Disneyland Kills Its Annual Pass Program to Lure in Tourists
"The happiest place on earth shared a bit of sad news for disneyland devotees. Anyway if you have an annual pass to the park or ever wanted to buy one well. You're out of luck in early. January disneyland abruptly announced that its annual pass program was over well. The company said it was sunsetting annual passes which is so disney right. The program let guests pay anywhere from around four hundred fourteen hundred a year for access to both disneyland and nearby disney california adventure park. Both parks in southern california have been closed since last march because of the corona virus pandemic so folks eagerly waiting for the park to reopen. And the chance to buy an annual pass for next year. We're doubly sorry disney said anyone who's passes extended beyond the shutdown date would be automatically refunded in pass holders will get discounts on food and merchandise from disney's retail outfits. Through the end of february. Now disneyland doesn't publicly release sales numbers but it's believed that they sell around one of those passes a year that means. There are a lot of disappointed disney fans out there wondering why well it all comes down to the numbers and money. Of course both disneyland and california adventure around twenty eight million visitors a year according to estimates spine engineering firm. That's a whole lot of foot traffic on main street. Usa and that traffic is good. News for disney. If those millions of visitors are spending a lot on food and souvenirs while they're at the park and people who spend the most in the park. Well they tend to be tourists from out of town which visitors spend less money in the park residents of southern california who also make up the bulk of annual pass holders according to the la times. So while you'd think that selling a million annual passes might be profitable for disney the program is actually clogging the park with people who are spending less on food and stuffed animals hence the annual pass programme has gone the way of mu fossa. Sorry that was that meanwhile at disney world in orlando the annual pass program was closed to new buyers last summer. Theme park experts. Say it's for the same reason. The park is crowded with folks who live nearby and spend less in the parks. But anyone who already has a pass in hand for this year can still use it. Because disney world is currently open disney's move has made another theme park come out and assure visitors that won't be axing its annual pass programme universal studios with parks in. You guessed it orlando in southern california after disney made their announcement universal studios hollywood tweeted. Hey pass members we heart you. That may have been a good marketing. Move on their part but for diehard disney fans and there are a lot of you out there universal studios just can't replace that disney experience disney executives say they will be rolling out alternatives to the annual pass. Soon in the meantime visitors will have to settle regular old day passes

"The Omni mover system has been used in several rides at Disney though according to Bob Gurr not all the rides that are in constant motion are technically Omni mover rides. For example, Gir- says that the ride system of spaceship earth is not an Omni mover despite the fact that on casual glance, it certainly looks like one and in fact, a lot of sources referred to it as an Omni mover ride it's the type of ride that is in constant motion. There's a moving sidewalk for you to get on and get off the ride. I. Don't know what it is specifically that sets it apart but has said quote, it was a one of a kind conveyor totally unlike and sharing no parts with an Omni mover end quote and he also said he opposed the ride system so much during the development cycle, the supervisors moved him to another ride rather than have to deal with them anymore but I don't know what the. Actual differences are anyway rather than try and Suss out how and why spaceship Earth is different. I figure I would talk about a totally separate ride system that was pioneered over at Disneyland that is the enhanced motion vehicle or EMV. This system is the one that powers rides like Indiana Jones adventure, the temple of the forbidden eye in Disneyland. There's dinosaur in Disney's animal kingdom, and there's the crystal skull ride at Tokyo Disneyland. These rides have passengers get aboard a vehicle that looks a lot like a jeep although it's a jeep that can seat twelve people in three rows I. Understand that if you were to ride with James Williams of funhouse fame, you'd best allow him to be in the driver's seat because he takes that extremely seriously passengers experienced a wild ride as the vehicle is moving along rugged terrain. Taking real sharp turns and pitching, and rumbling and dipping like crazy all the while the actual ride vehicle is traveling along a nice flat simple surface. Now, the secret here is that you can think of the ride vehicle as having three distinct parts. The part that you're sitting in the passenger part is called the motion base, and this is the bit that gets pitched around during the ride in it simulates a much more dramatic scenario than what is actually happening. Then you've got the ride vehicle itself, which consists of the hydraulics and the pump and the computer control systems the. The wheels, essentially all the stuff to make the actual motions to propel the vehicle. The third part is out of sight it's beneath the floor of the traction. Again, a slot in the floor that part of the right extends down into and this third part are, will they called the bogies sometimes, people would call them trucks. It really depends on where you're bogies tends to be British North America people often use the word truck to describe this but. It's to describe a structure that typically has wheels and axles attached through bearings and intended for use on rail systems. So the base of railroad car, the wheels that that whole structure, the holds the wheel and axle that's a bogey none. The case of the rides that I mentioned the tracks and bogies are again below the surface of the floor. So you can't see them as you ride the ride, the ride vehicle connects to the bogies via posts that extend up through that slot on the floor that's not too different from..

"But Disney would change that dramatically and that brings us back to the dark rides of Disney land. There were several of those that I mentioned Snow White was one mister toad Peter Pan, and if you've ever been on Peter Pans flight at Walt Disney World in Orlando? Ride is on a system that is in continuous motion and I'll be covering that kind of system later on this episode. But the Disneyland version was the type of pride that actually comes to a complete stop at the end of a ride cycle, and that allows the the people who are writing it to get off and new passengers to get onto the right right. Operators would actually control this. They would hit a button to send a a vehicle on its way and otherwise they would. Hold it until people were safely secured inside the vehicle. One of the cool things about the Peter Pan ride was that unlike the others on this list, it's actually suspended track ride. So the track is suspended above the passengers the vehicle isn't sitting on a track it's being it's hanging from a track. So the the writers cars, those are pirate ship themed in the Peter. Pan Ride are hanging beneath the suspended track that allowed the rides, designers or imagine ears as Disney calls them imaginative engineers. To create sections where the car appears to soar overseas like the city of London or never never land the original Disneyland attraction had nine of these ships on the track during a day at a tenth one in reserve in case something went wrong. Each of those ships was made of fiberglass and weighed about two hundred and fifty pounds or around one hundred, thirteen kilograms and they were able to. Carry you know two or maybe three people. The people were kind of smallish and tenth vehicle like I said would stand by in case one needed to be removed from the right. At any given point there was a company called Cleveland Tram. Rail. That actually built the track and the the drive devices for the ride vehicles, and it's interesting because this was a company that wasn't known for making. Amusement Park Rides, they built out systems for overhead cranes cranes that would transport heavy materials above industrial sites and these cranes would go on trolleys along tracks. And they were using a similar system for these these rides on Peter Pans flight. So the motorized trolley would sit on a girder rail and the trolley had an electric motor that had one whole horse power to it..

