Critic Reviews for The Imagineering Story Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

The Imagineering Story is enjoyably educational, especially for people who love to take toys apart to see how they work.

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.

More cynical viewers mindful of Disney's (the man and company's) shortcomings and capitalistic pursuits will naysay, but the series leaves viewers with the warm-and-fuzzies.

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.

Perhaps the biggest problem that The Imagineering Story has in its first two episodes is, in and of itself, a compliment: it's too short.

Nov 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Learning about the ingenuity and hard work of the Imagineers still makes the show a worthwhile ride, even if you sometimes question the motives behind its construction.

Nov 12, 2019 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

For Disney world lovers, and even some cynics, is a feast of fascinating trivia and literal world building [Full review in Spanish]

Nov 10, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

    Great show. Wonderful behind the scenes documentary about Disney Imagineering and the story of how the parks and rides were created. What I liked about the show was that it wasn't always sugarcoated, the honesty about the trails and tribulations of Imagineering under different Disney leaders was refreshing.

    The Imagineering Story has been incredible since the start. Moving, engrossing and surprisingly critical at times when needed, Leslie Iwerks series shows us the behind the scenes stories of WED engineering, later named Disney Imagineering, the creative force behind the Disney Parks. Each episode gives us a glimpse into three creative process behind designing and building the parks through interviews and incredible footage.

    Best show on D+ besides the Mandalorian. Perfect for adults questioning the Disney Plus subscription in terms of what they (as an adult) could watch that's not a kids show or movie. Also great for people who love the parks or people who haven't yet experienced the joy of a Disney park

    Absolutely wonderful insight of how some of the greatest technological breakthroughs in entertainment history came about and I was glad to see Leslie Iwerks directs it.
  • Nov 30, 2019
    A great behind the scenes look at Disney World and Disneyland. The interviews and early footage from the beginning of the parks add a lot
  • Nov 29, 2019
    Amazing series about the people, art and technology behind the Magic. A must see!
  • Nov 22, 2019
    It's absolutely amazing the way they build this show!
