Yep. 100% Certified Disney Nerd over here, but you guys already knew that and love me anyway. SO. that being said let me share some cool stuff with you today. Everyone os gearing up for Tomorrowland coming out May 22 so while I was in San Francisco a few months ago we stopped by the Walt Disney Family Museum Again to see the inspiration behind Tomorrowland at the parks.
In 1953 Walt recruited Herb Ryman to create a special concept drawing of the proposed park and that’s how a small idea became reality.
It always amazes me to see how much Vision Walt Disney had. I mean the things he dreamt up were truly magical and lasting. He inspired generations upon generations and was always looking towards the future which is where Tomorrowland comes in.
Seeing things from a birds eye view through the model is exciting! Imagine what it felt like for Walt when his dreams were coming together. It makes me think. It inspires me and makes me feel like anything is possible.
