In this episode we take a tour of Disneyland as it it were the year 1966 with former night Custodial Cast Member Rob Merritt. Rob worked there in the summer of 1966 and has some great stories to tell as we talk about what Disneyland was like in 1966. It was a transitional year of changes, and an unfortunate event as well.
