Day 2 May 4, 2013 Part 12
On our last update, we just finished going through the Disney Archives and now are at the Disney Legends Plaza to see all the different plaques of all the people that contributed to the Disney Company. I was so excited to see some of my favorite Disney Imagineers plaques during the D23 Day at the Walt Disney Studios and Archives tour. It has been a few posts since I have just been showing all the Disney Legends plaques at the Disney Legends Plaza.
Now back with more pictures of the plaques at the Disney Legends Plaza.
Charles Chuck Boyajian
Another plaque that I was looking forward to seeing was Roger Broggie. Roger Broggie was another train enthusiastic that has helped Walt Disney build trains at the Disney parks and worked with Walt Disney to help build the Carolwood Pacific Railroad in his backyard. I met his son Michael Broggie a few times at train exhibits in Sacramento and at the D23 Expo when he was with the Carolwood Pacific Railroad group. Another interesting fact about Roger E. Broggie is that one of the steam engines at the Magic Kingdom Engine #3 has his name on it. It is the 4-6-0 Ten Wheeler green steam engine.
Joe Fowler plaque. Admiral Joe Fowler was the construction boss for Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Another fact about Admiral Joe Fowler has his name at the dock harbor at Disneyland where the Mark Twain and Columbia ships are stored when not in service. The last one is that his name is on one of the ferries at the Magic Kingdom.
Dick Van Dyke plaque
Carl Barks and Sterling Holloway
Fess Parker is known for his portrayals of Davy Crockett and Bill Walsh.
Dick Nunis and Charlie Ridgway
Yale Gracey and Al Konetzni
Paul Frees and Don Edgren
Ginny Tyler and Al Dempster
Annette Funicello was the most popular Mousketeers on the Mickey Mouse Club and Jimmie Dodd.
Thats it for this post and I will have more pictures from the Disney Legends Plaza during the D23 Day at the Walt Disney Studios and Archives.
