Oscar Martinez, longest-tenured cast member at Disneyland Resort celebrates 60th service anniversary. Originally, Oscar worked in Fantasyland quick-service locations, and over the years, trained many new cast members, including grill cooks from Tokyo Disneyland. The last 50 years he worked at the café on Main Street, U.S.A.
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.
