From the earliest days when he was still animating the characters on the page, Walt Disney was the driving force and creative genius behind the Disney company. It was Walt who took all of the risks and, rightfully so, received all of the accolades. That is why it was such a pivotal time in the company when Walt Disney passed away in 1966. This week I wanted to do something a little different in Episode 46: Disney After Walt.
About Phil Gramlich
I was hit with the Walt Disney World bug at the age of 13. I took my first trip with my family to the Most Magical Place on Earth and it hit me. “I want to work here someday,” I told my parents. Six years later I was a Cast Member at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, making magic for guests each and every day.
I started Ear To There Travel because I wanted to bring a little bit of that Disney magic home to those who were in the planning stages of trips to Disney destinations. I want to make it fun, not intimidating or frustrating! Not only am I a former Walt Disney World Cast Member and Universal Orlando Team Member, but I have what many call an obsession with all things Disney. I’d call it more of a hobby, or a passion…okay, I admit it, it’s an obsession! I’ve done it all: Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruises, Adventures By Disney, & more!
As I say on my podcast, it’s my job to take away all of that stress, all of that anxiety, and all of that time that it takes to book a Disney trip (because it takes an awful lot of time), so you can focus on the fun things like having a fantastic time with your family and friends and enjoying the magic!
