Disneyland Resort Honored 34-Year-Old Free Ticket
I love stories like this – they show Walt’s spirit is alive and well. Basically, a Canadian woman found an old voucher from 1985, and presented it at Disneyland Resort in California.
They honored it!
KTLA takes it from here:
The Los Angeles Times reported (via KTLA):
In 1985, Tamia Richardson was a 14-year-old high school student when she walked through the turnstile at Disneyland and won a prize.
For the 30th anniversary of the theme park, Disneyland was running a promotional gimmick to give away gifts, including a new Cadillac, to the 30th visitor and every multiple of 30 thereafter. Tamia won the least expensive prize: a paper ticket emblazoned with the silhouette of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and the words “Admit one to Disneyland.”
Fast-forward 34 years, and Richardson, now a teacher and school counselor in Alberta, Canada, dug the dogeared ticket out of a box of keepsakes and trekked to the park Thursday with her teenage daughters. To her surprise, the park accepted the ticket for free admission and exchanged it for a new daily pass with access to both Disneyland and its sister park California Adventure Park.
It took 34 years for castmembers to plus the expeience for Ms. Richardson, but they sure made it a memorable visit to Disneyland Resort!
Many of us have had a genuine “plussing” experience in the Disney Parks. What was yours?
