    That's sad. I had the pleasure of meeting him at one of the Ryman Foundation events years ago.

            From the L.A. Times story on Marty's passing:

            Sklar is known for having distilled Walt’s wisdom into a creed known as “Mickey’s Ten Commandments,” a widely circulated list in the theme park business that includes sayings such as “know your audience” and “wear your guests' shoes.”

            "He understands the Disney way because he learned it at Walt's knee," Jim Cora, a former chairman of Disneyland International, told The Times in 2006. "He is the keeper of the keys, the conscience, the Jiminy Cricket for the organization."

            Sklar would eventually become the creative leader of Imagineering, the storied theme park design and development arm.

            After a half-century with the company, Sklar retired as principal creative executive at Walt Disney Imagineering in 2006 but remained an “ambassador” for the group for three more years.

            "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
            Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
            imagination or art. All you need is a brand."

            - Neil Gabler

            "I didn't know the story of baby Jesus could be any better,
            until Thor told it to me."

              It's always depressing when you realize any of Disney's original crew have reached that age now But he did live a long, happy, and clearly successful life. Thank you for everything Marty!! R.I.P.

                  A peaceful journey to you, Mr Sklar, and say 'hi' to Walt for us all, will you?

                    Does anyone know if the parks are doing anything to honor him today or over the weekend?
