    Hello:). I'm Douglas Hindley. I'm a Southern California native and Disneyland pass holder (favorite park, incidentally). Was raised in a Disney family. My dad handled legal contracts with the OLC back when Tokyo Disneyland was just under construction, and I was featured in the park's opening parades - apparently they wanted an American baby alongside Mickey for some reason. I haven't been back to the Tokyo parks since, nor have I been to WDW. Other than SoCal, I can only claim to have seen Disneyland Paris (a mere two months ago), and the wonderful Ohio iron parks. My favorite ride is the original POTC; I'm a traditionalist.

    While I'm new to WDWMagic, I've been a regular Armchair Imagineer over on Theme Park Insider's Theme Park Apprentice competitions. (Dunno how TPI or TPA are regarded 'round these parts.) I won Season 7 with a DisneySky proposal (seen recently on this forum's March Madness battle) and I won Season 8 with Buyan Park, an original proposal for a Russian fairy tale park in St. Petersburg.

    TPA's second Tournament of Champions is coming up, but after that I won't be allowed to compete over there any longer. Once that's done, I'm interested in trying out some WDWMagic communal imagineering projects, trying some new stuff here. Glad to be here! :happy:

    Hello everyone! I am josiah. Animal Kingdom is my absolute favorite park! My favorite attraction is probably expedition everest (although i like them all). still contemplating what to do after high school/ college but im highly considering imagineering of some sort :) i am finishing up my junior year of high school and i have just always loved disney and creative things in general. I play soccer and golf and i create art (mostly paintings) in my spare time. I am a self taught pianist and a devout christian part of the Harvest Bible Chapel chain of churches.

    Welcome Erik!

    We have a group imagineer project going on as we speak if you'd like to join! It'd be a good way to get your feet wet. Happy to see you here!

    And to answer your question - the Imagineer section is a place where you can post your armchair ideas for how to improve theme parks, design your own theme parks, and work with others or individually on a variety of projects!

    Hi guys, I'm Princess Leia (formerly Direwolf27), and I really miss Carrie Fisher :(

    I really love Disney World. Really love it. Anywho, I've posted some armchair imagineering ideas in various threads, and I figured that it would probably be a good idea to post them in this forum where they belong.
