  1. I wanted to know if there were any give aways or contests that I could enter to get a couple of tickets to Disneyland. I’ve always loved Disneyland since it opened in 1955. A cousin used to take me and my brother there much back then, I, now, have been very sick and multiple operations. I’d like to got to see the new park as a guest before anything happens to me. It may not, I seem to be getting better, but this is on my bucket list before I pass on. Anything you could do with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for always being the happiest place on Earth.
