Facebook Live Event From Epcot!

We have a new Live Feed from our Disney at Work Facebook site. We broadcasted from the Odyssey Restaurant at Epcot, in an event that talks about the Arts & Science of Building Disney theme parks. You can find the link here.

There are two parts in this video:

Part I: The Art of Building Disney Theme Parks

Our show focuses on two sections: One centers around the artistic contribution of Herb Ryman, which was showcased at the Odyssey. Here are images from the exhibit:

The use of colors by Herb really gave a sense of emotion. This is the Land pavilion.

Part II: The Science of Building Disney Theme Parks.

Our second segment focuses on a story shared by Bruce Laval, who is considered the Father of Guestology. He relates an experience about deciding to build the Odyssey Restaurant, and how they went against the computer simulations ran in the design of Epcot. You’ll definitely want to hear this segment. Here are some photos that support:
