16 Lessons You Can Learn From Disney’s 2017 Fireworks Show

Dis­ney has been regard­ed as a com­pa­ny busi­ness­es and orga­ni­za­tions can learn from for years. Their com­mit­ment to excel­lence, peo­ple, and suc­cess pro­vide valu­able lessons to both free-agents and For­tune 500 com­pa­nies. After watch­ing behind-the-scenes footage of their new fire­works show, I could­n’t help but rewatch a few times.

I took my first to Dis­ney World in 2016 and was blown away by the guest-first atti­tude. I espe­cial­ly enjoyed the fire­works and the show “Wish­es.” On Feb­ru­ary 9, 2017, Dis­ney Parks Blog announced its new fire­work show “Hap­pi­ly Ever After” will replace “Wish­es.” As sad as I am to see Wish­es go, I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing the new. The announce­ment video gives us a peak into how the new music was record­ed, and how the Dis­ney team works togeth­er to make mag­ic pos­si­ble.

This post high­lights 16 things I noticed about the mak­ing of Disney’s new fire­work show. I’m writ­ing this because I love Dis­ney. (I’m not paid or claim to own any­thing Dis­ney — just shar­ing some thoughts to encour­age you to make great art!)
