When most people go to California Adventure, they are thinking about the fun or attractions. While I was thinking about those items as well, as a designer I was thinking about multiple aspects of the experience.
I am a visual designer (graphic design, interior design) and an experience designer (event planning, guest experience). Because of my interest in these areas, it was a fascinating look at how Disney has thought of every detail! Disney is world class in guest experience, and this is because they have covered every minute aspect of what a guest sees, feels, smells, hears and tastes. No stone is too small to leave uncovered.
Here’s how Disney creates an amazing guest experience. (Note: These are my own personal reflections and experiences and not based on research or anything Disney has officially stated.)
