WDW Radio # 614 – Legends of Walt Disney Imagineering: Joe Lanzisiero Interview, Part 1

In my continuing series highlighting the legends of Walt Disney Imagineering, this week I sit down with Joe Lanzisiero, former Senior Vice President of Creative at Walt Disney Imagineering. Joe joins me to discuss his personal journey, including his work at Walt Disney Feature Animation, working under and with Tony Baxter and Marty Sklar at Walt Disney Imagineering, and the influence of Marc Davis. We also discuss his work on attractions and shows in Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea, including the genesis and creation of Mystic Manor’s characters, design, technology, and story. We go in-depth into the theory, process, and emotional impact of storytelling, and Joe also shares advice for how to be an Imagineer.
