What do you call the best perk an employee could ever have? A Silver Pass! With this little card you and up to three additional guests get free entry into Disneyland and Walt Disney World. And did I mention you got free parking too! As an Imagineer I got two cards, one for me, and one for my wife. Now that doesn’t mean we could get eight people into the park because you could only use one card, once a day. If you’re sneaky you could get five in, four on the card and then the cast member enters through the employee entrance. But I never, ever did that!
This card really spoiled us. After an evening Angels baseball game we would drop by the park on the way home to watch the fireworks and do a ride or two. When I was working on Splash my daughter would invite one or two of her friends for a day in the park and then meet me for lunch. Those were good times!
