The Mouse Knows Books Club - Chapter 1

August 25, 2018
00:0000:00

And so it begins... Chapter 1 -  Whenever the creative minds in the Walt Disney Company embark on a challenging new project, they are faced with a rather daunting task: how does Disney outdo…Disney?   Join Justin, Jenn and Joe as we talk with the Chuck Schmidt the author of  Disney's Animal Kingdom An Unofficial History.  Too address that question and many many more.  Check it out.  

In February of 1990, a small group of Imagineers sat in the smallest conference room in the smallest trailer on the Walt Disney Imagineering lot. I was among those few people leading development of a new concept for a park in Florida. It had to be something completely different from any animal park in the world—different from any theme park we or anyone else had ever created.
The very first meeting about the park was conducted in August of 1989. It lasted five minutes. According to Rohde:
Michael Eisner said, “People like animals. People like Disney. If Disney does something with animals, people will come.” I said, “OK, there’s the mission.”
At that point, however, the idea of Animal Kingdom was a “dark-horse kind of project.” Euro Disneyland was well underway, and Eisner’s highly touted Disney Decade, where the company would expand its footprint in the parks, resorts, animated films—even into the unchartered waters of operating its own cruise line—was in full swing as the 1990s unfolded.
Although Rohde was tasked with leading the Animal Kingdom project, it wasn’t as if there were a long line of Imagineers yearning to take up the challenge.

Chuck Schmidt was bitten by the Disney bug at an early age. He remembers watching The Mickey Mouse Club after school in the mid-1950s. During his 48-year career in the newspaper business, he channeled that love of Disney as the Sunday News and Travel editor for the Staten Island Advance, writing features and covering a variety of events involving the expansive world created by Walt Disney.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is his fourth book published by Theme Park Press. The others are On the Disney Beat, An American in Disneyland Paris, and Disney’s Dream Weavers. He also collaborated with former Disney cast member Ted Kellogg on his book Passport to Pixie Dust.
Since 2009, Chuck has shared his passion for all things Disney in his Goofy About Disney blog on SILive.com. He also writes a blog for AllEars.net called Still Goofy About Disney.  Chuck resides in Beachwood, New Jersey, with his wife, Janet. They have three adult children and six grandchildren.

Just keep reading, just keep reading!

Episode 129 - A Master Class in Imagineering -When we think of Imagineering, we think of Disney theme parks. But Imagineering is a creative process that can be used for nearly any project, once you know how it works. Lou Prosperi distills years of research into a practical how-to guide for budding "Imagineers" everywhere.  So join Host Joe with Jenn, and our special guest Lou Prosperi, Author of The Imagineering Process book two in the Imagineering Toolbox series published by our friends over at ThemeParkPress.com.  As we discuss using the Disney theme park design process to bring your creative Ideas to life.  Grab a comfortable seat and join us.  Class is in session....

 

tmkbe129SM.jpg 

Lou Prosperi worked in the game industry for 10 years as a freelance game designer and writer, and product line developer at FASA Corporation, where he worked on the Earthdawn roleplaying game. After leaving FASA, Lou went to work as a technical writer and instructional designer and has been in that role for the last 20 years, providing user and technical documentation and training for enterprise software applications. He currently manages a small team of technical writers and curriculum developers for a small business unit of a large enterprise software company.

Lou has been interested (or obsessed depending on who you ask) in Disney parks since his first visit to Walt Disney World on his honeymoon in 1993. A self-described “student of Imagineering,” Lou has been collecting books about the Disney company, Disney parks, and Imagineering for the last 12+ years. He rarely passes up an opportunity to add new books to his Disney and Imagineering libraries, and is nearly always thinking about his next trip to Walt Disney World. Lou lives in Wakefield, Massachusetts, with his wife and children.
