Why Buy This Disney App?
There are dozens of Disney apps available on the market. Why buy this app?
This app is unlike anything else. Where most are about touring the Disney parks, or how long the lines are, or where you can find a hidden Mickey, this one is VERY different. It is NOT an app for planning a trip to Disney.
Instead, it's an amazing journey into the heart and soul of the magic behind the business of creating these magnificent parks. You will see leadership examples of how this place came to be. You'll learn ways in which they build and engage their Cast Members (employees), And you'll discover how they create a great customer experience for their guests. Moreover, you'll find ways you can bring these same kind of ideas back to your business.
Written by J. Jeff Kober, a former Disney Institute leader, you will see things guests never see. You'll hear details seldom shared. And you'll be inspired by ideas presented. Whether you're in the park going from ride to ride with this app in hand, or whether you're sitting back on your sofa with an iPad examining at the hundreds of photos and dozens of stories that are shared, this app promises you that the concepts, ideas, and stories shared from the heritage and themes of the park will come alive and will provide new ideas for your life and business. It's absolutely worth the time and money, and may be the best app you ever invested in.

Experience Epcot in a way that improves your business and personal life
Once again, Jeff Kober and Performance Journey’s has brought a new perspective on a Disney theme park. Epcot is my favorite Disney park, and the Disney at Work: Epcot app gives me a fresh perspective on a park I have visited many times. The app is very well organized into sections that correspond to the physical areas of Epcot, making it easy to visualize yourself moving from pavilion to pavilion, and experiencing each attraction. But it is the behind the scenes information about how those attractions work, and the people that help create them and the processes that run them, that make this app so fantastic. Jeff does a great job of once again marrying the Disney theme park experience with valuable lessons that anyone can apply to their own professional and personal lives.
