"walt disney world" Discussed on The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station

"What it did but all of those. You know year long celebrations. Obviously we have a pretty big one right now. But i kinda missed. The ones that were weren't so much marketing weren't so much. come here. Were more you know about the year of a million dreams sort of things you know helping people out making memories things like that. I thought all of those for a good long. While we're we're really really really not only popular but but great ideas on my list. Good and i. I have a love hate relationship with it because i never nothing not. Give me a pin. Can you let did i went to the level. Oh look there's lumine jello run. Run is just going to talk about as podcast. Then we're gonna get ambushed by these people about. That was the surprise and delight. And i know the reason why you may not like it but i loved the ability to just make. Somebody's day and it didn't have to be something big. It could be something small pin fast. Pass anything. i think that that was one of the most brilliant campaigns that they've ever done that embodied so many different guests and gave benefits to so many different guests in were still walking around with those memories and talking about it today more importantly it empowered the cast members to do what cast members do which is make people happy and yes. They had things that you know at four zero seven. Pm row to seat. Three of kilimanjaro safari. But there were also when. I'm still friends with some of the members of the dream squad. Throw me a pin man. It's been fourteen years right but but they're able to go up and make magic for people. And that i think is is the perfect cast member role. But let's we clean move from the past into that. I just like to say. I miss ditches great escape. I'm kidding attraction. Suck tom kidding. I'm kidding. I everyone Yeah i i miss haiti. That's what i. That's what i miss you. Misuse it great escape. You meant supersonic celebration. Both of them I will say a relatively new one that we just recently lost which i loved so much the disney must use featuring stacey It's transitioned i will say on. I m b. as a nine point three out of ten and it's not because i've created twenty four separate accounts logged in but those are two. I think when you walk in to your hotel room very much always the beginning of the trip you turn on the tv. That's the first thing you would see. And i think It was very special for a lot of people for for many many many years and had a couple of durations. But i mean it ran its course but it was definitely something i always look forward to everybody's friend she was if you're talking about things that you don't miss from the past extraterrestrial is my all the back of your head. It's it spits on you. This thing is are. We learned about the alien the alien that i stand that i can tell you that there. There are very few things that my first visit that. I was dying for dying to get on american adventure just because that is one of the most iconic attractions for epcot the twilight zone tariff terror. They just moved it into the fear. Every drop version five point. Oh or something and the george. Lucas presents the extraterrestrial alien counter. As i am i won't i won't fight that but it was such. It was the the attraction that you never thought you would see and in in the magic kingdom and sadly it you know it turned into one of the worst punch lines as connor just pointed out of stitches. Great escape but it was. I wanna say it was almost walt like where he wanted to challenge the guests with new attractions and new adventures. I i don't know won't ever would have had you know something licking the back of your neck. But it was the animatronic this sir was amazing. Skippy was by far skippy. Was one of the best. Non p plush next figment in disney history. And now he's gone by way of the dodo but alien counter was by far one of my favorite attractions. And i'd love watching everybody just walking out of there screaming screaming. That was my mom by the way. Just say i remember. I literally remember the day we got off. My dad and i were like dots awesome. My mother's like. I wanna talk to a manager. I'm kidding she didn't say that. But we talked about this. Because it was such a non walt disney world like attraction and the fact that they were pushing the envelope. Because and you can credit this to michael eisner who after the attraction soft opening. Shut this down. Make it scarier because he realized that he was losing the thirteen to twenty four year old. You know teenage boy. Who wanted something exciting to get. Your blood pumping was for everybody. Absolutely not not everything is necessarily supposed to be but i sort of love the fact that they push the envelope especially in a place like magic kingdom so but let's move from the past into the present and i really wanna hear about five ish things that were really enjoying most right now including end. Or what's new right. We just you know as we're celebrating. We're beginning to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of walt disney. World there have been in the introduction of probably more than the average guest might realize. There's a lot. Actually that was introduced. Even though we didn't get everything that we were supposed to because of the pandemic. But what are the things that you are loving right now. Either in terms of what brand new for the fifth anniversary just in general you know twenty twenty one to me. I'm gonna go with. The first thing that i thought of and this is probably going to be controversial. I can't wait to kind of hear everybody else's thoughts about this and lou may have to edit me. I'm not exactly sure. I adore harmonious. I absolutely love it. There is a story. I've i've watched the internet light itself on fire right afterwards. I think people made a mistake of watching the stream. Because if you're watching a stream you're getting what the director end or person that's filming it. is important to them not necessarily important to you and there is a story. This story is his random stuff. No there's a story it's it's drawn between it to unite all.

Which Walt Disney World Vacation Add-Ons Should You Buy?

"Today we're going to be debating add-ons yes or no right with you know. Well let's just talk about covert because you know well. Have you heard of this thing. This kovic thing so it's like hold. I think it is starting to rise again in multiple places and so on and so forth. But also i've just seen a lot of activity on people booking vacations once again and whether or not there for this summer. The the activity has started with people booking in particular walt disney world vacations. That i'm talking about here or that. We are talking about in this episode. And so when you book your vacation whether or not. It's your very first one or your twenty first one or your hundred. I one you have choices and you have the same choices. Well almost all of them. If you're buying an annual pass whenever those comeback so we wanna talk about these add on because it's a popular topic for return visitors and new guests alike. We're going to start with the park hopper so when you buy your tickets or pass tickets in particular. You have an option to buy the park. Offer it it's an option. It is an option. Should not be an option. Well let's talk about that and we can talk about it in two ways because as we record this here in july park hopper is allowed. But you can't hop until two pm under the current rules which makes it hard. I saw some people talking about four parks. One world sivan planning on doing that for years. You know there should be the cove addition because it's an extra challenge when you can't even make your i hop until two pm which means you have to do three parks after two pm but that aside. What are your thoughts on park hopper cove edition and park hopper normal edition. I mean you should definitely do it. I mean maybe you're not like me. But if i can't park up then i'll just desperately want to go to another park than the one that i was at or that i had booked depending on covert regulations. But i just. I need it so i have the option and oftentimes we will go to one or more parks obviously to more parks in the day and park hopper just as a very quick definition. If you don't know it allows you to go to more than one. Park a day as i said. You can't do that until two pm but you can go back to a park. You can go to three parks. Four parks whatever. It is one more in. Yeah in normal times you can go. You know there's no park pass or any of that stuff so right now you have that extra layer where you have to book a park with your visit will this day. I don't know but you have to go to that park. I and you have to actually go and check in before you can actually use your park hopper option.

Which Walt Disney World Rides Are Better at Night

"Going to talk about. What are the best rides to ride at night in each park and a long time ago. I think we did an episode on disney after dark. But this time we're going to focus in on rides and i would thank important. There's certain things well. There's some other stuff. That's cool at night like world showcase and you know some areas with cool mood lighting like tomorrowland's pretty cool at night minus the speed with yesterday land but there are certain rides that really shine at night much more so than others. So we're going to dive into that. We will go park by park like we'd like to go i think. Do you have a park. you'd like to start with magic kingdom. Of course the classics also has some of the most i would say has the most rides. Yeah it also because you know me. I actually made a list class so and it does have the most rides. I think are extra special at night. Let's start with you. Why don't you tell me what would be your first ride. That add magic kingdom that you think i think we're saying is different and or better at night. No one ever tells me anything. So i don't really have a list but i like more off the top of your head. I like tomorrowland at night. Because it's more not spacey. But just i don't know it's it's cooler at night. I like the people mover at night. Tomorrowland transit authority. I think that's really fun to do at night. Why do you think it's fun to do at night versus the day okay. Do you like it better at night. Yes why because we'll i just like the night better in general but i on. It's like darker upside and so you almost get to see more of borland as it's cooler because you can see more when it's not so light and blinding and you're just kind of high and annoyed. I would actually agree. That tomorrowland itself is better at nice way better at night in the day. It's not bad it's it's sort of unawed land in the day it doesn't come together as well as the other lands do in terms of a sort of theme look and feel it's all concrete it's a bit scattered. It's got a bunch of random neon signs even stitches. Great escape sorta still sitting there but at night when the sort of neon and spay slate stuff. We consider future. Like you know when you see movies. That's it does look better night. There's the new tomorrowland entrance sign. So yeah i would agree.

Is it Possible to Relax at Walt Disney World?

"Do you think you should relax. On a walt disney world vacation. I'm so d'you relaxed. The question is how can you not relax. A walt disney world vacation. Don't go telling me that pounding. The parks is relaxing relaxing. So i'm talking about truly relaxing. Quiet not necessarily quiet time but things that go. Well just give it like this. Oh i'm at the upcoming five billion look at me. I'm so relaxed. I'm walking up mainstream. Lick me. I'm so relying on talking about fake relaxed for pitchers. Excuse me so. let's talk about. How do you do it. How do you relax on a walt disney world vacation and if you're really are an experienced traveler you know what i'm talking about. I want to hear your tips this week as well as we go out on social media at nineteen twenty three main street likely always to but my number one and i think the most important tip of all and i say it again and again and again is do not i repeat. Do not know. I'm gonna say over schedule. That's right. do not over plan because if you have yourself scheduled to death you will definitely not relax. And that's why. I say that's a newbie mistake. I just love how you do you. Just the biggest hypocrite just ever know. I always leave time. I never go to the park for eight hours ten hours. I'll go for three or four at the most out of time and then we head back. We're usually back will usually eat lunch in the park. If we're going in the morning which normally we especially now with no fast passes. Does it count if it's broken up. If what's broken up the time in the parks because for example you can go to animal kingdom for four hours in the day and then go to magic kingdom later for extra magic hour this because you are proving my point and what are we doing in between relaxing. La i think it's more stressful. When you're not at the party being a breather. We'll try to think like a normal person. And now i'll admit there are people who can found the parks and not relaxed but for the average especially new disney traveler. You can relax and not only can you you should

The Bare Necessities: Packing for a Walt Disney World Vacation

"We are indeed talking about packing for walt disney world vacation now. Is there even packing strategy. Yes i don't have one. I have one well. I guess i do. I don't think it's a strategy. But i will talk about how i packed. I know you go a little bit more in-depth with your packing well. How can you not go in depth. It's what you need for light. Let me start this episode. Which i've resisted doing for longtime. Because i just don't think packing for disney's big deal soaring and ask you. This question is packing for a disney vacation. Any different then packing for any other vacation. Well yes and no all right. Explain well because you see when you pack for a disney vacation you kind of have to be on just because you also do bring some disney pieces. But then also more specifically we pay for it. Because florida's i mean maybe if we're going to florida it's different but when you're going to disney you are in the parks day or will at least we do it so it's kind of hot. See after like if it during the summer to bring silly tanked up so you have to plan more specifically for disney which is different than when you pack anywhere else and that's because you're talking about the parks yet the park factor to your packing which is even if you're going to be something like you're spending a lot of time there like every single day so you'd have to pack differently when you're doing that and also i just find packing for disney more fun so i would have to say. I have no different strategy. So i'm going to challenge you all the way along the way i pack for disney big or so. We can even go deeper way. Pack for a walt disney world vacation or a disney alani vacation or. It's different even within. It's not for me though reports different for me. It's all the same. I will have the exact same stuff no matter what pretty much unless it's a winter vacation so any vacation where it's warm weather. I pack the exact same way.