"Hey there in welcome to tech stuff I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland I'm an executive producer with iheartradio in love all things tech. And those of you who know a little bit about me know that I'm a big fan of Disney, theme parks and theme parks in general I'm a roller coaster fiend for example now don't get me wrong. I am not claiming to be the biggest fan of Disney theme parks on our network because I sometimes think that Holly Frye actually lives at a Disney theme park. I mean I once went to epcot down at Walt. Disneyworld. And I ran into holly and I didn't even know she was in Florida at the time I. Mean I was there completely independently and just ran into her and the world showcase so While I won't take first prize for the biggest theme park fan over at Iheartradio I think can at least hold my own anyway, my wife and I had plans to visit the Disney parks this year but we've decided to hold off due to covid nineteen. Now, the parks have reopened as I'm sure some of you know and there are a lot of measures in place that are intended to keep visitors cast safe cast by the way is the word. That Disney uses for employees as the company treats the theme parks like they are stages, and every employee is in part a performer on that stage. Now, all that being said, personally I worry about opening something as big as a theme park during a pandemic, even with limits on how many people can come into a park per day and masks mandates and temperature checks and everything else I particularly feel a lot of compassion for the cast who run a higher. Risk of catching something because they could potentially encounter thousands of people every day that they are at work. So my wife and I have put our Disney plans on hold for the time being but I figured I can take the opportunity to talk a bit about how some of the ride systems work. So my wife and I have put our Disney plans on hold but I figured I could take the opportunity to talk a bit about how some of. The ride systems work.

So there will be some overlap here I'll talk about pepper's ghost again, just briefly, but mostly I want to talk about some interesting ride systems associated with Disney though some of them originated elsewhere now when Disneyland..

I found that I was just like every time I was tired or feeling upset. Got On the ride and all of a sudden adrenaline adrenaline would pump. Through my veins. I would feel high. Like EUPHORIA. Literal Ecstasy then. I was hired to crash. And the next thing you know we're on this like Pooh bear ride. That's like visual and like trippy. And I'm like Oh my God. This is kind of like stimulating. My brain than it was likely original Internet. Yeah I was just like I honestly original talk. I didn't think it was gonna be as visually and like technologically amazing as it was the Indiana Jones. Ride. There's a moment where you're in the middle of it like on a track on these. We're in a truck sort of and it's so big and it's like built literally into the ground that you're flying and you can see like three other trucks honestly like fifty meters away in a different part of the ride like zooming and there's like fireballs and I was like this is absolutely amazing like I literally just like this is crazy and I can't believe that humans like made this and I just I felt like ecstasy even know prior to this day even being in that line I was like this place is so gross. Like literally smells where you don't why here's why you think it's because because what? I what I'M GERMS. I think of like. Oh you mean literally gross standing in line in the ground like in this sort of mildew e like feeling in the air why have I paid so much money? I never felt that there was only the one ride. We went on a submarine and it was actually disgusting and it was right truly awful but what I was going to say is I get that. It's like enforcing these ideals that can make you happy. But I think it can. It's like going to a concert. I think like you pay for something and you get an experience you pay to go to movies. You get an experience and I think that's part of what it is. I agree that it probably is overwhelming and exhausting. And you probably end up spending so much money because the food. They're so expensive so expensive. There's so many people but you are participating because it is meant to be fun and when you see those rides sometimes you are like. This is unbelievable that this exists and I not that long ago for the first time I ever went to Harry Potter world and felt the same thing because those rights were in new and I was like. I can't even imagine that this was going to be. This is so I know I was. I was over the the. That's all I mean sled ride. I was sitting at the front and it does. These like turns over a mountain. I truly thought I was GONNA fly off. I have never screened the Yeti that POPs up. That's real that's real. And then the gag on the Indiana Jones where it looks like the boulders can you? I was screaming out of pure terror like I knew I was on a ride. I'm thirty years old on humor streaming like laughing so because I thought it was literally GonNa fly off of a cliff also thought how in the hell do kids handle this because I was horribly agree like even a little peaky bird thing that was like literally for Children. I was like wow. Three kids ran out crying because it was like electronic birds singing to you and they were horrified honestly. It was very scary. It was very scary but there are. There are limits you have to be certain high and there's only law but if your child but there's a lot of kids crying who've given up and they have to get taken out it's really fun. Well we didn't even go to the kids area. There's a whole other park that is like the top of the park reading. Go do because it's four children like there's different rides. That are for real young kids and there are so many hilarious. Disney to point at things during the rides like little like Easter eggs. And everyone's posing for the photo like we have genuine screams. But everyone's kind of like doing like little hander. Winking I'm like how many times do you around there. Okay so to wrap it up. What's your verdict? Your overall experience with Disneyland. How did you feel definitely exceeded my expectations dot? They're line is slow and I'm like Oh my God needed minding your page and not. I know critical person. I know that it's like so like about shopping. And spending money in those things like it just like I am not even a huge fan of Disney. So I definitely exceeded my expectations. But I did feel really sick. I did like you were sick just sick just from like the rides and just from like of people and like the exhaustion really set in. I was so impressed with how every time I felt. I needed to get the hell out of here or something happened. That made me thrill up. So yeah I am like weirdly Fascinated anime his. Are you a converted Disney gay? No definitely not only because I don't even like I felt so bad I've gone rides and done even this movie like I haven't even looked at Indiana. Jones basically have not seen most star wars lacking the base but the pure thrill that was designed for me as a human. I was very impressed with you honestly to me I. My brain shuts out the bad stuff. And just like. I know there's probably problems that go much deeper than this podcast. I'm I'm I'm glad you touched on the employees and things are I. Don't know what other exploitations like when doing this. I was like we need to do one. Disney not Disneyland to talk about it as as a day as a thing that we did. I had a lot of fun. I was happy like the whole time. I was absolutely exhausted at night and I was like my feet feel like they're blading. I haven't slept like like that solid marathon and I. I have a really strong affinity for feeling like Childhood Nostalgia I guess. Obviously everyone does and unity as well. Because that's part of my childhood even for me like Christmas brings up to me like I love being around the things that remind me of like believing in magic and believing that the world is amazing. Place and when you're little those rides actually seem fully real to you. You don't see them as fake in any way so. I just it brings me back to that and I had a lot of fun and I am lobby. Went and I don't know I don't know that I like my brain doesn't want to criticize it. Yeah okay interesting. We're going to do another one about Disney though like. Wait not criticize it enough. Because I'm like political ideologies of it's a small world I'm GONNA go get. This is what I'm saying. I all right well. Thank you for listening if you WANNA talk about Disneyland with. Sr Disneyworld Hashtag aside pod Guy and we are doing this on new makes. We're doing this in. Yeah we're on the road. A little mobile. This is on the road. Setup might sound a little more than normal talk to you next week. Maybe about love is blind. Should we might finish us..

