Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by listing the nighttime shows which will soon be returning to the WDW Resort. They then look back at many of the concepts for Mickey Mouse-based rides, shows & attractions that never quite made it off of WDI’s drawing board

Show Notes:


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:
How are WDW Cast Members dealing with the sky-rocketing cost of housing in & around Orlando

Which B & W Mickey Mouse short from the 1930s (which the Studio then remade in color seven years later) did Walt want to turn into an attraction for his family fun parks

Why was Audio-Animatronics the perfect medium for the Imagineers to use when staging “The Hall of Presidents”

Which Disneyland attraction began traveling “ … twice as far and at twice the speed” in the Summer of 1961

Just how heavy were those initial character costumes that John Hench designed for the Parks
