Jeff sez, "On Saturday, March 29, 2014, there will be an epic Disney event in San Francisco. The Disney Project proudly presents: Walt, WED, and WESTCot. The evening will consist of two multimedia presentations, hilarity, videos, goodie bags, Disney Legends, raffle prizes, and more!"
Presentation 1: Secrets of WestCOT
Your hosts Keith Gluck and Jeff Heimbuch take a look at the estimated $3 billion project Disney had in store for adding a second theme park to their Anaheim property back in the 1990s: WestCOT. Meant to be the West Coast version of EPCOT, Keith and Jeff explore the Future World pavilions, World Showcase countries, and additional on-property hotels planned for the expansion. Presentation will include rare concept art.
Presentation 2: Walt and the Evolution of WED
Disney Legend and former Imagineer Bob Gurr looks back on the early days of Walt Disney Imagineering (known then as WED), and talks about his impressive body of work including projects for Disneyland, the 1964 New York World's Fair, and Walt Disney World.
Bob will also be available for autographs at the end of the evening. There will be an autographed photo of Bob in every goodie bag, so if you don't need another autograph, technically you can leave when the last presentation ends (9:30ish). Although you're more than welcome to hang out till 10:30!
