Passing of Marty Sklar

It is with a very sad and heavy heart that I report the passing of former Walt Disney Imagineer Marty Sklar.

My thoughts on the passing of Legendary Disney Imagineer Marty Sklar

Passing Marty Sklar
Walt Disney Lead Imagineer Marty Sklar

 

I first met Marty Sklar at a special eventput on by the Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet in 2012. At the time, I had a rough draft of my first book. Mr. Sklar was very inspirational and is part of the reason I pressed ahead and now not only have that book in print, but a second book in print and a third in the works.

I had the good fortune to see him talk several times and even got to have a brief private conversation with him twice.

He is not without his controversies, but he was a good man. He brought much joy to countless numbers of people, including me and my family. He took Walt Disney’s founding principles and never wavered from them.  They were successful for Walt, and he continued with that success. I have signed copies of both of Mr. Sklar’s books and will always cherish them and their great words of advise.

I can’t claim to have personally known him, but I have benefited from his writings, presentations, and personal words of advise.

Thank you Marty,

Russell D Flores

MiceChat’s Review of Seen Un-Seen Disneyland

Screen Shot 2014-07-26 at 7.39.00 AM

George Taylor and Jeff Heimbuch just posted a review on Seen, Un-Seen Disneyland on The Disney Review. This is so AWESOME!. I love the review. Here is an opening excerpt:

“George: With the proliferation and ease of publishing books we’ve seen an influx of Disney-related titles, some good and some bad. Seen, Un-Seen Disneyland by Russell Flores is in it’s second edition and it’s a great read for people that are interested in seeing and learning about all of those little details that make up Disneyland. The book is in full color with every photo taken by the author. And we’re talking hundreds of photos!”

The MiceChat’s review of Seen Un-Seen Disneyland is fantastic.
