Walt Disney Imagineering make significant appointment for upcoming Walt Disney World projects

According to WDWMagic.com, Walt Disney Imagineering has just completed an organizational reshuffle which appears to point to some significant activity at Walt Disney World in the near future.

Kathy Magnum, a 30 year plus veteran at WDI who has most recently overseen the Cars Land project at Disneyland Resort, has moved to Florida to become ‘Executive Producer, Walt Disney World Portfolio”.  In this new role, Kathy becomes the creative producer for Walt Disney World, partnering with Jack Blitch.  In her new role, Kathy will continue to report to WDI Chief Creative Executive, Bruce Vaughn.  She will also work directly with Meg Crofton and her executive team on behalf of Walt Disney Imagineering.

Joe Rhode continues as creative director at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Eric Jacobson continues with responsibility for the creative side of Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Epcot.

These changes come as Walt Disney World is starting to wrap up on the new Fantasyland expansion, and is nearing ground breaking on AVATAR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
