This week, Team Mousetalgia discusses the recent news that Disneyland is cancelling its annual passholder program. In the wake of the park's unprecedented shutdown due to the global pandemic, APs are no more, and we discuss the emotional impact of the end of the program, and future possibilities for the park's superfans.

This week, Mousetalgia is celebrating a Disney Legend who left a remarkable legacy due to her work with Disneyland. Cicely Rigdon, who started her career at the park as a ticket taker in 1957, quickly had an impact on Disneyland even as she began working in a ticket booth, and soon found herself working for the Tour Guide Department, eventually becoming the supervisor of Guest Relations, and then developing and leading the Disneyland Ambassador Program. Today we speak with Barbara Brock, a former Disneyland Tour Guide who knew Cicely, and Cicely's daughters Penny and Pamela, who share special memories of their mom. We also speak with an array of people who knew and worked with Cicely, and welcome Kristen Carr back to the show to deliver the latest Disney news.
