It was a momentous day for retired Disney Imagineer Bob Weis as he was honored with a window in Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May 1, 2023.
Bob’s window is located just above the Hollywood & Vine restaurant at the park, which is fitting because he was instrumental in bringing Disney’s Hollywood Studios to life back in 1989.
Today, May 1, also marks the 34th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, so it is a perfect location to recognize his incredible career with Walt Disney Imagineering.
Bob Weis, Global Imagineering Ambassador and former President of Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI), officially retired on January 2, 2023.
He started his Disney career at Disneyland as a cast member selling popcorn and ice cream, later joining Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI), then called WED Enterprises, in 1980.
In his years with the company, Weis provided creative leadership on projects like Disney-MGM Studios, Tokyo DisneySea, the reimagining of Disney California Adventure, and Shanghai Disney Resort.
Congratulations on your window Bob!