Disney Vacation Firsts, plus the Disney World Lightning Pass

"We're gonna take your first things to do when you arrive. At walt disney world disney vacation. I got this idea because someone recently said to me well. What's the first thing you should do when you get there. This is not only on your first visit. These are things that i have planned out to do every time i go right. So let's take it that way. And here's how. I thought we'd start first of all since we're doing disney firsts. And we've had this discussion with a family member recently actually. When is the first time you should take a child now. Of course you can go anytime. I mean there's plenty of newborns encarta around parts i say don't let your child slow you down if you wanna go. I'm just saying if you're thinking about the child. Yes the first time that they would really like understand. Kind of what's happening is just past the to get it. Maybe start to remembered a little bit. Exactly that's what we've found with you so when people ask that question although if you're only going to go once or twice maybe wait a bit more so they will remember it. Yeah here's what we found with amelia at age just over two. She was any younger than that. They may or may not know what's going on. Some kids are actually scared of the characters. I mean they're not necessarily going to be like. Oh look mummy at disneyworld. I fully understand everything now. But at age to you know you're walking and you in particular were completely loving the characters the princesses you interacted with them. You know you get lots of good pictures and videos and all that sorta stuff. I'm not saying i'm brilliant. But so if you're asking the ideal time for a first visit in terms of the child being able to actually have fun. Yeah i'd say anytime past the age of two. Now if you're saying when will remember that peak asian i think for you was around four. Yeah so you get like flashes of it when you re you can't form never remember it through

"Walt disney world resort expansion projects which is probably looks like. It's a bet. A ten or eleven page handout. That was things that were going on and some of the developments that were supposed to come to pass in the years to come. So we'll use those as reference materials as kendall ulcer up. I love the fact that you alexa. Deep researcher to and go through park by park really and even before we get into the theme parks. Let's start outside because one of the things we mentioned in terms of that did happen. The disney decade was the expansion of resorts in walt disneyworld. And with the ones that we got there were plans for additional resorts as well. Yeah i think. I might go with one. That was planned that we got but what the original plans were. Were very different from what we got. Which and that would be the boardwalk. What we have today is a hotel that includes a number of typical deluxe level hotel rooms and then obviously now the dvd villas with that but originally that was supposed to be an all suite luxury hotel with just five hundred and thirty units which thou will be a theme we hear crossed almost all of the different resorts that were planned during this time period. As far as the ones that we didn't get the resorts that we did get from that decade a lot of them were moderates and values. And i think we'll see as we go why that happened. But with the boardwalk they plan for those luxury units because at the time that was what customers were wanting at the end of the eighties. Heading into the beginning of the ninety s. That's what they. I don't know if they did surveys or polls or what the situation was. But you hear that across the board that what people were looking for. Was this more high end luxury even more so than the grand floridian that had just opened and then not only. Was there going to be those high end. Units there was going to be the boardwalk like what we have today but It was going to be somewhat different. If you watch back in the nineties there would be these little clips. On the disney channel called dateline walt disneyworld and the one from nineteen ninety included a model for the boardwalk. And you can see in there. There was a roller coaster in the model.

How to Vacation at Disney World, Without Stepping Foot in a Park

"We've done this a few times on our vacations which is vacationing at walt. Disney world. without going to the parks So i i know i enjoy it because we go so often. People always say like. Oh my gosh you know. Five days at disney. I'm just so tired because you know you get up early. Go to the park. Go to bed late and you kind of get burned out that way so this this is a good way to do disney just like any other resort so sharpie you wanna you wanna go with your first Tipper tidbit on vacationing disneyworld. Without going to the parks my first suggestion would be in the way you pack. I know that sounds crazy but always remember that. If you're if you're not going to the park you're you're gonna be dressing in mica resort in resort casual you. Can you can dress up a little bit more. If you're not going to the parks 'cause you know you need to be a little bit more comfortable but also you can take in some of the nicer restaurants and enjoy enjoy. The meal without being rushed so so think ahead to the type of things that you want to do while you're on vacation and pack more resort vacation instead of arcs vacation. That's my first gesture. This is definitely good advice. So you had to to expand on your point of taking this like a resort vacation. And that's how i kind of think of disney world. It's like a resort that you would go like a beach vacation where you go to resort Same thing that. Walt disney world. Where you go to a really nice resort but you just have the added benefit if you wanna go to a park for a little bit Or go to apcoa for dinner or something you could do that But just staying at your resort I i like the idea that where you can take it a more relaxed approach. Because i always feel like all right we gotta get dinner. We gotta get outta dinner. We gotta go see the fireworks over. We gotta be here So there's none of that you're just taking it

Walt Disney World in the Summer: What to Expect

"Summers approaching and maybe were coming towards the end of this pandemic people. People from outside of florida are starting to plan. Walt disney world vacations. And if there's any luck we may be there once again in the summer and if you have never been in these seen if you have never been to walt disneyworld in the summer before recommends you bring a water bottle. Well we're gonna talk about a lot of things that make different than any time of year. Now we go with the exception of last summer. Twenty twenty every single summer at least once sometimes more than once so we are walt disneyworld. Summer experienced yes. We are veteran experts as vacationers not as locals although that would be nice someday but for now going there on vacation. The summer is quite different than any other season for of the year. So in this episode. We'll be sharing some of those differences and some of our tips as disney summer travellers first of all and most obvious is it is hot. I think that's quite an understatement. It is very hot. You're on the face of the sun robert that you know i'm going to start this by saying a couple of years ago. Maybe three or four now can't remember exactly tie five. We were there for record-setting heat so it was hundred and twenty five or something like that. I'll have to look back. It was scorching hot. It was so hot that the orlando sentinel front. Page said power grids strains under pressure of air conditioners. Which you know it's florida. You don't expect that to be happening a lot. They said it was hot even for them. Cast member said this is hard even for us and i remember walking. We were staying at animal kingdom lodge at that time and i remember walking. We had to rent a car because it was the summer and we do barrel beach to along with disneyworld on that big. So i remember walking out of animal kingdom lodge to the parking lot and as soon as you stepped out the front doors it literally felt like asana

The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT

"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

Disneyland to reopen on April 30 as Disney+ surpasses 100M global subscribers

"California's Disneyland is set to reopen April 30th with limited capacity more than a year. After being shut down amidst the pandemic. During this time, the company is doubled down on its streaming efforts with Disney Plus and ESPN. Plus our Ludlow has more at Yes, Disney is one of these stocks one of the companies of the pandemic right Disney, Plus such a big part of that the company is my Bloomberg and look at this chart because if you go all the way back before the pandemic, you have to remember that the parks was such a big piece of the Disney story. The Bloomberg terminal, which hope you can get up in the second shows that there's a proportion of overall revenue. Here it is. Parks experiences a merchandise. Was topping 40% in many of the quarters leading up to the pandemic. You can see on the far right hand side of your screen and then drops off, But there's signs of recovery. So it's kind of no wonder that investors are cheering the reopening because once again, it will continue to be an important contributor to the top line. But Disney Pass really is the story. And if we take a look at how subscribers have grown for Disney, plus Look at that astonishing at the pace of growth since launch to more than 100 million subscribers today, So where does that leave us? What is Disney Is Disney a immediate company? It is. Isn't this great entertainment giant that we've always know if you look at it share price against Netflix, which is trying to catch up with industry space and also six flags. Which, of course, is the theme park Isolated theme park company You can see over the last 12 months, six Flags has done astonishingly well. It's recovered. It's part of this reopening trade their Netflix, which did so well at the end of 2020 the stay at home trade of all of our streaming. That recovered Disney Somewhere in the middle. You could argue that it's both a reopening trade on the stay at home trade, because as long as we're stuck at home, we're watching things on Disney plus with streaming. But is the economy recovers on the vaccine? Rollout improves? Look it there middle of the pack. It benefits from that reopening because it's other business areas, then recover like parks like cruise ships. Like merchandise, so it's certainly want to watch going forward. It's really adapted and pivoted during the pandemic, Emily But what happens when life goes back to normal? That's what I wanna know. Disney Right. The company is so different than it was even a year ago. I'd love lo there. Thanks so much. I spoke about all of that. With the CEO of Disney himself Bob Shaye pack earlier this morning. He expressed his optimism. About the reopening and what the rest of the year holds. Take a listen. We're thrilled with the response that we're seeing from our guest in terms of future reservations and intend to come back to our parks. I think it's a function of two things number one confidence that you know we're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for the pandemic. But also tremendous trust in our brand. You know, we've been able to operate across the world it Walt Disney World, For example, for the last nine months, and we've done so responsibly. We've had the MBA bubble that was so successful, and I think guests know that Disney is going to do it right. And that brand trust really leads them to want to come back to our parks and experience the magic and knows that we're going to be responsible as we do that, and they can have a great time. So the date is April 30th for California. But you're You've got 15% capacity limits in the red Here. You could get up to 25% if we get into the orange tear. Heads were thrilled, but investors want to know. Can you make money with these kind of limitations? No out of state residents as well. As we've said From the very beginning, there's a couple requirements for us to reopen the park first one as I mentioned as we have to be able to do so responsibly and make sure that everybody has a great time while also being safe at the same time. Were only going to open up. If it could be a creative to shareholder value. We're going to be able to cover our variable expenses and make a contribution towards profit. And that's been the case since we started re opening our parks nine months ago, and that will be the case with Disneyland. So we're confident we can do that, and, of course, as conditions improved, and the constraints are relieved. We'll be there to ramp up and make sure that everyone has a great time and welcome even more people back to the magic of Disney. So what are some of the new technologies that you've used over the last year that you think might stick around post pandemic Will temperature screenings continue. For example. Will you use the reservation system? Ah, lot more. Well, in addition to all the health guidelines that we've been following across the world, you know masks temperature checks, increased hygiene, six ft. Social distancing. We're also going to be introducing a new reservation system that's going to enable our guest have a great time, no matter when they choose to come to Disney. Of course, nobody ever wants to go through a pandemic, but our teams here have been hard at work. Making sure that when we re emerged that we're going to do so, in a way that's actually going to improve the guest experience, even versus a pre pandemic situation and our guest satisfaction score since we've re opened across the world have shown that indeed Our guest star even more satisfied than they were prior to the pandemic. We've learned some things we've learned to operate under constraints. All the time by delivering this is great saying Disney magic that you expect, but you know, we we've been in a fortunate situation where we've had a lot of demand in the past. In many cases that has exceeded what we can actually supply in terms of how many people we can put in the park, and there's been no situation that's been, you know, more like that than we've had upon reopening and really having operate under some really tight constraints, But we've gotten even better and better at it, And I think it's going to create a reemergence scenario where Magic is going to be even greater for our guests when they do come back to our

