    I had the pleasure to work with the famous Maynard a couple weeks back, he is hilarious and he cant believe the international popularity he gets. I was kinda starstruck myself.

    That is very cool!!!


    I think he has a website, but last I checked, it was terribly outdated, as in dates from '07

    Re: Finding Maynard

    I finally met Maynard - albeit painfully briefly! - back in March. It was mid-afternoon on a Saturday, and he was kinda over by the Main Street lockers. I can't be of any help in terms of his schedule, but I'm definitely glad I got to meet him and thank him for all his enthusiasm and so forth.

    I had the pleasure to talk to Maynard for two hours outside of him performing some sort of character. Not only is he wonderful on stage, but he's also a wonderful person simply to talk to. He's a true story teller, and a fantastic Cast Member.

    Re: Finding Maynard

    Maynard is great! I used to work with him over at the Opera House. He doesnt get many shifts at the park as he does sidework in San Diego. Its just too bad how the land grouping and new JC rules moved him around. Pretty much when he is at DL he works either GC or Opera House.

    I had the wonderful pleasure of hanging out with Maynard for about 2 hours in June, he was working at the Opera House. It was one of the highlights of my trip! What a fabulous person, he really adds to the parks with everything that he does.

    Re: Finding Maynard

    I think the best thing about Maynard is that nobody really knows when he's at the park. Being local I've spotted him quite a few times - at the Opera House where he gave a small group of us his own version of the tour, during Mickey's Trick Or Treat giving out candy by GRR, and directing people before the fireworks. I feel a lot of the fun is the unexpectedness of spotting him, like a Where's Waldo kind of game.

    Believe me when you see him and approach him you'll have some fun memories, so I say just keep going to the parks and hope to bump into him.

    ^ What Liz said....

    I've seen him there during the morning hours and I've seen him there at night. In fact, I was with Summer when we found him at the Opera House as we were heading out of the park. And as tired as we both were, we couldn't drag ourselves away from listening to him telling stories and singing and just plain being Maynard!! Randomly finding him in the park is part of the fun!

    I will not post his schedule... that's a weeeee bit creepy.

    Generally you find him on Parade guest control or at the Opera House.

    Maynard is an extremely funny CM, who probably should have been an entertainer.

    This is one of his websites:

    Maynardland!

    And some videos of him:

    YouTube videos of Maynard (you may notice a few MiceChatters on that list )

    Re: Finding Maynard

    He was walking by the motorboat cruise docks during the rally last year and he stopped to chat with us MiceChatters. I really like how he thinks of the park, and it should be pretty obvious to anyone if they only see it. The entire park is a stage, you can be whatever you want to be. Do not limit yourself to the wishing well in which you throw nickles into, let it be the wishing well of certain doom in which only those with the ear of the magikai can hear. Let your imagination wander and don't let your outside life limit you.
