Special Passholder Event

Last night, Disneyland held a special event for selected annual passholders. Those lucky enough to receive an invitation were able to visit the park from 8 a.m. to midnight, after normal operating hours. Special treats for this event included:

  • The opportunity to feel superior to “normal” guests who had to leave the park 4 hours before you did.
  • The opportunity to feel horrible guilt as hordes of very young “normal” guests cry because they don’t understand why they have to leave when all these other people get to stay.
  • Near continual performance of Main Street’s famous “soap suds for snow” presentation, making it the go-to spot for guests who wanted a free shampoo or stroller wash.
  • A special performance of Fantasmic! (marred only by the fact that the dragon was being refurbished and had to perform without a head, the Mark Twain’s performance was carried out completely from its static position in dry dock, and Micky Mouse was sick* so his part was played by Big Al).
  • Many unusual characters were available to take photos with guests, such as Robin Hood, Baloo, and Cynthia Harris.
  • As a special treat, Photopass photographers were available and guests could download electronic versions of any photos taken at the party from the Photopass website without having to pay a shipping fee.
  • At the end of the evening, all guests were given a Christmas tree ornament tastefully plastered with advertisements for upcoming ABC holiday specials.

*Mickey Mouse is currently not appearing at Disneyland because he has the flu. Apparently, he did not get a flu shot because Daisy has convinced Minnie that it will give him Mouskeautism.
