Disney Legend and Former Imagineer Wing Chao Appears In “The Mandalorian”

While this week’s episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+ revealed some major information (which we won’t spoil), it also had a cameo from Disney Legend and former Imagineer Wing T. Chao.

Wing T. Chao appears alongside Rosario Dawson in “The Mandalorian.”

Chao appeared as Governor Wing, whose village had been overtaken by the evil Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth. As Governor Wing, Chao helped the Mandalorian save his people and win back his town.

Chao worked as an Imagineer for over 37 years, from 1972 to 2009. He worked on all four Disney Cruise Line ships, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Tokyo Disneyland. He was named a Disney Legend at last year’s D23 Expo.

Wing T. Chao is not the first Disney Legend to appear in The Mandalorian. Ming-Na Wen appeared in an episode last year soon after being named a Disney Legend. The show is chock full of character and performer cameos, particularly this season. Who has been your favorite? Let us know in the comments.

All I can say is,”Wow!”. When I followed the link for Wing Chao’s name, I was absolutely blown awayby his achievements!! Not only is he a legendary former Imagineer, he is what I would call a Master-Class legendary former Imagineer!!! Granted, I was nowhere near his caliber when I was employed by Walt Disney World, but it sure sparked my pride to have been a Cast Member with Disney – to even have been deemed good enough to work with the Company is astonishing enough!
As for my favorite cameo character…hmmmm- no beating around a bush – I’ve likedthem ALL!
