    Sad Disney Legend and Imagineer, Harriet Burns, has passed away

    We are sad to announce that Harriet Burns, legendary Imagineer, has passed away.



    Harriet was the first woman hired in a creative role by Disney Imagineering. She was famous for working on attractions and prototypes for the 1964 Worlds Fair as well as many attractions at Disneyland, including the Haunted Mansion, Enchanted Tiki Room, and Sleeping Beauty Castle.

    We point you to Disney's Legends site for more details on Harriet Burns, master Imagineer and Disney Legend: LINK

    Rest in peace, you will be lovingly remembered.

    Wow... may she rest in peace.

    It seems so odd because just last month she was so spot on and talking and sweet at Ollie's Train Depot dedication.

    She shall be missed. Thank you for the information.

    Re: Disney Legend and Imagineer, Harriet Burns, has passed away

    It is sad she's gone. I'm glad to have had a chance to listen to her
    on a couple of panels at different events. She talked about some of the
    challenges in working and building the audio animatronic animals in Pirates.
    I saw her a couple of times with Blaine Gibson and Alice Davis. They certainly
    were great friends. As many others have said, she was a classy lady, and
    she will be missed!

    Wow - thatís very upsetting. I was just watching an interview with her on DVD last night.

    She was so talented and will be greatly missed.

    I heard she was just a super nice lady besides being so talented. We will greatly miss her presence at the reunions.

    Hopefully she is in a better place designing another park along with the other imagineers who have gone before her
