Author Marcy Carriker Smothers explores the culinary history of Walt Disney in her book- Eat Like Walt- The Wonderful World of Disney Food.
"My theory [is] that Walt had intended the food to be as immersive and entertaining as the attractions themselves," says Carricker Smothers.
She joins Intersection to explain the technical innovations Disney introduced at the park's restaurants, and how his approach to food helped shape the design of the theme park.
