Two very special events are coming to Orlando for Disney fans – and you won’t believe how affordable they are. Coming VERY soon is The Walt Disney Birthplace: An Evening with Imagineer Bob Gurr. Bob Gurr is an American amusement ride designer and Imagineer. His most famous work was for Walt Disney’s Disneyland Park, and its subsequent sister parks. In 1953 he inaugurated R.H. Gurr Industrial Design – a company of one, whose first big job was to consult with the Walt Disney Studios on the design of mini cars for a project called Autopia. Walt Disney was so impressed with Bob’s work that he hired him as a permanent employee in his recently formed company, WED Enterprises – whose sole mission was to design and build Disneyland. During his three decades of employment with WED, Bob worked on over 100 designs for attractions that include the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Monorails, Matterhorn Bobsleds and the memorable Flying Saucers. He also worked on the original Abraham Lincoln “Audio-Animatronic” figure for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair, along with Ford Motor Company’s “Magic Skyway” ride. He received the Disney Legend Award, for Imagineering in 2004.