"At Disney filming. My research is not based on a study but it is based on the fact that Disney World Disneyland is in Florida and basically doesn't have mosquitoes even though it's in the middle of a swamp. Oh my oh my knees crazy because they basically control. They don't want their customers and have to deal with not only mosquito bites but also disease being transmitted so they have found a way and I had heard this online that they control for their mosquito population in a really intense way so I thought I need to research this and they bring this to the world like why. That's why I've been thinking I'll tell you about it but I I wanted to throw a fact at you because we were just at Disneyland and for your information not that we work in square miles but it is zero point seven five square miles big. Okay okay it's include a mile venture because it does that include both parks and a couple of the resorts that are on the outskirts of that will stab and now knowing that like so. Let's round up to one square mile. Have you ever been to Disneyworld Greg? No but you're looking at me so intensely I'm like no no no I have. I have on panicking. I went as a kid so but I don't really have that much context but so I've only been to Disneyland now as an adult so but I kind of remember Disneyworld and I know like the castles lot bigger. I'm just like how big Disneyworld is. Oh my God okay. I assume it's bigger because everything's bigger in Florida I'm GonNa say to square miles. Wait no just tell me. Believe is forty three square miles. What is it that in saint because it's four parks so there's epcot? I forgot the other ones right now. It is twice the size of Manhattan. Which is the size of San Francisco? Disneyworld isn't but also it includes their resorts and I think there's a lot more resorts Disney'll but this four isn't that going to blow your mind. Fifty eight fifty eight thousand eight thousand employed there like that makes more sense because it only growing and that was in two thousand seven way more now. Isn't that wild anyway? I just WanNa start there with you. We went to the dinky dink literally. I was like we spent. It took us a whole data. Go through just Disneyland. We didn't even go to Calvin Austin. Yeah I online. It was like you cannot do Disneyworld within. You need like three to five days to even do it justice. Oh my gosh okay. That makes people stay at a for like a week off. That's great this is relevant. Because that's how much land. They control over right so they have mosquitoes. They're in a swamp basically and they need to figure out how to manage mosquitoes over the size of San Francisco. I I need to know what they do what they do okay so it nothing is so. It's not that they have any available technology that no one else does but obviously it really emphasize that it's in their interest because of diseases so there's obviously I think it's mostly people trying to make the happiest place on her. Well they don't they don't want somebody getting they don't want somebody getting like. West Nile virus at Disney. Of course. But there's not that much I think there is. I think there's obviously not like Malaria in certain diseases that are really known to be carried by mosquitoes. But that is what was brought up. But you're right. It's probably also just customer satisfaction. There's there's one area they say they kind of. Because it's an outdoor area disneyworld where people are encouraged like be around horses and stuff so they can't spray things in that areas much that there are more mosquito spray. Literally type okay. So basically they have three main things. I do a couple extras that are even caller number. One they use insecticides okay not that surprising place on Earth. They are constantly spraying insecticides. But I'll get to touch on that more later because they don't spread over the whole park number two. They use something called growth regulator which reduces the lifespan of mosquitoes. And then number three they use natural predators so they have certain animals and things like that. Why live at Disney? That are Predator everywhere. I don't really know exactly what they use But this is the craziest thing so the the most intense part is that they have a really amazing surveillance program to understand where the mosquitoes are where they're concentrated. Because over the size of two men. Manhattan's they can't just like spray. Everything and they want to be efficient and it costs a lot of money so they basically have sixty traps across the park that release Co two which is why mosquitoes are attracted to humans or one of the reasons. Yeah so mosquitoes get continent. They take that they freeze them and then they studied them to figure out what my God they figure. Out LIKE. What species they are the concentration. How old they are all these variables and figure out what parts of the park have higher numbers or lower numbers And then they can figure out where the parks need attention so based off of those stats they go round figure out how much new spray. But then there's this other crazy part. They have chickens that are called. Sentinel chickens that they allow in certain areas of the parks and because chickens for example can catch west now but do not get sick from it. It allows them. They checked the chickens blood regularly in different areas. And because you can't fly they could check other birds but chickens can't leave their coops so they know if West House in this chicken's blood it's in this area and we need to have a more serious intervention in this area. Oh my God I wish this type of energy could go into like figuring issues for the world series a micah. That's that's seems like a dream like you saying that information to me. I'm like that's insane. I know they spray. Twice a day morning at sunrise and sunset they do not want to cast members to be seen doing sprang. Will I think it Might Happen Sunrise? So when no one's there and then they probably alternate different areas sunset. Because that's going to be people are in the park Yeah I just thought. Oh part of their business model to be sure that people are having a great experience and so they have to control mosquito. Weirdest part about Disneyland like I found it like obviously very fun. That's the whole design of it. This is exactly where I knew your name ago. The second we arrived I was like okay. Good is always looking for the faults and things I like to but I was like for example definitely a lot of screaming children at about three to four PM. I'm like it doesn't matter how amazing this place is. These kids are targeted. They're exhausted the parents the two candidates if you don't zip it it was. Everyone was so upset by four PM that I was like okay. This is like off. It doesn't matter. How many like going around like what is happening like these kids are. These parents are exhausted. This is the happiest place on Earth. Like at a certain point. Your brain and your hormones kick in your exhausted but like it really was a weird feeling because I I started to feel really sick. Like they'll rides were amazing and I was really wanting to go on them but like I did feel sick. I was so exhausted but I couldn't get like fully as upset or tired as I would be at home because there was something around the corner that like adrenaline is a lot. Yeah you're constantly being stimulated. I think I can relate to that. There's the two sides me that's like you know not. I'm not trying to be like oh capitalism. There's this idea that Disney tells us that you should be wanting all these things like going to Disney is how you show your kid. You love them and there's all these ideals that are kind of messed up in some ways that it's the idea that you must spend money and must invest in the so to be into be a good parent so that side. Obviously you see it and you're like there are people here who maybe don't want to be here. I don't know but then there is like but it actually can be really enjoyable. It is magical to see some of these things. Kids Watch movies with their favorite characters and get busy like toy story. Walking down the street get to go on the rides and experience literal. What feels like literal magic as a Kid. And so there's something like you said. The employees are creating his magical environment because they want to share that experience that they probably had when they were younger. So there is that side that I yeah. It's just a dichotomy for me where I'm stuck between those two feelings. In the moment of Mike I actually think this is so cute and so fun lines different so I don't think it's cute or like even like I have less of a nostalgic sort of feeling towards it again. I didn't watch any Disney movies and I personally think like I hope to raise a kid where like it doesn't rely on like movies and Disney to like be told that's what joy is but that's not the only thing business. I'll let you keep going. Yeah I'm not saying this as I'm saying this is like an annoying person. Who has these like annoying opinions? I'm not saying this is the opinion everyone child opinion but one thing that I did notice was that I am a critical person and I can't help but my brain thinks things and I was so surprised how well they were at being literally creating visual gags like honestly huge like visual mountains that are like kind of placed in ways that when you look one way it literally looks like there's a huge beautiful guy you're holding physiology is kind of just so why do you think that's a bad thing or no. I'm saying what like as opposed to like looking around at all these key like when I looked at the kids the parents I thought why would you ever do like I? Literally like the thousand people crammed gone. And I'm like I know however much. My kid liked cars. I know he's going to be exhausted or she's going to be exhausted that this is or they're going to be. This is not worth it like every single turn. I thought I would never bring my kids here but personally no. I'm trying to say that like the IT honestly was designed in away for me as an adult. At least I was so surprised how I every time I thought I was getting tired. I got a ride again. We did a fast pass capitalism again. We're no it's fine. Oh Yeah but you have to still like log into you. Don't just get to go on. Every facet is so you have to be smart. I'm saying we paid extra. Get Blind. Whose okay okay. Dot is not an exaggeration. I think it was I..

