Join LDI for two-days of in-depth technical theme park training at Disneyland® Park and Disney California Adventure® Park in Anaheim, and go behind the scenes to learn how Disney magic is made! This training is for those interested in how all the complex design and technology elements come together in the challenging theme park environment, where equipment is tested to the max for glitch-free operation. See the shows and attractions, do backstage tours, and attend comprehensive, detailed panel discussions that examine all aspects of the process with the designers and technicians who turn pixie dust into some of the world's most technically advanced theme park innovation. These two technology-packed 14-hour days go beyond our usual Backstage Orlando tours, with more in-depth technical discussions, from storyboards to design solutions.
Both days include continental breakfast, lunch, and dinner: 7am through 9pm, with the following attractions among those on the agenda*:
