Parades are a longtime tradition of the Disney theme parks, with the first on Disneyland’s opening day. Here’s some photos I took of The World According to Goofy parade at Disneyland in 1992.  The lavish parade represented Goofy in various settings including the Italian “Renais-sauce,” “Egyptian Daze” and running for president of the United States. I’d vote for him!

Here’s another fun photo of Marcia Miner, when she was the 1967 Disneyland Ambassador to the World. In this image, Marcia is ready to go on tour with seven familiar faces to promote a theatrical re-release of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Before home videos, Disney would re-release their animated features in theaters every few years, and Disney entertainers, cast members, such as Marcia, Disney characters, often including Mickey Mouse and others would tour cities to let delighted audiences know about these films and the latest happenings at Disneyland.

If you missed my interview with Marcia, you can LISTEN HERE.

My Last Two Days as a Disney Cast Member

For an amazing 31 years, I was part of the Magic of The Walt Disney Company. Growing up near Disneyland, a job at the Magic Kingdom was always in my plan. I loved Disneyland, the movies and watching the Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday nights with my parents. In December of 1978, while a freshman in college, my dream was realized as I was hired to play a role as a Merchandise Host in Adventureland and Frontierland. I felt so proud walking through the doors of
The Disney University for orientation. Little did I know eventually I would be part of The Disney University at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank for 16 years of my career. In my 31 years, I spent six years at Disneyland in Theme Park Operations, my time at the University and ultimately my last nine years in Disney Worldwide Outreach. I was given an incredible opportunity to build upon my skills of selling rubber snakes and shrunken heads next to the Jungle Cruise on a journey that would ultimately lead me to having global responsibility for Disney’s Philanthropy, Community Relations, Volunteerism and Cause Marketing.