"Don't get it in the park like we were close to not being in the park it. Yeah because people now way outside of the park because they need to get in in time get scanned and then you're once or even your racing. Everyone who has a cell phone trying to refresh and get it like tickets on ticketmaster. Everyone's standing around opening their phones. Everyone's on their phones and it's like a clock on the dot and everyone starts tapping their phones win here. It's like yeah and everyone. Hush takes over the cow and then all of a sudden someone starts screaming and pure joy really frustrated with having like we have got in boarding group one thirty seven. We're like what does that mean in there like it usually goes from boarding group. One to eighty is guaranteed. The right people are losing their minds around. People have been trying for seven days to get onto this ride by being there. Eighty eight Oh to. Everyone knows whether they're on this ride or at least in boarding group that would probably go versus one that probably will not be reached. Yes because another thing. Is this right because it's so new. Breaks down a lot so some days. It won't get onto as high number of a boarding which is exactly what the story is about which is about around two in the afternoon the boarding groups which were checking audit keeper freshman going on thirty seven spoiler. It gets nowhere nearly everyday. Since I've been checking my phone ever got that I. Why did I know and I'm going to check it right now. So it stopped the number. Stop going up and we realize and you start hearing likes like there's gossip going around the different lineup. And they say that the rise of the resist. What is it the rise of the what? It's at one thirty six right now. No Day they still have over an hour left. If we went today we would have got. Oh my so our friend who was totally here. Do not tell her that happened okay. I'm sorry oh she every day it's only made it up to like eighty so we were. We were never close but days today. Tuesday on Okay. So if you are in group thirty seven ever don't give up. Health is another name of doesn't say the new hope and new. How okay so. This ride is now not working at two. Pm It's dead heat of the day and we're like let's just go check out star Wars Land Beautiful interesting fascinating insane we go. Everyone is like sitting outside not with star wars which is really cool. And then the one section near the Ri- We went to and everyone is like in the heat like truly look like they're crying because the ride does not work and they have true. They were the ones waiting all morning. They've been waiting for hours and they would have been like group forty five and being called and then the ride broke down and told them they were Garin. You've kind of got on. And they would go up to the employees who are dressed as an Israeli drops. I do not know stars who are addressed as Good Guy Star. They were like the rebels and they're going so since I have come all the way from across the world I am from Europe to go on this ride. And you're telling me it's broken and they're literally having seduce you might WanNa talk to Kylo Ren and they're like no. I don't want to talk to and they're literally like it's the what's the name of the bad Guy Force One or did they call the. What is the name of their crew? I forgot right now. I know what order or maybe you need to take it up with the new order. Everyone's like no honestly like I know you work at Disney. But I really need to know actual information. And they wouldn't drop like or it was. They had to keep that facade of their. Yes actor on. I'm really sorry this happened. They couldn't just like turn into or they would be like. I'm really sorry that Kylo Ren upset right now like crazy. And that's when I was like okay. They've lost the read the manual. They've obviously gone through this emotional training to try and like make sure everyone's happy when a ride breaks and people are truly pissed off. I order by the way I got. Yeah let your Star Wars. Because I didn't really watch the new ones because they didn't like them. That much kept saying literally I would go to him and just telling people who were crying like that. The first order has broken the rise. I'll take it up with Laurent anyways. That was a great example of the way they've been trained to try and keep this facade going even in the worst of times and although I really did think it was going to create a lot more emotional distress. This study found that yes. Some people were emotionally distressed from having to sort of play this game even though they were having a bad day but for the most part people did enjoy the magic of Disney. Okay well that was really interesting. I think we'll take a break and when we come back. I'm GonNa talk about why there are no mosquitoes.

"I think it's time that we get into what we're talking about today. Which is the iconic iconic American Americana on the Land Slash World studied won't Tur- Eleusis. Disney was born in Kansas City Missouri in nineteen o one with five hundred dollars you move to California and made a bunch of cartoons with the character named Oswald the rabbit but when a company went behind his back and hired animators to continue the series without Walt Hubris report. You resorted to a new character named Mickey Mouse. Did you know that no so? He moved here With his brother and he made a series of cartoons that really popped off and then like these animators like hire this company hired animators and continued the cartoon without him and he didn't like own it essentially and so he was like fine like my own Mickey Mouse and then it popped off. Oh good for Disney. Yeah there's a different world where Oswald the lucky rabbit would have taken over Oz world. Yeah world so then like he then soon after made. Snow White and the seven dwarfs in nineteen thirty seven. Yeah that always shocks me because I feel like no wait seems more modern than than for example sleeping beauty. Oh yeah wait I was letting his sleeping beauty no snow way is the dwarves is so old. Wow even that song catchy tune yeah sites. Bring that back okay. Yeah I was honestly very impressed. I totally thought that movie was from late. Seventy S. I thought it was from the eighties for so long. And then someone said that was like that's not possible so then after years of planning and Construction Disneyland One. We will be talking about today. In Anaheim California opened on July seventeenth nineteen fifty five. So it's really all like dot castle that we saw that is the original sort of built in nineteen fifty five so it was quite old. He obviously was quite young when this came out it was a big deal. He obviously is like into capitalism but everyone was in those days everyone those L. is bay. I know but then it was. No one knew it was bad. Yeah okay but no one knew. Economic strife and class bores and all these things. Taking advantage of people have had lots of issues going on around that that's true. So the one in Orlando though he actually never got to see open so the one in Orlando opened in nineteen seventy one whereas the one in California in Nineteen fifty-five jump. I know and so he died in nineteen sixty six though from lung cancer so he never got to see the one in Orlando Open but the one in Orlando is the leading employer in central Florida and is the as was the biggest single site employer in the United States with over fifty eight thousand cast members which is like what my study is about okay but like the. Hass member meaning anyone who works? Do they call everyone and constantly? Which is by my study is about is like about that okay. Well let's get into that. I just wanted to just like hash out of a history as I feel like. You're more of a Disney gay than I. People need to know that Disney his thing. I found out recently. I didn't know that was the thing. But you're saying they're just like some gay people who are obsessed with on a level that we wouldn't understand exactly the kind of pride like Delaware Mickey Mouse ears or no. Yeah no I think it's kind of like Furry Real. I mean I love Disney and I love Disney songs and musicals and all those kinds of things but I don't identify as Disney game. Yeah I know I know that's true but when I'm at Disneyland. What's up and there are people who have like memberships. And who are really. I know like all the characters all right Disney most on I was like weirdly like only selected. Disney movies was I even exposed where I saw a lot and for the first time like three years ago but yeah I just I only found that out. Gregg was hiding that from me. He had seen a lot it. I still haven't seen a lot of Disney movies so like when we were on. I haven't