We Started With Disney The Same Day Michael Eisner Became Disney’s CEO

jeff noel started the same time (late September 1984) as Michael Eisner, Disney’s new CEO. A week later, Michael Eisner gave a welcome speech to Walt Disney World cast members before the Magic Kingdom opened to Guests, describing his vision for Disney’s future. I took this photo. Left to right: Mickey Mouse, Michael, Jane Eisner, Luanne Wells, Frank Wells. This is one of the worst pics jeff noel has ever taken.

A few years into my Disney career, I dreamt of one day being Disney’s CEO. What a Goofy thought.

To this very day, I remain absolutely, positively Goofy about Cheryl (above).

What I have learned from life is that you couldn’t pay me enough money to be a Fortune 500 CEO. Life has a funny way of grounding our blind ambitions. Thank goodness, eh?

Disney Vacation

Working Vacation At Mid Life Celebration?
Working Vacation At Mid Life Celebration?

Today is the first day of summer vacation.

What am I going to do to kick it off?

“I’m going to Disney World”.

Sitting here writing from the breezeway in Cinderella Castle.

No seriously. I’m on vacation. Sitting here in the breezeway. Yes, Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

The sun is not up yet.

I sure hope this isn’t some twisted fairy tale.
