My mother kept souvenirs of all sorts from all our family vacations. A while back my father and I came across a collection of program books and ticket stubs covering decades of family vacations, Among these questionable treasures was the 1971 Walt Disney World Preview Guide.

Talking boards are best known under the popularized name Ouija boards, but are a tradition going back at least to the mid-1800s, and possibly thousands of years before that. Spiritualists used them to contact the dearly departed, but since the 1960s their primary use has been by wise-ass high school boys trying to scare the knickers off high school girls, or by writers using a popular culture shortcut to getting their evil phantasms on stage.
