Disneyland’s first customer has been using his lifetime pass for 64 years


Disneyland in California is one of the happiest places on earth. But it would be an even happier place if annual passes didn't cost anywhere from $400 to $1400 a year. 

Saying that, Dave MacPherson might just be the happiest person you spot in Disneyland because he's only ever paid once in the 64 years he's been visiting the park annually. 

In 1955, the then 22-year-old MacPherson was studying at Long Beach State College when he saw on television that Disneyland was opening to the public for the first time on July 18. 

The student decided he should try and be first in line for the opening, and turned up at 2 a.m. on the 18th.
