  1. Club 55 Loses Ray VanDeWarker

    Ray VanDeWarker, the second to the last “Club 55er” to retire from Disneyland, passed away last night at the age of 79.

    He retired in 1996; Ray’s best friend from high school, Bob Penfield, who was hired by Disneyland into Operations at the same time, days before the park opened, became the last of the originals to retire a year later.

  2. Disney Road Trip! A Pre-Trip Checklist

    This is going to be a bit different of an entry, but one that I think can help many of you that drive to your vacation destination. I mean, who wouldn't want to turn up "Holiday Road" on the radio or sing show tunes, or play the license plate game while driving.

    Disneyland’s Entertainment Division had merged its PhotoPass and Character departments in late 2009. The idea was to facilitate the photographers working even more closely with the characters—much to