seen Indiana Jones was I was just a ride. I don't know if I was movie but it was at Disney but also crazy. You just found that out the other day I constantly learning about you. I know thirteen years to admit to me you haven't seen in the NFL. I didn't know those amid the ride and karate Blah but like yeah no I just haven't now I can understand why people love is blind. They just didn't have enough time to reveal everything. Some of the controversy comes in and even really allowed to me in the ten days. I had to fall in love with you. So my study is about emotional regulation at Walt Disneyworld. Deep acting versus surface acting so that this specific one was at Walt Disneyworld but then the later they do one from Disneyland. And so that's one also GONNA be looking at two relates more to the one that we were at cool but essentially when you are employed at. Disneyland you are considered a cast member. And when you're out and you're about with the patrons and your You know interacting with people that means. They're like onstage. And when you're not you're backstage and one thing that they really do a good job of which I noticed from this study that I want. The park was like this is true. You aren't really supposed to see backstage. You should never see. You shouldn't even really someone coming in and out from backstage like they have a grey weirdly entrances around corners aren't and when you're onstage you are on you wear emotionally regulated and you are not complaining and you are smiling and it's very fascinating how they have actually created kind of interesting from like not just from a business perspective but from even being an employee to be like okay my job and I turn on when I'm on stage I'm an actor I do the same thing not to say. There aren't way different challenges when you're an employee at Disney compared to being an actor on stage but I mean I'm like Oh that's kind of fun it would help you to be like. Hey now I'm doing my job so jobs that do have things like this whether you cope is something called surface surface acting. And so did you. Did you give context of what the study's about so the study is about them interviewing people who have worked at Disney and what sort of emotional regulation tactics they had to go through because of the assize of this Sorta onstage offstage dichotomy and then how that might impact them like literally emotionally? Oh Okay ex-disney people who go keep going curious but other jobs like to make you understand that are similar to working at Disneyland would be like a flight attendant or working in the service and one way that they can tell that you're likely sort of having to emotional regulation for your job is when you hear like telephone voice like when you hear somebody like the wrong kind of like natural voice. It's almost like it's put on. Yes it's like. They called it television voice and I was like I can relate and I can understand we have to do. We make videos right now. Are you kidding me? This was off or yeah and when we meet people and stuff like that yes you turn on because you want to be fun you WanNa be excited. And then they go away and then you're like tire but Disneyland really wants does not want surface acting. They want deep acting from their performers again performers and cast members. Everyone at Disneyland. That's anyone from the janitor to running through the ride anyone interact with and so this does create a lot of emotional exhaustion not to like like you know. Explain the ending of this study at the very beginning but something that they sort of like predicted in the hypothesis was an really did end up being like that and so what they found is that they work on something. Called the one to seventy rule that is it only takes one negative guest experience to counteract seventy positive experiences. They calculated. This is what they tell everyone who works there. They say you know one bad. Experience counteract seventy positive to increase the stakes. Like you learn this as someone who works at Disney. I'm like giving away the like dirty dirty Gos- and so they're literally given handbooks about how to regulate their emotions in order to ensure that guests like never ever feel like they're experiencing something negative they have to always perform and clean their environments. If they're not selling something or no one's buying something they should ask them how their rides were like everything is planned and made that you aren't ever really like seeing someone. Just sit there and Kinda like Zona right and so yeah what did you say? And it's all the way down to like on a smiles proper posture. They practice facial expressions part of their training as part of their printing. They start to make sure that you always say thank you with a smile after every single interaction you have someone regardless of what's happening and one lady said to me have a Turk tug horrific day and I was like what one of them was like. One of the people who they talked to was the one thing I found interesting. Was that okay. So in the end of the study they find this. Emotional regulation can lead to a lot of exhaustion in their employees and sometimes they work from eleven am one of these reports that they work from eleven to five am because of like when the park closes and having to clean like sauce tting job yes that was obviously like and it says example. It doesn't even say oh I know I'm just saying they were guest exactly but that was an extreme example but an example of how hard can be to work at Disney but a lot of these people love Disney so much that they've the employees yes moved from New Jersey from different parts of the country to California or to Florida to give that magical experience that they had as kids that that they do a very good job of employing people who sort of seem like that's the way they are to ensure the deep acting that they want from their employees and the surface acting. They monitor like with other employees. Always watching each other. And you're always kind of like on edge to not being sounding. I know I know and so I was surprised because I thought it was really going to be the result of this study like obviously this is a exhaustion and everyone so upset that they found that most people were actually really happy. Oh and had positive experiences. It wasn't so much positive selfless. Were able to deeply act happy because they genuinely excited to warranted as ramble. The culture that's been built around Disney. They have like Walt Disney gays into that. The point of like making people maybe like stress at their job or anything like that but I can understand how beautiful feeling that is to give somebody something that you enjoy and want to create that same experience for them and that giving you sustenance and and they do talk a lot about how they get a lot of backstage time. That's where they get to vent. That's where they could swear that's where they go in there and that's where they can not be on. Yeah you wanted. To get a picture with your. And they're like he's off shift. Yeah I know and I was like. That's very your thing for him to say he's like sorry buddy walking to the door and they were like he's coming back later but yeah they obviously like understand that they need to be often. They're allowed to when they're backstage. They're allowed to do things that they can't do when they're onstage of course but but a lot of people that I mean is actually true of most jobs. It's just maybe Disney holds them to a higher standard. Yes because if you're working at a clothing store they still are going to be like. You can't be rude to the customers. You have to be happy. You have to be positive but you can see while you're at Disneyland. They have gone to land is another level. Like you. Don't do talk to you and I must say I did hear surface acting while they are like people are saying the lines and it's like it's okay with me and one specific example. I want to talk about. Is The star Wars Star Wars ride the the Star Wars? Oh the one that we didn't get on. Yeah so do you WanNa give conduct with this ride because I feel like you knew more sure so this is the new ride called the rise of the resistance. It's brand new. It came out like two weeks ago and only a certain people can get on it. You have to go to the park so early. We got up at five. Am The because we were coming from la? Go there and at eight. Am You get in the park and media eight? Am You have two minutes to log into this APP and try and get a spot on the ride? So you thousands of people. Don't get it in the park like we were close to not being in the park it. Yeah because people now way outside of the park because they need to get in in time get scanned.

