Leslie Iwerks Shares Inside Look at ‘The Imagineering Story’ with the Disney Parks Blog

One of my (Jason) favorite shows on Disney+ when it premiered on November 12, 2019 was 'The Imagineering Story,' created and directed by Leslie Iwerks. Originally planned as a documentary back in 2013, it was instead turned into a 6-part documentary for Disney+.

From the Disney Parks Blog - "In November 2019, The Imagineering Story, a six-part docuseries, premiered on Disney+. To create her ambitious documentary series, acclaimed filmmaker Leslie Iwerks, granddaughter of the award-winning Disney animator and Disney Legend Ub Iwerks and the daughter of celebrated Disney Legend Don Iwerks, was granted unprecedented access to archival documents, firsthand insights, and never-before-shared Imagineering projects. Now, Leslie collects some of the most astonishing insider stories and expands on details that did not make it into the series. Disney Publishing was afforded the privilege of discussing her experiences with the project!"

Today in Disney History (November 23, 1963)


A day after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, Disneyland closed its gates in observance of the National Day of Mourning. The newly sworn in President, Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed that the day of Kennedy’s funeral, Monday, November 25, 1963 would be a National Day of Mourning. During this time Disneyland was already closed on Mondays and Tuesdays so I’m assuming they honored the fallen President on Saturday instead. This was the first unexpected or unplanned closure in the history of Disneyland. 

Walt Quote Wednesday (November 23, 2022)

From the “Walter in Wonderland” article by Arthur Miller in the Los Angeles Times on December 4, 1938.

“When I’m no longer around, I want it to go on growing.”

Walt Quote Wednesday (November 2, 2022)

"But now, looking back, I have satisfaction, even pleasure, in tracing the effects those newspaper-delivery days had on my mature life. Now I can appreciate the self-reliance, self-discipline, and self wisdom gained from those responsibilities. The sense of responsibility - yes, this I believe is the most valuable thing a boy can carry along into later life from his first job."

In 1911, the Disney family moved to Kansas City, Missouri where Roy and Walt delivered Kansas City Star newspapers for their fathers distributorship. Roy and Walt would wake up at 3:30 a.m, seven days a week to deliver newspapers before heading to grammar school. The boys weren't paid and Walt often said he had nightmares about walking up to his neck in snow while delivering the newspapers.
