Everybody’s got an opinion about everything and Disney is no exception. Sometimes, we all agree and the world is a happy place full of unicorns and rainbows. Other times, somebody comes along and throws a wrench into everything, making some outlandish claim that generally causes internet fury. Today, that person is me. I’ve got some pretty unpopular opinions that I stand behind wholeheartedly. Because I stand behind my arguments for these opinions, you might be left feeling a little #laywered (Marshall? How I Met Your Mother? Anybody?).
Richard Gerth, the beloved cast member who worked at the Grand Floridian Resort as a greeter, has sadly passed away at the age of 92. He passed this morning, June 7, 2018. Mr. Gerth spread magic and memories for 27 years, starting his career in 1991. He also assisted brides at the resort on their wedding days. In 2013, Mr. Gerth earned the Walt Disney Legacy Award. Although I personally never met him, I know a lot of people who have and can say that he was a wonderful man. Mr. Richard Gerth will surely be missed.
