About Bob Gurr

Iconic Imagineer and Disney Legend Bob Gurr is the only remaining original imagineer among those assigned by Walt Disney to design Disneyland in 1954.

Bob is currently featured on “The Imagineering Story” for Disney +, the new ultimate streaming destination for all things Disney.

Bob had a hand in designing most all of the attraction vehicles with wheels in the original Disneyland park including: 

  • Autopia cars
  • Haunted Mansion Doom Buggies
  • Monorail
  • Submarine Voyage
  • Matterhorn Bobsleds
  • Peoplemover
  • Flying Saucers
  • Main Street Omnibus
  • Disneyland Fire Engine
  • and many more…
Bob also developed the first realistic humanoid animatronic Mr. Lincoln for Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. Bob received the prestigious Disney Legend Award in 2004 and his handprints adorn the Court of Legends at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. He has the distinct honor of having a window on Main Street USA in both Disneyland and The Magic Kingdom. Apart from Disney he designed the King Kong Encounter animatronic for Universal Studios Hollywood, designed the flying UFO for the opening ceremonies of the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, assisted Steven Spielberg in pre-production for the Jurassic Park T-Rex animatronic dinosaur, designed effects for Michael Jackson’s Victory tour as well as countless other projects and attractions that have entertained us for years and will continue to live on for generations to come.

Waltland Tour Update Regarding COVID-19.

Dear Guests,

Like so many others, we have suffered a major disruption of business during this global pandemic. For those of you who were scheduled to join us in recent months, we thank you for your continued patience. Because of the additional health concerns for those in Bob’s age group, and to further avoid any potential risks to his well-being, we have decided to postpone all 2020 tour dates. In addition, two of our major tour stops are currently closed to the public and they are uncertain if they will reopen this year.  We plan to resume tours in January 2021, not withstanding any continued government closures.

While we are not able to offer refunds, we are happy to announce that we will be offering ticket transfers to any of our upcoming Waltland tour dates in 2021.  If you’re a general admission ticket holder, finding an alternate date should be easy. For those of you with any type of upgrade tickets, if you are not able to find the same upgrade tickets for your new tour date, we will be happy to adjust the price of your initial purchase. Simply let us know when you email us with your new date. Once you commit to a new date, we are not able to transfer it again so please be sure that the new date works with your schedule.
