Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia

Did you know:
Disney Imagineers love to place their name, and names of those that came before them when building attractions.  One common example are the Haunted Mansion Tombstones (Many examples listed here).

One of my newest favorite examples:


Speak with the Nearly Departed
Patented R.H. Goff

Disney Legend Ralph Harper Goff, more commonly known only as Harper Goff, started his movie career as a set designer for Warner Brothers.  He met Walt Disney while both trying to buy a model train in 1951 and started working for him shortly after.  He continued working for the Disney Co. until his death in 1993.  

I found this great article the D23 website all about him with pictures and an old interview!
