Join us for this exclusive event!

Creative Executive Kevin Rafferty is responsible for dreaming up new attraction ideas and creatively leading their story and design and development from concept to completion; or as he calls it, “From the spark to the park.”

Kevin will talk about the ideation, design and development of both Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure and the latest attraction, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, Florida (and soon to come to Disneyland in Anaheim, California as well!).

Kevin joined Walt Disney Imagineering in 1978 to contribute to the development of Epcot. He has since spent over 40 years developing shows and attractions for Disney Parks around the world. As an author, Kevin wrote the text for the popular book, Walt Disney Imagineering, A Behind the Dreams Look at Making the Magic Real. His latest book, Magic Journey: My Fantastical Walt Disney Imagineering Career is a personal memoir that chronicles his remarkable four decades as an Imagineer.

His “fairy tale” story begins in the dish room at Disneyland and ultimately proves that when you dish upon a star your dreams come true!