Disney Aims to Reopen Disneyland and California Adventure Parks at 'Limited Capacity by Late April'

"We do have a an end in sight with the opening of disneyland resort in anaheim california. So we're we're gonna see it open. That's exciting and so. Initially there was news that it would open april first and of course it is restricted. But it looks more based on. What we've we've heard from ceo bob Jap iq that. It might be leader in april and they've got a call thousands and thousands like ten thousand cast members that have been furloughed. They've got a call them all back and not only do they need refresh irs because it's been a year They need to be retrained because there are full year it has. It has been a year almost to the day well today but this week marks the the week that things started closing down last year. So i remember that day very well when we were podcasting and we couldn't believe that disney was shutting down and as we were recording that episode or no stuff just kept coming in as we were recording. I was very enclosing. This amazing that they're closing this closing bill o. Voice yeah it was very quick it was like do you think they'll close. They just closed it now. As a matter of fact yes. I do believe they will close very quickly so They've got to get all those cast members back and retrained. Now it is exciting the reopening but there are some caveats. it'll be at fifteen percent capacity. And initially they presume that it'll be restricted to california residents. Only so. Don't book your plane ticket anytime soon. can you imagine getting to do disneyland. At fifteen percent capacity.

Disney smashes streaming subscriber expectations

"We start off with disney delivering in its latest company smashing streaming expectations the stock higher in the after hours session. Let's get straight to julie abortion. Who is fresh off that disney call julia. Melissa earnings call underway right now. The stock up nearly three percent after the company exceeded expert expectations on the top line in reported a profit rather than the loss analysts anticipated. Now the two key areas in focus parks and streaming both outperformed expectations disney's streaming business outpaced projections going to ninety five million disney plus subscribers and one hundred and forty six million total direct. To consumer customer is now that includes hulu and espn plus that division grew revenue seventy three percent from the year earlier quarter especially pleased with the success of our correct. The consumer business and our recent strategic reorganization has enabled us to accelerate. The company. Said it was a dc first business model and further grow our streaming services disney plus has exceeded even our highest expectations. Meanwhile the parts visions revenue dropped less than anticipated down by fifty three percent the company announcing that covert has headed two point six billion dollar impact on the parks divisions operating income as a result of closures and reduced capacities. Where we've been able to reopen are with limited capacity guest have consistently demonstrated a willingness and a desire to visit which we believe is a testament to the fact that they feel confident. In the health and safety protocols we've put in place average daily attendance at walt disney world significantly from q for q one japex saying they're continuing to invest to build out different features of their parks and they said they are very pleased with the reservations and consumer interest in visiting parks. Melissa of course that's going to be in focus as they start to get to be able to increase their capacity in florida and are allowed to open up here in california. All right julia. Thank you julie. Borsen the latest on disney. Which is up three percent after hours. Dia dommie how do you like the stock. How do you like what they said on this. Call well kudos again. I mentioned the last night sort of took a pass on the kudos. I'll give it to her anyway. And tim who've been all over this and so listen. I'm not a huge fan of treadmills and this is going somewhere. Mel by the way suggest indulge me for a second but you get on a treadmill. You go eight miles an hour maybe walk. Maybe put down your honor for forty five minutes but when you get off your exactly where you started and i bring that up because listen. It's great that they keep adding people to disney plus i get it but as rich greenfield amongst. Many others pointed out our food down twenty-eight percent every year i'll tell you what that means because that's the game we play here but effectively a lot of ways that running in place. Now the naysayers will say. That's a bad thing. That's going to lead to decline in stock. And the optimists will say they're going to be able to monetize all those people there all by drew barrymore short with the delorean on it and those types of thing and maybe they'll go mr toad wild ride when the parks reopened. I'm not nearly as optimistic. So it's not a great ride valuations now or at levels where i don't think it necessarily should be okay and then it pick up on that point because i also read that tweet so this past quarter the arp average revenue per user was four dollars and three cents for disney plus and a year ago is five dollars and fifty six cents. Tim should we not care about this at this early stage of growth for disney for the streaming service. I don't think so. I mean i no. I don't think so. And i think you know guy may be like george jetson on the treadmill. I avoid treadmills i. I'd rather be out there and disney's running through the streets right now with with ninety five million and essentially when you add in hulu and espn plus. We heard those numbers. This strategic reorganization is part of the excitement. Here again. this division is up. Seventy three percent during a period when netflix is been in a sweet spot of engaged in couldn't be in a better position disney's outperform the stocks outperform disney from net flicks by almost forty percent since since august. But even over the last couple of years it's outperformed net flicks which we would all certainly agree is also making a move especially in terms of profitability. But again do we care about that. With netflix's should we care about that with disney when also they're showing that they can at least be profitable and their core business through very difficult times on the way out of kobe. So look i understand the profitability issues. At some point disney's got to create their own content. We know that's very expensive. But if you're asking me you know from from an investor's perspective. Am i happy with with the metrics that are driving the stock to move higher and thirty nine times five bucks. A share of two thousand and twenty two is is not expensive when you consider what is being paid for net flicks.

I realized this does not check the boxes of it's a place to go work not necessary place to get out of the Sun but for me a play a way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Park's noon resources to just go walking and that's one of my favorite ways to get away and this is outside of the parks wage. There's plenty of cool paths inside the parks to walk in Tomorrowland to Fantasyland being one of my favorites, but around the Resort's I just I love walking around especially the Epcot Resorts off walking around Crescent Lake exploring, you know, going into the swan dolphin area and even the long walk down the canal that leads to the studios, which is Again, it can be it can be hot. It's Florida if you decide to take this walk at 2 in the afternoon, but if you go early in the morning or late at night and just go for the sake of walking, there's virtually nobody there. You'll see a boat wander sale by every once awhile. See the scenery is beautiful though. And and again, it's one of those places where you're in Walt Disney World with tens of thousands of your closest friends, but it's a good place to go to feel like you are secluded and far away from everybody and similarly wandering around the Wilderness off and it's Trails. I like doing that too cuz it's nice place way to get away. So again, this is more of how to get away from the hustle and bustle. I don't see You could work on your phone. I don't see you bringing your laptop and a charger blue down on that path settling down halfway down and getting some honest-to-goodness work done. And there's no food. But those those check off some of the boxes on my list go with me as we go for a walk. You asked to go me to go with you and Tim. I'm them or alarm handed insulin. I almost put the Fort Wilderness walking slash hiking trails, but I thought nobody would actually believe that I would actually go and do something that looked like some semblance of of exercise. So I didn't know you knew they were there but I think you're right. I think there's a lot of places in park out of park at different Resorts that are these calm quiet out-of-the-way places to walk just be quiet and and you know, the the lists and sort of the qualifiers that I gave in terms of seats, you know, there's no sort of birth. Optimal, you know conditions for a quiet place. So if you do want to really sort of sit down and take a rest, but I think that you're right and I think you'll find some of those quiet location in any of the Resort's I think French Quarter is a great example of that even places like Caribbean Beach the poly Beach all have these wonderful places just to sort of take a quiet stroll so I don't need to go with you because I absolutely think that they qualify. All right. I'm I feel better. So that being said since I really wasn't a top ten list. I want you to give me off the top of your head your top three quiet spots in Walters were like if you could just snap your fingers at any time during the day and be in one of those locations to work rest think snooze snack, whatever. It might be. Where would you go? Me you're putting me on the spot things. We already talked about or yeah things narrow down the list to 3:30. Tim's three favorite quiet spots. Bellevue Lounge Can I say Exposition Hall even though it's not turning? No, you can't cuz you can't go there anymore. Cuz exhibition doesn't help the person that's listening saying. Wow. I need a bad to get away true. That's true. The upper level Courtyard and the Japan Pavilion, of course. and and the Grand Floridian Lobby during Christmas I like there you go. And in my room I did have in my room on my list. But since you you know, cuz dude, it just made it weird cuz everybody can't come to Tim's room. Now. The only thing I want to talk about that there was one trip. I was at I just I was it was at the boardwalk and I was working. I had my laptop and everything but I was in my room the the cool thing about it though was that I felt like Let's Pretend This is my office and I'm working and it's 2:00. It's food and wine. That's much time. What do I do the company cafeteria the fast food court. I'm going to go to France for some food and wine practice. So I was kind of it was just fun pretending like that was my office and I could walk so, you know, that's all I meant by that was at home like set up a little buffet and your kids to pretend that I'm going to wait maybe I like that. I'll I'll hit a button and near French musical go on to the kitchen. I'll feel like I went somewhere so I I will throw out the Carrollwood Pacific. Gosh, I might put pizza Rizzo up there. And number one is is katsura Grill. And I mean here you go. Japan has to be one no matter what and it's a very quick lesson. There are like your Expedition Hall. There are some that have been lost over time there there used to be and the last time I was there it was closed off on the second floor of the Glen Grand Floridian. There was a patio outside next to one of the stores that would Overlook the grounds and the pool em, it was closed off. It might be a smoking area now. Oh, that's the one I meant. It's oh no. Oh, well it was the last time I was there tomorrow and Terrace if you go into the upstairs seating area. Usually the Tomorrowland Terrace is closed and that seating area is not always open, but it is normally quiet up there and this doesn't qualify under my rules, but it gave.

