We are so delighted we were able to share Jeff Kurttiâs new book with you, âTravels with Walt Disney: A Photographic Voyage Around the World!â Ryan March recently caught up with Jeff to ask him what Waltâs travels meant to the Disney we know and love today. Hereâs what Jeff had to say:
With a nod to Waltâs love of traveling through Europe, and your love of traveling here to Walt Disney World, weâre so excited about the Voyageursâ Lounge that will be located next to Le Petit CafÃ©. Inside this fun lounge at Disneyâs Riviera Resort, you will be able to experience an artful little gathering place where you can relax and share your favorite vacation memories with family and friends. Featuring dÃ©cor inspired by a collection of book titles that Walt Disney gathered, including Waltâs 1935 European âGrand Tour,â this lounge will showcase some of our unique Disney connections to Europe.
As you may have already known, it is no secret that Walt Disney loved to travel. Just to look around the incredible theme parks spanning three continents, and the ships bearing the Disney name sailing the high seas, the impact of Waltâs love for travel is evident to this day. Weâre excited itâs now 2019 and we are that much closer to welcoming you home to this all-new Disney Vacation Club resort. Plan to come home and be inspired like Walt
