  • Happy Birthday "The Voice of Disneyland"

    This date, October 17th, is the birthday of Jack Francis Wagner - born in 1925 - better known as, "The Voice of Disneyland". He could be heard through various announcements throughout the Park as well as the myriad safety spiels ("Remain seated please; permanecer sentados por favor.")

    From all my years of visiting the Park, it's amazing how much one voice can make a direct connection with past memories. Whenever I hear his voice, the myst of my memory clears and I have clear memories of Disneyland of my youth.

    Sadly, Jack passed away June 16, 1995, but his voice and memory will live forever.

    Happy Birthday Jack!

    Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends , is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives.

    Jack Wagner will forever be the ONLY voice of Disneyland. I met him once...actually by accident. Had no idea who it was, but the voice was very very very familiar. Thanks for posting the link to the video...most is from my time and I know so many faces in there...have to slow it down, maybe my face is in there too.
