Disney has shared a look at the first ever Disneyland ticketand the first Disneyland employee badge about a month before the theme park celebrates its 65th anniversary.

What’s happening:

  • Disney D23 — an exclusive fan club for Disney enthusiasts — shared two images Thursday related to the history of Disneyland.
  • The first image showed the first Disneyland employee badge, which is gold with blue text and stars dotted around the outside.

  • The badge was worn by Walt Disney in 1955, according to Disney D23.
  • The second image showed off Disneyland ticket #000001, which was purchased by Roy O. Disney on July 18, 1955.

  • The ticket includes an estimated price of $0.91 with $0.09 tax, making the total price $1, which would be about $9.57 today.
