The Los Angeles Times has a great piece on Kim Irvine, art director at Walt Disney Imagineering, covering how she has stewarded Disneyland through many changes, all while making certain the park doesn't lose sight of its heritage.

[Irvine] also never stops thinking of ways to use these large-scale projects to enhance the park or bring back something that has been lost, be it seating and dining in an underused area of Adventureland, returning original narration to Pirates of the Caribbean or lessening the blow of a shortened Rivers of America by creating a lush landscape full of waterfalls, a goal since she and others lost the battle to save the waterfall associated with the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland, an early Frontierland attraction.
