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.

  1. Thank you guys! Fun, fun fun!

    Whispering Canyon is going to be more popular than ever after this.

  2. Always enjoy watchening, guys.

  3. I can’t find it at the moment (lots of references to it, but not the video itself), though I’m sure it must be out there somewhere, but there was something you misseninged in the Toy Story well, story. One of the things Pixar did to help get Tom Hanks on board with the project (in addition to the script) was to animate part of a scene from Turner and Hooch with Woody. It wasn’t a detailed scene, it was just Woody on a white background, but he was acting out the scene from T&H with Hanks’ voice. It was one of the tipping points to get things rolling in the right direction.

    I remember the lady from whispering canyon in the picture with you, she wasn’t our waitress, but she had the loudest voice. Two favorite bits were when there was the crash of a broken dish from the kitchen and she yells out “JOB OPENING!” and another was a different waitress, but someone at another table had asked for a small orange juice, so the glass they brought out for him was maybe 2-3″ tall and held a swallow of juice if that. “That’s what ya said ya wanted, ain’t it?”

    I enjoyed watchening this week, too!
