About ImagiNERDing

A little more detail about me.

I’m an avid book collector with over 1200 Disney and theme park books in my personal collection. I bought my first Disney park-related book in 1994 while at the Magic Kingdom and I’ve collected everything I can get my hands on since then. My specialty is Walt Disney World history, but I will collect (and read) books on amusement parks, Disney social discourse, biographies, animation and most anything with a connection to Disney.

Check out my list of books about Walt Disney World history!

I’ve been writing about the Disney Company since 2007. From 2011-2013, I wrote two weekly columns at Mice Chat that focused on Walt Disney World history and reviews (books, movies and more). Mice Chat is one of the world’s largest fan-based websites about Disney. UPDATE: I’ve rejoined Mice Chat writing and editing columns about the Orlando-based parks.

I’ve also branched out into other realms of themed entertainment by covering regional parks, like Dollywood and Carowinds.

In 2016, I jumped into YouTube, sharing videos about Disney parks, theme park history, Disney books and my visits to so many other amusement parks in the area.

In 2018, I accepted a position in the Central Florida area, which means I am an annual pass holder to Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, Busch Gardens Tampa and Fun Spot USA!

I was one of the two co-hosts for Communicore Weekly (the Greatest Online Show™), an award-winning podcast dedicated to Disney and theme park history, Disney books, Five Legged Goats, Disney bathrooms and so much more!

I’m also good friends with Zachary, who might or might not be devastatingly handsome.

  1. Hello – We have similar interests in Disney. I’ve been going to Disney since their first year of operation (7/4/72). We stayed at The Contemporary Hotel. We swam in the water out back when
    the wave machine was working. I also am a collector of Disney items. I have every Eyes and Ears from the beginning , most Disneyland line , En Coulisse , Disneyland Tokyo newsletters. I also have the department newsletters when each department had one. The bus drivers , food prep , and boat captains (Eyes & Oars) each had newsletters. I’ve have been photographing and video recording for most of those years. First with VHS recorder and separate camera (a pain) , next with a VHS camcorder , then VHS-C camcorder , 8mm , Hi 8 , digital 8 , and finally my first HD recorder (Sony HD-SR1). With over 100,000 photos and over 12,000 hours of video there is quite a lot. I am currently digitizing all of my pre 2007 videos. Six different cameras and tons of cassettes.
    My book collection is not as large as yours but over 500 books. I am currently thinking of setting up a website with some of my Disney videos. Monorails being towed backwards for repairs , Space Mountain all lit up with people being escorted off the ride onto the catwalks , a walk from the top of Spaceship Earth down the castmembers walkway , and others. I’ve posted a few youtube videos and have done videos for performers at Epcot (Margret Almer and Bodh’akton to name a few.) Currently working on a Raffy video for her. Check out my videos on youtube WDW 4-8-12 (Easter with the Azalea Trailmaids) and My Favorite Hidden Mickey (wiped out by the loading area for Soarin’. We leave for WDW tomorrow and staying at the Poly. In November we stay at The Swan and every December we stay at The Grand Floridian.
    Hope to see you there. I’ll grill you about how to set up a website:)
