I have a question! What are imagineers? x

Imagineers are responsible for the creation and construction of the Disney Theme Parks. and much more.

The Imagineering division of the Walt Disney Corporation includes masses of different disciplines from show writers, architects, engineers, graphic designers, light designers, artists, and a lot more than I can even think of right now.

They design the rides, the hotels, the shops, the shows, and almost everything you see in the Disney parks, resorts, cruise ships. They designed the first Disney store, Castway Cay, Disney Quest, and anything else Disney that you can physically see and touch. Imagineers also were in charge of the closing ceremonies of the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, California. They’re also the people who decide where to place hidden Mickeys.

In short, Imagineers are the people who can, and do, make Disney a physical reality.
