I will always be known by everyone who knows me as the Disney guy. Fuelled my love for coasters, for theming, & ultimately for tourism which is how I make my living.
Of course, I dream of a Tomorrowland that is no longer barren. Hopefully the return of the subs harkens that. Perhaps they will give the Astro Orbiter the height it once had, return the Peoplemover to moving something, & America Sings where we can learn folk music of America instead of bluetooth technology. (A guy can dream, thanks to Walt Disney). Don't get me wrong, I still love DL & still have much to experience there, no doubt, for the next 52 years or so.Someday I’ll dig up my eigth grade end of year project which was a collection of art projects I’d done on DL. Mostly just tracing, but quite the obsession.I even had a t-shirt made when I was a kid…with those velvet iron on letters. It said: Imagination is the only key to Disneyland.The guy at the t-shirt shop really got into it, & crafted an old fashioned key out of the characters 8 & F.That guy who made it remembered me years later, & we became friends. We even built a Haunted House in Monterey to benefit the boy scouts one year. Hows that for imagineering?Never been to WorldNever even been to DL for the holidays.Joaquin & I have vowed to go this year since he’s from L.A. & had never been during the holidays either.
