Eddie Soto is with us at is a special kind of guy because he’s a former Walt Disney Imagineer, Eddie. Welcome to the program’s going to have you on the show today. Thank you so much, Stewart. Great to be here.
It does. No fireworks. There are no parades. You got to wear a face mask. You got to keep social distance, and I got to take your temperature you think people will come in droves for that. Well, I know I have my annual passport, and I’m one of the die-hard, so I’m going to be there with a lot of other people just because I miss Disneyland so much, but I do think that the magic it’s not enough to have a beautiful day. You have to have a magical day.
That’s what the job of an Imagineer is to do—so meeting a character face to face. This is what a child lives for. This would have parents saves up for years to go on that vacation. So even though there’s an excitement about reopening and I want to go to Disneyland.
I want to be there at the same time those little magical moments. That’s how you measure the success of a part of somebody who’s planning a vacation a year from now. They may say what is the new normal going to be cold? It’s kind of a moving target with all these regulations.
So what I’m trying to do is work with clients in the Leisure business, in general, to say what will people show up for, and they’ll apply this technology of coveting, and maybe it’s augmented reality.
Who knows, do these things in a way that seamless, and it is appealing for people to watch. Come back, because I think people will forgive. Yes, because we just missed it so much. We love it. So much was a brilliant operation, case closed and they do things better than almost anybody else in this line of business, but tell me what kind of magical moments will be lost because you got to wear a face mask going to keep the distance you going to have a temperature taken magic moments. Do we lose? Yeah.

I kind of feel like it’ll do the dolls of the small world. Say it all that a smile means friendship to everyone when you have cast members who use their smile to take the tears out of a Lost Child space. We have a mask on everyone’s wearing mask; it is a fantasy environment, Stewart. They’re very fragile. You’re paying to escape the real world. Would you bring Hospital practices into a fantasy world? Does your weary of everyone who touched that doorknob? How do I want to reach it? You know all of those things will it endanger that magic and his wife and dizzy so smart
Signs up against the public has to help we have to depend on the guest now for the first time to help sustain that so it’s a long road on Broadway where yeah, you’re working out the Kinks but that new normal the 2.0 of what’s a great experience a lot of Desert Island Resort.
That’s what people are going to win is those who figure that out? And that’s what we’re trying to do now is help clients figure out what that 2.0 should be in the right way and in a sensible way this invisible it wouldn’t you know, I have six children, nine grandchildren. We used to take them to Disney regularly. He was a magic moment that you’re talking about that we relished. I went back all the time.
We’ve got to get past this; we going to get back to a normal will you don’t have to wear a facemask?
We’re done after IV temperature is taken, and I think we will get there, but I think it’s a long time coming to the last word to you, Eddie. You know what Mary Poppins said it best a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
If you use creativity, like Walt Disney putting the monorail out to show, how are Urban Transit can work if it creates that lead to these Solutions, but we got to do it in a way that seemeth for the guests to it to make it a game.
Make it a great time to be a designer to have you on the show, Eddie Soto. Thank you very much for coming would have lights. Thank you very much. Thank you so much.
