    Original Disneylanders Add-On

    Buyers of any package that includes "The 55ers" can purchase at a discount autobiographies authored and AUTOGRAPHED by two Disneyland Opening Day legends: "The Last Original Disneylander," signed by Bob Penfield, and "A Walk in the Park" by Disneyland's first tour guide Bob D'Arcy. Multiple reward levels cannot be selected, so DO NOT SELECT THIS REWARD LEVEL. Simply increase your "55ers" pledge by $15 for Penfield, $14 for D'Arcy, or $29 for both. These books are pre-signed, meaning they are limited in quantity and cannot be personalized. No California sales tax or additional postage will be charged.
