The documentary series follows a series of details about the city of Walt Disney Imagining, a design center, a research center and an innovation lab. In this place, there is a selective group of creators with more idealistic ideas. These creators are responsible for building twelve theme parks around the world.
If you thrill to names like Mary Blair, Xavier Antencio, Yale Gracey and Rolly Crump, and go all wobbly over concept art, dark-ride models and pristine color footage of theme parks under construction, this is a series for you, as it is for me.
The Imagineering Story is more candid than expected. It's the first-hand accounts and archival footage that make all the difference, as the story of how these theme parks were created is often told here by those who lived it.
I had two feelings pulling at me when I was watching the first episodes of The Imagineering Story: "Wow, this is fascinating!" and "Wow, is this boring!" How can I have these two feelings simultaneously?
It's a little sanitized... and sometimes you'll wish it dug deeper into your favorite ride. But it's hard not to come away with a massive appreciation for the people who made these incredible theme parks possible.
