No, "Imagineer John" is not a WDI Imagineer ( as far as i know ) but there is no doubt that he would love to be one. Most of all, Imagineer John is a talented ride designer creating ride concepts in RCT3. This "Wall-e The Extraordinar-e Adventure" ride concept is the latest installment from Imagineer John, Wall-e being one of his favorite characters. This attraction concept pays tribute to the Pixar movie and riders "would be immersed into an all new epic experience".
Something important to know to understand the "camera" moves in the video below: the attraction, as Imagineer John envisioned it will use a robotic controlled arm vehicle called "Carr-e", probably more or less similar to the Kuka robot arm used in the Harry Potter ride at Universal Orlando. Imagineer John would like the ride to be located at WDW Epcot center, which indeed might fit well for a Wall-E ride.
That said, this is just a brilliant ride concept done by a talented fan and not a WDI concept. But who knows, if WDI Imagineers don't have their own Wall-E ride concept - which remains to be prove - they might like the one of Imagineer John! Have a look at this "extraodinar-e adventure" and watch it full screen! By the way, open also your ears as he did also a very nice job on the sound!
