DREAMFINDERS: Ron Schneider on the Early Days of Epcot, Playing Walt Disney, and the Future of Theme Park Performance

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Actor and writer, Ron Schneider is known by thousands as the Dreamfinder at Epcot Center, but his life experiences are more than you could imagine! Ron chats with Nathan about going to the first operating day of Disneyland, working with a lion at Magic Mountain and writing the first Halloween show at Universal Orlando. When it comes to theme park performance, Ron’s done it all (including the role of Walt Disney’s frozen head!) and he has plenty of thoughts on the future of the theme park experience.

Be sure to check out his memoir “From Dreamer to Dreamfinder” – available on Amazon and through Bamboo Forest Publishing.

Dreamfinders is a podcast hosted by Nathan Hartman about the creative culture surrounding Disney theme parks. Episodes release every other Tuesday.
