Hi everyone, and welcome back to the WDW Radio Hall of Fame. For those who are unfamiliar with the Hall, this is where you, the WDW Radio fan, gets to help choose who is forever immortalized in the Hall of Fame.
My name is Dan, and I’ll the Janitor here at the Hall. Took a bit of a break when the Magic Madness tournament came around, then came Endgame, followed by Game of Thrones. Now, I’m back. I keep everything here clean, including the plaques of our previous inductees:
- Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse
- Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress
- The Partners and Sharing the Magic Statues
- Main Street Electrical Parade
- The Dole Whip
- The Sherman Brothers
The last category we took a look at was Architecture, and choosing only a few examples of the best architecture is no easy feat. Just creating the land in its own right is hall worthy. But here we go … and we’ll go into more detail when
- The Tree of Life – Disney Parks published this time-lapse construction video of the Tree of Life, which I embedded below. The base of an oil rig was used as the structure for the tree, which reaches 145 feet in height and has 100,000 man-made leaves.
- Contemporary Resort – It may seem simple now, but this was a unique process called “unitized modular construction.” Did you know that this process was also used for the Polynesian?
- Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – Amazing theming, impeccable craftsmanship, and a feel that truly transports you to the wilderness.
- Spaceship Earth – If you think about it, how many sphere-shaped buildings do you see, let alone at that size?
Now, it’s your choose to one. Which one will it be? Make sure you vote before Saturday, June 15 at 10:00pm. Your vote matters! Also, let us know why you voted the way you did in the comments below or in the WDW Radio Box People group on Facebook.
