About the Speaker

Bob Gurr was hired by Walt Disney in 1954, just ahead of the opening of Disneyland. With a background in car design, Gurr is most famous for designing many of the early ride vehicles of Disneyland, including Autopia cars, Matterhorn Bobsleds, and Haunted Mansion Doom Buggies. His fascinating career reaches beyond Disneyland to rock concerts, Las Vegas, the Olympics, and more.

Help Us Continue Our Digital Efforts

Since opening over 10 years ago, we have sought to make the museum a place where our guests could find animation, innovation, and inspiration and immerse themselves in the remarkable life story of Walt Disney—the man who raised animation to an art, tirelessly pursued innovation, and created a distinctly American legacy, transforming the entertainment world.

Over the course of our current closure, we have increased our digital presence to stay true to our mission. Your donations ensure that we can continue opening our museum virtually to the world, and that future generations can continue to be inspired by Walt Disney’s life and legacy.
