of the souvenirs being sold in the park at this time, were postcard books that included eight regular sized postcards attached to a mini version of the postcard. I guess the idea was that you could tear along the perforation, send the postcard to someone and still have the smaller version attached to the book to keep for yourself. There was a postcard book for each of the "lands" and there was also one with shots of the park's 25th Anniversary "Family Reunion Parade" from 1980. The Tomorrowland book featured two interior scenes from America Sings. Here is the entire postcard book.
The front cover was the only postcard that did not include the "mini version."
The back cover:
Wouldn't THIS monorail still look futuristic today?
By the 1980's, wasn't the Matterhorn considered strictly a Fantasyland attraction?
Too bad Space Mountain doesn't look like this anymore!
Geez, everything at Disneyland was better back then, wasn't it?
This group sang, "Hound Dog" and "See You Later, Alligator" in Act 4 of America Sings.
The Swamp Boys sang, "Polly Wolly Doodle" in Act 1.