"Welcome back to side note today. Talking about Disneyland. We'll be talking about our recent trip to the magical kingdom looking at some studies that show how employees deal with their emotional distress and how disneyworld in particular manages to have no mosquitoes but hey and Gregg welcome back to side know how you doing. I'm doing good. We had like a little bit of a funds. Lash disturbing evening last night. Didn't we in what way what do you mean? Are you going to tell our truth? Yeah we were like maybe we'll make a pocket as well but we were watching. Tv show called a love is blind. We spent a lot of time watching it. So what makes you say that that's disturbing because we spent six hours straight watching it? I've actually never done what we did. Which was sit back. I audited them like literally just trying to switch it shoved into my tau. Did you notice a eight? The Mike that was what does that mean. Are you a rapper? Literally hit my tooth but still I would have always a phrase and I think it's when people are too close to the MIC. Because I would've said I hit my tooth with the Mike we were like. Oh I just ate the money. Is it hurt and I was like. I'm trying to eat it. You've been a musician in the past. Socials leave it at the crew. I am actually really experienced in this field. I've never watched a show. Like sat back. Let Net flicks play a junk food and just watched a reality? Tv show that it gave me a very strong mix of emotions a lot of anxiety but also a lot of just like pure like indulgence. Yeah I think we had we were. We have some friends visiting and we put it on just kind of like what is it about it. Let's see what it is I will. I'm not as you know what I say. What's the word I'm not as pure as you? I have done this before but it actually was the first time that Netflix gave me the message. Are you still watching which I know? It sounds like pretentious. I watch I'll watch. Tv straight problem. As I usually go get snacks so I stop it or posit so it knows I'm they're always snacking too much and I have a lot of bathroom bake so it's I've never been able to sit straight for the first time I'd ever showed up for me is i. Don't know what that means. I think that just because we were chatting we were eating snacks having fun and I would go to the bathroom in the middle of it. It's kind of a show. You don't have to see every moment of truly I would hope you haven't seen every moment of it. It is garbage but it is. I don't say that it was fun. Okay but I mean it's like it's a greg. We were all judging Greg. Because we're like Greg. You're judging this sorry we were all having so much. Watch Michelle me. New in the corner is Greg was like. We're all trash for watching this every time you guys like is it done like no one more so it was it worked on me and I really do think that it was addictive. But we're not here. To talk about. Love is blind. We are here to talk with Disneyland. That's another thing that we have partaken recently because we are currently in Los Angeles. Yeah so we're staying in Los Angeles but we have friends visiting and so it was a dream to go to Disneyland together. And that's what we do. You WanNa talk about that now. I want to wait 'til what we learned this week. Oh this week this week an interesting study came out on how food and your Diet impacts your brain and your appetite and in particular. They were looking at a western Diet. Can you make any predictions? What happens when you wind western Diet and to confront Fu from think of potatoes? Unthinking heavy that Dez to a person brain I think it's GonNa shut it. Dow. I think it's GonNa make you more logic and when it comes to appetite. Oh thing that's GonNa make you fall but for short periods of time. Okay Pretty Good. Pretty good predictions so basically this study found that consuming a western diet for a minimum of one week can impair brain function in humans. It's already been proven to do this and animals so this was the first time they're like we're actually going to test this in humans now and have control groups and give one group like their regular diet and the one that is focused on high fat and high added sugar so Western. Diet might have been like a loose description of this. Obviously not everyone has this who lives in the West. But that was the key indicators and they found that the hypothalamus basically shuts down which they know controls learning and memory as well as your appetite so the score is on learning and memory were lower after only a week of consuming a western Diet and then Impacted Diet control so it caused people to be more likely to overeat and have difficulty regulating their appetite. So this has a lot to Disneyland actually was like I I. I didn't think about it but then I was like there's a lot of young hi fi. Hydrographer Disneyland that's all. We ate while we were there and it actually was like it was tough to find anything that didn't fall under that exact explanation of western Diet. And you want to indulge. We started and we were thinking okay. We've heard these these amazing Horn dogs. Here we want to try our thinking about that because we went on space mountain right after and I was like. I'M GONNA throw up but you see it all around you. It's hard not and there's actually not a lot of options at least where we were where we could just like get healthy. Couldn't find a solid. We couldn't find vegetable certain restaurants. If you're prepared to sit down and eat. We probably could have got something but we were on the move. We were you know. Got Our fast paths triggering figuring out where we're going to like optimize our time so we were a little snack. Get on the ride. Did they have any examples of what exactly a Western Diet? Wiser not to set high fat and high looks through this study and some of the things I believe I saw like pancakes and milk shakes. Oh my God which a lot of people eat I saw some other stats popping up in the review of the study. That said like I should. Maybe I don't quote me on this but it was like thirty. Three percent of Americans eat fast food every day or something like that like and whatever fast food. I'm not exactly sure how that was qualified but because people were like. Oh but you know people. Aren't eating pancakes milkshakes? Every day but it was like a lot of people in American particularly are eating. Those aren't right now and I know you're in Los Angeles land the land of juice but green juice green juice but I do or be or red or purple shoes but I do find that. I still have a lot more tempted here. There are lot more fast food joints. It feels like everywhere. I try them all exactly. I do feel like we are in one of what would be deemed the healthiest cities in America. And it's still really hard for us to not eat the western Diet that you described and even plainy. We may go to a restaurant and their friends. And I'm sure it will be indulgent and high fat and high sugar and salt and everything. 'cause you lean into it when you're here in an huge huge huge portions. That's one thing that was at Disneyland was. The portions are massive just decide. Oh haven't used that in a long time on this but I also was reading about how there have been studies done because some people think. Yeah but you can eat unhealthy at home but almost always. When people are cooking at home there are always healthier. Because you're more likely to be using a extra virgin olive oil or like healthy fats and healthy foods whereas chains and restaurants use the cheapest sort of like base for oils and things like that which like tastes really good but are not good for you so even if you're cooking the same thing you would be eating out you're more likely to make a healthier version at home of it. Yeah that does make sense to me. Whenever I'm out eating out to like better tastes good. So I'm I don't care how you got there but my mouth. Better be firing. Am I talking to American? You have been doing that like all week. Been here for two weeks talkline like Oh yeah. What did you learn about America to and something that I've been thinking about a lot It's a bit of a left. Turn something you actually taught me. Which was that in? Two Thousand Eighteen Amazon paid zero dollars in federal income tax on more than eleven billion dollars in profits before tax taxes. You told me that and I was like I can't understand why Amazon would not have paid federal income to act like they're a huge corporation. I didn't believe you I looked it up. It's literally true. For decades. Profitable companies have been able to avoid corporate taxes in America but the list of companies that are paying zero has doubled since this president. Trump's two thousand seventeen tax bill which expanded corporate tax breaks and reduced the tax rate on corporate income. So these companies paid no taxes Amazon Delta Airlines Chevron General Motors Easy and. They say it's because it will create jobs but like they've done studies and found that that's it's currently a lot less than expected and they just think like as a Canadian living in America. I'll walk around and I whispered to myself like twenty times a day. Like displacement socialism. Like it it's a lot different than living in Canada. Just like the roads are like falling apart. A little bit more like the infrastructure is obviously a lot different like. There's a lot of homeless people and I'm just like you need a tax Amazon. Like this is insane. I would help. That would help to have some money to fix the things that are problems for sure and just think like learning styles and surprising. It was the biggest controversy in Canada when it was found that Netflix was avoiding tax. Like what we'll start also didn't pay. Yeah but but even as Canadians realizing it's an American company even if it did tax in America it wouldn't pay tax in candidate but it's making money off Canadians. That was a big controversy and then net fix announced. We're going to dedicate this X. amount of billions of dollars to Canadian content. Because we know you're upset that we're not helping to find your country at all so at least the least we can do is fund the arts in your country with Canadian content and hiring Canadian actors and production companies and things like that. But yeah it's crazy to think that people would like Yeah Amazon Disney debate tax. They can how much money can be made from that. It does make me think like there's a there's only nuances that you really realize as a Canadian living in America for the two months that we are because we're all North American and I think culturally are quite similar but these are the types of things that I start to realize is like really. They don't people in America have a hard time talking about paying tax. They have a hard time you know. Obviously when we look at the debates it's like what Bernie Sanders or someone who would be considered radically left to some people like as a Canadian. It's like what you don't like already knew that there's a lot of Europeans who also Bernie Sanders is just the status quo here. He's not even that radical anyway. Healthcare you need Medicare for all like when I look around and I see how many homes people are in Los Angeles. I can only imagine how much of that of people living with homelessness has been exacerbated by the fact that like maybe they got sick or something like I dunno I. I obviously think there's so many amazing aspects of America and being here. I'm like Oh it's A. It's a beautiful Lake City and country and I know there's so many people living here and there's a lot of issues but I am just like. Oh my gosh. I can't wait to go home to Canada until like where I just feel like. There's a lot of issues as well but there's just a baseline level of socialism that makes me feel so communist too right. I know I'm not talking about specifically just like being able to go home and I'm proud of these things. My countries like dozen almost takes. I've learned about Canada by being here like there's things they take for advanced take advantage. What's you take for granted? That's the worst that I take for granted and I just. I don't know I'm surprised that this is what I'm feeling while here. 'cause I was excited America. I don't know I I hate bringing it up bringing up all the time the Americans and they're like hey you're just like well. Yeah it's just it's just coming from the outside it's easier to see and I'm sure many Europeans could come to Canada and say similar thing for sure and we only have thirty four million people there started going. California like you need someone to do something harder to actually implement but good to see that we've been debating doing a podcast on socialism just to talk about those ideals what it means for not just America the world So if you think that'd be interesting because obviously it's being talked about a lot right now because of Bernie Sanders. We definitely will do that. I know that we will because it's truly I think about while here and speaking of America. I think it's time that we get into what we're talking about today. Which is the iconic iconic American Americana on the Land Slash.

