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.

    Yay! Another great show! Thanks George & Jeff! :)

    I can’t believe you’d never heard about the Monorail Bar. It was gone before my time, too – but by then they had the Neon Cactus and a few other watering holes available in close Monorail proximity at the hotel.

    Not to mention most all the restaurants and the Monorail Cafe’.

    Hint: Get or make foam windscreens before recording outside again… Oh, and closed-back supra-aural headphones to monitor as you go, or at least check the setup – you would have known something was wrong.

    Been there, Done that. Oh, anyone got a Mini-Disc Deck with Digital outputs? Mine died.

      This is what happens when you’re used to WDW your entire life…you have to learn about the Disneyland stuff directly from the source! ;)

      Thanks for the tip! The issue was it was a total last minute thought to do something, haha. We were just spending the day with him at Disneyland, and decided randomly to record a bit. But now I know better for next time! :)

    Your interview with Bob Gurr: This is something the Walt Disney Company should have done years ago. Shame on them, and kudos to you Jeff for saving Mr. Gurr’s comments for future Disney fans.
