    Re: Disney Parks Welcome 2-Billionth Guest - 5/2/06 (Disneyland Resort Press Release)

    ^ It has been happening since day ONE.

    (Info from Wikipedia, but I think I wrote this paragraph, and I am editing it a bit)

    On Monday, July 18, 1955 crowds started to gather in line as early as 2 a.m., and the first person to buy a ticket and enter the park was David MacPherson (A young Adult in College). Walt Disney decided to have a photo taken with two children, Michael Schwartner and Christine Vess instead, and the photo of the three always carries a caption along the lines of "Walt Disney with the first two guests of Disneyland." MacPherson, Schwartner and Vess all received lifetime passes to every single Disney-owned park in the world.

    I am uploading photos as I speak....
    So you are saying that APers have no chance of winning. Infact, you had to be a cute little kid to win perferable one from out of town. Sounds like fraud to me.

    No "contest" was involved therefore "no chance of winning" was available, just the awarding of promotional gifts for publicity usage by a company (at their discretion) on it's private property.
