From Disneyland's Tom Sawyer to Disney Legend: The Adventures of Tom Nabbe by [Nabbe, Tom]

Featuring Guest Speaker – Tom Nabbe

He only bought a ticket to enter a Disney park once in his life.  It was July 18, 1955 at the age of 12.  The next day he landed a job hawking “The Disneyland News”.

In 1956, Walt Disney hired him to be the first “Tom Sawyer” for Tom Sawyer’s Island at Disneyland, but only as long as he kept a “C” average in school and reported to Mr. Disney with his grade card.  He worked at the park throughout his childhood and eventually became a manager.

He transferred to Walt Disney World in 1971 as a manager of the monorails and later helped open Disneyland Paris.

He retired in June 2003 with 48 years of service and was inducted as a Disney Legend on September 20, 2005.

Tom’s book will be available for purchase with his signature for $20.
