Every Disney fan craves a behind the scene look at the magic that makes their lifelong memories. Disney+ released “The Imagineering Story” and for ravenous fans, this only seems to have spurred on more curiosity about the company. Luckily, the company thought ahead on this one, and One Day at Disney appeared on our Disney+ menu!
One Day at Disney is different from its docuseries sibling. The series and the film do a great job narrowly missing each other and not making the information redundant. Whilst The Imagineering Story specifically covers an area within the company that changes over the years, One Day at Disney covers a variety of jobs in Disney’s many different positions and careers throughout the company. These jobs vary. You may recognize some, such as Robin Roberts who is an anchor at Good Morning America. She illuminates how important her job has become to her and the role she plays in the lives of everyday Americans. Other Disney cast members may not be so recognizable. You meet Mark Gonzales, who works on the very important Disney Railroad in Disneyland. He expresses the love and fulfillment of his jobs and making magic in the lives of children and adults alike every single day.
This documentary does an amazing job of showing you behind the scenes, but while also making sure that each person gets the credit they deserve for all the hard work they do. Each person interviewed carries a special role on their shoulders and makes sure they put their best foot forward in meeting the standard they know is expected from them.
Disney+ has not ended there. The One Day at Disney Documentary is only 59 minutes long – but it gives a great introduction into the series of shorts that will be released on a weekly basis. One Day at Disney Shorts will be highlighting different jobs and positions within the company, all with a variety of interests. The first episode covers animator Eric Goldberg, whilst the second covers Thom Self, a Mechanist Scuba Diver. This not only shows the variety of jobs that Disney employs but also that jobs are not linear. Each one is slightly different and each one is imperative to the success and function of the company.
For those looking for an educational and heartwarming movie and show, check out One Day at Disney and the shorts that will follow for the next 52 weeks. It is sure to give its viewers new knowledge and appreciation as to what goes on in the background of places like Disney World, Disneyland, Marvel, ABC, and all the other companies Disney manages!
