Disneyland's Dream Machine Tickets - 1990

As part of Disneyland 35th anniversary celebration they created the “Dream Machine” promotion. Similar to 1986’s “Gift Giver” promotion (link), every guest got a fun ticket and a chance to win anything from a pin to new car or in the case of these tickets, nothing!





The legalese of this promotion was interesting; Prizes are awarded randomly, different values, different days, whatever, so no odds are given. If a minor wins a car they really didn’t, their parents did. If you win the airline tickets you are required to sign a release of liability, no suing the mouse if you crash. Claim your award “promptly” or you’re not getting it.





There were 24 different versions in four color variations. These are nicely printed on glossy cardstock so even the loser “no win” tickets are fun. An odd mix of characters, the classics along with 1990 Gadget, Tummi Gummi and Roger Rabbit.

The coolest part is that you have the whole set!

The car was one per day--so it was definitely better odds on a rainy day. They were all Geos and the model was changed on a quarterly basis.

The prize crew was given a window of time (30 minutes?) at the beginning of the day so they could be ready at the backstage gate when the lucky person hit the jackpot.
