I have no opinion, because I've never seen him in person.

I still have yet to find him. I've never got a chance to see him.

We finally had a chance meeting at the Tiki Room. We chatted with him for a while and he sampled some of his voice characters for us. He is such an amazing guy to talk to. Then we got to hear him do his spiel inside the Tiki Room. He talks fast, but is hilarious!
On the other hand, I could also see where people could think he's a little over the top. It would get old after a while...but for folks who are new to the "Maynard experience", he just seems to add a little something special.
The Tiki Room is a perfect place for him because he doesn't take away from the show. I think he might be a little overkill on Jungle Cruise. (though I've never experienced it)
(if you look cloesly, there is actually a very small pic of Maynard at the HM in my avatar....I cannot take credit for the pic though. Thank you to someone who happened to have that picture posted as an image somewhere in the netmosphere... :D )
I didn't realize he worked at more than the Haunted Mansion ~ it would be fun to meet him since there is so much buzz about him :D

I don't think I ever saw him during any of my DLR trips - or, at least, I am not aware of it as I don't go to DLR to do Maynardspotting.

I met Maynard last week. He is a very talented CM. He took the time to tell me about Disney radio ads, and actually performed one for me, using many of his different voices and everything. Made my DL experience that much better!

Met him for the first time years ago during a Halloween trip - he was at the Haunted Mansion. I liked him :) he even autographed our sons book and posed for a picture.

To respond to Elizabethswann and Amy; when I met Maynard last week, he was assigned to the Lincoln attraction. And yrs, I did getmy picture taken with him. He was very accommodating. 

If I can ever find the mystical missing memory card that holds the balance of our July pictures, I will post one of Mr. Tiki god Maynard. He was a really great guy to talk to.
