Walt Disney Imagineering hyper attention to detail creating Disney World Resort Hotels has created some very interesting backstories
A few weeks ago, The Gold Key Adventurers Society talked a little about the hyper attention to detail employed by Walt Disney Imagineering when they’re planning every bit of the parks and resorts. This often results in elaborate backstories that most guests aren’t even aware of, but help to create a more richly detailed and themed environment. This week, they’d like to share the backstory of four Walt Disney World resort hotels, and see if knowing these stories adds anything at all to your impressions and experience of the hotel.
