Ticket Boofs, 1972

Where did you go when you want to buy tickets at Disneyland? Well, first you found a boof. It was pretty hard to miss the ones out front, although you could buy tickets at various spots around the park once you were inside. I'm kind of surprised (and maybe just a little bit disappointed) by my photos from 1972, not a single long-haired hippie to be found. Where are the freaks?? Probably hanging out at "love-ins" and "be-ins", and maybe even a "laugh-in"! Hippies, what can ya do.


Meanwhile, prices have gone up. Now a family of four (two adults and two young 'uns) will have to shell out around $24 to get in! Outrageous! Little did they know back then that by 2008 it could cost you in the neighborhood of $400 for four single-day park hoppers. Yeesh.

Anyway, here's a closeup of the signage on the boofs for those of you who are interested in tickets. I know you're out there!!

Dig the lady in the mini skirt! At least I'm assuming she has a skirt on under that super short coat. Maybe she's wearing hot pants. The hippies were probably already inside the park and taking over Tom Sawyer Island!

Actually it appears that she has on leggings, ala Twiggy.

And the hippies are all hiding, sleeping wrapped in blankets since it is cold and hippies don't like the cold. Instead they hibernate during winter.

Reminder: Long hair (code word for hippies) were banned from the park for a while. The excuse was that the long hair would get caught in the rides. However, they did let women in.

Ticket Boofs ROCK! These are sweet, thanks Major. I’ll take the Deluxe 15 ticket book please…. Oh, the hippies never paid for tickets, they would bum then off people in the parking lot!
