Walt Disney Elementary in Marceline, MO

Below is a 1959 newspaper clipping of Walt Disney in front of a rendering of the Walt Disney Elementary School in his boyhood hometown of Marceline, Missouri, and below that is a photo I took of the still-operating school as it appears today.

Wally Boag (Tiki Room contributor)

For the 55th anniversary of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room today, I thought I’d post this photo of the first time I met Wally Boag. Besides starring in my favorite Disneyland show “The Golden Horseshoe Revue” for 27 years, Walt Disney had Wally write most of the Tiki Room show. He is still heard as the voice of the show’s emcee bird, Jose, in both Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

Here’s my obligatory Star Wars photo for May the 4th. I took this photo of Star Tours in 1992 for a project I was working on for Disney. This is the original Disneyland version of Star Tours with Captain Rex, rather than how it is today with C3PO at the helm.

I just posted my interview with Disney Legend Marc Davis. His work includes everything from designing characters such as Cruella De Ville and Tinker Bell to designing story and character concepts for such Disneyland attractions as it’s a small world, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion and Jungle Cruise, Marc was a major part of Walt Disney’s success.
