Marilyn Tomlinson

Ever the adventurer, Marilyn truly relished every moment of life, from travel to foreign lands (Africa, Egypt, Israel, Trinidad, Peru/Amazon, and many more), to hanging out right here at home with her many friends, Disney co-workers, and family.

She was always ready for the next experience from various local festivals, attractions, Disney events (Mickey Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Night of Joy, Flower and Garden and Food and Wine Festivals, Tour de Turtles) to parades. She loved parades her whole life but her absolute favorites were the Electric Light Parade and the Villains Parade at Disney.

Working at Disney for 31 years and at Animal Kingdom since Opening Day, she was so very proud to be part of the Disney Conservation programs and made many, many friends while working there, both guests and coworkers. She truly loved her job educating guests about conservation and our eco-heroes and spending time with the goats and sheep (she was nicknamed the goat-whisperer) which was the highlight of her day. Marilyn passed away at home on March 11th 2024. Her positive light and love will be deeply missed as she is off to the next adventure Until we meet again.