"A wonderful little Fountain they're closed by two thousand and one of the one that I would mention is as you're walking from Africa to Asia as you're heading towards Yak & Yeti. You're going to pass Mister Kang. Malls, kiosk on the right stop get the fries. They're amazing. Trust me on this one. But if you keep going a little bit farther down there's this tiny little pathway that goes down this hill and there is maybe three or four very very small tables there with a beautiful view of the discovery river, which is wonderful shading is Hit or Miss depending on when you go but it is usually quiet because it's not necessarily it is sort of off the beaten path as it were and the last place that I would put an animal kingdom and I've used this number of times especially when I've had work that I had to do or a call that I would have to take a needed quiet. If you go into a rest off a saurus in dinoland USA, there's a few of the back rooms. So if you enter and make a left you can there's usually a quiet room there and there's there's actually another job. Upper room all the way on the right hand side. It's almost like a little add-on building and then there's also a really nice little covered patio that is right across from the entrance to dino dinosaur, which is really really nice quiet. It's shaded and there's usually not a lot of people there at all. I actually forgot one. I'm so I'm so embarrassed. I have an animal kingdom one one Kingdom one. Can I let me see if I can guess what it would cut it might be. Okay. I mean since you've pretty much named every other location name three, I named restaurantosaurus. Hi, where do you think I'm going to eat little seating area and Flame tree? I think that you're going to the seating area by the dawa bar near tusker House Restaurant. No, I'm not you are going to the harambe wage. You're going to the rembi marketplace. No, I'm not you're going to affection section later, but that's not where I'm going now to don't make it weird was talking about these Planet watch. Where are you going? You're going to Pandora and satulah. I want to Goat. Here's a I want to go to Pandora and relax wage. But yeah and relaxing you're enjoying. Oh, I just Beauty but I am sitting in 17 with my make my own Bowl hours on end now but when I go it's very beautiful and I love Pandora, but it was always so busy as I was wondering room that's not where I'm going and I let you off the hook now or do you want to keep them? Hey one of my favorite tranquil spots and all of all Disney World and I'm embarrassed. I did not have this on my original list. The maharajah jungle Trek variances. Typically there's there's so many places to relax but there's one place I love and it's just little Courtyard. There's a Jade Fountain smoke found but it's in the middle. There's benches there. It's so tranquil. It's so peaceful. It's just like gorilla Falls. There's it's a walk-through anytime you once so they can barely a lot of people there and if they are they're they're wandering through you feel like you're so far away from the real world and it's it's beautiful The Fountains are going little birds walk around they come up to you can take their picture. They're not scared of anything. But it's it's one of my favorite relaxing tranquil moments and a place is not a lot Disney World. And again, why did she think of it? Why didn't have it on my list see but as you were talking I remembered so that's how this all works. Well that gives me all throw in one more honorable mention cuz I I love and it involves if you go home. Behind Yak & Yeti, which has some of the best counter-service food in the park by the way walk all the way in the back behind the market. There's a little outdoor seating if you make a left and go all the way into the corner. It's there's shade trees. It's quiet. There's a beautiful little Stone Fountain there and you also have these little hidden rest rooms to so you've got it it ticks every box. It's quiet. It's got seating. It's got shade and it's got some real get the chicken fried rice and egg rolls and thank me later so far. I've had I've had chicken fried rice. I had french fries. I've had Tortuga Tavern tacos. I need to find some place to sit and relax literally got any idea. Maybe we should go to the maybe we should leave the the the parks for a while and go to the Resort's. I don't think that's going to save me from your home culinary journey across Walt Disney World. So for Resorts, I had I had two different categories of places to go. Hm which one do I go to I'll talk about well since we're hey, we're already full we might as well eat more. Um, I had a thought thoughts on favorite lounges a like to go to these I had to our my lips and these are both places that were it's not necessarily bring the food. And one of them is in food actually, but they were both to me like very overlooked places. You could always go to and I'm hoping nobody finds out about list Mike of Glen so I probably should talk about but I will anyway, so one of them is a favorite spot. We always go to for one looking to relax somewhere but more importantly more often than not you find, you know, you want to get lunch or a snack or dinner and you didn't make a reservation anywhere and never fear cuz if you're wandering around this is our favorite game, but if you're wanting to grab the Epcot Resorts, we discovered long time ago the cruise cup Lounge in the yacht club, which is right next to the yachtsman steakhouse. It's fantastic change. The ambience is Yacht Club amazing the food if you get it is really good. They have I believe they share the kitchen with the yachtsman steakhouse or not mistaken the wage. The great thing about it for every time we go though. It's rarely busy. So you can usually always get a place to sit. There aren't many places I said, but you can usually find one especially that's an off-time like mid-afternoon. This is opposed to hey, let's go to beaches and cream and get some ice cream. Now, you're probably waiting there really long time off, but this is a great place. He's always feel like nobody seems to know about it, but it's a fantastic place to sit and relax get a snack the other Lounge area that I really really like Is not far away you can tell I like the Epcot Resorts a lot. But this is over at the boardwalk in and this is the the Bellevue Lounge which is on like if you're coming from the Crescent Lake area and you go how do I say there's a courtyard and there's a door you can go in and go up the stairs into the lobby. The lounge is right there. And again, it's.

"Necessarily there's a usually letting groups in to see the movies and meet the characters and so forth. So you might have to wait a little bit. Once you're inside you can wander around wherever you want. Look at all the exhibits. Look at all the models. Look at the paintings do some shopping and but both places to me are very much a great place to get away from the crowds cool off and experience either some Disney home or some Star Wars history, which that's why we're all they're so great places to go and chill out for a little bit. So Disney's Hollywood Studios is interesting and I think because it is a physically small Park and there's a whole lot going on there in terms of traffic and and different locations. I think while there's a number of different places to me on Meander and wander off and sit and relax. So for example, I love Sunset Ranch Market down Sunset Boulevard, but for me, it doesn't necessarily qualify for the list Because unless you go in an off-track when you sit way in the back. Yes, you can find some tables but there's a lot of tables there. So sometimes that feeling of wanting to get away a little bit and a little bit more of the Serenity and and dare I say isolation is difficult. So there's one place that I love at Disney's Hollywood Studios and while it is dead, Associated with food trust me. It is not because of the food. My one and only spot on this list from Disney's Hollywood Studios is pizza Rizzo and when I say pizza Rizzo, I mean specifically the upstairs balcony. So if you go to Pizza Rizzo in Muppets Courtyard, you are so far removed from the hustle and bustle of even the entrance to Muppets entrance to Galaxy's Edge Star Tours the other parts of the park, it's covered. There's usually suggesting fans. There's usually nobody there because it's not the busiest restaurant. Obviously, I'm not talking about going on July Fourth weekend at 12:30 in the afternoon, but other parts of the day and evening that balcony is empty. It's quiet not just because it's not a lot of people there but because of where you are, so Finding a table and a quiet corner is very very simple there. Even if you need to move inside a lot of times that second floor is not necessarily busy and bonus tip. If you go into I called the ballroom, if you go into the the sort of Ballroom in the back that's decorated. Like every Italian wedding I ever went to in the lease that too is another quiet spot and has some longer family-style table. So if you need to sit with a large group of people you can do that as well and it's inside and it's air-conditioned. There's a lot of background music though depending on what might be playing so that could be potentially disruptive but I think outside on the pizza Rizzo balcony is I can't believe I'm saying this it's one of my favorite quiet getaways. So you grab a snack you grab a drink from inside there or somewhere else and you sit up there and just watch the world go by and and folks going into dead. Muppets and just Meandering around the courtyard and and pizza and the Miss Piggy Fountain and the Miss Piggy found you like to relax by the Miss Piggy found. I do pizza and hand time to play the music. It's time to light the lights go. I'll starts out at it. Yeah, that's it. You're going to start singing. Okay. Nobody wants to hear a trust me. So um, so again while there's other places like I even you know, I almost put Backlot Express that again that lower level seating area all the way off in the corner really close to Indiana Jones epic stunt spectacular is often nice to but again, if the show is going on it can get very very loud there too. And a lot of these places, you know timing is everything, you know, when you go in terms of time a day even time of year can affect how crowded or really empty they might be. Now, where are we going? Cuz I might need to jump ship at this point. So are you done with Disney's Hollywood Studios? I am done with Disney's Hollywood Studios. I can hear the yelling and the laughter from here. I'm not done. I'm leaving it open for everyone else's wonderful suggestions of where they like to go. Nice. Do you have anything at Disney's Animal Kingdom know have you ever been to Disney's Animal Kingdom? No. No, it's I I tried to think of one and all I remember is it's hot and I'm walking around the only places I actually could think of and I'm curious to hear what you have to say. I would think of him, but then they're falling into the category of it's a sit-down restaurant and it's nice to relax and all that. But I was in that same mindset as you I didn't want to put those on the list as a place you could just wander in and go relax. You know cuz I remember sitting and tiffin's or Yak & Yeti and you know, it's relaxing and quiet but that didn't really qualify as wander in anytime you want. So so make sure that I'm walking around sweating waiting to get on the plane. I'm going to help you out to him because I have a number and I love camping too because this is the park too slowly wander and explore and take your time. And I think that there are some beautiful locations here that don't necessarily require you look I love Nomad Lounge sitting outside by the water on that patio, but you have to go and you have to eat and you've gotta drink and it's it's a very small area so it's not always easy to get a quote. But so while I would love to put it on the list I didn't but I will tell you some of my favorite locations one of them it qualifies, but it doesn't because it's really dead. Not a lot of if really any seating there at all, but it is one of my favorite quiet spots to get away and there's never anybody there. But if you walk through the Discovery Island Trails towards the when you first when sorry when you first get into the park before you even get onto Like by the Tree of Life there these trails that that sort of lead you along this one trail that leads you along. If you're on the left hand side of the tree of life. It leads you by the water bowl before you enter the bridge to Africa that you could sort of meander and go through and there's this sort of I called the secret waterfall under the tree of life and along the way you can see there's a little porcupine exhibit and I think there's a flamingo exhibit there as well. You really get as close as you can and actually touch the tree of life and see some of the carvings there including the Jane Goodall the grape the David Gray beard carving, but there's this wonderful little waterfall. That's their unfortunately there's nowhere to sit because it is really it's a walking path, but I sort of included as a as a an appendix to the list, but there's really two. Yep. Three that I would put on Disney's Animal Kingdom. I've mentioned it before the lower level seating area of flame tree barbecue is again, one of my top five places to go in all of Walt Disney World because if you wander down you grab your barbecue obviously and then you wandered down there is one of The Pavilions. It's it's basically on the water. You're overlooking the Lagoon. You're overlooking Expedition Everest. It's beautiful. It's quiet. It's covered their ceiling fans off very very much out of the way again, as long as you're not going during Prime lunch and dinner time. There's also.

