I’m a lucky guy. I have the amazing opportunity to talk to Disney Legend and retired Imagineer Bob Gurr pretty frequently. Bob is an original WED employee and an original Imagineer. Walt Disney personally hired Bob to design vehicles for Disneyland way back in 1954. I ask Bob questions, both from myself and from listeners to the show, and he answers. On this particular occasion, his answer was so great and contained so many things I’d never heard before, I made it into it’s own podcast episode. I hope you enjoy this week’s Word of the Week – Bob (And the Magic Skyway).
The Ford Magic Skyway was one of the four attractions built by Disney’s Imagineers for the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. I had never really heard many stories about it…until now! Listen as Bob Gurr takes over the Word of the Week with some amazing Magic Skyway stories!
