You’ve probably got a purse full of old receipts and ticket stubs that actually need to be thrown away.

But keeping old bits of paper paid off for one woman when a 34-year-old free admission for Disneyland was still accepted.

Tamia Richardson got the free ticket in 1985 when she was 14.

It was her first trip to Disneyland in California and the park was celebrating its 30th birthday with a promotion offering a prize to every 30th guest received a prize.

Tamia, from Alberta, Canada, won a pass to return to Disneyland free of charge – but she didn’t use it until this week – 34 years later.

She’d been back to the park a few times since but had forgotten about the ticket until she found it among some old pictures and momentos.

Amazingly the park honoured the ticket, despite prices jumping from $16.50 (£13.90) in 1985 to $149 (£122) now.

She brought along a picture of herself in front of a sign that read ‘Gift Giver Extraordinaire’ to prove her ticket was read.

She told USA Today: ‘I was really hoping they’d take it. I was less positive than more positive because it was pretty old.’

Luckily, after consulting with a manager, the Disneyland employee at the entrance accepted the ticket and exchanged it for a new daily pass.

Tamia visited the park with her daughters, 15 and 17 and enjoyed some of the new rides that have been built since her first visit, including the new Toontown section, opened in 1993, and the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, added this year.
