This informative docuseries is sprinkled with humor as it reveals what goes into making each of the featured Disney theme park rides and theme parks so popular through time. Anecdote-filled interviews draw viewers in and Disney fans rejoice as we finally get a peek beyond the magic of Disney Parks and discover what's actually Behind the Attraction -- the history, vision, determination, and collaborative work that played a big role in creating each beloved attraction. The series also offers insight into who Walt Disney was as a visionary and how the company continues to appeal to newer generations while still maintaining his original vision.

STEAM isn't specifically mentioned but it's evident that Disney Imagineers rely on science, technology, engineering, art, and math to make the magic come alive. Viewers will enjoy learning more about their favorite attractions, and the series' playful tone makes it fun and compelling to watch for Disney fans of all ages. The lightheartedness and humor used to explain the conception and history behind each attraction will likely make it easier for kids to watch, as parents may be drawn in by Disney nostalgia.
