A brand new book from a Disney Legend, as told to MiceChat’s own Jeff Heimbuch!

The Imagineers, those men and women who helped Walt Disney bring his creations to life, have achieved legendary status among theme park enthusiasts. It’s Kind Of A Cute Story is the life story of one of the most beloved Imagineers, Rolly Crump. Covering his long and varied career, including designing some of Disney’s most famous attractions and working directly with Walt himself, Rolly’s stories weave into a lighthearted yet riveting narrative of his life and accomplishments. Packed with over 200 photos, many of which have never been seen before, It’s Kind Of A Cute Story is a tribute to the life and work of a true original.

Buy the paperback directly from Bamboo Forest Publishing!

Also available from all major booksellers, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and more.

Also available as a limited edition, signed hardcover from Bamboo Forest Publishing.

And save the date of February 2nd, 2013 to meet Rolly Crump for yourself and have him sign your copy of the book during the MiceAge 10th anniversary celebration (more information about this event available soon).

  1. Nice update. I guess Captain EO in 1986 is when the Disney Great Big Beautiful Tommorrow gave way to a Disney future filled with ugliness and misery, climaxing with Frankenweeinie (so far). I used to go to Tomorrowland and imagine how great the future was going to be. I guess the next version of the place will include a Soylent Green Ride.
