Critic Reviews for The Imagineering Story Season 1

All Critics (10) | 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.

In many respects, the documentary drinks too much of the Disney Kool-Aid, self-mythologizing whenever it gets the chance. Yet, beneath the bias remains an interesting look at the detailed work that goes into the Disney Park.

Jan 12, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

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.

Nov 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 15, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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?

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

    If you are a true fan of Disney Imagineering you will find this series to be enlightening and motivating! I would hope this part of Disney+ would never die out.

    Probably the best show on Disney Plus The Imagineering Story provides an enjoyable and entertaining documentary explaining the creation of Disneys parks. While the show does not go too in depth with each park and attraction the 1st season focuses on the history of the parks and major attractions and hopefully future seasons go more in depth.

    Really well done. While it focuses on technology, logistics and the struggle between imagination and business reality, it's all about Disney. My grade school grandkids loved it & watching it with them was a real treat. Unless you are a Disney hater (and sadly, such folk do exist), you will love it.
