These handsome tickets were offered in the first years after the Lilly Belle Presidential Car was added to the Disneyland Railroad. Japanese Emperor Hirohito was one of the first guests to use the car in 1975 which is possibly why one of the original Grand Canyon observation cars were converted to a secure, VIP travel venue within the park.
Owned by the Disney family company RETLAW, these tickets were issued only by them and not by the park itself. Recently, for a few years and after a conservation refurbishment, the car was open to the public through special arrangement. As the car goes back to exclusive service, these original tickets are the only way to experience the Lilly Belle. The tickets have a lifetime validity as there is no expiration date.
Note the low serial number.
Ticket measures 2.5"x7.5" and is in very fine condition with light edge wear and a feint vertical crease towards the left edge. Text on reverse-side is slightly fading in parts, but is still easily creadable, the black ink is nice and dark, and is in good condition.
