As a former Imagineer, I helped create the magic for some of the most beloved attractions throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including show concepts for such attractions as The Great Movie Ride, the Jungle Cruise, and EPCOT’s World Showcase. I also worked on the grand openings of many classic Disney attractions and resorts, including Star Tours, Splash Mountain, Pleasure Island, and the (then) Disney-MGM Studios! I bring my unique experience and knowledge, as well as rare insights, that can only come from the creative genius of a Walt Disney Imagineer!

Where you'll be

I often recommend one of the more impressive restaurants in Disney Springs-Morimoto. However, if Asian Fusion isn't your thing, PLEASE PICK WHEREVER YOU WANT TO GO--Even a park or resort restaurant! (Coral Reef? Le Cellier Steakhouse? Casey's Corner? Be Our Guest? California Grill? Satu’li Canteen? Etc...) Wherever we dine, my unique history, insight, and expertise brings a special understanding and perspective that only a former Imagineer can!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 5 reviews.

Brian was very interesting and had great stories about his time as an Imagineer. He also had great advice to share with my would-be Imagineers. The evening flew by. I would definitely recommend.

We got this experience for my son on his 20th birthday. He wanted to be an Imagineer when he was younger and is now in school for computer engineering. He said that Brian was quite inspirational and has solidified what he want to do in the future! I can't believe we were so lucky that someone would even offer such an incredible experience! Brian was very thoughtful and communicated with ease, including recommendations on where to eat and what to check out!
