Walt Disney Imagineering shared on Instagram that Rohde would be leading a series of master class work sessions.

  1. I love this guy! One of the best! (I just wish they’d stop taking pics of him from his left side. That stretched-out ear lobe hole creeps me out SO much. LOL) Bravo to Joe! He’s awesome. Love his style.
