“Women of Imagineering” Disney Editions Book Scheduled to Release October 5th, 2021, Available for Preorder

Hi everyone!

Women of Imagineering: 12 Careers, 12 Theme Parks, Countless Stories” was originally scheduled to release last October but was delayed a year with the current release date of October 5th, 2021. It isn’t unusual for some books to be delayed each year, but the pandemic delayed many more until this year. “Women of Imagineering” has been (and still is) available for preorder on Amazon. The book will be 384 pages, there are no dimensions noted but it is listed at 1.74 pounds. This is one of many books I am looking forward to in 2021! Keep reading for more information.

Here is the official information on the Women of Imagineering: 12 Careers, 12 Theme Parks, Countless Stories:

Capturing an era – and preserving the stories they have told their daughters, their mentees, their husbands and their friends – a dozen women Imagineers have written personal stories from their decades designing and building the Disney world-wide empire of theme parks.
Illustrated with the women’s personal drawings and photos in addition to archival Imagineering images, the book represents a broad swath of Imagineering’s creative disciplines during a time of unprecedented expansion. Intertwined with memories of Disney legends are glimpses of what it takes behind the scenes to create a theme park, and the struggles unique to women who were becoming more and more important, visible and powerful in a workplace that was overwhelmingly male.
Each chapter is unique, from a unique Imagineer’s perspective and experience. These women spent their careers telling stories in three dimensions for the public. Now they’ve assembled their stories in print, with the hope that their experiences will continue to entertain and illuminate.
