At 1:00 p.m. on February 16, 2014, Disney Imagineering Ambassador Marty Sklar will present a ninety-minute-long Inventive Genius Lecture drawn from his book Dream It! Do It! A book-signing will follow the lecture in MSI’s West Pavilion, on the Main Level.

In his fifty-four-year-long career with The Walt Disney Company, which ended with his retirement in 2009, Sklar was a ghost writer for Walt Disney (1901-1966) and played a leading role in the conception and design of Disney theme parks. He served as executive Vice President, and later as President of Walt Disney Imagineering. He led teams that designed EPCOT Center, Tokyo Disneyland, Disney-MGM Studios, Disneyland Paris, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Former Disneyland International Chairman Jim Cora said of Sklar, “He understands the Disney way because he learned at Walt’s knee. Marty is the keeper of the keys, the conscience, the ‘Jiminy Cricket’ of the Disney organization.”

For the general public, tickets for this event will be $19 for adults (in addition to the price of general admission tickets) and $9 for children (ages three-to-seventeen). For Museum Members, the price of tickets will be $15 for adults and $7 for children.

For MSI Doctorate and Household Premium Members, tickets are free. However, these tickets are not available on-line. One would have to call (773) 684-1414.

For D23 Silver and Gold Members, tickets are $15 for adults (in addition to the price of general admission tickets) and $7 for children. However, these tickets are not available on-line. One would have to call (773) 684-1414.
