A new window has been installed at Disney’s Hollywood Studios dedicated to the former head of Walt Disney Imagineering, Bob Weis.
Bob Weis Window
Walt Disney Imagineering shared photos of Weis with a copy of his window, alongside Walt Disney World leaders, Ambassadors, and Imagineers.
Weis was an Imagineer for forty-two years and announced his retirement in late 2022. After joining in 1980, he moved to Japan to work on Tokyo Disneyland. He was a creative leader in creating Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Tokyo DisneySea, Disney California Adventure, and Shanghai Disney Resort, as well as several more Disney Parks projects. He was head of Imagineering from 2016 to 2021 and then Global Imagineering Ambassador until officially retiring in early 2023.
The new window is above the Hollywood & Vine restaurant, next to the Roger Rabbit silhouette.
The window advertises “Flower Street Pictures” and lists Weis as the studio head. A quote at the bottom says, “Our productions entertain the world.”
Upon retirement, Weis wrote in a message to colleagues, “I am proud to have been an Imagineer, a collaborator, and someone who loves to do impossible things with impossibly talented people.”
After retiring from Imagineering, Weis joined the design and architecture firm Gensler as their Global Immersive Experience Design leader.
