Making the Magic

We had so much fun talking to Josh in this week’s episode! Josh has such a passion for theme parks and their design which is evident in how he talks about them. He lays out some practical advice that may help anyone that has ever aspired to be called an “Imagineer”.

There was a lot of stuff  that we wanted to talk about Josh about that we didn’t get to so we’re hopeful that sometime in the future he’ll join us for another chat! One thing we certainly didn’t get a chance to touch on was his experience creating the Disney Kingdoms comics in collaboration with Marvel Comics. The series included:

  • Seekers of the Weird
  • Figment
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Figment 2
  • The Haunted Mansion
  • Enchanted Tiki Room

Each story is very well written and we wish the series continued (especially considering the way that the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad comic ended).
