 Travels with Figment: On the Road in Search of Disney Dreams is the final book from Disney Legend Marty Sklar. In his fifty-four years at Disney—among his assignments in his first ten years was writing personal materials for Walt Disney—Marty travelled the globe, creating Disney magic and committing his adventures to memory. After his retirement from Disney, Marty kept on travelling, with book tours sharing his memoir Dream It! Do It! My Half-Century Creating Disney’s Magic Kingdoms and his book full of Imagineering “secrets,” One Little Spark! Mickey’s Ten Commandments and The Road to Imagineering. In response to the most-asked question raised on his book tours—”When can we read more stories about the Disney world you lived in for more than half a century?”—he drew upon his memory to tell stories he hadn’t shared before. And in this fresh volume, Marty regales readers with more captivating tales from his storied career. Accolades and tributes to Marty upon his passing in 2017 reinforced the depth of his legacy and impact. Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger put it this way: “Everything about Marty was legendary—his achievements, his spirit, his career. He embodied the very best of Disney, from his bold originality to his joyful optimism and relentless drive for excellence. He was also a powerful connection to Walt himself. No one was more passionate about Disney than Marty, and we’ll miss his enthusiasm, his grace, and his indomitable spirit.” Travels with Figment is a collection of tales told memorably by Marty, spanning the globe and nearly six decades. Travel along and enjoy the truly fascinating adventures of this exceptional man.
