During the Disneyland 30th Anniversary, Canada native Tamia Richardson won a park ticket. Now, it’s been 34 years since she won the park ticket and Tamia was ready to return to the park and celebrate!
Richardson won the ticket as part of an anniversary promotion that the Disneyland Resort was having in 1985. At the time, she was only 14 years of age. Now, with two teenage daughters of her own, she decided to finally use the ticket.
As she returned to Disneyland, Tamia was a bit nervous to hand over her 34 year old ticket in exchange for entry. Luckily, after verification, she was able to enjoy a Disney day with her two girls. Tamia was very eager to experience everything new that the park has to offer, including Galaxy’s Edge.
Disneyland has since done similar promotions for its anniversary. The resort always celebrates with exclusive merchandise, eats, and experiences. For Tamia, all she had to do was be the 30th guest to enter the park gates. A ticket went out to every 30th guest that entered. Richardson had gone back to the park after her prize winning trip. However, she never thought to use the ticket until sh recently discovered it among some old photos.
