One Day At Disney Book Review


“One Day At Disney” shows readers what it’s like to work at Disney.

In honor of the release of the hour-long “One Day At Disney” documentary on Disney+ today, it seems only fitting to review the tie-in hardcover coffee table book of the same name today. Written by Bruce C. Steele, the book (which was also released today) followed Disney employees across the globe in numerous job positions on one day earlier in 2019. The jobs aren’t just at Walt Disney Studios either. The book guides readers through numerous realms including TV series, ESPN, Radio Disney, Broadway shows, Cruise Line, publishing outlets, and, of course, Disney Parks positions that include everything from animal keepers to Imagineers. Each person spotlighted has their own bio piece which includes their name, hometown, job title, favorite Disney movie or attraction, and who they are and what their job entails. Note: The book also contains a foreword by current Disney CEO Bob Iger.

For those that treasure Disney or those who have always wondered what it would be like to work for the beloved company, “One Day At Disney” offers a glimpse at merely some of the people who are fortunate enough to do so. Complete with glossy pictures (and in some cases two-page spreads), readers can scope out a wide variety of fascinating, insightful, and possibly aspirational careers from Brie Larson (star of “Captain Marvel), Disney Cruise Line Captain Fabian Dib, “The Lion King” musical actress Zamavuso Magudulela, Jon Favreau and Bryce Dallas Howard working on “The Mandalorian” (I had to shout-out that gem of a show), Pixar sculptor Jerome Ranft, and so many more. I could go on and on, but it’s best to just experience the book on your own.

As I mentioned above this is a tie-in book release to what is essentially a multi-media project. The “One Day At Disney” documentary film and this book are out today while the shorts begin a weekly release schedule this coming Friday. For those that are invested in following all of this, it will no doubt be compelling to learn, read and see more about the individuals and their day-to-day duties.
