Dear Mr. Drozdowski:
Thank you for your interest in the Orlando International Airport.
No questions are weird!! The Aviation Authority contracted with Mr. Jack Wagner (internationally renown to be the official "voice of Disney") to provide the greetings aboard our people-mover systems. We chose Mr. Wagner because of his reputation in being a voice of hospitality and friendliness. The recordings for the original side of the airport (gates 1-59) were done prior to opening the new terminal in 1981. The expansion greetings (gates 60-99) were recorded in 1988. We can not provide you a direct copy of these tapes.
Unfortunately, Mr. Wagner passed on in 1994, but I believe his son has taken up in his father's work. You may try to contact him at the last telephone number I have on record, which is (number removed).
In my own personal web surfing I have found similar recordings by Mr. Wagner at a "Sounds of Disneyland" site, but I can not recall the direct URL address for that particular site. A search engine with an appropriate query should be able to lead you there. I found his monorail, train and other announcements from the California park at the site.

UPDATE: Keith Drozdowski 17 AUG 98
The voice on the monorails (with the exception of the PLEASE STAND CLEAR OF THE DOORS, which is still Jack) is another gentleman, but to my knowledge Kevin never did the spiels. Kevin is from my home town and I've talked to him several times. Jack Wagner unfortunately died several years ago.
