Bob Gurr

One of the last direct links to Walt Disney himself is legendary Imagineer Bob Gurr. In 1954 Walt Disney asked Bob to design cars for Autopia. Walt was so impressed with his work, that he asked Bob to join WED where he helped breathe life into the Disney Parks by designing many of the vehicles including the monorail, Peoplemover, Haunted Mansion Doombuggies, the submarines, the fanciful vehicles you see up and down Main Street and many others. Bob is also the designer of King Kong for the Universal Studios tram tour and helped bring excitement to Las Vegas with his pirate ship design for Treasure Island Casino and Hotel. Bob received the prestigious Disney Legend Award in 2004 and his handprints adorn the Court of Legends at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. After such a long-spanning accomplished career, Bob still makes time to delight fans young and old by speaking at a variety of special events and meetings. Bob currently hosts a bi-monthly Disney History Bus tour in Los Angeles. Fans can also catch him on his new talk show "The Bob Gurr Show" monthly on YouTube and Patreon. He can be seen frequently around Southern California appearing at various events and panels. Bob is humorous, loves to tell stories, and is always up for question-and-answer segments.
