What's up, Doc?

Well, I don't mean to suggest that the Disney organization is a lost cause, and I certainly hope you're right, that the newer management can turn the trend around. If this fellow Iger is as good as...

I was lucky enough to see Disneyland just 4-years after Walt's death. His influence there was still pretty strong. In the last nearly 50-years, there has been so much great stuff torn down, and so...

The Astrolift.

I believe you. There was a break room, where I saw the guy playing Brer Bear get out of his costume. The darn thing weighed 90-pounds and he would be near passing out from the heat.

What I learned...

Disney World is honeycombed underground with utility corridors, which are about as magical as missle silos. So instead of getting to stroll through the park on my way to the Jungle Cruise, and get...

Pink Things was the only drawback to working at La Salle's. In '71, I moved to Orlando and worked 4-months spieling on the Jungle Cruise at Disney World. I thought working for Disney would be fun,...
