“Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Disneyland proudly presents our spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination. In thousands of sparkling lights, and electro-synthe-magnetic musical sounds: the Main Street Electrical Parade!”
On December 29, 1956, Oscar Martinez started his Disney career as a busboy in a Fantasyland quick-service location, and has been at the cafe on Main Street, U.S.A. for the last 50 years. Disneyland had been open about 17 months when Oscar came aboard and had never worked in a restaurant in his life. With over 6o years of faithful service, he is the longest tenured employee at Disneyland.
The Walt Disney Company is honoring those military members on Active Duty and those that have retired by offering discounted park hopper tickets to Disneyland and Walt Disney World. As a retired member of the United States Air Force, my family and I have taken advantage of Disney’s generosity on many occasions in the past with family trips to Disneyland and have a trip planned next month!
