On this episode, listeners will learn about: Why Jamon Ibérico is ridiculously expensive but still worth every penny How far behind schedule Disney Springs’ NBA Experience appears to be Why this Summer’s re-opening of “Rafiki’s Planet Watch” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom doesn’t necessarily mean that a “Zootopia” -themed redo isn’t still in the works for this part of that theme park How the new “Awesome Planet” movie that’ll be debuting in Future World’s The Land pavilion is all part of WDW’s plan to increase Epcot’s overall capacity out ahead of the kick-off of the Resort’s 50th anniversary in 2021 Why building a theme park that’s only made up of immersive, highly themed lands may not be the smartest fiscal decision in the long run


Len Testa starts off with an enthusiastic review of Disney Spring’s latest addition, Jaleo by José Andrés.
Len & Jim then share a survey that Universal Parks & Resorts is using to zero in on just the right mix of rides, shows & attractions for Theme Park No. 4 (i.e., Universal’s Fantastic Worlds)
