      How cynical of you Kristof...but probably true hehe. If it had been someone from California, for whom DLRP was a lifetime trip, a free night's stay and Annual Passport wouldn't perhaps be the best possible prizes...but I guess that's just luck. Pretty bad if you already had an annual passport too...or were staying in the hotel NY and got a free night at the Sante Fe...this is a potential disaster...now I'm cynical...

        It probably would not have been an American. As Anthony from MagicForum noted; they were probably not so much the exact 200,000,000th guests as the perfect French family to cross the turnstiles on a perfect sunny day nearest the 200,000,000th guest.

          The only issue I have with these special announcements are the press value they have. Disney chooses whatever family comes thru the turnstyles that fit the "idea" of a clean cut Disney family and bestows on them this fake title, just to brag about the park for publicity. I wonder who the actual 200,000,000th poor guest really was.. who went totally unrecognized.

            Why so cynical everybody? The family got to stay at the new Empire State Club at Hotel New York, the newest and most luxuriest place to stay at the resort.

            And besides, this is great news and explains why the parks had a special offer during high season for passholders to bring friends along for just 15 euro's: getting to put out this press release is the perfect way to illustrate how well the parks are doing; Untill like about a year ago, the only news to be picked up by newspapers around Europe on the resort was negative, mostly about the financial state.

            The start of the 15th anniversary marked the first positive-only news about the parks and with good financial reports and news like this, the positive articles just keep coming.

            It's news-bits like these that might very well mean the difference between new rides or slow years...!

              You are absolutely correct... but I personally wish these promotional stunts weren't so.. staged.

                I know what you mean, I understand why they've done it, but it does unsettle me a little.

                    You are absolutely right. Until a little more than a year ago most of the Dutch newspapers only brought negative news. Even a positive thing like for example the opening of Buzz would end up in the papers like: The themepark Euro Disney (), which is in great financial trouble since its opening in 1992, is about to open a new attraction. Etc, etc.

                    Somehow since the start of the 15th anniveray, the tone in the Dutch media has become more and more positive.

                    So although I doubt that this family is actually the real 200th mln. guest and it does feel a little staged, it is actually good publicity.

                      All publicity is good publicity! Actually, in DLRP's case, maybe not...
