“When it comes to your creative ability, don’t worry if your glass is half full or half empty….  just knock it over and use every last drop.” 

~Jason Grandt, The Imagineering Workout

We are so enjoying this new series, we thought we would draw some inspiration from a GREAT book by the Disney Imagineers called The Imagineering Workout.  In the upcoming weeks, we will share some quotes and ideas so we can all flex our wanna-be Imagineer muscles and share our own form of Disney daydreaming/storytelling.

For this week, we are going to consider a piece of furniture: specifically, this lamp of pink baubles! 

So, fellow wanna-be Imagineers, what is this lamp’s mission in the world of Imagineering?  Consider the questions below in thinking about it.

1. Where in the Disney parks (or resort hotels) might this lamp appear?

2. How would the lamp contribute to the story/theming of its home location?

3. If this lamp were to become animated, what would its personality be like?


Let the creativity flow this week, my friends!  Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    1) This sparkly chandelier could go nicely into the bathroom portion of the Finding Nemo Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort.

    2) It really reminds me of the jellyfish scene in ‘Finding Nemo’. It also ties into the outdoor and pool areas of this section of the resort.

    3)If the lamp were to become animated, I would see it become a jellyfish shimmering around the room. It wouldn’t sting, but would just swirl about, as if it were underwater, lighting where ever it goes.

  2. Honestly, the first thing I thought of when I saw this was Ehwa – that tree spirit (?) from Avatar. I think I have James Cameron stuff on the mind from last week’s podcast!!!

    1. I think they could use this lamp as a nod to Charlotte LeBouf in the princess rooms at Port Orleans. (Poor Charlotte, she just needs more love!) Don’t the pearls and pink sparkles make you hear Charlotte’s voice: “I want it! I need it!”

    2. The lamp would fit in with the princess rooms because lots of other Disney girls have left their “things” all over these theme rooms. Why not let Charlotte’s decorating touch be present? Although, I’m doubting if Charlotte would ever willingly part with any personal items.

    3. Considering to whom the lamp belongs, I think the lamp would be spoiled rotten. I’m thinking Charlotte-turned-into-a-lamp ala Beast’s Castle.
