It’s easy to take movie scores for granted, yet they’re so important to a successful film. When the music clicks, everything feels right. This point especially applies to animated films, where songs combine with images to connect with our emotions. A perfect example is Disney’s Moana, which offers tunes that fit comfortably within the story.… Read more...

It is easy to look at Walt Disney Imagineering as a magical place where artists imagine new worlds. That’s part of the equation, but the reality is hardly that simple.

Despite being an avid theme park fan, I rarely visit the parks on my own. This is especially true of Six Flags St. Louis, my local amusement park. Situated just a half-hour drive away from my house, it provides a convenient way to experience a few thrills on a day trip.… Read more...

It’s a boom time for podcasting, which has evolved into big business. A BBC News article from July 22nd states that 11% of people in the UK listen to a podcast every week.

7/16/2018
More
An underreported theme park story is the activity happening at Universal Orlando. Limited excitement for the Fast & Furious: Supercharged attraction has pushed Universal to the background as Disney opens Toy Story Land. The attention on Disney’s new area makes sense; it’s their first significant expansion at Walt Disney World since Pandora.… Read more...

Creating a theme park attraction is an insanely complicated process, but it’s easy to think of them as magic. We’ve heard so much about the wonderful world of Disney Imagineering, but that is only part of the story. So many individuals beyond the Imagineers help to put together a new attraction.… Read more...

Many Walt Disney World fans look back fondly at the early days of the resort in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Many attractions from that era are long gone, yet we still think about them regularly.

5/8/2018

It fascinates me to hear stories about the construction of EPCOT Center, which was a mad dash nearly on par with the original Disneyland.

I spend a lot of time reading books about Walt Disney, the Disney theme parks, and the many stories and figures surrounding them.

So many books have been written about the Disney Company, particularly the heyday for Walt Disney in the ’50s and ’60s. It says a lot when you consider how many unknown stories remain from this time period.

It’s tricky to sum up a trip to Walt Disney World, even a fairly short one. So much happens during each day that it’s nearly overwhelming to put it all together. This isn’t a bad thing, however. During our four-night stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge over MLK weekend, I barely thought about work, politics, or anything else from everyday life.… Read more...
