DDW Pic 261. Imagineer Tribute

Imagineer Tribute
It is common to see tributes to Disney Imagineers and executives throughout Walt Disney World. However most guests overlook them. This advertisement for "Jorodi Masks and Beads" can be found on the outside of several buildings in the Africa section of Animal Kingdom. This is a tribute to Joe Rohde, the Imagineering Senior Vice President who led the team that designed and built Animal Kingdom. He is known for wearing one unique and elaborate earring, so the masks and beads reference probably refers to Joe's "accessories."  The next time you are in Animal Kingdom, keep your eyes open for signs like these that pay homage to those who helped create this amazing theme park.
