Rest in Peace, friend. You gave us years of entertainment, now it's time for your reward. Thanks for everything.
As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.
This is so sad. He will be missed.
Art will be missed by all.

Another part of my childhood gone. But what a wonderful and long life he had!! Thanks Art for the memories!
