New Voice of Transport

Hey Everyone! I was deep in a Disney rabbit trail when I saw that Tom Kane, a very common announcer throughout WDW, had apparently suffered a stroke in December, and has lost much of his ability to communicate. As someone who has had family members suffer strokes, my heart goes out to him and his family, and I hope he is able to recover well. However, as we approach the 50th anniversary, and Disney Transport and COVID announcements will change due to protocols changing, are there any rumors going around about who will replace him? I would love Joe Hursh to return, but I was wondering if anyone has heard anything more concrete.

Who could be more appropriate than Mr Walt Disney himself, in the guise of the Academy award-winning actor who portrayed him in Saving Mr. Banks?

What a kick! Someone sent me a link to this discussion board that mentions some of the voiceover work I did for Disney. They also sent me the link to my voice on the Bus transportation.
Haven't listened to that one in awhile!
Thank you all for the kind words! This all is making me feel nostalgic about my Disney days! Hard to believe the 50 year anniversary is this year.
Kind regards,
JOE HURSH

I called Disney Cruise Line the other day and it was your voice. Miss hearing you on the monorail!

Thank you for all the incredible memories, Joe! You will always will be the voice of Disney to me and many others, I'm sure.

Wow that's sad. I saw on his website one can get an autographed pic of him and he's only 59 years old.
