    Ah, very interesting indeed! That's back when my Dad worked there. I should ask if he remembers the stunt they played since he used to work at the TT in Adventureland.

    There's nothing better than a good story that's well written, thank you for posting that. I enjoyed it.

    Great article! Paul Castle Sr. was my neighbor way back when, nice to hear he is still remembered as the longest running Mickey, his wife was Tinker Bell at that same time. Went to school with his son, Paul Castle Jr.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Excuse me as I cry! that was wonderful.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    OH MY GOSH.... what a great article! That guy can write! I went from belly-laughing to wiping tears of emotion from my eyes.

    What is it about that place that makes it different from any other location, that reaches to our hearts and brings out every emotion, hope, and dream, whether we've had the priviledge to be a cast member or not? Regardless of our various walks-of-life it brings us together and joins us in shared emotion; something we all have in common. And maybe thats the heart and soul of Disney's magic.

    And certainly worth celebrating for the next 18 months.

    Awesome article!

    What an interesting article. I can't believe that they wouldn't let Mowdli grow his hair out/let him wear a wig.

    And LORD FORBID if they should actually have an Islander or Middle Easterner play Mowgli either.

    Thanks for posting the link buddy. Us out-of-towners would never have seen it otherwise. It was a great article.
    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.

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to write a post after reading the article. I thought it was an exceptionally good piece.

    Glad I could spread it around the country via MiceChat!
