When Walt Disney World’s newest theme park, Epcot Center opened in 1982, there were only two characters present. These characters, the charming and whimsical Dreamfinder and the curious purple dragon, Figment, were both originally portrayed in the park by the same man. This week we talk with that man on Episode 78: A Chat With Epcot’s Original Dreamfinder, Ron Schneider.
Ron Schneider has worked in theme parks for more than 40 years in many different roles. Disney fans will instantly recognize him as the face and voice of the original Dreamfinder.
