  • [Question] Do you have a favorite cast member?

    Hi folks!

    This will probably pertain to the APers and frequent visitors.

    Is there a cast member at the DLR park that you consider your favorite?

    Basically, someone you see many times in your visits and say "hey there's <name> over there. they do a good job".

    Even better if you've made friends with them, so whenever you visit you try to say hi.

    This can be anyone, from a waiter at a restaurant, attraction worker, performer, a janitor, even a security guard.

    Here's the kicker. It's gotta be someone you've met because they worked in the park. It can't be a family/friend of yours.

    So far my favorite cast member is a lady named ******. She works in the Baby Care Center. Whenever I'm bringing in my son in for a pit stop, I take some time to talk to her and say hi.

    Honorable mention for me goes to ***** in security.

          YES YES YES to Maynard! An incredible cast member who makes us have a touch more fun every time we hear him. We caught him this last Saturday at the Tiki Room.

            Does my brother and his gf count since they work there? Thanks to them I have an awesome nephew and niece.
            I actually heard this said by a CM over the loud speakers at Big Thunder in 1995, "Please do not sit on the rocks. You will fall...and you will die."

              There was a CM (I think his name was **** but I'm not sure) that my friend and I noticed during Fantasmic! He was one of the flashlight wavy guys that keeps crowds going the right direction. Anyway during the performance he was so much fun to watch because as he was directing he was getting so into the show himself. Along our trip we had a tiny stuffed animal of Mickey Mouse that we were putting into all our photos. So we decided that we wanted a picture of this awesome guy and ran up to him and asked him to hold our small mickey and if we could take a picture of them. He seemed so excited that we had asked him to do that it was adorable! If the photos I've looked at are right I'm pretty sure he's the blonde Bert now that people love! When I saw him again (or at least saw blonde bert and thought it was him) I was so excited because I think he deserves to be a face character so much!

                I believe it is against the board rules to mention any CMs by names, to protect their privacy Except for of course, Maynard!!

                  Coke Corner ragtime piano-player, Rod, was a real delight. He's been retired for a few years, but I have great memories of him. Such a terrific personality (and talent!) that really added to the Disneyland experience.

                      No, I don't think any cast member should go out of their way to outshine the show. I've been to DL a couple hundred times and quite honestly, I don't pay enough attention to notice singular cast members on a regular basis. Performing cast members are a different thing. The cast of Billy Hill, Rod Miller (miss him)...those are people that I remember because they are part of the attraction/show.

                          Speaking of Rod Miller, does anyone know how he's doing these days? I assume he's still in the area? I wonder if he ever makes an appearance at any piano benches any more?

                                How about Oscar at Carnation Cafe, we can mention his name, can't we....? He's famous!

                                He's also so happy, so jovial, he always would come to my table and ask how we were, how we liked the food, how we were enjoying our day...... he's just such a happy person, I love it when he greets me....

                                    Yes, Oscar is wonderful! A few years ago, I had breakfast at Carnation and got to meet him. Isn't he the longest-tenured cast member?

                                      Although he's not a cast member per say, he always has his awesome red cast member name tag. If you waited in the park to be the last to leave, then I'm sure you know ****!
