Ron Schneider, Author of From Dreamer to Dreamfinder
Born in Southern California in 1952, Ron Schneider was bitten by the performing bug at an early age. A fledgling puppeteer, ventriloquist, magician and actor, he was fascinated by Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Anaheim and so was born his dream of one day performing at Disneyland. Ron got his first theme park job in 1970, and over the ensuing 40 years he’s done it all writing, directing, consulting, managing and performing for multiple production companies and in eight theme parks and five themed restaurants across America.
Among his favorite roles are comic in Disneyland’s Golden Horseshoe Revue, King Henry VIII in 1520 A.D. Medieval Restaurant, the strolling Dreamfinder in EPCOT Center’s Journey Into Imagination, creative supervisor for Universal Studios Florida’s Celebrity Look-Alikes and historical re-enactor in Titanic, the Exhibition. Today, Ron makes his home in Central Florida where he keeps busy writing, acting, doing voice-overs and consulting on media and themed entertainment projects.
