Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia


Thanks always to my cohosts (Heidi, Mike, and Jodi) for a great trivia host!

Walt Disney Imagineers and Disney Legends are usually known for doing multiple things - you'll read about one Imagineer who had his or her hand in too many projects to actually list.  In working on an upcoming post, I decided to tell you about one.

Did you know:
Disney Legend Bob Gurr joined WED after a long time interest in cars and mechanics.  He designed the look of the vehicles for the Matterhorn, the monorail, the People Mover, autopia vehicles and so much more.  He also coined the term "Doom Buggy" for the Haunted Mansion!

Talk about a laundry list!

  3. I would love for my kids to be Imagineers - maybe he’ll design an update for Test Track!

    I love how Disney displays loyalty within the Disney family. They stuck with one guy before trying to search out someone new. I have heard that from cast members too!
