    Did anyone else know about this, or has no one really cared?

    I think that I vaguely remember this but I think I was preoccupied with my own trip in a couple weeks. I guess we all now have to hope and wait to be the 3 billionth visitor so we can get these perks.

    How lucky it would be to be her. Just to be going to the park, then to actually be the billionth person. I also didnt realise there had been so many people but it does make sense. Also, seems like colorado springs keeps showing up everywhere i go haha

    I still can't believe even after reading it in black and white it seems impossible! But.. it is Disney.

    After reading what the Gazette had to say it sounds like they just kinda walked around and picked her out of the crowd... since everything's automated there anymore I think it should by the ACTUAL 2 billionth person... not just who they decide