"Out you yeah, that's better and not for nothing. My little side is nothing to do with the topic at hand. But that little area is home to my brother's name on birth. The Main Street Windows. My brother is honored on one of the main street windows and I can see you perplexed on the other side of the video. Like what are you talking about? I guess I should explain please do so. My my brother's name is Robert and as it turns out one of the I think I have the story straight one of the the attorney slash businessman who helped Walt Disney acquire. The land in Florida was Robert Foster and his contributions to what we bought a Walt Disney World were so great. He is honored with the window on Main Street USA and I took a picture of and just send it to my mother and said, hey look your son's got a window. I didn't explain to her that it was just crazy wild coincidence, but and I don't really explain that to people when I show it to them either. I just because I have a connection. This is not really your brother. You just happen to show no. Yes, I should have qualified that the the Robert Foster who helped Walt Disney was not my brother who is not even born yet at that time, by the way, so I think so. No just a total coincidence, but it's funny, too. See but it happens to be on that street and every time someone mentions that street that's the first thing I think of but but yeah the voice lessons that is a pretty cool. I actually thought on your are you done your mileage Kingdom list. Am I swore? You would have second floor of the Columbia house or I did? Oh my God. It's right here on my list. That way. I know you will second floor on top of Breezeway. Exactly. Oh my gosh. Oh, you know why cuz I was so excited to get to East Center Street. So you're right because I know we've dined there before and talked about how it is wonderful out-of-the-way little quiet Nook that either gives you a view of the courtyard in front of Haunted Mansion or the Tangled area and you know, the the entrance to Columbia Harbor House and it's a small world on the other side. There you go. So Pecos Bill's and Polly Sleepy Hollow Harbor House East Center Street storybook circus. There you go. Very well, then they all involve food home pignose Phyllis is cool. Cuz I feel like there's a lot there's a lot in there the most people don't get to a chance to appreciate cuz they think it's a place to eat eat, you know, there's great Stories being told on the walls of picture are there and there's so there's so many cool rooms. There's like a memory storage there. There's a room. It's like you're outside and inside outside the house. So yeah, it's it's really fun to explore. Like I said, you get off the beaten path far enough. It's it doesn't crowds dissipate. And if I guess if you're at an odd time, you could even have some of these rooms to yourself basically cool. So all right, where where are we going next? Let us prove to Epcot Center. I know we both have jobs. A a larger affinity for that Park. Yeah, this was hard and this is good cuz this will give me a chance to think of an Animal Kingdom ones. I didn't have one for my list but wage. Yeah, so for you know what I'll Have chicks. I have one that falls into category if it's not there anymore, and I miss it terribly or it's not there in the way I remember being but then I have real ones. The one I thought this was always a place I went this was the Rest up get out of the Sun for a few minutes cool off and chill like there was that place as we're talking about different places to go? And this was off. I believe I guess the area still there. I'm not sure the the whole future world is of course changing rapidly as we all know. This was in the interventions building on we get this right on the south side of the park which would be the right side of the park. I'm still confused why they built Epcot upside down, but that's you know, but it was the interventions building and what it was the the back part as you walk through from the plaza in future world. If you were making your way over to future world had my hands up in front me West West with the land and Nemo and all that. There was a great place that was it was just this building there was nothing there was just this great expanse of space is dead. To space one of one of the best restrooms cuz nobody's ever there. But if it's so the thing I always remember about it was so cold and I was usually getting there because I would be walking from the Epcot resort area go through World Showcase taking the stopped to say hello to figment by that time. This Northern child is pretty drained by that time. So this is a great place to go to stop. It was right by Club cool where you could get my I could enjoy my Beverly and then go in and sit down and cool off, but it was such one. It was a very just nice place to sit and relax cuz not a lot of people were there but it was very very cold. It was one of the best air conditioning spots, but on occasion, you would have some interesting things to look at and for the longest time they had the pictorial timeline of Epcot up on the wall. So you could while you're relaxing you could Club. Take a journey back through time and see how Epcot grew over the years. They've had special exhibits there. Back at 4 epcot's 25th anniversary. They had a special exhibit and this is where I saw the Dreamcatcher vehicle the robot from Horizons early models of spaceship earth. It's very cool. I'm in recent years that's been a place for special exhibits at flower and garden and food and wine. I think it was flower and garden. They had a very cool light bulb beverage exhibit. I took pictures. I still understand what it was the beverages were good. But it was just a great place to go relax and get out of the Sun and palm rest those tired feet for a while catch a breath and then go on out and try your luck with crush and Nemo and all those wacky Critters. Try your luck. Was there a lot of gambling get involved like not sure what you need to get with the Crush in Nemo. I got a little scared when that deep sea fish. The luck was weathered the deep sea angling fish animatronic. Was working or not cuz if it's working then I'm a little scared if it's not then I'm okay. So that was the gamble boy. That was a stretch but you know what? I mean? I got you down. I do remember and I love that area in for a number of years. A lot of of futureworld West on the left side right side was it it sat empty to a degree and there was a lot of times that you'd be able to go in there and it was sometimes it be tables and chairs or at least be able to sit by the windows and cool off and get away from it all in the interest of time to actually keep this top ten ish and not mentioning every single quiet corner and boy, I could have mentioned every World Showcase Pavilion too and.

