Welcome to Episode 42 of Stories of the Magic! I’m Randy, your host. Thank you for joining me!
(I’ve been looking forward to this episode number because it’s my favorite number! Fellow Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fans will understand why.)
In this episode, we pick up with part 2 of a 3-part interview with Brian Levine. In case you missed or don’t remember the previous episode, here’s a quick refresher. If you’ve been to Disneyland…well, ever, you’ve seen, and probably ridden, at least one of the attractions he worked: The Disneyland Railroad and the Main Street Vehicles. These have always fascinated me, so I was very excited to talk to Brian! I hope you enjoyed part 1—and I’m sure you did—so I know you’ll feel the same about part 2!
In this episode Brian talks about…
- His part in a special retirement gift for a fellow Main Street Cast Member;
- A fellow Cast Member’s memories of Walt Disney;
- Driving former Walt Disney Company president Frank Wells on the Omnibus;
- The involvement of the Main Street Vehicles with Club 33 parties;
- Being in the park at night after it closed;
- A great, sweet, and fun story from his time on the Omnibus—and well beyond;
- His involvement with the Disneyland Alumni Club and Disney Legend Van France;
- His dad’s involvement with Disney, Cal Arts, and Disneyland;
- The one fun thing that would happen at the parking lot toll booth;
- Some great memories of being a guest at Walt Disney World.
