A journal of my life in Themed Entertainment — memories and lessons learned from 40 years with Disney, Universal, Six Flags and others.  This is a chronological account, possibly the first draft of a book…

    Dear mr. Schneider.

    It’s your friend Miranda from Panamá! Well, my birthday is approaching fast! (July 26) and well, since I always wanted to have a little figment, I’ve decided to make one! I just painted a dragon toy my mother bought me a long time ago and re- painted it, the only thing that doesn’t look the same are the horns, (I didn’t know how to to make them look the same) but anyways, I hope you like it,

    Have a good day!


    Here it is:

    Hey Ron! Let me tell you something, many people may think that I’m waaaay to young to remember the Dreamfinder since I’m only 11 but that’s not the case, you inspired me to follow my dreams and to keep dreaming! I’m planning on purchasing your book for my birthday, and I would love to meet you one day since I never got to met the Dreamfinder, and I just wanted to tell you that.

    Thank you for inspiring me mr. Schneider, you are the best!

    Did your book come out? I think it would be a good read!

    I recently bought your book (with audible recording) and have been thoroughly enjoying it! I loved Figment as a child, meeting him and Dreamfinder on my first WDW visit in 1993.
    I now work in an art museum, and we do an illuminated procession twice yearly, for which we make our own lanterns. Because of the emphasis on imagination and creativity, and my love for Figment and what he and Dreamfinder stand for, I made a Figment luminary. He is about 3.5 feet tall and my way of encouraging everyone to use their imagination! https://www.dropbox.com/s/yef6e5yv0fnrdyd/2015-11-09%2020.57.42.jpg?dl=0

    I LOVED reading your history. This is going to be a funny question, but do you have the title/artist for that picture on your banner (the Disney castle going from a blueprint to reality). What a great symbol of imagination morphing into reality.

    • Thanks, Kevin. I’m embarrassed to admit I don’t have that information. I copied it off the internet months before the thought of creating the blog ever occurred to me… then used it for the same reason you put so well. RS

  6. Ron Schneider’s book was fantastic. I just finished reading it tonight, an I am sad that I am finished. I felt like he was telling his story to me in such a personal way. There were times when I just felt so moved by some of the passages about old Disneyland and Ron’s thoughts about Walt that I got a little misty eyed. I really loved this book, and I feel like I got a healthy dose of education and entertainment. Thanks Dreamfinder!

    Excellent blog! Thanks for sharing your memories and experiences, especially those from Golden Horseshoe and as Dreamfinder.
    I think you were Dreamfinder when I went to EPCOT. If possible, can I send you the pic of us together and see if it was indeed you?
    I saw your interview on Orlando Attractions YouTube and it was great, especially where you sang that wonderful Sherman Brothers song, “One Little Spark.”