"Solitude as it were and here's throw the immediate wrench into your arm on here we go. I will tell you some things that are not on my list because I just I just felt that they were obvious with your hotel room, right? I think your hotel room is obviously what's up. You know. What? All right fine. Is it? Is it on your list? Yeah. Oh so never mind forget. What were the weather with a dog? Caveat though. So it'll it'll make sense. Go ahead will knock out the rest of my list. What else doesn't know that's fine. That's all I had. I just know. Didn't put it on my list. We can talk about yours and then we'll also talk about a few extinct quiet places that are unfortunately lost over time that I want to make sure I come back to and talk to cuz I'm sad and that they are gone. I actually have one of those on my block list two, very interesting. So I thought as we even started to talk I said, why don't we do it to make it easier for people who are thinking and planning out their upcoming trips or visits to the park? What if we try and break it down or at least go in order of park by Park and then Resorts and Disney Springs if you have any Wow. Again rules. I was not made privy to don't think of it as a role as a guideline. What if they all revolve around my Resort room, though? Well, then yawned. I think we're starting. We're we stuck. Well, I think it makes sense to start in in Magic Kingdom. How can I say Magic Kingdom? And you guys there's no what no. Well, actually I'll start this cuz this was the the piece on my the item on my list that is not round any more and If I am checking my list to make sure the s that was the only one so this was as I mentioned as I thought of different reasons why you would want to find a quiet spot. This was in the category of just getting away from the hustle and bustle of the Park's taking a little breather not necessarily eating or anything like that but finding a place to chill for a while and my favorite place for the longest time was the exposition Hall in the Town Square on Main Street, and this is before Mickey arrived in the meet and greets arrive. This was back when you could go in And a lot of people I feel didn't really know this was there and if you walked back a little bit You Came Upon there's galleries of memorabilia and photos from the early days of Walt Disney World. There was a little theater you could watch old cartoons and nobody was ever in there and I I was always in there saying this should be an attraction. You should be on the list as a fast passage, right? Cuz it was so neat and if you had any Well from the sense of if you had any interest in history of Disney or fan this this was I always felt a must place to go cuz you got a glimpse of how everything started off and got to see other part grew through over the years but more than that though because nobody really knew it was there and never visited you really had that all to yourself pretty much any time you went back inside. So that checks off the get out of the Florida Sun list on your on your list, but it is, you know, is air conditioned it was inside. There's nobody there. You could stay home as long as you want. There was no, you know path you had to go through you could Meander and look at exhibit sit down and watch a cartoon take a break and that was one of my places to go cuz not only could relax and get away from it all but it was for that Disney fan. This was such a great place to visit there was so much to see and learn there. But again, he had it all to yourself. So what could be better and I miss it dead. I miss it terribly I do too and but there's other places you can go which will get yeah and Town Square theater and it wasn't until it became the meet-and-greet off. Yeah. Well it really sort of became the Town Square theater around 2011 when I replaced the Walt Disney story and that at the time it was the Town Square Exposition Hall. I was actually two theaters in the back and then at one point one of them was closed and Waldorf. Do you remember there used to be the hand painted mural of the hundred plus Disney characters back there. They yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but you're right. Yeah. No, I remember there was one trip. I I missed doing this. Actually, I didn't even think of this were on my list but public places why you want to get away and chill? This trip was I brought a Sketchbook down with me and I was just doing a lot of sketching and drawing of of anything and I remember being in there and that was one of the great things I sat there and all the characters are there. So I'm like schedule the characters of my little book, but it was great you're sitting there and nobody's there. You're in that you're in that Disney Art mode. It's really it was really cool. Yeah, and they used to show a variety of shorts and not the short movies + package films. Like I think for some reason I have this memory of seeing the legend of Ichabod and mr. Toad in there at one point and it was just it was it was not a time thing. The theater was just open you could sort of come and go at your leisure. That was the best part and there's a few of these on well pretty much everything on this list, I guess by definition of stuff, you know, but you could just walk into there's no you have to get a FastPass or so schedule time. There's no show you have to wait like it's a great place about all of these things. I'm sure we're going to talk about going anytime you want job? Stay as long as you want, you know, so it was really cool. Yeah. Yeah, the one the Walt Disney story was there and I think we talked about this on a show. We did like a Wayback machine to nineteen seventy-three. When the Walt Disney story was there I loved it because obviously told the story of Walt and there there was that sort of Mini U Museum that was in there and then and that for over the years actually became the the welcome center for the anniversary. There was also the preview area for Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios later on and then off there was also Hoot Gibson Gibson the owl when he was talking about the Western River expedition that was supposed to be coming later on in the eighties and then it became an Epcot film later.

"To rock. That's listen pantsless is usually the way things happen around here. So okay after all these years. It's it's how I'm happy to see you finally getting on board wage. I'm I'm learning. I'm learning from The Mask. It's a slow. It's a slow burn but I get it. But listen I am I am very excited about this and admittedly and I'm saying cuz cuz it was my idea but I love this idea because we've done shows in the past fifteen years about going solo to Walt Disney World and I I like personally especially as a local. I love going to the parks and being alone and quiet and out of the way and I don't necessarily always get a chance wage. Do that and I look I start off every show talking about sitting back relaxing Etc. And while I don't get to personally do it much. I do sometimes like to do it off when I'm in the Walt Disney World parks and Resorts and and I and Tim I think for a lot of people especially because of the fact that there is so much to do and I do have a finite amount of time a lot of people often don't want to or are afraid to maybe even don't know how to slow down when they're on a wall vacation due in part because I think they're afraid they're going to miss something right? I don't have time to just sit and relax because I should be doing X or I could be doing all these other things. Well on one hand. Yes, you could be missing something and probably for everything on my list. I'm trying to member as I did them when I had those pangs of guilt like dude, you shouldn't be sitting here. You should be in line going to these attractions cuz you paid for this trip, but sometimes that being alone and relaxing is the engine area if that makes sense when you can take advantage of it and appreciate everything around you no matter where you are, but we'll go all over the place. I'm sure but yeah, and and I agree with 1% and I think sometimes it's hard to do that right now. It's hard to turn that off and to that end. Sometimes you need one of these quiet spots off possibly to work because sometimes you just you physically cannot get away from it all and especially when you know you and it all is your business, right and your business exists and lives now dead. In our pockets with our phones, I understand especially if you own your own business, you know, or have a something where you are quote unquote on call there are sometimes wage do need to get away from the hustle and the bustle and the you know, the sound of the parade music behind you and find some of these quiet spots to get some work done. I know look even even when I wasn't a local there were times they would come down here and be working on a book or an audio tour and I just needed some places that were quiet to go and work and we're going to incorporate some of those places as well not just to get away and relax but get away and get some work done too. Yeah. I try to think of the get away and do some work schedule when I was picking out my ideas. I'm not sure if this is on your list, so I won't know I remember back in the days the little Nuance to that was the quest to find an outlet off. That kind of thing. So there's there's one that came to mind right away, but it was more about now. Let's say cuz it was more your place that you took me too, but it was more about not so much that it was the quiet place to get some work done cuz I think we did some recording at the time but it that was back in the day when that was the only Outlet in all of the Magic Kingdom. You could find so Tim. I I hate see how times change I hate to tell the story but I will and it will show just anyway take from the story when you will there was a time that I was working for a family business that we had sold and and we were just in the middle of this transition to you know, a a corporate environment and I was the chief technology officer for the company, but I had a a planned vacation to come down and do some work and I'll never forget being in Disney's Animal Kingdom and being told that morning that I had to be on the job. Conference call at 3:00, whatever time it was and I needed to go and find a payphone dial. Yeah, and I found what I thought was the song wildest Payphone in Disney's Animal Kingdom, which is near where the current Starbucks is. There's also the the the first aid station Etc is back there used to be a bank of phones. So nobody knew where I was I dialed in and I tried to keep my hands or covering the mouthpiece kids. You can Google what a pay phone looks like an edge as I'm standing there pretending to, you know be engrossed in this meeting the Disney's Animal Kingdom Christmas parade starts coming by with a shuttle the music and the floats and I'm like covering them covering the microphone like this and I'm trying to and that's really what I realized that I needed to leave that job immediately and moved down to Florida which in fact I did so there you go. Yeah, some people would have taken that as I really need to find a quiet place so I can do my job but what the other way right I was like this is not going to get out of this page. I like I like so before we get into our our actual, you know, what makes for I was trying to think what are sort of the requisite elements for a good quiet place right now. I was sort of trying to figure out as assembling my list and for me, there's really three point one. There's only three main things with a an optional bonus as well. I think one the place needs to be quiet and don't necessarily say quiet places Tim. I don't think we necessarily mean isolated but really be a place that is at least Serene. I tried to find places that had seating and there's various levels of comfort. Some benchers are not quite as comfortable as some home. Couches, I think you need shade from the Florida sun which beats down on you about 361 days out of the year. And in a perfect world is not perfect. Lou Monticello world. My good quiet place should also involve be close to or have at least food accessible to it you he's going to say food or an electric outlet. But I knew you were going to go I usually bring my car. I usually I try to go look at a lot. Yeah, I do. I do try and bring at least two months back up portable chargers, but all those things you put all those things together if there's food it's like Zen and Nirvana. It's all just there in in one pack. I feel like for you if you only got I gather food was the point one correct requisite item on your list, but I think if you had the point one and nothing else, you would still be a happy camper. Oh, yeah, I could miss them. Right, I could work at The Boathouse. No problem. No sweat. Sure. I was going sorry got no. I was going through my list same thing you and I realized how long this down quickly enough addressing different reasons. You want to get away whether it's you just want to get away and relax whether you need to get some work done to make that phone call them or you're hungry but you need a you know, that kind of thing. So they really fell into different categories quite an interesting exercise.

"It's time for our birth. Disney World trivia question of the week right invite you to test your knowledge of Walt Disney World History or to see how well you pay attention to the details, which you see here taste to remember if you think you know the answer you can enter via our online form for a chance to win Disney Prize Package, of course before we get to this week's question. We're going to go back review last week's and select our winner. So last week's question was a salute to all Pavilions in World Showcase, but mostly Japan because in that Pavilion which yes is my favorite. There was a gift that was given to Walt Disney World specifically wrong Disney from the emperor of Japan and his gift was originally located at the Polynesian but was moved to Epcot when it opened. I asked you to tell me what items in the Pavilion Was that gift so first thank you and congratulations to everyone who entered and got this one, correct and knew that the answer is a Japanese Lantern or a Toro not just a quick history when Emperor Hirohito of Japan visited Disneyland in nineteen seventy-five. He was given as a gift a Mickey Mouse watch which became one of his most prized possessions in 1979. It stopped ticking. He approves very concerned. They brought an American watch experts to fix it. It was actually reported in the times. Of course. It was just discovered that all it needed was a new battery, but Demonstrated just how important Disney was to the emperor and really the friendship and the relationship that he had with not just the company but really with Roy Disney himself and because of that friendship and life because the emperor eventually wanted to have a Disney park in Japan when Walt Disney World open the emperor gave a gift of this Stone Lantern known as a Toro during the dedication of the Magic Kingdom Choi not to be clear. This Stone Lantern is actually on a pedestal. It's about probably seven eight feet tall switch quite large after the Magic Kingdom open. It was moved to the off-season Village Resort. And then once Epcot open, it was moved to the Japan pavillion and placed in the Rock Garden just across from the entrance to the Mitchell cozy department store. Now the Lantern and it's designed not as significant not just because of what has on it. For example, the deer on the lantern is representation of the Nara Deer Park in Japan, but the lantern really is meant to light the way to success for Thursday. And specifically Walt Disney World. Oh, by the way, obviously, we know that Japan did in fact get their Park after they signed a contract back in 1979 to build Tokyo Disneyland, but I took off the correct entries randomly selected one. And again last week you were playing for not just all of my digital products, which is my hundred and two ways to save money for not Walt Disney World Book all 7 of my virtual audio walking tours of the history secrets and stories of Magic Kingdom both by the way still a man available at the shop at wwe.com.

