About Disney Park Nerds

Welcome to my world of Disney Park Nerds!

I’m Chris and my love for Disney parks ignited slowly, evolving into an adventurous way to see the world. Some of my earliest memories are of annual trips to Disneyland in Anaheim with my family. Growing up in San Diego, these visits were always special.

Later I earned a BFA in Character Animation from the Walt Disney founded college, CalArts. Where I studied the art of animation and production design with former Disney artists. While in school, I learned about the production design and visual development from Imagineers who worked on the parks. Which led to numerous behind the scenes tours and insights about the parks.

To me, Disney parks are more than just rides. They represent a blend of innovative theme park design and deep emotional connections to Disney stories. Experiencing these parks in different cultures has given me a unique perspective, breaking down language barriers and fostering a deeper understanding of people from all walks of life.

Here at Disney Park Nerds, my goal is to share insights about the Disney theme parks and provide tips for the best experiences. I hope to inspire you to discover the magic of Disney while exploring the wonders of our world.
