Bob is also doing what every Disney fan dreams about. He is building his own theme park. With story telling at the center of Bob’s park, Whirligig Woods, is set on 21 acres in North Carolina. The park is not for the masses, but a smaller themed environment for families to come and enjoy a day in the natural setting with themed simple attractions. Bob has envisioned family tree houses to be the centerpiece for the park with a rain that takes guests to their depot to spend the night in the park. There might be just one tree house to start but Bob has plans reaching out ten years to grow Whirligig Woods for generations to come.
