ORLANDO — George Kalogridis began as a busboy for a restaurant at Walt Disney World Park in Orlando in 1971 when it opened.

Now Kalogridis oversees 66,000 “cast members” as the new president of the massive park. Kalogridis has been with the Walt Disney company for more than 41 years, filling roles for the company in Orlando, Los Angeles and Paris.

According to Watermark Online, Kalogridis and his partner Andy Hardy — who also works for Disney — have been together for 12 years and plan to move into a home on the edge of the resort’s property that was developed by Disney.
