Because of Bawb my oldest DD and I always get a Dolewhip at least once a trip. We usually get the Dolewhip as our last thing to do at MK. On the walk out of the park I look for Bawbs "secret" spot to see the Parade.....

This is a tradition now because of Bawb.

Later,
Dan

70's to 1997 too many trips to count.

Disney is a lens that focuses on people.
Sometimes it exposes the worst.
Most of the time it highlights the best.

Bawb was on a cable TV show with his son about Disney and it has to be one of the most awesome shows I've ever seen. Not even sure where that could be found nowadays, but it's outthere.

I had just found the Dis about 6 monts before he passed, and I was shocked and sad to hear the news of his passing because he just came across as one of the most genuine persons I had ever heard.

He was one of a kind; generous, kind, funny, warm-hearted...a truly unique person. Miss you Bawb!

It was weird to see this thread again. I remember when I saw it the day Bob passed away. I have never met Bob but I was totally crushed. I had always hope to meet him one day. I kind of feel like I did know him though. I sure do miss Bob!!

I just saw a recent wdw video podcast on Bob Varley. Going to look up some more video/threads/podcasts about him, but from the sounds of it, he was a really special guy. I always wondered who Bob Varley was when I watch the youtube podcasts and Pete says "From Bob Varley studios." So, from now on I will know where the name came from.

I remember Bawb as he would say. I would love to have hung out with him in the parks, he seems like he was my kinda guy.

I have to admit I panicked for a second when I saw this post - thought it was a current thread (didn't look at the stats) - duh! Anyway, glad I saw it anyway - gave me a moment this morning to remember Bawb. Such good times on the podcasts - so many laughs! We love ya Bawb!
