For many of us, working at the Disneyland Resort is a family tradition. My parents, aunt and uncle worked at the Disneyland Resort. For the Gerlach family, working at the Disneyland Resort is a family tradition spanning four generations and 19 people, dating back to 1956!

Earlier this week, we invited the Gerlachs for a family reunion at the Disneyland Resort. Cast members Mikayla and Kaiden were joined by 10 of their family members, all former cast members, who enjoyed Pixar Fest and watched Mikayla perform in Pixar Play Parade.

Mikayla and Kaiden’s great-grandparents were the first generation of their family members to work at the Disneyland Resort, followed by Mikayla and Kaiden’s grandmother, mother and several other relatives. Watch this video for a glimpse of their family reunion!
