Each guest who wanted one, was given a stick-on badge like the one pictured below. You were asked to tell the Cast Member at Guest Services the first year you came to Walt Disney World. They then put a sticker on your badge for that year.
As I had my first visit to Walt Disney World in March of 1976 for my senior class trip, I go way back. This is my reason for the Throwback Thursday memory for today, and it's a fond one!!
