Zeitgeist Design & Production Welcomes Disney icon Tom Morris Aboard its Time Machine

Pasadena, California – March 19, 2024 – Excitement is building as Zeitgeist Design & Production prepares for its 33rd time travel adventure on The Spirit of the Time Zoomcast. Set for departure on March 22, 2024, at noon PST, this journey marks the awaited comeback of former Disney Imagineer and industry icon Tom Morris as a passenger aboard the experiential design firm’s legendary time machine.

Known for shaping beloved Disney theme parks and attractions like EPCOT Center, Star Tours, Sleeping Beauty Castle and Fantasyland at Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Carsland at Disney California Adventure, Tom Morris is set to enthrall viewers with behind-the-scenes stories and wisdom from his illustrious 40+ year Disney career. Morris’ inaugural flight took place almost exactly three years ago on April 30, 2021.

“We are thrilled to have Tom Morris back onboard for the continuation of his incredible journey,” shares Ryan Harmon, co-producer and co-host of The Spirit of the Time Zoomcast. “Tom’s influence on themed entertainment is unparalleled. We are privileged to be able to head back to the early 1980s with him and continue time-traveling to the present and beyond!”

During the flight, Morris will help transport viewers through an exploration of his completed and successful Disney park and attraction projects, including the before-its-time DisneyQuest indoor theme park, Carsland’s Radiator Springs Racers, his napkin sketch for the Disneyland Paris castle, and his upcoming book detailing the history of Walt Disney Imagineering and the creation of Disneyland.

“With Tom’s mix of creativity and humor, we’re in for quite the entertaining adventure,” remarks Joe Lanzisero, co-producer and co-host of The Spirit of the Time Zoomcast. “We barely scratched the surface of Tom’s accomplishments on our first flight, so this time we’re really going to get into how so many successful Disney parks and attractions came to be with his influence.”

Hosted by immersive entertainment industry veterans and Zeitgeist executives Harmon and Lanzisero, the popular live online video interview show offers a sneak peek behind the themes, moving its audience without a ride system each month by inviting one incredibly talented industry colleague aboard the company’s time machine for a journey through milestone moments in that individual’s life and career in an attempt to unravel the mystery of what makes a guest experience timely, yet timeless.

Past passengers aboard the time machine include Disney icons Joe Rohde, Tony Baxter, and Rick Rothschild; Universal Creative co-founder Bob Ward; pop culture artist Shag, creative leaders Phil Hettema and Bob Rogers; and three of the “Women of Imagineering:” Peggie Fariss, Tori McCullough, and Beckie Bishop.

Once archived only as video on the Zeitgeist website and its YouTube channel, the entertaining and educational hour-long zoomcast that appeals to fans of theme parks, Disney, Universal, and immersive entertainment is also available as an audio-only podcast on all popular podcast apps, including Apple Podcasts, Audible, Spotify, and Google Podcasts. Viewing and listening are always free.
