  • [Question] Documentary Covering Disneyland Leadership

    Hi all,

    The other night my girlfriend and I sat down and watched Waking Sleeping Beauty, a fantastic documentary on the resurgence of Disney Animation in the 1990s. One of the biggest topics covered was the power struggle between Michael Eisner, Jeffery Katzenberg, and Roy Disney Jr. It was a fascinating look behind the magic at the time.

    This got me wondering, are there any other documentaries worth watching about Disneyland's leadership at the time? I'd love to know more about the philosophy changes brought in by Eisner, Wells, et al.

    Any suggestions, films or books, would be greatly appreciated!

        Read Micheal Eisners book about how is God of everything with a Midas Touch.

        I think the name is "Work in Progress".

            How much of it is about Disneyland?
            Disneyland is not the film division or the TV division.
            It is less than half of the parks division.

            Oh, I see you are looking for information about Disneyland at the time.
            hmm...
            Here is an interesting website that has stuff that happened to Disney Company year by year.

            This is when the big guns started accumulating shares.

            Takes about 6 months for Eisner to get the job.
            Looking for "Disneyland opened all week."
            Or, "xxx named Disneyland president or head of parks."

              I second this. Wordy, but lots of great insight.

              Anybody have additional recommendations for insider information about the Studios? With all the fighting between Eisner, Katzenberg, and Howard Ashman, Im amazed anything was accomplished. Yet, somehow they (or somebody else?) saved Disney.
