A new exclusive series will debut on Disney+, Friday, July 16 called Behind the Attraction, taking guests behind the scenes of some of their favorite attractions.
Behind the Attraction
The 10-part series will be narrated by Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) and will provide fans a glimpse ‘behind the curtain’ of some of the most beloved attractions and destinations at Disney Parks and Resorts around the world, from Jungle Cruise to “it’s a small world” to the Haunted Mansion to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the normally tight-lipped Walt Disney Company will give this rare look exclusively on Disney+.
Viewers will hear the unique story behind each unique Castle at Disney’s theme parks and learn how Disney Imagineers designed and built them. The show will also dive into the details of the transportation systems at the theme parks and go behind the scenes on the history of the Disneyland hotel.
Behind the Attraction goes into Disney Parks’ imaginative history using archival and never-before-seen footage and photographs to unveil how the attractions came to be, how they’ve evolved over the years and how Disney blazed trails of technology and imagination.
Not only will Disney learn about the history of attractions but the show will include rare interviews with Walt Disney himself as well as famed imagineers from The Walt Disney Company including Bob Weis, Jeanette Lomboy, Kim Irvine, Scott Trowbridge, Tom Fitzgerald, Scot Drake, Carmen Smith, Joe Rohde and more.
“Getting to work with Disney AND Seven Bucks has not only been the honor of my career, it was also a LOT of fun, which I hope people will feel when they watch the show!” adds Brian Volk-Weiss, executive producer and director.

“Explore how Imagineers filled the Haunted Mansion with 999 happy haunts, how the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror transformed into Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout! (while defying gravity in the process) and why Space Mountain took so long to launch,” Disney said Monday. “From the 1950s to today, from Jungle Cruise to It’s a Small World to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney Parks attractions have amazed millions. And this is the story of how they did it.”