"Off like go back I encourage everyone find videos of this watch it because it's just everything is like, it can't get more amazing than that. It can't get more unbelievable than that song. And every one of them does every act that came out there for this futuristic circus is just more wild than the last lest. We forget the Willie real destination. Like it was and the Daredevil circus look spectacular could almost warrant its own show because there was so much to it off, right? So when you went to the elephants they were called Martian mastodons. I don't know why Disney felt that they had to sort of like sci-fi and space up everything that they did but I think and again we can almost go into a much longer description of it. But if you want to go and watch the video and understand why this very much has to be on the list, I think as we we age our way out from Epcot, I think what all of these things do and look there's other things that we can add in into this list to I think there's a few other things that could probably watch Just but but I think what it indicates is that they never really they really had a tough time trying to figure out what Epcot was and was supposed to be and what they wanted it to be and I think that they this was very much a trial-and-error idea that really wiser was going through because they wanted it to not be Magic Kingdom, but they wanted to obviously they had to inject something in there to make it less educational more entertaining and sort of this combining this idea of of edutainment. So, you know, maybe my Clash like, you know, we need it here. We need a circus. They tried it and Disneyland it did not certainly work there. Let's try it here, but we'll make it futuristic and Spacey and just give it all sort of scientific names but even things like the Christos and and some of the the you know, the parade route. Shows I think it was very much. Like Epcot was very much a an experiment and a lot of these things really were just meant to be trial and error a lot of trial whole bunch of error, but it does prove that there's always been some things out of place and everyone wants to say that everything is all a shambles and the Epcot purists of today, but there's always been a little wage going on and yeah. Yeah, and I'm sure there's things that we missed too. So if there's something in Epcot or Magic Kingdom that we skipped and you're like wait a minute don't you guys remember hand which has were weird but they were awesome. But don't you remember X, please email me? Let me know Lou at w w.com or will continue this conversation in the group over on Facebook at ww.w Community, but let's move from the futuristic and wild and wacky non-serious justic Epcot Center over to the Disney MGM Studios wage. Where this is I think the place we're going to mention some names and some intellectual properties, you know, no, no. No, you've got that confused that's going to suck for part one of our look at things. We just can't believe actually happened in Walt Disney World who would have guessed that there had been so much in just Magic Kingdom and Epcot off if you think things are wacky in those two parks. Just wait till we get to Disney's Hollywood Studios, and then outside the park. Please make sure and tune in next week and share your thoughts comments. Your memories about week's show in the WWE Clubhouse on Facebook and by calling.

"Of years. You would have a number of different performing groups the kids of Kingdom sometimes other job. Of outside local bands would actually come in and perform as well and at one point pre cosmic ray pre Michael Iceberg. There was actually the Scat Cat Jazz Band and if you remember from the Aristocats, there were three of the cats English cat was on the dragon the Scat Cat was one of the performers and the Italian cat was there as well and they would perform different songs. I think not just necessarily from the Aristocats, but I know obviously everybody wants to be a cat was in there as well. And if I remember correctly, it looked like these fir characters were performing on live instruments, but they weren't but I do think there was also there may have been live performers with them as well. So it was like part concert part meet-and-greets dead. once again in the plaza Pavilion and that sort of Tomorrowland Terrace area Yeah for the picture I've seen it looks like the one cat at least was sitting behind a set of drums. So he was at least pretending to say oceans. Yeah. Well, I have to go with one in Tomorrowland as well and it actually could kind of segue into Epcot if you're if you want to move on have caught after this, but I'm going to go with Galaxy search wage that took place in from from 1994 to 98 and I actually have very Vivid memories of the show because it starred a giant dinosaur robot and this took place at the Galaxy Palace Theater, which would have been between Buzz Lightyear and the Carousel of Progress today. It's just boarded over them. But this was like think Star Search. It was Mickey hosting a show with all of the Fab Five and friends that each had their own alien act that would join them. So Donald Pluto mini they each did one one of the alien acts was like these two or three headed poodle sisters that would come out and seeing that very funky, you know fit very well with the Tomorrowland 94 interplanetary type theme but Goofy's act that joined him was wage King and it was kind of alluded to through the whole show cuz you hear this growling happening offstage goofy would say he's getting hungry. He wants to go on. Everyone's wondering who is this character and finally went to school turn up from the the right side of the stage not even part of the stage, but behind like a facade or something think behind where Buzz Lightyear's up comes this page three or four story robot Dino with an Elvis impersonator like the white sequin e costume collar thing with the dog. I care and go near glasses and he would sing. You know how he wanted to be your love and teddy bear and and and there would be smoke behind it and it that the king dinosaur was stuck in my memory, but he that was actually not his first appearance. He was used in another interesting show em up guy as well. I forgot about Galaxy search. It's you know, it's funny. I thought well, I thought I had a pretty comprehensive list as I was doing my you know, my mental brain, but you're right well, and I don't want to sort of steal your thunder for what I know is going to be your connective tissue between this and and and Epcot off. But yeah, I mean and if you remember the Galaxy Palace Theater, which is where this open-air theater, which is now sort of closed off in between buzz and Carousel products. That's also where they performed Mickey's Twas the Night Before Christmas Disney World as your world magic music days. Were there Night of Joy was there disneymania? Is there all of which I think could certainly be added to this list as well? I'm trying to think if the totally mini show was there to the totally many show was another sort of wacky mid-80s home. Show that was like eighty six I think was the was what they Disney declared 1986 is going to be the year of Minnie Mouse and there was they were really trying to bring many home a lot more towards the Forefront. They had redesigned her a lot. They had borrowed they had made her very eighties by borrowing a lot of design elements from current pop stars and they gave her the job of being a pop star and it was all about Synergy back then so they had a totally mini album and she see if she actually sang her own versions and covers of hey Mickey like the Tony Basile song and let's get together by the Sherman Brothers and like Daisy Duck and clarabel there and there was this totally mini song and dance review in Magic Kingdom. There was a one-hour TV special on NBC, which they unfortunately don't do any more down. I'm Suzanne Somers. It's now screaming in nineteen eighty-eight and Robert Carradine from Back to the Future Fame was Maxwell dweeb who was a nerd who was being taught. He was he was he was teaching a nerd how to be cool. So it was tying into the whole back to the it was very weird. It was very backward and I'm wondering if that's where the Tomorrowland I think that's where where this one totally minute this totally many song and dance review and little mini truck out show was happening while in order to tie in with the TV special and the album and everything else that was going on in this whole synergistic world. Do you also remember the Mickey's Starland afternoon show so when Mickey's Birthday land was retired this temporary land it was only supposed to be there for six months was so popular it became Mickey's Starland again screaming eighties and they had this show that featured characters from the Disney Afternoon, like DuckTales tailspin gummy bear Rescue Rangers Darkwing Duck Goof Troop and Bonkers and this took place again. It's hard to even sort of picture where I am. Now sort of near where the judges tent is now in Mickey's Birthday land slash Starland slash Toontown again where it was a very this was a great easy opportunity to bring in office the Synergy from Disney Channel and Disney afternoon before we get to Epcot. I've got a mention not one not two three, but three things off. Tom at the Pooh the Winnie the Pooh presidential campaign and made me think about the America on parade parade, which was this again. It took place in the mid seventies around the year time of the bicentennial if I almost can't describe it accurately enough you almost need to add Google on the YouTube a video of the America on Parade. It was very inspiring it was very patriotic. But there were a lot of these very large fricassee looking will connect this to Epcot to walk around puppet type characters that were looking back exceptionally bizarre. If you think those pictures of the early Mickey walk-around characters at Disneyland from the fifties were crazy in America on Parade says, I've got something to show you and I just have to very quickly mention the birth. Celebrations at well does this was specifically the 15th and 25th and 15th? I can't believe whatever happened because when it turned fifteen years old, once again, they had a ABC now it was a 15th birthday celebration show. It was hosted by Bea Arthur and Betty White who clearly just lives forever and it featured the Monkees Air Supply a manual Lewis like Webster was on there and they had not this just this special but they also had not one but two specials on the Disney Channel they had magic celebration live and they also had Walt Disney World a dream come true. That was really cool because it focused on which we don't really see very much anymore except now on on Disney plus with the imagineering story. It was really about the history of the resort off. Was a tour of the current Resorts and also gave a sneak peek at what was to come like Pleasure Island MGM Studios and the Norway Pavilion in Epcot. But the reason may I add this to the I can't believe it ever happened list was because not just that they have the of course, you know celebratory, you know parade but they also gave out prizes every 15 seconds. So right outside the entrance to Magic Kingdom, there were these clocks that would ring every 15 seconds in every time a gas went through the turnstile. They would receive a ticket and I could still remember seeing it was yellow and had sort of Blackish blue typed out writing on it and would let you know if you want anything and you could get like hats and buttons and visors and tee shirts and you could also get free tickets to the park and you could also win a car and I'm home. These 7.86% sure it was sponsored by GM or Chevrolet at the time. So you were able to win like one of those sweet new Chevy Blazers just bought going to Disney World. Yeah, the 15th was my first anniversary celebration was the 20th but the 25th you bring up a vividly remember the 25th and the year before we were there when the castle was half pink and we walked in and were like what is happening? And I remember my mom saying that can't be primer consider like primer for what but then when we return the next year we were all in I mean we felt bad for young people if that was their one and only trip to Disney World and they don't get the classic Castle picture. I understand those feelings, but if you go back on the wdw radio blog you will find Walt Disney World confirm. And in My Confession is I loved the castle cake. I mean I was the perfect age for that thing it it was just like imagination brought to life for me as a kid and I had a t-shirt with the cake on it and everything. I mean, I'm I'm surprised there are still people that don't know that it happened because it's just such a controversial issue but I'm always surprised when someone is like, what they painted the castle pink well, and I want to know who was the person that walked into a meeting was like guys. I've got a great idea. We're not going to paint the castle pink but we're going to add on all of these little accoutrements to make it look like there is jelly beans and candy and candy canes and all these things on it put a big 25 on there and look it up put sprinkles on it and we're going to ruin everybody's pictures for the next eighteen months it again sometime. Love it. Some people very much. It was affectionately known to many as the Pepto-Bismol cake because the choice of color very much reminded people of the guy color of Pepto Bismol, but they wanted to really celebrate it in a way that was going to be very impactful and it was because I think it was so divisive for six people. I think some people were very upset going there. I'm almost as well. Whatever. I'll tell a story one day on the live on a Wednesday night live show about my experience with the bulb in castle cake and why it was the kiss of why doing parts of the pink castle cake. I almost didn't visit Walt Disney World for a long time like more than a year, but I thought there were some people that liked it. I think it was not just the pink but I think it was all of these they had these like inflatable extensions on to, Georgia. Carrots and stuff that almost I mean again, it was made to look not like a castle but more like a cake, but they did do it took a little funny when when one of them would start to lose a little air in the afternoon and it can handle it start to droop or it's funny because I actually saw someone yesterday who suck shared on Twitter. Someone was selling pieces of the inflatable. Everyone was questioning whether or not they were real but they had like pieces of the inflatable icing on eBay and I'm sure that there's a collector that wants it off, but they also I mean did some cool things for the anniversary to you were able to get guest of honor badges you could go to what was at the time the Walt Disney story and the disneyana store which was wage. You wouldn't go to City Hall was the opposite side. We're currently the Mickey and princess meet-and-greet are in by Tony's and you can get a guest of honor badge and they would give you a sticker that would log. Mark the first year that you went or you can get a special one. If you were a first-time visitor and the guest of honor and you could also get I think you also got the free took the graph when you registered and the lithograph did not have the pancake fortunately had the blue one and it had it had this it almost looked like this song Gold Leaf type outline with characters in it of Disney characters and said Walters World 25th anniversary on it and they also had a film called Chef Mickey's was Mickey's magical workshop and was at Sorcerer Mickey in there as well that also gave people a sneak peek of our upcoming projects cuz for a long time over the years, this was where the Walter's World preview Center where you'd be able to go and see Epcot and how they would do. It just showed Disney Cruise Line and a model of wage. Disney's Animal Kingdom and he's also buy some sort of like early like preview merch there as well. So I mean they really in addition to the cake. They did a lot of other cool stuff. They did monorail wraps a lot of 25th anniversary items. I'll I'll help you bridge over to Epcot. They did have a new illuminations version called a illuminations twenty-five and different state shows and things like that. But I think when you think of the anniversaries, the first thing that comes to mind for people is to cash. Okay, I'm going to post a question in the clubhouse on Facebook. I want to know we're going to do a poll. Did you love the Cake Boss? Did you hate the cake and see where people lie I have to see if I can dig out a picture of myself with the castle cake shirt on I just want to stare 56. That's all that's focused. Okay. So are we ready to make the jump to have, I feel like we can stay in Magic Kingdom forever we could but let's move make our way over. Okay, so wait, I take that back. Hold on a second. I take the last thing I want to add very quickly. How can I forget about this we talked about places to eat we talked about things to Disney characters. We saw shows parades. We didn't include any places to shop Deer and I think I have to include things. You can't believe do you remember when there was an antique stores in Liberty Square So currently we're yield Christmas shop is there was the old world antique store and they were like real antiques like they were big pieces of furniture and tables and grandfather clocks and brass and pewter and copper and while some were were reproductions there was a lot of one-of-a-kind Antiques and they were actually people that would work for the company that would Travel Country finding, you know, Colonial China and vintage clothing and the cost of the items would range not just from a few dollars in in, you know name. In 70s money, but thousands of dollars like when they go to Walt Disney World. What do you want to bring back Mom? I brought you back this colonial dining set. Where should we put it but the one thing that was unique about it wage every time you went you'd always find something different and if there wasn't that you wanted you should get it when you saw it because wouldn't necessarily be there the next time you went and then next door. We know with Johnny Tremain silversmith shop and the next to that was Mademoiselle lafitte's perfumery that created the custom perfumes. You could go in pick out all of the different types of sense that you wanted and Disney would mix them into really almost an infant number of combinations and then you would have your individual formulas record in a book. So if you went back or dad or brother your husband would ever came back years later you or they could say hey, I'm here to get Kendall's formula, you know 1971 dead. Would remake it for you cuz at your own unique scent and then you could also buy, you know atomizers and bottles and and other sort of regular off-the-shelf Brands, but you went from really creating a truly unique souvenir for somebody go in and create your own brand of perfume. I can imagine kids going in and no put more of that in just keep on adding that and you know, Mom would have thought at least pretend that you liked how nice it's yeah. I mean you bringing that up. I think you almost have to I mean we can just mention them by name but a lot of the Main Street shops that existed for a while to like on Center Street and you know things like the new century clock shop and the Hallmark card shop and the Wonderland of wax and just the flowers candles and yeah like the game house and Main Street Bookshop and even some of the ones that you know for some of us maybe there are more Vivid memories, but for others may be would be surprised by like the penny arcade even I mean, I remember going to a gym. RK but there might for a lot of people that might be kind of, you know something they're entirely missed on or maybe they just kind of have vague memories of seeing those like the moving-picture machines and things like that were in the penny arcade. I spent a lot of time and a lot of quarters in the arcade on Main Street. So let's go over to Epcot cuz if you think stuff got weird and Magic Kingdom wage, yeah epcot's the president of weird and the eighties and nineties. Yeah to make that transition. Let's go back to talking about the giant dinosaur robot off and he was not created for Galaxy search. He was created for a show called.

