Do you consider yourself to be both a Disney fan and a collector of rare antiquities? Well, you might want to sit down because the legendary Joe Rohde plans on selling many rare items he’s accumulated during his career!
Joe Rohde recently shared news of his upcoming retirement. He’s been working with Walt Disney Imagineering for 40 years. Over the years, he’s acquired many special items and memorabilia. Now he’s decluttering a bit by sharing the news on social media. In the weeks to come, Joe Rohde will be starting to sell some of his personal collection. You can see his announcement below.
After an illustrious 40-year Imagineering career, Joe Rohde just shared his plan to retire on Jan. 4, 2021. We can’t thank Joe enough for his infectious passion, being an incredible teacher and mentor, and for inspiring generations of Disney Imagineers and guests from around the world. Wishing @JoeRohde all the best in his next journey and on the many, many more adventures yet to come.
Joe who turned 65 in September, has been with the Walt Disney Co for 40 years.
“I know, this is going to sound weird for a 65-year-old person, but it’s kind of like a coming-of-age moment. I have things to do that are different than this,” Rohde said Monday. “There are things I want to create, there are things I want to do. There’s only so much time in a lifetime to do these things.”
We wish Joe good luck on his retirement. He will be missed!
