Hey Kevin,

I've been doing ballroom dancing for about 15 years now, and I look back with great yearning at the type of social entertainment that used to be offered at not only Disneyland, but throughout North America in that far more glorious era. In those days, night clubs offered big band or small jazz combos, vocalists singing standards from The Great American Songbook, and dinners and dancing. Where has that sort of sophisticated entertainment gone? I reckon folks like you, me, and our friend Stacia were all born about 20 to 30 years too late!

They used to sell special ticket books for those who wanted to show up for an evening of music and dancing (and rides of course)!
