It all comes down overnight

IllumiNations’ centerpiece, the revolving globe, hours before the 9:00 PM showtime. Photo: taken from our dinner table last night.

It all comes down overnight.

The Disney structure, processes, and reputation is legendary.

The pressure to uphold the Disney Way ebbs and flows every decade.

IllumiNations will “come down” (be removed) overnight.

Like Magic.

It was an incredible 20-year run.

Being able to change my evening plans on a dime yesterday to dine at Epcot and watch the final show is not lost on me.

i often pinch myself and ask, “Is this really happening?”

Disney Institute headquarters in Celebration, Florida

Met a Disney and Disney Institute colleague at Panera across the street from our former office building. DI is still there and doing well without us. Photo: from my parking space at Panera.

Disney Institute (DI) headquarters in Celebration, Florida.

Son, you remember being there a couple times as a child, when i needed to pick something up (or drop off something) on the weekend.

i was one of the first to work remotely from home.

DI does just fine without Bob and me.

We are doing exceptionally well since leaving DI.

Son, life has a funny way of living up to the theory that risk and reward are decently proportional.

Not aiming for a number.

Quality over quantity today.

Few will believe it

Few will believe it.

What?

That Disney creativity doesn’t just fall from the sky.

Technology is simply a delivery method.

The idea still has to come from human creativity.

If your organization is not robustly creative before technology, odds are great that you won’t be after technology either.

It’s like getting a wonderful gym membership and new athletic shoes…if you aren’t motivated to transform, you’ll live the same inactive life you led before.

Son, understand the DNA of “why” and your what and how will take care of themselves.

You know the line.

After a sports superstar wins the championship, Disney marketing captures the moment when the star athlete is asked, “Now that you’ve won the Super Bowl, what are you going to do next?”

Yesterday felt like that.”Now that you’ve delivered your first TED Talk, what are you going to do next?”

And the very next day, you see these people at Walt Disney World.
