We met Glenn, from Passamaquoddy, at MouseFest 2007 right before Mike Scopa’s MouseFest 101 meeting. Lou introduced us and we were immediately thick as thieves. He
refused, er, didn’t leave our side till we gave him a free meal at San Angel Inn at the Mexico Pavilion (almost 8 hours later!). Since then, Glenn has become a great friend and we are processing his application to become an unofficial Taylor/Nerdy Boy.
I first heard Glenn on the WDWRadio show right before MouseFest. He did a segment with Lou about the Yak & Yeti restaurant at the Animal Kingdom. After the segment, I high-tailed it over to Passamaquoddy and was amazed by what I found. It isn’t the typical Disney blog. Glenn has something truly original and quite humorous! If you want to hear more of Glenn, check him out as part of the MouseFest 2007 re-cap with Lou, Jessica, Jeff and Eric (besides, they talk about us quite a bit during that segment!).
As far as Passamaquoddy, Glenn is just someone who passed through the town once and took note… Doc Terminus serves the town with great medicines, elixirs and lotions all the way from Paris… France… Just don’t call him a snake-oil salesman…
We will have our Meet Our Neighbor with Doc Terminus tomorrow.

What is your earliest Disney memory? My first Disney memory is sitting in the family station wagon on the highway, waiting for the single file line of similar station wagons to make its way into the
What is your single favorite attraction?
What is your favorite Disney and non-Disney movie? Mary Poppins… Great Story… Great Performances… Great Music… and a touch of early Disney nostalgia with the mix of live action and animation… non-Disney Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind. Mostly cause I love the clothing and hairstyles.
What is your least favorite park? Least favorite park would have to be Disney’s
What is your favorite park? At this point in my life, Epcot is the place… Broad welcoming layout guides me from some excellent attractions and even more promising food options.
Who is your favorite Disney character? Thumper…
What is your favorite Disney song? Candle on the Water (Pete’s Dragon)
If you could switch places with any historical or living Disney employee, who would it be and why? Peter Ellenshaw… Not only did he spend time with all the greats, he was left alone while working his matte painting magic… And was on location as well… Not only that, I’d be a heck of an artist…
What is you’re must eat food at WDW? Citrus Swirl
Favorite place to stay at WDW? Wilderness Lodge… Beautiful resort with unique environments and great dining options…
What is your favorite place to be at WDW? Section B, Row 1 of Soarin’
What is your favorite restaurant? Whispering Canyon
What is the first thing you want to do on your next trip? Eat at the Concourse Steakhouse before it closes.
What is your favorite fireworks show? Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
Where did you develop your love of Disney?Although I was always surrounded by Disney, it wasn’t until I was older and working in corporate
If you had to choose parks or movies, which would it be? Movies. You can get a dose of Disney while still living a semi-normal life.
Which character do you associate with the most? The Dad from Carousel of Progress… He’s high spirited. He likes to sit and talk… Every once and awhile breaks out in song… And likes all the latest gadgets.
Does any forensic evidence exist linking you to the Kennedy assassination? Indirectly. I have used paprika made from the grassy noll.
Would you make any major changes to the current design of any of the parks? Only by adding something more substantial to the left side of the Animal Kingdom so as to define the park shape. Right now it feels nebulous.
What is the most significant architectural feature of WDW? Spaceship Earth. While
What is the weakest Epcot country? If there were a war at Epcot, I think
What is your favorite Disney guilty pleasure? Eating. Lotsa good food shows unfortunate results…
Where do you spend most of your time online when in the Disney-sphere? Passamaquoddy… It takes a lot of work.
You are the CEO and you have to cut one division: film, animation, parks, music, ABC, or ESPN. Where do you start cutting? Well, if I were CEO, I’d have to cut animation. It is surely the most expensive, least profitable division. But as CEO I can afford to be more idealistic… I’d get rid of ESPN. Although it is massively successful, it doesn’t share synergy with the other divisions.
Do you have any money we can borrow or have? I have 3 ruples. I can lend you 1.
What do you consider the most historically significant or defining moment in Disney history? December 21, 1937.. The premiere of Snow White… Walt’s folly could have shuttered the studio forever, making the idea of the theme parks irrelevant.
How do you feel about Disney’s stance to remove Song of the South and other period specific pieces from its association? I think it is a necessary evil. Disney is a big target for people with agendas… Its harder for those agendas to get traction if controversial pieces are avoided.
If you could change one thing about a Disney Movie, what movie would it be and what would you change? I’d redo the DANCE OF THE HOURS section of Fantasia… I have a gag reflex in attaching the dancing hippos to classic music.
Don’t forget to check tomorrow for the Meet Our Neighbor with Doc Terminus!

Thumper is like my favorite too. I have a Thumper stuffed toy mixed in with tons of Mickeys and Donalds. One of the few toys I haven’t let the dog eat. Next up is Berloiz from Aristocats. Who would have thought Disney would choose an Atheist composer (why because art and creativity aren’t subject to bigotry in the Disney genre, it is about the stage and staying true to the time and the moment)
Great post!! Scary thing is I knew a lot of his answers before I even read them. Can’t wait to see what Doc has to say. His answers may scare me.
Great post an interview. I’m not sure what I liked more – the questions or the answers!
You guys certainly have a lot of very cool neighbors!
