Rob’t Coltrin became a Disney Legend in 2020 (inducted at the D23 Expo 2022 ceremony) after spending 30 years at Walt Disney Imagineering. As a show set designer, concept artist, art director, and creative executive, Rob’t became a go-to artist at Walt Disney Imagineering for concept work, storytelling, and ride layouts. Rob’t is famous for helping design such noteworthy attractions as Expedition Everest, Toy Story Mania, Radiator Springs Racers, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Enchanted Tales of Beauty and the Beast, Mystic Manor, Mickey’s Philharmagic, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (to name just a few). His likeness can also be found as a Disney S.E.A. character (Prof. R. Blauerhimmel, which fittingly translates to “Blue Sky”).
In this podcast episode, I chat with Rob’t about his career at Walt Disney Imagineering, including some of the attractions he helped bring to life. We also “geek out” together about ride layout design and blue sky development.