"walt disney world" Discussed on The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station

"Name is Michael Iceberg. And he performed in Walt Disney World. And he also performed in Disneyland just to give you a little bit of background page. Michael Iceberg was a classically trained pianist started learning piano around age four went to a little school called Julliard and somehow ended up in retail music sales was not able to do you know everything that he wanted to with this but he became fascinated by this new keyboard and synthesizer technology wage was coming really into Vogue in the mid-seventies, you know, early eighties and what he did was he programmed a lot of these machines himself and he actually would gather parts and sounds from all of these different non musical areas and bring them to start creating music and from what I understand he wage. Was playing in a bar near the Disney Studios in California where a number of artists would go in they were incredibly entertained by him. They kept on going back to the studios to the higher-ups thing. You've got to hear this guy and eventually got them to come into the bar and he was offered an entertainment gig in Tomorrowland in Disneyland. Eventually came over to Walt Disney World and he was Michael Iceberg and the incredible Iceberg machine and he played in the Tomorrowland Terrace, which is currently on a cosmic rays Starlight Cafe, and this Iceberg machine was This incredibly large and complicated multi keyboard type instrument that he developed by combining all of these different synthesizers to create a very unique musical style and he gathered all this technology into what would become this almost pyramid like structure that Iceberg kind of confined himself in and it was this wild cacophony of music and sounds but he was as much of a performer as the music that he was playing he would stop in between songs off and describe what the machine was and how it people together and how he programmed it and there's all these lights and fog machines that happening again, very eighties ish wage. Described him the things that he gathered and cobbled together from flea markets and washing machine parts and would play songs that were familiar things like the William Tell Overture and Main Street Electrical Parade theme in a different Disney songs. If you go back and find some of the videos and almost sounds like the beginning of stranger things like that weird eighties type of sense, but the guy was wacky man. He was like then I took effect that he was whacked out of his mind. No two shows were every ever the same and you can tell that Disney really gave him and this was was something that I thought was interesting was that they gave him a lot of creative freedom in terms of not necessarily have to scripting the two script out every part of his show. It was this poem very stream of crazy Consciousness that that Michael would do. But what I think it did do to Kendall is it probably got a lot of kids song Listed in music and synthesizers. And again, I don't want to take anything. The guy was a instill as a remarkably talented and gifted not just pianist and composer but singer as well what I thought was really interesting when I went back and watched one of the videos too is as part of the the big Iceberg apparatus there were mirrors up above his head angled down so you could actually see him playing all the different buttons and keys and everything that were on it and was this odd because I never saw this in person but was this at the same time when the stage in there would rise up? Yeah, so he would yeah he would and he come up again amidst this, you know, very easy 70s 80s type, you know lights and fog and smoke and stuff is so it made a very dramatic and grand entrance. Yeah. I mean, it's definitely different kind of music a.m. Is kind of crazy like in a way that like when you listen to stomp or something like it's it's you know, the ability to take all these different sounds and everything and make music out of it and you kind of live off for a while and you think okay what's going on here and then you pick up like, you know, he's playing when you wish upon a star or something, but it's not like a typical Melody. It's just all these different things coming together to somehow make that music. Yeah, I I always found it very I mean think Michael Iceberg was very much an attraction in and of himself. Well, my mom next one, I'm going to stick with some entertainment but I'm going to go the opposite side of the Magic Kingdom over to frontierland. And this was a very Deja Vu moment for me. The one time we were walking through. I mean within the last decade walking through frontierland and I I think we might have even I don't know my husband's known for enjoying corn dogs, which we recently found out. They don't have them are corn dogs at the frontier land car anymore. That's side note but a travesty so we're standing there by the cart the corn dog cart and I'm looking across the way at rooftops and I think to myself I I remember something being here. I remember watching and then I thought know that I'm like I swear I read Four guys shooting in each other on the rooftops and no Disney wouldn't let there be like a shootout in the park and so very recently I thought was looking through some old Disney World ephemera. I had and I had an old times guide that I got minis autograph on and I opened it up and lo and behold in there it listed the frontier lands nutshell. So upon doing some more research. I found out I was not crazy. And in fact, there was a stunt show that took place several times a day throughout frontierland and it was the Marshall and Cactus Jack Slade and his partner Cody and then a character that they just called stupid kid. Ted Cactus Jack and Cody clearly annoyed with with.
