The Imagineering Story

The Imagineering Story is a six-episode documentary series that takes viewers behind-the-scenes of Disney Parks. Starting all the way back in the beginning, The Imagineering Story will tell the history and the story of how the Disney Parks were created and how they’ve been maintained all the way through today.

We get to see Walt Disney himself in action building and creating the theme parks, the Disney Parks Cast Members who work tirelessly day in and day out to create magic for the guests, and see how the Imagineers use their creativity to build new and innovative attractions year after year.
