(Disneyland, 1955) An extremely rare gold Disneyland opening day press preview ticket and accompanying invitation letters. As Disneyland's opening day events were being broadcast on live TV, guests and VIPs were requested to arrive at different times to accommodate the televised ceremonies. This particular pass features an entrance time of 2:30pm, and includes information on the reverse about ABC's live broadcast of the events. The gold ticket was reserved for VIP guests, such as this one for Los Angeles Herald-Express editor Tom Caton. The VIP ticket admitted Tom and up to four guests into the park. The invitation letter explicitly invites Caton's family to the opening and also references a second letter with more detailed admission regulations. The ticket measures 3.5"x6.5" and is in good condition with a few small wrinkles and edge wear. Measuring 11"x8.5" and 4.25"x 9.5" respectively, the (2) letters and envelope are in good used condition with horizontal creases on the letters from mailing, a torn right edge to the envelope from opening, and edge wear to all three.
