Episode 6- The Imagineering Story; To Infinity and Beyond

During The Imagineering Story’s final episode, To Infinity and Beyond, Imagineers talk about all the challenges, trials and errors, and ultimately, the success they found when they combined three rides into one to create the signature finale experience in Rise of the Resistance.

The attraction involves a trackless vehicle that glides through the different scenes of the story. However, there is a very cool surprise that will leave guests wondering how Disney pulled that off! We don’t want to give away too many spoilers about the attraction or the show, so we’ll just leave it at that and encourage you to check it out. You won’t regret it!
