Word of the Week – Ryman

Welcome to This Weeks Show!

Disney Legend and Imagineer Herb Ryman is the subject of this week's show. You might remember that I have already done a Word of the Week about him, but these two stories also need to be told! I hope you enjoy this week's Word of the Week - Ryman.

Herb Ryman's influence over Disneyland is much deeper than the weekend he spent with Walt at the studio and his original Disneyland sketch. This week I'll tell two stories you may have never heard about the late Disney Legend.
