Episode 35: Observing Disney for Small Biz Inspiration | The Merriweather Council Podcast

Small business inspiration at Disney

One of my favorite nerd-pastimes is observing big businesses and percolating on how their tactics and strategies can translate to smaller businesses. It’s just a thing I do. In this episode I am chatting about some observations I made during two trips to Disney World as an adult that I think all small businesses can learn from.

“I am honestly so distracted thinking about how perfect their brand is right now that I almost feel like I’m not having as much fun as I could be, RN” – a thing I actually said whilst in Disney World.

“Oh my god, how are they creating this incredibly seamless experience?!” – another thing I actually said whilst at Disney World.

In this episode:

  • Disney as a child, Disney as an adult
  • A few key things Disney is doing that we can do, too
  • “Imagineers”
  • How Disney gets our attention and draws us in
  • Disney branding – visual and otherwise. OMG
  • Walt Disney is dead but his vision lives on
  • Price points, holla
  • I could talk about this for months

Side note, a book I’m eyeing up: The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World
