My parents probably have some older pictures (I'll get them when I'm home next week), but for today, I'll go back as far as I can.
I worked as a "Cast Member" in the shops on Main Street. Main Street East, I believe. These two pictures were taken at the souvenir stand on the right just after you come through the tunnel into the park.
I worked in most of the other shops as well. I filled in one night for a girl who worked in the Market House. I was working with another girl who was also filling in. Neither of us had ever worked there. We couldn't find prices for things like, hot tea or pickles...so we had to make them up! Shh....don't tell anyone!
Splash Mountain was finished during the summer of 1989 and all the cast members recieved these:
Since I'm from Oregon, I didn't know anyone in California that didn't already work at Disneyland, so I never used the pass. My then boyfriend (now husband!) visited after my "summer" was over (I'm a quitter and didn't last the whole summer.) and we visited the park together. Even rode Splash Mountain twice...and waited in line for TWO hours! Our kids think we're crazy! They think 20 minutes is a long time!
Here are Mike and I on the Skyway to Fantasyland. I miss that ride.
(Hey, nice tank top!)
