    November 4, 2011: Was Sid Cahuenga a Real Person?

    The Claim: Sid Cahuenga was a real person, and Sid Cahuenga’s One-of-a-Kind Antiques and Curios shop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a replica of his actual home and shop in Hollywood, California.

    What's the real story?








    Please discuss it here.

    Thanks for the history of Sid Cahuenga's. It should be noted that his wife, the wonderful Pam Brody, is still performing on Sundays and Thursdays in the Rose & Crown Pub in Epcot's World Showcase.

    This is the first time I have heard about this myth at DHS. Very interesting.

    Such a great read, as all of your articles! Though I have never visited Walt Disney World, or Disney's Hollywood Studios, this was so interesting and well written! Thanks as usual Werner!

    I distinctly remember a character actor by the name of Michael Marzella playing the part of Sid Cahuenga in 1998? Am I mistaken? Was Michael playing a different streetmosphere character that opening season?

    Mr. Marzella portrayed Otto Gregor von Aeroflex, Hollywood's greatest director ("Nice to see me today!"). One note about the article, Mr. Dillon did use his real name in the park when he and accompanist Jeff Neuse performed on the little stage that used to be near the eating area next to the HISTK play area.
