Imagineering junkies know all about the Walt Disney Company’s Digital Immersive Showroom, AKA “the DISH.” This super cool space allows the Imagineering team to to pre-visualize how an attraction or other Disney Parks experience will look in advance.

This means that Imagineers can test various ideas for an attraction before construction even begins. In addition to helping them create the best possible immersive experience for Guests, the DISH can solve structural and logistical issues. 

In the third “A Virtual Tour of Walt Disney Imagineering” video, Associate Visual Effects Designer, Garrett Clark, gives viewers an inside look at how Disney’s DISH functions.

Clark takes Disney Imagineering fans on a coast-to-coast tour of Disney Parks, starting in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and ending in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure at Disneyland Resort.

Creating Incredible Worlds

He explains how WDI uses the DISH to allow designers, architects, and other Walt Disney creatives to create the incomparable Disneyland and Disney World experiences that make Disney theme parks the best in the world.

The Disney Imagineer crew uses the DISH for every new theme park development. When Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was in development at Disneyland Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this futuristic space helped bring Batuu and its amazing attractions to life.

At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the Digital Immersive Showroom allowed everything from the iconic Tree of Life to the banshees at Pandora’s Flight of Passage to go from imagination to reality.

A Glimpse Inside Imagineering

Disney’s recent #DisneyMagicMoments initiative has offered a rare glimpse into the behind-the-scenes efforts that keep Disney magic alive, even in these unprecedented times.

For Imagineering fans in particular, the Walt Disney Imagineering tour videos have been a special treat from Walt Disney Studios. Last week’s look inside the famous sculpture studio shows the more hands-on side of Disney Imagineering, while this tour of the DISH allows viewers to step inside one of the department’s most technologically advanced features.
