Random SATURDAY DISNEY Video Madness!

In this episode of D23 Presents Armchair Archivist, you'll hear firsthand from the voices behind some of Disney's most beloved characters and attractions. Join guest host, Bill Rogers (voice of Disneyland), Bill Farmer (voice of Goofy and Pluto), Bret Iwan (voice of Mickey Mouse), and Pete Renoudet (voice of Henry the Bear and other theme park attraction characters) as they share stories about being a part of the Disney family.

In 1987, Disney launched the entertainment retail model, by opening the first Disney Store in Glendale, California. Today there are more than 350 Disney Store locations worldwide, and more than 200 million people visit Disney Store every year.

Join Goofy and experience all the Disneyland Resort has to offer in the all-new short, "The Art of Vacationing."

"Packages" like these were shown in between the main programming on the classic Disney Channel back in the 1980's and early 90's. 
Eric Boardman would take viewers on educational tours of Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and other aspects related to the Walt Disney Company and interview those who were "in the know" within the organization.
Back in the channel's better days, instead of commercials for shows you've seen a thousand times, they showed these types of packages. They were meant to educate, entertain, and inspire kids (like myself!) to be creative and perhaps even to work for The Mouse one day. 
This was recorded on July 17, 1990 as part of the programming celebrating Disneyland's 35th anniversary!
