Location: Africa, Disney's Animal Kingdom

In the past we have taken a look at different ways Disney Imagineers have marked their signature throughout the parks whether it's written in blocks or marked by a simple stone. Today we will be taking a look at how one of the head Imagineers has made his mark throughout the village of Harambe inside Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Joe Rohde joined Walt Disney Imagineering in 1980 where he worked on several projects dealing with EPCOT Center. The projects consisted of Mexico, Norway, and Captain EO (where he makes an appearance in the preshow video). As time went on he began to make his way up in the world of Imagineers until the 1990s where he became the lead designer of Disney's Animal Kingdom.

To pay tribute to his vision that became a reality, fellow Imagineers placed a clever nod to their leader throughout Africa in an advertisement:

JORODI when read slowly reads the name of the famous Imagineer, Joe Rohde!