"So Brad is out sick today. So we don't have we have a slightly unfold. Water cooler for we have a lot to talk about. So let's jump into it as you know of last week. I'm going to galaxy's edge. And I have kind of I think I've talked about it on this podcast. I wanna cover this in a way that I think people would wanna watch it. And I don't feel like people people want to read coverage of this new Star Wars theme park land in text, which is a few photos. I think the people want to see it. So I I've been talking with. The people I've talked with Ben about this. I I wanna film this like a video blog. So that you can like experience it with me. So this past week I decided to go to best buy ended up buying a bunch of cameras. I bought three different. Actually, I bought two different digital cameras. I bought the canon G seven x Mark to this is a point you camera that a lot of my favorite video bloggers us. The Tim tracker swears on it. And it's you know, it's very small very portable has a screen that flips out, and you could see from the front view that gives you good good, you know, selfie vision. In also bought a Osmo pocket, which is kind of like this really tiny gyro like camera. So it's like very stabilized and kit. Tra also has a Sony a six thousand. And camera. I think so we were we went to Disneyland over the weekend with those three cameras in my iphone. So we're testing out four different cameras. We recorded a our first attempt an actual blog, which I'm going to probably put up on on my personal channel at some point this week. But basically the whole point of it was to test. These these four cameras and see what would be good for galaxy said also, you know, to get some experience down to to, you know, even coming back from Disneyland to be able to come home. I I have not edited on a video editor since probably like fifteen years ago. I was using Vegas video. So my friend Jeff came over and gave me kind of a primer on adobe premiere and taught me how to edit with that. So I've been spending some time in front of the computer with kit. Tra. Editing together this video blog that we kind of haphazardly shot at Disneyland which will be out sometime this week, and I can tell you just from the editing process alone. I've learned so much about what I missed when shooting and what I what kind of you know, I need a wide shot of this need a close up of the I need a transition here. I it just it's such a different way of storytelling that I'm not used to. I've spent so much time in the print world in writing in the last fifteen years that like it's just a whole other tool sets. I I was talking with you Ben at a cinema con because you do some video coverage there, and you it to be more instinct for you now that you've done so many videos. Yeah, I think so the the big key that I, you know, if I would give you one piece of advice, it's to overshoot the hell out of every. Thing because as I'm sure you've already realized being in the editing room after just one particular log episode, and you know, the the idea of having enough coverage. It almost seems like you never have enough so shoot everything and shoot it multiple ways to that's a big thing. 'cause I tend to sort of see things in my head a little bit. But then it's a collaboration my videos, our collaboration with my my wife, and sometimes she sees things a little bit differently. So the idea of just shooting something one way like Robert Rodriguez style, you know, putting it all together in your mind on the fly. Coverage is sort of a dirty word of because it implies that you don't have a vision. But options are always nice. I'll say that. I mean, I can tell that's good advice to editing this, although I will say having so many options were like halfway through this video editing this video blog, and I wanted this video.

"World. In the summer of nineteen fifty three they began construction of Disneyland. Because while love train so much the front of Disneyland included a train station with the train that visitors could ride around the park pass the train station. Visitors would walk down main street USA a make believe town that reminded wall of his childhood in Marceline, Missouri. Disneyland was designed in a wheel shape where visitors entered through main street USA than dirtying off into the spokes of the wheel into different lands with names such as fantasy land adventure land, Tomorrowland and frontier land each land had a different theme and rights to match the fem- at the center of Disneyland was a gigantic castle pattern after sleeping beauty's castle. Which interestingly was designed after the late nineteenth century, new enshrine Stein castle and Bavaria Germany. Which means if you ever visit Germany, you can tour the castle that looks like sleeping beauty's castle. Construction of Disneyland completed in nineteen fifty five if you've ever visited Disneyland it looked very different than than it does now which was over fifty years ago when it opened there were only a few rides such as Peter Pan. Snow White's scary adventures the jungle cruise the carousel and the Mark Twain riverboat people from all over came to Disneyland on opening day while was very excited. But also very nervous. Unfortunately, like many things in life opening day didn't go as planned. It was actually quite a mess. The first problem was how many visitors showed up Disney only gave out fifteen thousand tickets, but someone figured out how to make fake tickets and thirty thousand visitors showed up on the way to the park. There was a huge traffic jam. It was also one of the hottest days of the year. Another problem is that the rest. Wants weren't ready. So people were hungry and thirsty and many of the bathrooms didn't work, right. If that wasn't enough many of the rights broke down on opening day. After opening day. Many people thought Disneyland was going to be a complete failure. But after the first day Walton is team fixed. What needed to be fixed made changes that needed changing and open the park the next day? This is what you can do when things don't work out. Right. Then failure in life. You can say well that was a bummer. The failure is okay. Let's stand up and try it again. When the first of the park was done while said Disneyland will never be complete. Unlike his movies, he loved that. He could continually change the park and add to it always making it better year by year. And that is exactly what he did. Because wall liked to be at the park to supervise its operation. He had an apartment built in the second story of the fire station on main street USA in the mornings when he stayed there. He would slide down the fire pole walk out onto the street. Visitors after staying in the fire station one night, he woke up the next morning to child of visitor in the part, climbing up the fire pole that was a big surprise. And they had to change the way it was set up. Over time. The part Drouin popularity wall continued to have new ideas and Adnew rides and other attractions to the park later came the Dumbo ride and the matter Warren bobsleds later pirates of the Caribbean with its advanced animatronic space mountain and thunder mountain railroad. The imagine ears at Disneyland are always coming up with new ways to make the park more exciting at Disneyland. They call the engineers imagine ears. A combination of the words imagination and engineer. By nineteen sixty six waltz still had many ideas for his Disneyland. But sadly, he passed away leaving it in the hands of his brother, ROY and the imagine ears when you visit Disneyland if you look in the upper story of the fire station on main street USA, you'll see a lamp that always burns to honor Walt to the parents if you visit our Instagram page, you'll see photos of the fire station and the fire pole and the burning lamp. Not long after Walt's death. Disneyworld was constructed in Orlando, Florida. Did you know their total of six Disney parks across the world. They're in Paris, France Shanghai. China Hong Kong and Tokyo, Japan and later, California adventure was added to Disneyland California. When we visited recently, we saw construction of the new Star Wars park called Star Wars galaxy edge, which should be ready in a few months, like Walt Disney, you can dream big and make your dreams a reality through practice, persistence. His ideas for Disneyland didn't come to him in a day. I he practiced trying then he became an animator failing many times as he went along. But while always got back up put his failures behind him and continued on if you remember from the last episode at one time, he lost his favorite cartoon character Oswald, the lucky rabbit, but he put that behind. Him and created an even more popular character. Mickey Mouse, if you were to create your own theme park. What would it look like what would it be called what kind of rides? Would it have next time? You have a pencil and paper at hand dry your own theme park and share it with others. It's amazing. What incredible things can be accomplished that start with a dream.

