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.

Disneyland hosts final Grad Nite party:

A five decade rite of passage for millions of high school seniors will come to an end early Saturday when Disneyland finishes hosting its final, private Grad Nite party.

 Starting next year, the overnight, private parties will move to Disney California Adventure for 2013 high school graduates.

 Seniors are able to visit both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park during regular park hours. But the most prominent part of the grad Nite experience -the late -night parties- will move across the esplanade.

Disneyland's last Grad Nite party is scheduled to start last Friday. Disney has hosted more than 5 million graduates from thousands of high schools,mostly in Southern California, since the tradition began in 1961. That year, Disneyland held grad Nite on just one night, but the event grew to about seven  or eight times a year. At first, seniors had to follow a strict dress code, including ties for boys. The after-hours parties, when the attractions are open, lasted until the sun came up. Some big-name bands of the eras have played at Grad Nite, including No Doubt, Berlin and Dazz Band.

 Under a new format this year, there were 20 Grad Nites for 1,100 schools. the private parties have been running from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. Seniors dress down, sometimes making their own T-shirts for the night.some Disney fans on Twitter and other outlets have said the event should stay at Disneyland because of the tradition. Others, however, said the revamped Disnet California Adventure Park is more suited for a party atmosphere.

In 1970, as a senior from Riverside Poly High, I still remember my Grad Nite Party...Dr Lee

Today is a milestone in my life?

 Today, June 20th is my 60th birthday and my 5th year of retirement from the Walt Disney Company.

Looking back, It is hard to believe that I am now 60 years old. Were has all the time gone?

 Let's see, high school from 1966 thru 1970, 18 years old. U.S.Army from 19 thru 21. College from 21 thru 26. Working at Lucky supermarkets from 21 thru 29. C.H.P. academy 29 to 30. Married from 30 to 54.  Disneyland from 29 to 55. Retirement from 55 to 60. There it is, my life up to this day. Wow.

OK now about my retirement. Today 5 years ago was my last day at Disneyland Club 33. Can remember when I started that first day. Mark Twain as an attraction host,then to the Shooting Gallery,Tree House and finally Jungle Cruise, all in the first year. (12-12-81 to 4-4-82). Then I was transferred to Club 33 as a busboy,lead, then bartender.(4-5-82 to 6-20-07). On my last day, most of the Cast Members of Club 33 and management gave me a going away party at Club 33. Was given a Club 33 plate signed by most of my fellow Cast Members,cake and ice cream and crystal Micky Mouse Ears. At exactly 5:33 p.m.  my then wonderful  girlfriend and I walked out of Club 33 holding hands.

Then on July 25th, 2007, I left Mr Stox (14 years as a night bartender) and moved to Pleasant Hill, California on August 1st, to be with my girlfriend and her two amazing kids. Sorry to report, by July of 2008, this was a done deal. I decided to stay in Pleasant Hill,Ca. and as of this writing,I am still here on my 60th birthday.

Life is what you make of it.....Dr Lee 60 and having fun(an single,nice)
