    Cast Member Photo ID's in the 1960's??

    I am doing research for Mickey 3 and am having trouble locating the answer to my question: Did Disneyland have photo ID's on cast members in the mid-1960's?

    I'd appreciate any help you can give!

    Thank you!

    This is getting buried...lol

    Are there any longtime cast members in here who might know?

    Thanks again!

    I have Earl Vilmer's photo ID, but I don't know what date it is. The photo is in color, and I'm guessing it's from the 1960s. I'll try to remember to look at it tonight.

    Then again, I'm not srue Vilmer qualifies as what most of us think as CMs.

    Isn't there someone on the boards that collects name tags? I think they would be the most likely person to be able to confirm what was used in the various departments back then.

    Name tags and photo IDs are different, but SosaiX is the guy you're thinking of.

    A 1965 CM photo ID is on Davelandweb.com's /tomorrowland/flightcircle.html page.

    The CM was hired and employed by the L.M. Cox Mfg. Co. (maker of Timble-Drome model airplanes and sponsor of the Flight Circle) -- I dunno if Disneyland-hired CMs had a different style ID card.

    That's pretty much how Vilmer's ID looks like, Mr. W. Different color though, as I recall.
