Portfolio Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering
In his current role at Imagineering, Luc Mayrand initiates ideas from the earliest stage, fostering collaboration and building the teams along the way, then works to sell the projects, to then develop them into real experiences, inside and outside the parks. This approach has been successful for attractions, resorts, and new business development.

– The multi-year expansion of Hong Kong Disneyland featuring a new land the World of Frozen, and the re-invention of the icon of the park: the Castle of Magical dreams, which was launched November 2020;

– The re-invention of Futureworld at Epcot, starting several of the attractions currently under construction.
