Oscar Martinez, the longest tenured cast member at the Disneyland Resort, has announced that he will be retiring today after 60 and a half years! He has become a Disneyland institution bringing smiles to guests throughout the years since 1956.
Oscar began his Disney career in the Fantasyland quick-service locations and eventually made his way up to the Carnation Cafe on Main Street, USA where he has spent the last 50 years. He has been greeting guests coming into the Cafe and posing for photos for all who want to meet him. Oscar even has his famous breakfast potatoes named after him on the menu.
Just after his 60th anniversary, Oscar was presented with an award created just for him at Walt Disney Imagineering. Learn more about Oscar and his award in this video!
