Documentary Filmmaker Hosting “A Evening with Disney Legends”

One of Walt Disney’s most ambitious projects would never move beyond the design stages as originally envisioned. Long before it was a theme park, EPCOT was intended to be a community that housed families and businesses and explored and developed the newest technologies. A new documentary, Walt Disney – Master of Dreamers will highlight Walt’s biggest vision as told by some of those closest to him, his imagineers.
