Theme Park Thursdays: The Voice of DISNEYLAND

The voice of DISNEYLAND for many years was Jack Wagner. Mr. Wagner announced parade times, inclement weather and reminded guests riding the Matterhorn to "Remain Seated Please - Permanencer Sentados Por Favor." 

At his peak, Mr. Wagner could be heard at both DISNEYLAND and Walt Disney World. He setup a satellite studio in his house with a linkup to both parks. Hurricane warning in Florida? No problem! Mr. Wagner would make the announcement from California, via satellite. The guests in Florida were none the wiser.

Mr. Wagner can still be heard at DISNEYLAND's Matterhorn and announcing the start of the Main Street Electrical Parade at Florida's Magic Kingdom theme park. He passed away in 1995, but his memory (and voice) live on.
