Len Testa & Jim Hill kick off a brand-new walk-thru of WDW's Magic Kingdom by exploring Main Street, U.S.A. This tour starts off with an update on that theater project which Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek first revealed at 2017's D23 Expo. Len & Jim then discuss how the redo of this theme park's Central Plaza didn't go quite as the Imagineers had hoped.


Over the course of this podcast, listeners will learn about:
How -- in order to make it easier for the Main Street Trolley to get around the Magic Kingdom -- Cast Members regularly grease the tracks of this turn-of-the-century transportation system
Why Disney changed the way that holiday wreaths are displayed along Main Street, U.S.A.
The difference between the way WDW's pyrotechnicians sets up their shells when a TV special is being shot in the Magic Kingdom versus when a fireworks display is being presented to Guests
Why the Crystal Palace was ultimately dropped as a possible location for this theme park's Club 33
Which Main Street, U.S.A. quick service restaurant has a 90% satisfaction rating (Hint: It serves Starbucks Coffee)
