As unlikely as it may have seemed, initially, that any boy might make it through the ranks at Disneyland, then Orlando and Paris and back all the time rising higher in positions of responsibility and the esteem of his peers has to encourage others who may find themselves on a similar path of their own. It's a story of patience, hope, and reward.
I really liked From Disneyland’s Tom Sawyer to Disney Legend. I flew through the book as I found Nabbe’s recollections interesting and in an easy to read tone. I felt like I was listening to him tell stories about his time with Disney and even found his later accounts of warehouse work to be highly interesting. I am thrilled this Disney Legend’s thoughts are captured for fans like me to enjoy.
Sometimes I find Nabbe’s Disneyland hard to imagine. He goes into some depth on the fishing that occurred from the dock on Tom Sawyer Island. In today’s legal minded society what I read was honestly hard to comprehend, but it happened. I just cannot see any lawyer today allowing a company to let a teenage boy supervise adults and kids by himself on an attraction. And I cannot comprehend that any lawyer would sign off on untrained guests swinging a line with a hook near other guests within the park. And this does not even include the sanitation issues with fish in the Rivers of America dying due to the results of the catch and release program. Yes, this is a different time and park then I have ever known.
Tom Nabbe was a company man. He was hired by the man with his name on the door! His story filled with love and dedication to his job and family both entertains and inspires. Disneyland’s Tom Sawyer to Disney Legend is sure to delight those who wish to remember the early days of Disneyland or the creation of Walt Disney World as they lazily sit by the river with their line dangling in the water.
