Over the course of the last 2 years we’ve challenged ourselves to reimagining sections of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. In this episode, we take on our biggest challenge by designing our own theme parks! Plus we have an announcement regarding the future of the podcast.
This week we’re excited to welcome Josh Shipley to the show! Josh worked at Walt Disney Imagineering for 21 years before taking on the challenge of helping develop and run Evermore Park for a couple of years as their Chief Creative Officer. Josh shares stories about his path to becoming an Imagineer and why everyone’s path is different. We also discuss his personal thoughts about attraction design and where attractions might be headed in the future. It was a super fun talk that we hope you enjoy!
In the final episode of 2019 (and the decade) we recap all of our Armchair Imagineering episodes from the past year!
This week Gavin talks about the shows he checked out at Gallery Nucleus, we talk about Walt and Lillian’s 30th anniversary and the petrified tree in Frontierland, more shows are going away at Disneyland and DCA, plus we finalize our talks about New Orleans Square with some armchair Imagineering!
We had the pleasure of sitting down to chat with Brian Crosby who is the Creative Director for Themed Entertainment at Marvel! Brian talks about growing up as an artist, interning at WDI (Walt Disney Imagineering) and how he set himself apart in order to try to get a job and eventually working at Marvel.
