How in the world did The Walt Disney Company come into possession of the famous cruise liner, the Queen Mary, Howard Hughes Spruce Goose airplane and over 200 acres of surrounding land at the port of Long Beach, California? Did you know that for many years they operated the Queen Mary and had plans to build a theme park, hotels, restaurants, a marina, a cruise ship terminal and even a monorail and more?
Well, we are going to "cruise back in time" with Disney historian and author, Jim Korkis to tell us this fascinating and detailed story. This was a monumental and amazing project that Disney wanted to construct. It would have been the most incredible Disney project ever and Jim has all the unbelievable information and why it was ultimately abandoned.
Jim is author of over 30 books and has worked for The Walt Disney Company in many different and interesting capacities. If you are interested in Disney history and what goes on behind the scenes, Jim definitely always has a wonderful story to share.
You can find Jim's books on Amazon.com
You can also find his books at ThemeParkPress.com
Jim also writes a column for MousePlanet.com too!
Enjoy the show!
