A little while ago I published an update called the Definitive Article where I asked you to contribute your knowledge and experience to the community. To get the ball rolling I have today posted my memories from my time as Opening Crew of EuroDisney in the spring of 1992. as I say I am not a journalist or any real type of a writer so bear with me, and maybe leave a comment?
Dear all, I need your help! In fact I think the net in general might benefit from your expertise.
After the Mouse is getting better Google rankings every day, more search terms typed into Google are pointing back to our community site and the information from Cast Members is getting out there. BUT I want to do more, do better...
A while ago a floated an idea in the forums about building a Wiki (thing a Disney Cast Member Wikipedia) but I am beginning to think that's a little ambitious for the moment but I would love to publish your knowledge online.
Please accept my deepest apologies for any issues you may be having with the site at the moment. Our web hosing company and I are working hard to get to the root of our problem.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Update: 23 Jan. 2009::
My apologies for the further interuptions in the servise today.

As you know After the Mouse is associated with the good people over at Amazon.com. Well last night I got a mail from them and it had information I thought some of our College Program Cast Members could use.
Better news on the way for Disney Jobs? - At Glendale (Imagineering) at least.

I have never heard of a company to rival the Walt Disney Companies' position in urban mythology. Legends of cryogenics, phallic castles, Eisner's telephone number abound on the internet and in 'common knowledge'. In this article I'd like to look at a few of the more popular myths.
I am not enough of a historian nor Disney expert to give any categorical answer to any of these urban legends, and as such I cannot support, sustain, or give any credence to any of these ideas.
