    It will never be an older person with no family. That's not good PR. It MUST be a kid with a large family to promote the Disney image.

    In all fairness, I'd rather see some little kid get it.

    This reminds me of a story about the release of the last Harry Potter book - some store somewhere was selling a copy an hour early to a single customer via a costume competition. There was a middle-aged woman in an elaborate costume who lost to a little kid whose costume obviously wasn't as good. So she pitched a huge fit about how her costume is better and how she deserved the book and whatnot.. and the cashiers had to quietly tell her that it's a children's book and that it was a lot more special to the little kid. She still angrily disagreed and basically ruined it for the kid.

    Not that Disneyland is the exclusive domain of children - it's designed as an "all ages" sort of place with universal appeal - but obviously it's a much bigger deal for a little kid whose visit to Disneyland will be a cherished lifetime memory. To give it to an Annual Passholder who goes twice a week somehow seems anticlimactic.

    It's all a big PR stunt anyway; why design a PR stunt that doesn't directly suit the needs of your company? Obviously they needed a wholesome little kid with a big family, since that's their target audience. I don't really see anything wrong with that.

    Also:
    No chance. All we are is a steady source of income. They would rather pick a cute kid from middle-of-nowhere Idaho then to pick one of the true financial supporters of the place,
    Er, I'm pretty sure individual daily ticket sales account for more yearly park revenue than AP holders. Your average out of state one-time Disneyland visitor is going to spend a lot more in the park than an AP holder who will likely not be buying excessive amounts of merchandise or food. I mean, family of four buys four park hopper passes, four lunches, four dinners, souvenirs for all of them plus relatives... it's a lot more than myself, who goes a few times a week for 3 hours or so, hardly ever eats inside the park and only buys merchandise once in a great while.

    I would much rather see a priveledge like that go to CHOC where they can use the unlimited pass for dying kids. But that's just my opinion.

    Re: One billion served

    Interesting how it's a kid with 6 siblings who lives in a tiny town OUTSIDE of California and probably will never have enough money to pay for the whole family to go to a Disney theme park outside of the U.S.... I wonder if they would ever give the ticket to the kid if she lived in Anaheim and could actually put it to good use.

    I think it is too bad Disney won't let an AP use it, who has a love of the parks, will put it to use, and someone they will definetely not lose money off of. Didn't someone from out of state or country win something like this last year?
