"What luck! Gene was one of the fortunate VIPs to receive a Gold Pass to Disneyland for 1961! She'd been a Disney fan since she got her first Snow White doll when she was about 15 (and the whole set of seven little Dwarfs --- 11-inch stuffed dolls with painted faces and velvet costumes.) So, with her Gold Pass and friend and co-worker Madra Lord in tow, Gene hit the park! What fun she had on the Matterhorn, waving at the mermaids "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," exploring the newly opened Snow White Grotto with its marble figures straight from Italy, twirling in the Mad Tea Party Tea Cups (that made Madra a little queasy!)... But in mid-afternoon, Gene took time out to change in to a lovely suit for a quick personal appearance at Sleeping Beauty Castle.
As the dusk set in and Tinker Bell made her flight from the Matterhorn to Sleeping Beauty Castle, the lights flickered on across the park. Gene gathered an exhausted Madra and started to leave. But before she could get through the gate, she got a special farewell from Mickey himself.
