Claude Coats was an artist, background artist, animator and set designer, known for his work with the Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.
I took a trip to visit those other parks down the road at Universal Orlando on my last trip to Walt Disney World. This is how it went.
Universal Orlando reopened amid the Covid-19 pandemic more than a year ago. It had been more than 9 years since my last visit to Walt Disney World's biggest local rival. I decided that it had been long enough and it was time to pay a visit to the home of Harry Potter, Dr. Seuss, and Marvel's Superheroes (at least east of the Mississippi River).
The 50th Anniversary Celebration for Walt Disney World begins on October 1, 2021. We'll give you the scoop on what new things will be opening in 2021 and beyond!

Who better to go more in depth into the history of the Disney Monorail Systems than Disney Legend and Imagineer, Bob Gurr? Walt Disney himself asked Bob to design and build the first ever monorail in the Western Hemisphere and Bob's creation premiered in Disneyland in 1959.
