Fans petition Disney to get a window on Main Street for Oscar Martinez

Oscar Martinez was a Cast Member at Disneyland for more than 60 years. Most of those years he was a chef at Carnation Cafe. He’s been retired for a few years now and guests have started a petition to get him a window on Main Street U.S.A.

Oscar began working at Disneyland in 1956 and retired in 2017. His warm personality and kindness has made him a favorite among guests. Oscar became an attraction himself for guests visiting the park. Now, those guests want him to have his own window on Main Street!

If you’ve ever looked up at the windows on Main Street U.S.A. you might’ve noticed the names on the windows. Those names belong to past Cast Members, Imagineers, or others who contributed to the park. There are three requirements to get your name on a window: 1) Be retired, 2) Reach the highest level of service/respect/achievement, and 3) Agreement between top individual park management and Walt Disney Imagineering, which creates the design and copy concepts.

The petition on Change.org reads:

“After over 60 years of service, Chef Oscar retired from the Disneyland Resort in 2017. If you’ve met him, you know that he is a prime example of a Disney Cast Member. With kindness and genuineness, he has made a big impact on Guests and Cast Members since he hired in on December 29, 1956, and is more than deserving of a Main Street window to show how much we appreciate him!

Have you ever looked up at the windows on Main Street? Or maybe you’ve seen them in Toontown? These business decals are awarded to individuals who have contributed in some way to the parks. To be deserving of a window, Marty Sklar has said, “”to add a name [on a window] today, there are three requirements: (1) Only on retirement. (2) Only the highest level of service/respect/achievement. (3) Agreement between top individual park management and Walt Disney Imagineering, which creates the design and copy concepts.”

The petition is hoping for 2,500 signatures and has reached 2,408 as of the publication of this article. If you’d like to sign, you can find the petition here.
