The Eyes & Ears of Christmas

Eyes & Ears, Vol. 2, No. 51, pg. 2

This week I continue with the December 17, 1992 edition of Eyes & Ears, the Walt Disney World cast member newsletter.  (I am still coming off of my trip high from last week)  There are a few more Christmas nuggets and several debuts in this edition.  1992 saw the release of The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Ultimate Disney Trivia Book and a new parade at Disney-MGM Studios, 'Aladdin's Royal Caravan.'  The newsletter provided cast members with a few holiday gift suggestions, such as a new Aladdin lithograph or a left-over WDW '20th Anniversary' limited-edition lithograph.  
The newsletter gives us a small peak into the cast member culture in the early 90's with notes from the Christian Fellowship, Clogging and Karate clubs.  Each edition of Eyes & Ears also contained employee news and classifieds.  
Enjoy and have a Very Merry Christmas!