In fact, I recorded this episode live on Instagram so follow us there at bedtime history. And on our Facebook page, and hopefully, we'll have a chance to interact with you during future events have had a lot of fun meeting. Smith our fans there so far. So recently, our family visited Disneyland in California. We thought it would be fun to make it part of our kids Christmas gift and my wife surprised them by making a big poster with Disneyland written on it in a paper chain for each of the kids to countdown days until we would go our kids were so excited and counted down the days in anticipation the day before we plan to go. We loaded in our van and era Zona and drove the six hours to Anaheim, California. But life doesn't always turn out like you plan when we arrived. It was raining and the forecast showed it would be raining. Every day. We plan to go to Disneyland. Fortunately, my wife planned ahead and got rain coats and boots for everyone and even bought a shower curtain to drape over our stroller at times. Disneyland wasn't quite the same. Because the sky was cloudy, and there was lots of rain, but we made the best of it and went indoors when it rained or found somewhere to warm warm to eat like the Gordon golden horseshoe. Saloon we even watched a show, and it was lots of fun. But when the rain stopped we went out and still got to go on lots of rides in fact, by the end of the trip, we thought it was even better because the lines were so short. We ended up having a great time together as a family, the older kids love the more thrilling rides like space mountain and splash mountain and even their little sister age four went on them, the when she was done she'd say that was scary. I only want fund rides. So we got to go on a lot of those rides with hurt too. And the last episode. We learn about the life of Walt Disney we started with his childhood in Marceline, Missouri than learned about his early days as an animator next. He created Mickey Mouse and steamboat Willie along with other short movies and characters until eventually creating his first full length animated movie Snow White, which was a huge success. Disney studios went on to make many more animated and live action movies, but wasn't content just to make movies. He wanted to bring his fairytales to life. This is the story about the making of Walt Disney's next big dream Disneyland. Before. Well, it was born his father was a carpenter the Chicago's world fair in eighteen ninety three also known as the world's Columbian exposition. Millions of people came from all over the world to visit the fair because while spotter was there. He may have told about it. This may have been one of his first inspirations and building his own park. After Disney studios became famous while was apparent on Sundays. He liked to take his daughters to Griffith park in Los Angeles at Griffith park. They bought treats and rode the merry go round during one visit while his daughters were writing the merry go round while thought to himself, wouldn't it be fun to build an even bigger park and one that kids and adults could enjoy. Well, it was always a kid at heart. And one of his hobbies was building model train cars he became interested in larger chain cars, and like to visit places with trains and ride the trains around eventually Walt built a miniature train track in his own backyard. It had train cars which were about the size of wagons and wellness friends rode the train cars around in the backyard. With the popularity of their movies. Disney studios had a lot of extra money to try new things wall decided his next big project would be a theme park he dreamed about in nineteen forty eight Walt sent a note to an employee at his studio with the plans for what he called the Mickey Mouse park. The next step would be to design the park and decide where to build it. The first Berge of the park was very small only about eight acres, but as his designers visited, other parks and gathered more ideas the size of the park began to grow in size, eventually Walton his team decided to buy one hundred sixty acres of land in Anaheim, California. At this time the land was mostly just orange groves. When wall I shared his idea. Many of the people around Walt discouraged him from creating the park even Walt's brother ROY worried about how they would ever pay for all his grand ideas, really and many others thought that if the park failed. It may hurt the rest of the studio in some ways, we can't blame him. It was a very big risk and once park was going to cost more money than he had. So he needed to find investors and investors someone who would share their money to help build the park, then with the park started making money, they would get paid back and some extra for letting embargo their money, but sadly, I Walt couldn't find enough investors. So his next idea was to create a TV show about what he was calling Disney. Disney land area. The TV network ABC began showing his TV series with an agreement that they would be an investor in his park to wealthy idea. Disneyland was a real life fantasy like his favorite fairy tales brought to life when people visited Disneyland. They would become the characters in his movie, and it would feel like they were actually a fantasy world.

"When he was designing Disneyland. Walt went to great lengths to keep the real world out like it's really hard to find a newspaper in Disneyland. There's nowhere to watch live sports either and in his most magical trick of all Walt built Disneyland. So you can't hear traffic when you're in there even though the park sits right next to a major freeway when so when you walk into Disneyland, you're just you're transported. Main street USA which stretches from the entrance turnstiles to the center of Disneyland is based on the neighborhood or Walt grew up in Marceline Missouri. It's the architectural equivalent of a barbershop quartet, quaint and old tiny. The buildings are different shades of bright, pastel with crisp white scalloped molding. It's the best version of his hometown that Walt could imagine. And so when you're walking up main street that nostalgia comes through your in a place that doesn't actually exist anywhere in America, but still feels recognizable and powerfully. Nostalgic Disneyland is a place where we can go and doesn't matter where we're from. You know, for Richard poor, if were you know, male or female, or whatever is a place where we can go. And we all feel like little kids. So in early twenty fourteen when Roxy I learned about these new Disneyland's social clubs, she decided to start her own. They call themselves the benching babes or the pixies for short Roxy says they're kind of like the sorority of the social club scene and Roxy as the founder of the benching babes became a little bit like the fairy godmother in Cinderella. You can't go to the bowl tonight. The ball open. I'm not call Shula. We'd have to hurry because even miracles take near. The bang babes are fabulous glamorous over the top, super colorful people. And if you don't like glitter, you should not be a member like any other self, respecting Disney social club. The battering babes were vests with customize rockers. Remember those are patches. You've got a top rocker, a bottom rocker, and that have words on them, and then the middle is tinker bell and it's like a bust. She's got Mickey ears on. She's got a big bow on her head. So it's very, you know, it's it's the kind of vested the bikers wear that like sons of anarchy, you know, that kind of thing. But a lot glitter Roxy moved from the bay area to southern California. So she could live closer to the park. She's only a five minute drive away from downtown Disney. She and the beggaring babes go to the park as. Often as they can and they dress up though to be clear, they're not dressed up as Disney characters, but as themselves the most colorful extravagant fantastical versions they can dream up Ashley. One of the pixies explains it's more than just a costume. Whether it be addressed a necklace. You can't go to the bowl without him a homes objects come to life state of blues. Coach, of course.
