Animal Kingdom has first Extra Dream Hour

Several unsuspecting guests boarding Kilimanjaro Safaris at Animal Kingdom on October 28th, 2006, were greeted by the Disney Dream Squad and had wristbands strapped to their wrists.

These guests had won the “Extra Dream Hour” prize in the park to enjoy attractions in the park after it had closed to the general public, with little to no wait.

Though noted in the official rules for the contest, this is the first reported occurance of this prize being awarded.
