Biography

Midwestern Disney Parks and Universal Parks enthusiast who punctuates trips to the Temple of the Forbidden Eye with visits to Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Islands of Adventure and Kings Island. I moonlight (er, daylight) as a teacher at one of the world's largest science centers. I'm a "globetrotter" wannabe (so far, Tokyo Disney Resort is my most far-flung adventure) and tireless backyard Imagineer.

Favorite ride genre would be ancient adventures... Pharos Lighthouse fanatic; big emotional blubbering mess who's somehow personally invested in Disney California Adventure; favorite roller coaster is a family ride in Virginia. Currently working on a Lost Legends series chronicling lost attractions and a Dateline Disaster series of infamous failures. Get in touch with thoughts and requests!

Florida existed long before Walt Disney World.

Believe it or not, tourism in Florida existed before Mickey set up shop in the formerly quiet wetlands of Orlando, too.

LOST LEGENDS: The Timekeeper: In the 1990s, Disney set out to revitalize the tired Tomorrowland concept. Their new generation of the land of the future would be marked by ambitious world-building, original characters, and absolutely no Disney intellectual properties. As wild as it might've seemed, one of the standout attractions from these new and very different worlds was an adaptive re-use of 1950s technology... Watch as Circle-Vision becomes THE TIMEKEEPER.

POSSIBILITYLAND: Never-Built Disney Mountains: If there's one thing Disney Parks thrill-seekers know to look for, it's a mountain peak. After all, since Disneyland's first decade, the connection between Disney and its mountainous thrills has become second nature. But these ten Disney peaks never saw the light of day...
