In 2009, he was inducted into the Disney Hall of Fame as a Disney Legend!  He was the Genie in Aladdin!  And, he made many hearts a little lighter with his special brand of comedic talent!  Robin Williams died on August 11, 2014.  I’m not going to spend time on the details of his death!  Instead, I want to take a moment and look at his impact on the Walt Disney Company!

Many of his movies were produced under a production company under the Disney banner, and he also voiced a few very popular attractions at Walt Disney World, and Disneyland.  He was the voice of The Timekeeper attraction, and was partnered up with CBS News icon Walter Cronkite in Back To Neverland at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s California Adventure.  You can see a video of this on YouTube!

Some of the other titles include: Good Morning Vietnam, Dead Poet’s Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, Flubber, and Old Dogs!

I am a Disney fanatic who can't get nearly enough time to be there! I am married to someone who isn't as into it as I am, but tolerates my "hobby". I live in Ohio, but would love to make the move to Orlando, if I would work either at Walt Disney World, or in some peripheral business serving the WDW area! I invite you to read, comment, and submit ideas anytime at threestrandswdw@outlook.com. Or, even better, send me a trip report to share with others! We all like to live through the experiences of others, help us stay connected to the magic! Thank you!!
