February 1964 Walt poses at the airport with Mrs. G.E. Faire. Grandma of the carousel of progress. Ms. Faire, a duplicate of the animatronic for the attraction, minus the inner workings, was flown around the country via TWA airlines to help promote the General Electric exhibit at the New York world's fair.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
