(Disneyland, 1978-79) An exceptionally rare park-used poster created to announce Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland. The hand-silkscreened poster was mounted to the back of a large sheet of plexiglass and displayed at the park beginning in 1978. While Fall, 1979 is listed as the date for the Inaugural Run for the attraction, the earlier planned date of June, 1978 can still be faintly seen behind the newer date. A matching poster to this one was also used at Walt Disney World, however it listed different opening dates from Disneyland, which opened a year prior. Measuring 45.5"x32.75", the poster is in good condition overall with a few creases throughout the poster, some fading to the date areas, minor edge-wear, and a crack in the plexiglass near the bottom-left corner. This is the only surviving example of this rare poster that we have ever seen.
