Bradbury Beyond Apollo

Bradbury’s long association with WED (later Walt Disney Imagineers) resulted in the 1982 opening of EPCOT and the Spaceship Earth geodetic sphere that he had worked on for more than a decade. Chapter 17 describes the milestones of Bradbury’s participation in Spaceship Earth’s ride display, themes, and audio narration, and his opening-day experiences at Disney World. This cross-country trip included rail and automobile mishaps, and Disney executives, including Roy Disney, were able to convince Bradbury to return to Los Angeles by way of his first airline flight. Chapter 17 includes brief context for the Disney Studio filming of his novel Something Wicked This Way Comes.

Keywords:   Ray Bradbury, Disney Imagineers, EPCOT, Spaceship Earth, Disney World, Something Wicked This Way Comes
