Has anyone read the amazing story on Jim Hill Media (don't close the page just yet!) about the first guest at Disneyland?? It is really amazing, and I am so jealous!
This guy stayed up from 2am until the park's opening on July 18, 1955, just to be the first guest inside Disneyland. Apparantly, because he had college that day, he used the bathroom and left .
The really amazing part of the story is that this guy was contacted by Walt Disney Productions and awarded a lifetime passport to the Happiest Place on Earth - not to mention the parks at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort Paris. The pass doesn't get him into Tokyo Disney Resort or Hong Kong Disneyland Resort though.
Don't you think that is amazing? Access to Disneyland, Disney's California Adventure, the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios? (Well not so much Walt Disney Studios) Just for staying up from 2am?
But tragically, the man lives in Utah and apparantly doesn't get around much. It didn't say anything about him visiting Paris, but he was mobbed for autographs at a recent trip to Walt Disney World for being the first paying guest at Disneyland. Wow. Impressive.
Is there anyone else (apart from ex-suits, suits or Disney Legends) that hold lifetime passports? And any thoughts on why the pass isn't good for Hong Kong?
