Beginning in 1952 as an inbetweener on Peter Pan for the Animation department of Walt Disney Studios. He would go on to work as an assistant animator on films such as Lady and the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty and 101 Dalmatians. Starting in 1959 he would become a vital piece of the WED Enterprises team, helping design such iconic attractions as It’s A Small World, The Haunted Mansion, The Enchanted Tiki Room, and the Tower of the Four Winds as it was featured in the 1964 New York World's Fair.  He would then spend 3 years as the Supervising Art Director of Disneyland, redesign Mr. Toad's Wild Ride for Walt Disney World, and create The Land AND Wonders of Life pavilions at Epcot. In 2004 he was named a Disney Legend as an Imagineer and in April of 2009 his name was dedicated to one of the windows on Main Street USA as the proprietor of Fargo’s Palm Parlor, Roland F Crump. You may know him better simply by the nickname that Walt Disney himself gave him, Rolly. Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce, Rolly Crump…

Disney Magic Hour Episode #120 - 2018 Disney Movie Preview

DMHEp120CoverArt.jpg

Following a year in which Disney brought in over 6 billion at the box office, what does 2018 have to offer?  Quite a bit it turns out including The Avengers, The Incredibles, A Wrinkle in Time, Wreck-It-Ralph 2 and the return of Mary Poppins.  Something of note, not a single film on the marquee this year is an original IP.  There are all sequels, franchise films and based upon previous works.  You can argue that Nutcracker and the Four Realms falls into "new" IP but that is a stretch.  Does that concern you?  Should it concern the studio?  If they make money does it matter?  Lots to discuss from small screen to big, lets go, it's showtime!

Last week me and Melyssa went on our first ever Disneyland in California.  We were joined by our friends Chaunine, Cheree, Chad, Jennie and Stan as we all visited where Walt walked.  It was a special trip and it left us with a ton to discuss from layout, attractions, food, flow of people and atmosphere.  That is what this week's episode is all about.  At the top of the show we address changed to Patreon and gear up for the upcoming release of THE LAST JEDI.  So much to do! Lets go! It's showtime!

Disney Magic Hour Episode #89 - Top 5 Walt Era Films

When we started the recording, it was a Top 3, by the end, it was a Top 3 AND a Top 5.  The first trio is our personal favorites that were produced under the eye and ear of Walt Disney himself.  We then agreed to agree upon what the BEST 5 films were while Walt was with us.  In that list we need to push nostalgia aside a bit and view the films as complete works and which tops the mountain.  As you can imagine, there is a lot to discuss so let's get to it.  It's showtime!
