Dr. Lee Returning Home To Dine At Club 33

After working 28 years at Club 33, it was so wonderful to return, but this time I was the guest!
Mickey and Pluto seemed happy to see me and I was sure happy to see them. Honestly, I miss Club 33, being there felt like home.

Costume couture with the environment in mind:

The Entertainment Costuming team recently demonstrated their environmental efforts by making some of their costumes that had reached the "end of life" available for cast members to purchase. These costumes were perfectly wearable- they were either outdated styles no longer used at the resort or costumes that no longer met Show quality standards due to fading, small imperfections, etc.
It was a win-win situation for all: the Entertainment Costuming team streamlined their inventory: cast members benefited from purchasing great wardrobe pieces to assemble Halloween costumes: 25 racks of clothing were repurposed or recycled instead of being sent to the landfill.
Costume pieces included pirate items,medieval/Renaissance items, "surf and turf" animal-inspired items, stilt walker costumes, shoes and accessories. Costume pieces that were offered were all non Disney-branded items (meaning that if taken out of context, people would not necessarily know they came from the resort). Atmosphere and face character costumes were not included. The sale at Company D started Sept. 15 and cast member response was positive as costume pieces flew off the racks.
The effort demonstrated a great collaboration between Entertainment Costuming, Property Control, and Company D, and a conscious effort to "make a differance" for both cast and the environment.

"Let the Memories Begin":

Remember driving into Disneyland parking lot for the first time and getting goose bumps up and down your arms? Or what about the time you first witnessed the majestic sight of Sleeping Beatuy Castle?
We all remember our first time at a Disney park. Certain memories are important to each and every one of us, and this year at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, we're really going to treasure them.
On Sept.23, Tom Staggs,chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts,announced Let the Memories Begin, a new campaign being celebrated at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.
"For the first time ever, we are asking our guests to send us their most precious family memories, their photos and, most important of all, their home videos, "Tom said. "If the memory means something to our guests, then we want to share that memory with them...and everyone else."
At the heart of this campaign are guest stories they can share with us in brand-new ways. Television commercials, advertisements, broadcast specials and more will feature guest home-videos and personal photos. Even a new website has been created so they can upload their new memories for all to see at disneylandparks.com/memories.
The new campaign also will feature the website,disneyparks.com/Memories, where guests can get insider advice on how to really maximize their vacation.
Earlier this summer, we asked you to share your personal advice about Disney parks and resorts through an online guestionnaire held on The Hub. Thousands of cast members from both resorts answered a series of questions, and those responses helped provide content for hte website.
When the questionnaire ended, one thing was apparent- Disney memories aren't just for our guests, they're also for us.

DR LEE...I can remember when I was about 8 years old,"1960", our family went to Disneyland, some place in "Anahiem,were is that Dad" and my 2 brothers and I, we could not sleep the night before! Living in Lancaster, California, we had to get up like really early,say 4 a.m.,it's still dark out,were is my pillow! Arriving at Disneyland,I can remember walking up Main Street, U.S.A.,and seeing Mickey Mouse in person, instead of Television(Walt Disney's World of Color,remember Tinker Bell).
As I began my career at Disneyland, worked on the Jungle Cruise as the skipper,the Mark Twain and than on to the Club to become Dr Lee,Bartender. So many memories, guests,co-workers and family.
I would like to ask all who read this to leave a comment in the comment section about their memories of the Disneyland Resort................

Moonlit Madness 2010:

On the evening of Sept. 13, more than 1,400 cast members participated in the 2010 Minnie's Moonlite Madness at Disneyland Park. This year's theme was a mash-up of all holidays and was hosted by Mr. Holiday, who entered the Festival Arena Rip Taylor -style, tossing confetti on participants. Of course,detective Minnie Mouse made an appearance as did Disney Ambassador Danielle DuBois.
Together they presented a check for $5,500 to Larry Haynes and Allison Harvey, who represented Mercy House, this year's beneficiaries. The cast members were told that this check will help keep 5 families from being homeless.
The first part of the event consisted of a 50-question trivia game followed by two hours of clue-solving madness. Teams had their choice of easy or hard clues to solve, ranging from completing a wooden coffin puzzle at Haunted Mansion to learning a '50s-inspired dance to be performed for judges.

DR LEE.....Love these holidays at the Disneyland Resort!!

Walk in the Park:

Sometimes it takes large strides to make a difference in the community; and other times it takes only a few steps. On Sunday, Oct. 17, at 7a.m., you can make a difference by taking a few steps of your own(literally) at the 20th Anniversary CHOC Walk in the Park, taking place right here at the Disneyland Resort.
As you know so well, the annual CHOC Walk is a favorite of many cast members, their family and friends, who join thousnads of other walkers in this memorable and heartwarming event every year. The Disney VoluntEARS walk team always does a fantastic job of raising money for CHOC Walk to help ensure CHOC Childern's can continue providing the quality medical care that all childern deserve. Last year, the Disney VoluntEARS walk team raised more than $85,000,which helped the event bring in more than $1.6 million total.
This year, we are challenging the Disneyland Resort to take our fundraising efforts a couple of steps further. To honor the longstanding partnership that we've held with CHOC, dating back to Walt himself, and to commemorate the 20th anniversary of CHOC Walk, we are challenging all of you to help the Disneyland Resort raise $200,000- which is more than we've ever raised before.
Now, we're not asking you to do this all on your own. The Disneyland Resort is giving a $25 match donation for every walker who signs up on the Disney VoluntEARS walk team at chocwalk.org. If you're not able to join us at the Walk, you can register as a "Sleeping Bear" and your donations will still help us reach our goal. If you have some spare change, lookfor a Change for CHOC jar placed throughout the Resort. And in the coming weeks, there will be even more fun activities including a road show, opportunity drawings, silent and online auctions, and even karaoke.
As CHOC Childern's expands the services provided throughout the community, your support will help more childern-in addition to making sure that every child who is in need will receive care regardless of their family's ability to pay.

Let The Memories Begin:

What a journey we've been on over the years...

We celebrated a milestone with Happiest Celebration on Earth. We awarded 1 million dreams with Year of a Million Dreams. "What will you celebrate?" provided guests with amazing ways to mark their special milestone with pure Disney magic.

Starting Sept.23, Let the Memories Begin will allow guests and cast members to share those special experiences that can only happen throughout Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

Every parent knows the treasure memories can be. They're the only way to keep our childern forever young. And Disney memories? They're magical things filled with color, music and laughter.

But memories aren't just for our guests...

...the memories are also for us, our Cast Members.

At the heart of this campaign are guest stories, content they create and share. This "user-generated content" will be featured in TV spots, online and print ads, broadcast specials, promotions and a brand- new website.

During this year of new memories, look for those moments and memories that only Disney can make, not only for guests but also for you as a cast member.

Throughout the Let the Memories Begin campaign, we will keep you updated on news, updates and offerings.

Remember, no matter what roles we play,we also create magical memories for ourselves.(as bartender at club 33, I truly have "alot" of happy memories, from guests to fellow cast members.)
