Disney Legend Hits the Cruise CircuitCharles Ridgway, author of Spinning Disney’s World, shared his memories of working with Walt Disney as one of the guests aboard Podcast Cruise 2.0 with Disney Cruise Line.

Ridgway, along with Imagineer Bob Gurr, design developer of attractions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, and singer Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in the Little Mermaid movie, regaled more than 600 DISboard guests and DIS Unplugged Podcast crew during the four-day cruise to the Bahamas in December.

Ridgway and Gurr each told their stories about working with Walt Disney then they were paired together for questions and answers from the audience afterward. David Parfitt, the senior correspondent for DIS and DIS Unplugged, considers the event “ incredible … one of the highlights of the cruise.” A book signing aboard the ship was also a hit, says Parfitt.

Ridgway, a Disney press agent for 40 years, headed up public relations for the company’s parks in Anaheim, Orlando, Paris, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. He shared his memories and the creative ways he marketed Disney in Spinning Disney’s World, published by The Intrepid Traveler ($24.95). Since his retirement, he travels the globe as a travel writer and photographer.

DIS and DIS Unplugged are an online magazine and Internet Radio Show devoted to travel to the central Florida theme parks.
