Thirty years ago TODAY, I paid my first-ever visit to the Walt Disney Studio in Burbank, California.

The Mouse on the front, the Cheshire Cat on the back!

What pleasure I got from a small piece of card and – guess what? – somehow, on leaving the studio at the end of an unforgettable day that, for a rabid Disney geek, was a dream come true, I inadvertently managed not to follow the instruction printed in bold!

Curious how such trifling things are often a 'pass' to treasured memories!

However, I have to say, a later pass (2001) isn't quite so evocative...

Wow they knew how to do passes in those days! The 'golden age' of visitor passes??

My own pass is much more in line with your 2001 one, but it nevertheless provided me with a massive amount of pleasure! :)
