He can do it all; animation, character, story, staging, design, theme park attractions. He is one of Walt’s nine old men, his renaissance man, Marc Davis. Marc is well known for classic Disney attractions such as the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Haunted Mansion. And what better way to see the attractions through Marc’s eyes than hearing about them in his own words. Pete Doctoer and Christopher Merrit’s “Marc Davis in His Own Words: Imagineering the Disney Theme Parks” allows readers to meet Marc for themselves. In this episode, Courtney and Emily, meet Marc in volume one and explore his career from his early days in animation to his transition to WED and creating attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean.
