My latest pieces on the D23 site…
First, rare photos from the set of the EPCOT Film, the now-famous production filmed during the last months of Walt’s life to pitch the concept of EPCOT to the Florida government and other industries.
If you worked at Walt Disney Productions in the 1980s, you could have auditioned to be Figment’s voice.
Here is the absolutely amazing, totally mindblowing piece of art that was the first conceptual sketch of the Florida Orange Bird.
And finally we have one of the absolute, tip-top favorite things I discovered while doing research for the Epcot 30th anniversary event last year. John Hench’s Captain Saltyhinder.
Also be sure to check out this fantastic story about the Tiki Room by Jim Fanning.
I know a lot of folks have had problems logging in to the new site, but hopefully those bugs are being worked on. If you ever want to catch up on all the stories I’ve written for D23 they can be found here.
