    Marty Sklar's New Window on Main St.

    Just a few photos of Marty Sklar's (former head of Imagineering) new window on CITY HALL!

    The new window:

    Awesome pics!

    Thanks for sharing.
    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    What a nice retirement gift. Today is Marty's last day with the company after having been with Disney through the opening of ALL of its parks.

    For those wondering, the Latin inscription at the top of his window reads:
    Id somniate, id facite => Dream it, do it.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    How appropriate -- thanks for the translation! I think it's a wonderful tribute to Marty. What a legend!

    Well, there are actually quite a few reasons that some might want to do that, but now is not the time or place to discuss those reasons. Do a search for "Marty Sklar" at the top of the page and you'll find out more than you ever wanted to know about Marty.

    Certainly he deserves a window, but I just wish it hadn't been put on one of Main Street's "civic" buildings; this type of window advertising would only have be found on a commercial building.

    To paraphrase, "Disney is in the details..."

    Congratulations, Marty - no matter what anyone says about your certain *ahem* accomplishments, you deserve that window.

    According to the dedication ceremony this morning, that window used to look into his office. Not sure if you knew that or not, but there it is.

    Re: Marty Sklar's New Window on Main St.

    Great job, Jeff! It was very nice to see Marty Sklar, one of the guys that helped evolve EPCOT. I remember an interview from a Travel Channel special about Disney World that Marty was with another imagineer with a model and he had a model and they pushed them together and they created EPCOT.

    Anyway, may he have a great retirement and good health to him!
