Imagineering originally was used by Alcoa in the 1940's where they combined Imagination with Engineering. When WED Enterprises was formed in 1952 by Walt Disney, Imagineering was adopted as well as it described perfectly what WED was doing. To be a Graduate of WED Enterprises is to be like a Graduate of Chouinard Art Institute, where many Imagineers came from and are now Disney Legends.
