The Disney attractions from Disney Parks and Resorts are like no other. They are what help make Disney, well, Disney. But have you ever wondered about the stories that inspired those attractions or destinations? An all new docuseries “Behind the Attraction” is coming to Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, and will cover “behind the curtain” footage of some of Disney’s most popular attractions.

This new series — with 10 one-hour-long episodes — will be produced by Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions and The Nacelle Company. It will give viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse of how Disney’s Imagineers and other creative minds brought some of our favorite and classic Disney attractions to life.

Each episode will dive-deep into the history of how these classic Disney Parks attractions came to be and how they have even developed as new ideas surfaced and technology evolved. Viewers will also experience special interactions with huge Disney fans who love to obsess over each little magical detail.

“Since 1955, when Disneyland first opened its doors, the rides and attractions have been impacting generations in such a fun and magical way around the world. This first-of-its-kind series will bring you behind the scenes to experience and celebrate how these beloved attractions creatively came to be. Hope to make Walt and the ‘mouse house’ proud with this one,” said Dwayne Johnson, executive producer and co-founder of Seven Bucks Productions.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to lift the curtain and offer our global audience a captivating experience by bringing the stories behind these magical attractions to life, alongside our brilliant partners at Disney+ and The Nacelle Company,” added Dany Garcia who is also the executive producer and co-founder of Seven Bucks Productions.

The new Disney+ docuseries “Behind the Attraction” will also be executive produced by Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, and Kevin Hill from Seven Bucks Productions and Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry, and Cisco Henson from The Nacelle Company while Brian Volk-Weiss is the director.
