Cast Member Credits Disneyland With “Saving His Life”
Disneyland cast member, Mark Gautier, tells everyone who will listen that Disneyland saved his life. Mark lost 150 pounds just by enjoying the Disneyland parks as a guest. He tells his story in a feature on the Disney Aspire Program’s You Tube channel.
Mark was diagnosed with diabetes in 2013 and after a scary hospital stay from diabetic shock, he decided exercise was a necessity. He bought an annual pass and spent every free day walking the Disneyland parks. After spending all that time at Disneyland he not only lost 150 pounds, he regained his health and decided he had to work there.
Gautier’s biggest realization was after waking up from the coma he could no longer write or draw. After spending his life as an artist this was devastating. “Doctors told me that I needed to start walking again, so my wife and I got passes to Disneyland,” he shared. (ITM.net) He enrolled in the Disney Aspire program with a major in Graphic Design. Currently, he works at the Disneyland hotel while earning his degree.
Mark credits Disney with saving his life. He is happier, healthier, he feels like he has a purpose and a mission. All of these things he found at the Most Magical Place on Earth.
