Charles Ridgway Florida Appearances

On a recent podcast, we recently reviewed a book by Disney Legend Charles Ridgway. Charles has been a part of the Disney team since 1963. He has helped open everyone of the Disney parks since then and  goes back to the days of working closely with Walt himself. He is one of the Disney Legends and is honored with his own window on Main Street U.S.A.

In honor of the publication of his new memoir, Spinning Disney’s World: Memories of a Magic Kingdom Press Agent, Mr. Ridgway will make public appearances throughout Central Florida in March and April.

Spinning Disney’s World is published in hardcover by The Intrepid Traveler and will be available for sale at all of Charlie’s appearances.

This is your opportunity to meet a true Disney Legend and hear personal stories of the early days of the Disneyland and the opening of Florida’s Walt Disney World.
