McNair Wilson is a retired Walt Disney Imagineer who coined the term “Streetmosphere” (now commonly used in the theme park industry) and created street theater performances across the Disney Parks, especially at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios (at the time it was still called Disney-MGM Studios).
