HOLLYWOOD — It was the perfect place for the after-party of a movie about a kid’s dreams coming true — Disneyland.

Two thousand guests at the premiere of “Disney’s the Kid,” were given keys to the Magic Kingdom Sunday, including fast passes to popular rides such as Space Mountain and Splash Mountain, after five simultaneous screenings of the Walt Disney Pictures’ film at AMC 30 at the Block in the city of Orange.

“To be able to come to Disneyland and be told come as our guest, do what you want, it’s a dream come true,” said pic’s helmer Jon Turteltaub.

“Everybody has dreams and aspirations,” agreed Dick Cook, chairman of Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group.

The theme of many movies, he said, is “aspirations and inspirations, making the most of life and enjoying life.”

One person who seemed to be enjoying life was young co-star Spencer Breslin. “I get to see the movie and see Disneyland. It can’t get better than this,” he enthused.

Among those being a kid again were pic’s stars Bruce Willis and Lily Tomlin; producers Christina Steinberg and Hunt Lowry; Walt Disney Studios chairman Peter Schneider; co-prexies of marketing Geoffrey Ammer and Oren Aviv; Buena Vista Motion Pictures Group prez Nina Jacobson; and guests Michael Chiklis, Teri Garr, Cuba Gooding Jr., Helen Hunt, Virginia King, Michelle Kwan, Christine Lahti, Matthew Perry, Brad Renfro and Michelle Trachtenberg.
