Friday Find: Indiana Jones Commemorative Passport (1995)
The Indiana Jones™ Adventure ride debuted at Disneyland on March 3, 1995. I was a Cast Member back then as a Main Street Merchandise Host. I remember those first couple weeks that as soon as the park opened, many made a beeline for the Indiana Jones ride. The lines would get to several hours long. That first week, the lines would be so long that it would spill out of the Indiana Jones queue, wind through Adventureland and sometimes go down Main Street.
My husband, MacSparky, was an Indiana Jones fan from the very beginning of the movie series. I bought this Indiana Jones commemorative passport (ticket) for his birthday.
This item was a Cast Member exclusive that you could only purchase at Company D (the Cast Member store). I did purchase it unframed. I can't remember how much I paid for it but I know it initially cost me more to frame it than the actual ticket. In 1995, the price of Disneyland admission was $33.00.
We have this fun piece of Disneyland and Indiana Jones history hanging in our hallway. It always brings back lots of memories of working at Disneyland and reflects my husband's love of the Indiana Jones franchise.
