Disneyland Gold Cards

Walt Disney would personally deliver these Gold Cards to the Wrather family at the Disneyland Hotel and they were all personally signed by him. Chris Wrather told me an interesting story about his mother, Bonita Granville Wrather. When she was in final negotiations to sell the Hotel, she asked Mr. Eisner if the family could retain the rights to Gold Cards for life. Mr. Eisner happily agreed. The deal was then completed.

1965 Gold Card - Just a year before Mr. Disney passed away.

1966 Gold Card - This would be the last that Walt Disney would sign for the Wrather family.
