Disney World 1971 opening team Cast Members are Rockstars

Disney Culture Speakers
One of the first Cast Members i met when i started in Disney Resort Hotel operations.

 

The left Disney Sevice Award pin (above photo) is rare. First, it’s only available to “October 1, 1971 Opening Day” Cast Members. Second, it’s only visible on current Cast Member nametags.

i met Bob, a Bellman, after i transferred from Disney’s River Country Water Park (the original) in early 1985. At that time he was a 14-year Cast Member and kinda like a rockstar to me.

i still think Bob’s a rockstar (40+year Cast Member) and asked him for permission to snap a pic a few years ago when i was passing through on one of my frequent bicycle rides to Disney’s Magic Kingdom.
