The opportunity to discover in particular how the Disney "imaginers" designed and built each castle, the complexity of the public transport network of each park, or even the genesis of the emblematic Disneyland Hotel, through the 10 episodes built around specific topics:

This series perfectly complements another series also available on Disney+: “ Once upon a time there were the Imagineers, the Disney visionaries » (The Imagineering Story) released in 2019. It focuses on Walt Disney Imagineering and takes an in-depth look at the history and creation of Disney theme parks and attractions around the world.
