BANK OF AMERICA

Disneyland Bank of America Illustration, 1955
“MEET YOU ON MAIN STREET! We’ll be there. Just as you enter the magic realm of Disneyland you’ll see Bank of America in an authentic, turn-of-the-century setting. Bank of America is proud to be a part of this unusual new California community –just as it’s proud to be a part of 330 other communities throughout the state. While you’re at Disneyland please plan to stop in and say hello – we’ll guarantee you a real, old-fashioned welcome!”

“SPECIAL SOUVENIR MONEY ORDERS! As a memento of your Disneyland visit, Bank of America has provided special, souvenir money orders which may be purchased at the Disneyland Branch in $1, $5, and $10 denominations. Convertible into cash at banks and stores everywhere, they make a picturesque, yet practical, gift to send to the family at home.”

Does anybody have one of THOSE in their box of keepsakes?

A $1 money order from Disneyland's B of A was on ebay a few weeks ago... I forget the final price, but it was way more than I was willing to pay!

I've heard from other bloggers that the money orders are very difficult to find!

I have a $1 Money Order and know several other people who have them. I also know a collector who has a $5 one, but have not heard of anyone having a $10 one.
