50 years ago, Walt Disney utterly transformed the concept of outdoor entertainment venues. Using his innate talent for combining disparate skills and personalities, he assembled a creative team that blended imagination with engineering and called them 'Imagineers'. Kurtti introduces a core group of the originators of Disneyland and the other Disney parks. He explores their individual relationships with Walt and each other, their creative breakthroughs and failure, their rivalries and professional politics. Lavishly illustrated with rare never-before-seen photos.
Jeff Kurtti is a leading authority on The Walt Disney Company and its history. He has been a guest speaker and moderator at the Official Disneyana Convention and an artist-in-residence at the Disney Institute.
