Oscar Martinez celebrated his 55th anniversary with the Walt Disney Company on December 29. He started working at Disneyland in 1956 as a busboy at the age of 21. He climbed his way up the ladder overt he years to becoming a Chef and now is an official Ambassador for Carnation Cafe.
I was very, very fortunate to meet him during our one trip to Disneyland in 2010. I didn't even know who he was when I met him. He approached our table and started talking. After asking some questions, I realized he was important. I asked for a picture and autograph, then he went inside to bring me a pamphlet for Disney employees. It was after the trip when I learned just what an icon he is!
