Len Testa starts off this week’s episode by talking about his recent visit to Takumi-Tei (i.e., the signature restaurant that just opened at Epcot’s Japan pavilion) and the extraordinary experience he had while dining there. Jim Hill then looks back at the history of WDW’s convention facilities.


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

Why foodies who enjoy dining at Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are really going to love Takumi-Tei

How the décor choice at the Grand Destino Tower kind of undermine the ultimate goal of this ambitious expansion of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Why Disney’s Contemporary Resort wound up playing a role in the Watergate scandal

How Disney World almost wound up with two nighttime entertainment districts

Where we may see DVC expansion after the construction of “Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge” is completed in 2022
