Meet WDI Imagineer Scott Drake, Shanghaî Disneyland Tomorrowland Show Designer

Scott Drake, is executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering and he moved with his family to Shanghai three years ago to oversee the construction of Tomorrowland, as Scott is the show producer / designer of the land that he built with his team of Imagineers.
Fortune Magazine just posted a great article about Scott with exclusive behind the scenes pictures and interesting infos like: the track for the TRON Tomorrowland ride is 966 meters long, and the cable and wiring required to run it could circle Shanghai 37 times. “We got to do this Tomorrowland in a new way,” Drake says, “with cutting-edge tools and technologies that didn’t exist when Walt built the original.”

I suggest that you jump to the Fortune article HERE and you can have a look at some of the great pics below coming from it, you'll even see Bob Iger riding with Scott Drake the TRON Lightcycles Power Run coaster for the first time, and Bob loved it!

On this last picture below, Scott Drake is in the Buzz Lightyear Planet Rescue ride with his two daughters.
