Finally a Window on Main Street for Buzz Price – Part 1
By Sam Gennawey
Two years ago, almost exactly, Sam Gennawey pulled out a megaphone right here on MiceChat and declared that Harrison “Buzz” Price should be awarded a window on Disneyland’s Main Street. Next week, in a private ceremony in the park, that wish will come true. While Buzz didn’t live long enough to see the window himself, it is no less a deserved tribute to a remarkable man. In honor of his window dedication, we are rerunning the two part article that Sam first posted in April of 2011. – Dusty
Excuse me for a moment. I am going to reach over here and grab a soapbox. There. Very good. Now I would like to stand on top of this box and bleed my heart out for a few minutes. Okay?
One of the great traditions at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom is to honor those who have made an impact on the Disney Company and its parks with a window on Main Street. Walt Disney himself started the idea. According to legendary Imagineer, Marty Sklar, the rules for achieving this honor are:
- Only on retirement
- Only the highest level of service/respect/achievement.
- Agreement between top individual park management and Walt Disney Imagineering, which creates the design and copy concepts.
So, can somebody please explain why Harrison “Buzz” Price does not have a window on Main Street in either Disneyland or Walt Disney World? Let me build a case for why he should.
