“Attractions are like icebergs, you only see what’s on the surface…”

On this very special bonus episode of Beyond the Mouse, Craig takes you Behind the Attraction. Recently, Beyond the Mouse was invited, as members of the media, to cover the new show coming to Disney+ on July 21. Craig talks about the press junket that included show creator and Director Brian Volk-Weiss and four Imagineers from the Walt Disney Company. Also, Craig gives insights into some of the episodes he took an early peek at prior to their release.

“Peek beyond the magic of Disney Parks to discover what's Behind the Attraction! From Executive Producers Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia and Brian Volk-Weiss, 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. 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.”
