Working Disneyland Lost & Found

  • by

The Orange County Register checks in with one of its periodic profiles of Disneyland Cast Members who live locally, this time Fullerton’s Betsy Chan of Guest Relations is interviewed by Barbara Giasone about her work at the Disneyland Resort Lost & Found.

Question: What are among the most unusual items turned in to the department?

Answer:There have been dentures, a glass eyeball, wigs, oxygen tanks and diabetes kits. I personally logged in a toilet seat and a leg cast. Last year, there were 40,000 hats and 20,000 glasses.

Personally, I found it more convenient for both guests and Cast Members when there was a Lost & Found halfway down Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, but I can understand the reasons for having a unified facility near the entrance to California Adventure.  I turned in some interesting items during my time.  You’d be surprised.  You’d also be surprised at the amount of cash that can be found with nothing to identify the owner – no wallet, not even a red rubber band.
