In this episode we conclude our 3-part interview with Bill Rogers and Camille Dixon, the official voices of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure respectively. I hope you enjoyed and learned a lot from parts 1 and 2, as Bill & Camille talked about their history in radio, becoming and being the official voices of the parks, some pretty cool announces, having had “real jobs,” their new PBS show On Tour, and improv—including a quick improv game—and more.
In this episode Bill & Camille talk about:
- The first time they really realized they were part of something really special, and when that still comes to mind;
- Memories of working with Don Dorsey;
- Cool stuff about the Disneyland fireworks;
- Why they can now do only the official park announcements for the most part;
- Mickey Climbs the Matterhorn;
- The gig Bill would like in the parks, and his friend who has it now;
- What else Camille would like to have as a gig in the parks;
- What each would want to do working for Disney outside of voiceover and announcer;
- Some appreciation for Disney’s Aulani Resort;
- What they never get asked that they wish people would ask them;
- Shout outs for many people who make their jobs as cool as they are;
- What inspires them;
- Some challenging, practical, and encouraging advice to you for following your dreams;
- Shameless Plug Time.
