    Re: Disney voice actor Dallas McKennon dies at 89

    Sad to hear it...he seemed like quite a character from seeing him on some of the Extinct Attractions DVD's. You can still hear Dallas everday though at Disneyland, giving the Big Thunder spiel..."Hang on to them hats and glasses, because this here is the wildest ride in the wilderness!". I believe he also recorded the narration for the Mine Train through Nature's Wonderland, and was at least one of the County Bears backup characters.
