I did finally forward this link to Diana and she was thrilled with all the great comments from everyone! So thank you to all of the people who posted!

Didier Ghez, who runs disneybooks.blogspot.com and publishes books about Disney artists called “Walt’s People” will re-print this story in a future volume of the series and has posted a link to this story on his website (February 16, 2009 post).

As a fan of the Quiet Village podcast, I was thrilled when Mark (Digitiki) asked if I could arrange an interview between himself and Diana. We spent a nice afternoon chatting about her past experience working as the VIP Hostess at Disneyland’s Enchanted Tiki Room. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Check it out if you haven’t already:

Wow, what an awesome interview! I could have listened to her talk all day! Thanks guys for putting that together, that is truly a treasure! I've been telling quite a few people about how she posted on TC about her experience as Original Tiki Room host, and now we've got her voice and photos! You're awesome Dano and DigiTiki!!!

Since it recently was the 50th Anniversary of the Enchanted Tiki Room, I felt that this should be brought back to the surface, for those who did not get the chance to read it. It is an awesome story, and just wanted to see how Danno and Diana are doing? I hope all is well with them! Mahalos for the great read again, Danno!
