WDW Radio # 552 - Disney and Space

Description

WDW Radio # 552 - Disney and Space Walt Disney was more than a pioneer in animation, moviemaking, theme parks and family entertainment. In fact, Walt Disney was a boy fascinated by futuristic tales of space travel, and who would, unbeknownst to many, help the United States imagine the experience and reality of actual space travel. This week, we’ll explore how Walt and his Imagineers worked with Wernher von Braun and used television to help influence public perception of rockets and space travel through his Disneyland TV specials (including some shows that were never made), and contribute in a meaningful way to America’s space program. We’ll also look at how he inspired and impacted many people, including President Eisenhower, as well as Disney’s portrayal of space in feature films and television. We’ll then explore the history of space-themed attractions in Disneyland and Walt Disney World, and current contributions to and with NASA.
