    Tony Baxter and steve Martin are excellent choices. Each of them are iving legends, and both began their Disney careers as blue collar rank and file cast members. Tony and steve are a good exaple and an inspiration for average hard woking disadvantaged people that persevere in their pursuit of big impossible dreams.

    Julie remains as talented as ever. How cool it isthat both Julie and dick continue to perform and make movies. Just a spoonful of ugar makes the medicinego down....in the most delightfully timeless way!

    His salute and invisibility leave me rolling with laughter! He has so many hilarious gestures!. I would love to share his head arrow whie we shout out "We're wild and crazy guys!!!"

    Dick Van Dyke because he's just such a nice and fun guy, and has plenty of great memories.

    Kurt Russell because, well, hey, it's Kurt Russell, not only does he have plenty of Disney memories, but also - he was both Snake Plissken and Elvis! So he's got plenty of other movie memories to regale us with as well.

    Diane Disney Miller because.... well, because she's fairly reclusive and there haven't been very many interviews with her, and it'd be a thrill to pick her brain about a million different things (plus, I wrote her husband Ron, former Disney CEO, when I was a kid, so there's a little bit of a history there).

    And lastly, Dean Jones, because, like Dick Van Dyke and Kurt Russell, he's just a really nice guy and he's got a load of Disney memories that I'd just love to hear about. Plus, there's just something about his voice that's so reassuring, so....Disneylike.

    Not to say I'd turn down a meeting or a long chat with any of the other folks on the list, though. They'd all be fascinating to listen to.
    Kurt, Dick, Diane and Dean are awesome choices. Disneyland might not exist had it not been for Diane and her sister. That established classy Disney movie star voice might not exist had it not been for Kurt, Dick and Dean. I wonder if Herbie might take us all for a spin one day?!

    Tony Baxter, of course. My second choice from that list would be Steve Martin.

    Sweeny Todd was extremely dramatic and thought provoking. Angela Lansbury further demonstrated the depth and versatility of her theatrical/cinematic abilities. Julie, Dick and Angela are entertainment industry giants, and each have shown to have wonderful personalities off screen. One could not go wrong buddying up for a day at Disneyland resort with any one of the three....or all of them together.

    Wowsers! You are highly fortunate, Sailerm, to have lved the dream of spending significant time with Kurt, Dick and Steve! I've often wondered why I haven't seen Dean Jones in any productions since his last Love Bug. I have adored him since I was a kid. Apparently, he got part of his start working at Knott's Berry Farm.

    That's why I listed each of these timeless celebrities. They wouuld each be a steady on blast to experience the park with! But, Steve in particular would provide a wild, crazy
    and out-of-control good time!

    I'd love to tap into her wealth of knowledge about Walt. and the movie industry. Just maybe....if you and I ask sweetly....Julie might join us for some complimentary cakes and tea, and perchance even give us each one of those cute little singing, dancing cartoon penguin critters from the Mary Poppins movie.

    And it is beyond awesome that he continues to do so. Haven't xperienced the Little Mermaid ride yet. But when I do, it will be twice the fun because Tony's signature is written all over it. :thumbup:

    I ment celebrities that are currently living. His daughter Diane is the closest of kin to the founder. The honorable fact that you chose Walt stands as a testament to his contnuing positive influence in America, and the whole world over.
