I am going to pick up a subscription to Disney+ for the first time. I know, I know, I am just fashionably late to the party. Beyond all the Marvel and Star Wars stuff that is mainly driving the purchase, what park operations, history, or Imagineering shows are must-sees?
Imagineering Story is good. Behind the Attraction has great info but I can’t get past the terrible narration.
Hobbes: "What's the point of attaching a number to everything you do?"
Calvin: "If your numbers go up, it means you're having more fun."
Yeah, the Imagineering doc alone is worth the subscription. The quality of the film restoration pre-Disneyland is extraordinary.
Decorating Disney is a really interesting one.
Behind the Attraction is really neat but, as mentioned above, the narration is not the best.
Those shows mentioned above are all great. I have rewatched them all a couple times and they still hold my attention because of the amount of detail they go into. A lot of my colleagues are in those shows so that makes it fun to watch for me.
While not having to do with operations or WDI, but touching on history, I highly suggest 'Waking Sleeping Beauty' and 'The Pixar Story' docs. Both are really fascinating. Another good series is 'Prop Culture' if you are into movies.
Frank and Ollie (for history).
Just about any of the shorts, but especially Forky Asks a Question and the new ones where Olaf reenacts Disney movies (for laughs).Last edited by BariMan, Monday, November 15, 2021 10:17 AM
The Disney Parks Sunrise Series is nice to have on in the background.

Thanks all for the recommendations!
I'd recommend "Howard" on Howard Ashman and "The Boys" about the Sherman Brothers.
To being an "us" for once - instead of a "them".
