Just your friendly neighborhood fan of tropical hideaways, Victorian boardwalks, mid-century tomorrows, ancient temples, and cursed forests! In between dreaming of Dole Whips, I'm a museum experience developer.

Let’s Face It: It’s Time to Bring Characters to Epcot. This is How We Got Here.

Wednesday, October 24, 2018
