I miss the days when I lived closer to Disneyland. It was always a place of comfort and fun. I can’t even count the number of times that I have been, but I can tell you I have yet to go on every ride.
Disney+ is giving us all a behind the scenes look at all of their attractions in a special entitled, Behind the Attraction. The series is coming from Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia who will executive produce through their Seven Bucks Productions banner. The special will be narrated by Paget Brewster.
To celebrate the July 30 release of the Disney feature film “Jungle Cruise,” inspired by the Disney Parks attraction which debuted in 1955 with the opening of Disneyland® park, Disney+ will premiere all episodes of its newest original series “Behind the Attraction” on Friday, July 16.
