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.
