Davy...Davy Crockett!

My blog was featured in this weeks Geek-End Update over at Imaginerding!  What an Honor!

Alright, well this post is going to switch gears from our most recent adventures though Marceline.  I'm going to discuss one of my other past times, writing letters to Disney Legends.

Back in 2003 I was a cast member at Walt Disney World as part of the WDW College Program.  I worked at The Missing Link Sausage Company on Pleasure Island (very glamorous).  The job wasn't that bad because my hours were from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. which meant I could wake up as late as I wanted and still go to the Magic Kingdom before work.  Most of the time that is....

One week I had to work The Festival of the Masters which meant my schedule was now 7 a.m. to 7p.m.  This wouldn't have been bad at all if it wasn't for Fess Parker, Disney's Davy Crockett being at Epcot at the same time.  Fess owns a winery and was speaking at the Food and Wine Festival about his brand.  The closest I was getting to Fess that day was selling his wine at a tent in Down Town Disney.



It was then that I decided I was going to contact Fess Parker by mail and hope that he would write me back.  I contacted some people though his wines website and they gave me an address where I could write to Fess.  A few weeks later guess what came for me in the mail......




How great is that!  What a swell guy!

Since then I have written many Disney Legends and most have been kind enough to write me back.  So every once in a while i'll share some of the letters they have been kind enough to send me.
