Walt Disney grabs a group of artists and engineers for the purpose of building a dream into reality. These ‘Imagineers’ formulate a set of design principles that transport people from their everyday lives to lands of imagination.

It was surprising to hear how big of a risk this was for the company, and if it hadn’t gone well it could have been the end of all of it. This place was the first of its kind, and luckily a smash hit right away. Decades later people of all ages still visit it, and have a wonderful time there.
