Im very curious how the relationship is with bob gurr and others are with disney. If i was disney i would make use of bob (89), margaret kerry (92), julie andrews (85) and there are so many other original employees and stuff. They are all getting up in age and there are so many stories they could tell especially bob gurr. And if you have never heard margaret kerry talk about being tinker bell that should be a show. We have already lost so many of the original artists and park designers they really shouldnt miss this time. Imagine if X Atencio, mary blair, marc davis or harper goff were still alive. they arent even using tony baxter...

I really hope that this will be an ongoing series and not a one shot. It seems like a perfect way to add content to D+ while also advertising the parks and being of interest to us parks nerds. I mean, a second season could easily consist of some or all of the following (and I'm limiting it just to the domestic parks).... POTC BTMRR Tiki Birds Matterhorn (maybe together with Everest in a "Yeti Mountain" premise) Indiana Jones Adventure Spaceship Earth Flight of Passage Rise of the Resistance Carousel of Progress Kilimanjaro Safari another hotel one - maybe Polynesian and/or Contemporary (or even add Grand Floridian for a Seven Seas Lagoon one) something entertainment oriented like "parades" or "fireworks" As an aside, very surprised to see Hall of Presidents featured. I can see them doing a America oriented one given that it is July for the release, but would have probably expected American Adventure instead. Though I guess HoP will talk about Lincoln as well.

I'm so happy to see this. Disney is sitting on a gold mine of material, everyone wants to be able to spend more time in the parks from a distance. The Imagineering Story was an absolute delight, and this seems like a way to keep that energy flowing. I'd love it for this to be a multi season type of deal, where each year we get a behind the scenes look at different attractions/lands. Especially with Frog Mountain happening soon, it would be so cool to see that process documented. Seeing the decision making behind the scenes might also help sell some people upset with the changes coming. This is great news, and I can't wait to binge!! More in-park series, please Disney! :D
