Explore how Disney Imagineers engage in immersive storytelling to bring Disney stories to life—creating magical environments throughout all the Disney theme parks.

What Is Immersive Storytelling?

At Disney, everyone is a storyteller. Immersive storytelling is what happens when Disney Imagineers create the environment of the stories they tell—making the stories magically come alive!

Disney Imagineers begin by using sensory storytelling, which breathes life into Disney stories by featuring elements that appeal to the 5 senses. Then, they employ a wide range of disciplines to express their stories, bringing technology together with other fields—including the design of attractions, culinary arts, live performances, music, sculptures and more. The result is immersive storytelling—a fully realized experience that Guests can be immersed in.

In the Immersive Storytelling Workshop, the secrets of this special creative storytelling practice are revealed. Students will get an inside look at how Disney Imagineers envision environments that provide the backdrop and create the magic for the immersive Disney stories that live across the Disney parks.
