Meeting Maynard

We (my family and I) were visiting Disneyland in late June this year. We stumbled across Captain Maynard at the Astro orbiter. Our whelm was overed. Our ghast was flabbered we were bowled over in short gobsmacked (thats a little British saying gob=mouth smacked=couldn’t talk). He was great! He was fun to talk to and very entertaining, he certainly earned his weekly salary. Seriously he should be doing voiceover’s for Disney Movies. In our humble opinion he was very much a contender to Robin Williams. Anyhow we had a great time and made more memorable by the meeting of that nutter...

Meeting Maynard

I was planning a trip for Disneyland in January and was trying to find something to do that I haven’t done before and I found all the info on Maynard. I read all the little stories and saw the pictures and decided my goal was to find him. Well I was on my third day there and with no sight of him I gave up. A little disappointed I got in line for the jungle cruise. I was getting close to the front when I heard laughing right in front of me and a cast member squeezed right in front of me. Finally! It was Maynard with plastic bugs all over him. He had asked a lady to put her hand out and...

Meeting Maynard

Just a note about my first (and, unfortunately, only) encounter with Maynard. Two summers ago, me, my wife and my two kids, 6 and 3 at the time, hit Disneyland for 5 days. This gave us a chance to really explore and catch rides at different times, with different experiences (imagine NO line at Indiana Jones!). On our way out one night, we decided to stop off at the Jungle Cruise just to see it at night. And there was Maynard, signing and joking and having a great time. So we got on. I’m usually a good audience for Jungle Cruise skippers anyway, because I laugh heartily at nearly...

Meeting Maynard

Just got back from D-Land and only because my journey was completed about 6:15 this evening… I found Maynard but not at any of the stated places on the MAynard website but rather working the control booth at the Astral Orbitor. His spiel while the ride was going was hilarious and as I was walking to an area that I could possibly get a good angle for a picture I did not even have to look to see if it was him, all I had to do was listen to the voice of the PA system. Got the angle for a picture, waited and got the picture in the pose I seem to have seen Maynard in quite a few pictures for...

Meeting Maynard

Hello, You can add me and my wife, Kitty Baran, to the list of people that would like to join a Maynard Fan Club ASAP. We now live in Carson City, NV but we used to live in So. Cal. At that time, I worked for Buena Vista Home Video the Disney Video arm in Burbank. One of the perks was a Silver Passport to the park. We first bumped into the Evil Twin when a friend of ours was visiting from Australia and he made her visit to the Mansion very memorable. We noticed that he was very visible on the morning news on KTLA during the Halloween day festivities, and we generally kept an eye out for...

Meeting Maynard

My sister and I were intent on finding the “Hidden Mickey” in the Haunted Mansion. On our first visit to the Mansion, we questioned the cast member letting people into the foyer. We had no idea at that time who Maynard even was! He gave us a cryptic response and we vowed we’d find it on the next go-round. On our next turn in the Mansion we found another cast member who told us where to look. Upon entering our Doom Buggy we saw the first cast member (Maynard) and told him we knew where to look now. He said “Your secret is safe with me” (?) and went to help others...

Meeting Maynard

After our first encounter with “Evil Maynard” last year then reading about him on the internet, we were most anxious to find him this year. Hoping for a visit with one of his twins, imagine our delight at being entertained by “Professor Maynard”, “Jungle Maynard” AND “Space Maynard” over a week-long foray into Disneyland!!! On our very first day in the park we went to the “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience” attraction and there at the podium welcoming guests to sit in the “cushy, squishy chairs” was Maynard!!! We waved from...

Meeting Maynard

I first came upon Maynard (or was it his evil twin?) at the Haunted Mansion. It was such a delight to see someone who was truly into his part. Having spent over 25 years working with all sorts of actors in the film/TV industry, I tend to get bored with most performers. But not Maynard! You can truly tell he loves what he does. That is a sign of an artist. Keep up the good work! Michael F. Blake

Meeting Maynard

I went to Disneyland on a Teusday in the middle of June. We were tired from walking around all day and decided to relax by going to the “Hunny, I shrunk the audience” show. We were in line to get our goggles and go wait in the waiting area when he stopped us, we would be the first few people in the next group. We were just standing there when he started acting really wierd (he was normal to the people in front of us, but when we got there it was like another personality). We were just like “ok….” at first, but then he started acting just like one of our friends...
