An odd thought popped into my head today. I wonder who was the first person to ride the different rides at Disneyland before they opened. I am sure they used human like dummies to test saftey and such at first. But there was a time that the first person - imagineer? engineer? construction worker? - was the first human being to sit in a rocket on Disneyland's Space Mountain and ride it for the very first time, a human being sit in a boat on Pirates and be the first person(s) to actually ride through the attraction. I would be curious who those people were?
