timobrien2.jpg TonyBaxterBook.jpg

Tony Baxter joined Walt Disney Imagineering when he was 22 years old and is among the first of a second generation of Disney creatives who fashioned the magic found today in Disney parks worldwide. He would stay with the company for nearly fifty year and today serves as a mentor and consultant to the new, younger generation of Imagineers. .

Tony is credited for helping create such Disney attraction icons as Star Tours, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and the Indiana Jones Adventure. He has been lauded for his creative leadership at Disneyland Paris Resort, is a Disney Legend and has a personalized window on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, considered by many to be one of the highest honors a Disney employee can achieve.

From ice cream scooper in 1965 to Senior Vice President of Creative Development in 2013, this is his story.

Tim O'Brien
Author, Photo-Journalist

For nearly four decades, Tim O'Brien has worked in the communications side of the entertainment industry chronicling in print and capturing on film the latest and greatest that theme parks, amusement parks and attractions, circuses, carnivals and sideshows have to offer. He has a strong interest and proven commitment to preserving the legends, legacy and the history of the industry.

An industry specialist and award winning photojournalist, Tim has had more than 5,000 articles and more than 3,000 photos published. He has visited more than 500 amusement parks and attractions in 29 countries and has ridden nearly 600 different roller coasters. He has appeared in more than a dozen theme park documentaries on the Travel Channel, The Discovery Channel and National Public Television. Tim has written and published 17 books, all still available on Amazon.

For his contribution to the international amusement park industry, Tim was presented the Lifetime Service Award in 2001 by the International Assoc. of Amusement Parks & Attractions (IAAPA) and was the first journalist to be inducted into the IAAPA Hall of Fame in 2016, where he joins industry greats such as Walt Disney, Walter Knotts and PT Barnum.

A graduate of The Ohio State University with a master's degree in journalism/film production, Tim is an accomplished photographer and public speaker, having lectured extensively at industry seminars, schools, libraries, and various civic groups.

For 10 years, Tim served as the national corporate spokesperson for Ripley Entertainment Inc. and had the privilege of showing off the company's 90-plus attractions throughout the world, and in doing so has been widely published and quoted.

He was responsible for the promotion and public relations of Ripley Corporate as well as all Ripley brands and attractions worldwide and served as editor of the venerable Ripley's Believe It or Not! cartoon, established in 1918. He was producer and co-host of the Ripley Radio weekly broadcast creating more than 200 episodes over a five year period. Today he holds the emeritus title of "Ambassador of Odd" with Ripley's Believe It or Not!

Tim provided most of the talent booking for the various Believe It or Not! Odditoriums around the world, and the list of talented performers he brought to Ripley's front door includes the best in the industry - including wire walking Nik Wallenda, showman Todd Robbins, the green skinned Lizardman, and Dan Meyer, the world's foremost sword swallower.

Prior to his position with Ripley Entertainment, Tim served as senior editor of Amusement Business, the world's leading business trade magazine for the amusement park, fair, carnival, and circus industries. During his 18 years with the magazine, O'Brien traveled the world reporting the news and the history of the outdoor entertainment industry.

Tim currently serves on the National Advisory Council of the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport, Ct.; on the board of governors of the Applause Award which recognizes the world's top theme park; and is the former chairman of the Hall of Fame Committee of the International Assoc. of Amusement Parks & Attractions, of which he remains a member.

He is also a member of: the Outdoor Amusement Business Assoc.; the Showmen's League of America; the Amusement Park Historical Assoc.; the Circus Historical Society; the American Coaster Enthusiasts; and the Darkride and Funhouse Enthusiasts.

When not traveling, he lives in Nashville, Tenn. with his wife, Kathleen and their two cats, George Harrison and Petula Clark, and a happy family of fishes in the backyard Koi pond. When not writing, the Tennessee Master Gardener can usually be found in his backyard which has been named a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.

EMH Episode 59 - The Mouse Knows Best Podcast

March 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Episode 59 -  Host's Joe and Jenn discuss Disney Imaginering and Theme Parks with former Imaginer Brian Colins from www.wdwithme.com @wdwithme

Brian1.jpgBrian2.jpg

As a Disney Cast Member and Imagineer in the early 1990’s, Brian  helped create the magic for some of the most beloved attractions throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including show concepts for such attractions as The Great Movie Ride, the Jungle Cruise, and EPCOT’s World Showcase.

After leaving Disney, he continued to earn his stripes in a variety of creative positions within the ranks of corporate America.  A passionate educator, Brian has served on the faculty of several colleges and universities where he has developed and taught courses on entrepreneurship, marketing, innovation, and even "Product Development for Theme Parks."  Through it all, he has always maintained a “dotted line” relationship with Disney and has continued to work for them in a variety of freelance and contractual projects over the years.

As the founder of WDWithMe, Brian comes full circle in his career and is now leveraging his background and experience as a former Imagineer to share his creativity, knowledge and insight with others.

Promoting innovation and creativity within the workplace have also been the marks of Brian’s career. With this in mind, Brian coaches professionals and entrepreneurs on how to “Think Like an Imagineer" through a unique series of professional development seminars, materials, and other affiliated experiences he has developed. (Please inquire about these unique on-site experiences for your team at Walt Disney World.) He is also available for presentations on cruise ships, seminars, conferences and other venues, as requested.

 wdwithme.png

His web site, WDWithMe.com, is fully integrated with social media including Twitter (@wdwithmebrian), Facebook (officialwdwithme), LinkedIn, Pinterest, and YouTube. He would welcome having you follow, like, or otherwise connect with him through any or all of these, and may also be contacted via email at: brian@wdwithme.com.

Episode 58 - The Mouse Knows Best Podcast

March 12, 2017
00:0000:00

Episode 58 -  We conclude our Disney Legends discussions with Roy E. Disney and The Shernan Brothers, this week we are joined by our guest's, the winners of our drawings for Sully's Book and Bob's DVD.  RJ Lucia Jr @BlackPearl454 and producer of the Dis-Explorers Podcast, and Justin Koehn @JustinKoehn with our cast Cody, Elizabeth, Jenn, Jared and Joe. 

 ROY_E_DISNEY.jpg    DisLegends.jpgShermans_Walt.png

 Roy E. Disney

Year Inducted: 2008

 

If the Walt Disney Studios were to have a real-life Jiminy Cricket, it would have to have been former vice chairman Roy Edward Disney, son of Roy O. Disney and nephew of Walt Disney. Besides being its conscience, Roy has also been called the “soul of the Company;” he often looked to its past to define its future.

Roy once said, “The thing that distinguishes us from everybody else, and always has and always will, is our past. The goal is to look over our shoulder and see Snow White and Pinocchio and Dumbo standing there, saying, ‘Be this good.’ We shouldn’t be intimidated by them; they’re an arrow pointing someplace.”

 

Richard Sherman

Year Inducted: 1990

 

Robert Sherman

Year Inducted: 1990

 

Generations of moviegoers and theme park guests have been introduced to the world of Disney through the songs of the Sherman brothers. Whether they know the names behind the songs or not, you’d be hard pressed to find a person alive who hasn’t at one time or another hummed one of the Shermans’ timeless tunes; even today, they remain the quintessential lyrical voice of Walt Disney.

Richard and Robert Sherman are probably best known for their work on Mary Poppins, for which they won two Oscars®: best score, and best song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee.” Another of their songs from the film, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” became a pop hit, entering the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1965. “Feed the Birds,” a lullaby, became one of Walt Disney’s all-time favorite songs.
