Who better to tell us stories about the earliest days of Disneyland than original Disneyland Imagineer, Bob Gurr? Bob Gurr was hired by Walt Disney himself in 1954 to work on the bodies of the Autopia cars for Walt's ambitious theme park, Disneyland. Little did Bob know that he was just beginning a long and storied career with the Disney Company, full of wonderful stories, incredible imaginations, and unrivaled creativity.
This week hosts Aljon Go (@aljongo) and Dave Bossert (@dave_bossert) talk to Disney Legend, Bob Gurr about his early career, his time at the Walt Disney Company, and working on projects for Steve Wynn's Treasure Island Hotel and Casino. Gurr is an amusement ride designer and Disney Imagineer. His most famous work was for Walt Disney's Disneyland Park, and its subsequent sister parks. Gurr is said to have designed most, if not all, of the ride vehicles of the Disneyland attractions, including Autopia, Haunted Mansion, the Disneyland Monorail, the Submarine Voyage, and the Matterhorn Bobsleds. He was named a Disney Legend in 2004. He also worked on the King Kong Encounter animatronic for Universal Studios Hollywood. *Source, Wikipedia.
