PASSENGER 24: 40+ year former Walt Disney Imagineer who served as a creative leader on such classic attractions as The Great Movie Ride, Muppet*Vision 3D, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Toy Story Midway Mania!, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, and many, many more: Eric Jacobson.
If time is the most valuable thing that a man can spend, then Eric Jacobson has spent wisely. Eric began his Disney career as a Disneyland performer and moved on to WED Imagineering to help design and produce attractions and pavilions for EPCOT Center and Tokyo Disneyland. He retired over four decades later as Senior Vice President Creative Development overseeing the Walt Disney World Resort including: The Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs, water parks, multiple hotels, and other resort-wide entertainment experiences, and mentoring the Imagineers constructing Shanghai Disneyland. Plan now to spend your time equally as wisely as we invite this elusive creative leader aboard our time machine to hear first-hand accounts of his adventures, including recording Barack Obama for “The Hall of Presidents,” reinventing “Star Tours” with ILM, and presenting the legendary Gene Kelly with his animatronic figure for “The Great Movie Ride!”
