PORTLAND, Ore. (CBS/AP) The 7-year-old Oregon girl who found herself at the center of a national flap about childhood lemonade stands versus government bureaucrats is going to Disneyland.

Julie Murphy managed to make $1,838.31 in her second attempt at selling lemonade - enough to bankroll a trip for her and her mother, Maria Fife.

Multnomah County health inspectors last month shut down Julie's enterprise at a local Portland arts fair because she lacked a food-safety license. News of the lemonade standoff went national.

County Chairman Jeff Cogen later apologized and told health inspectors to use "professional discretion" in enforcing food-safety laws intended for commercial businesses.

As for Julie, Portland radio station KRSK and Les Schwab Tire Centers set her up in business for the afternoon Friday at a tire store in suburban Milwaukie, Ore.
