Oscar Martinez, Longest-Tenured Cast Member at Disneyland Resort, Celebrates 60th Service Anniversary

Maybe you have been to Disneyland and had breakfast on Main Street U.S.A at the Carnation Café. If you ever wondered who was cooking those fabulous morning potatoes. It was probably Oscar Martinez.
One day we asked if we could meet him.
He was one of the nicest Cast members. He let us take a picture with him as he told us about all the menu items he has cooked over the past 50 years.
He even gave us his recipe for those potatoes.  Sorry mine still don't taste as awesome as Oscar's.
 

If you ever get the chance to talk to him , Do it.
Oscar celebrated 60 years this month . He is the longest Cast Member to still work for Disneyland.

I found this article written by Kevin Rafferty Jr. on the Disney Parks Blog.
I want to thank him for allowing me to share it with you.

The ice cream isn’t the only original at Carnation Café.
Oscar Martinez, the longest-tenured cast member at the Disneyland Resort, recently celebrated his 60th year working at the resort – the last 50 of them working at the café on Main Street, U.S.A. Originally, Oscar worked in Fantasyland quick-service locations, and over the years, trained many new cast members, including grill cooks from Tokyo Disneyland.
After years spent whipping up breakfasts and lunches for guests, Oscar now spends a lot of his time greeting guests at Carnation Café, where his breakfast potatoes are featured in a menu item named in his honor.
On Jan. 17, a couple of weeks after his Dec. 29 service anniversary, Oscar was presented with an award created just for him at Walt Disney Imagineering. The inspiration was “Cinderella,” a movie that has never been used to help design a service anniversary award.

This special Award statue was presented to Oscar by Kris Theiler Vice President, Disneyland Resort and Michael Colglazier President of the Disneyland Resort.

ETicketToTomorrowland would like to Congratulate Oscar Martinez.
