Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about which WDW Resorts will be re-opening over the next three months. They also look back at the horticultural challenges that Disneyland Park faced less than 10 days from its grand opening back in July of 1955

Show Notes are here:


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

Why -- if you’re planning on visiting WDW’s Magic Kingdom -- you should definitely have an early dinner

What words & phrases to listen for if you want to play the Jim Hill drinking game (coffee only, please)

Why -- if you’re planning on staying late at Epcot -- you should probably plan on taking a bus back to your WDW Resort rather than hopping aboard the Skyliner

Who came to Jack & Bill Evans’ rescue when planting fell far behind schedule at Walt’s family fun park

How many times a year is the Floral Mickey in front of Disneyland Park’s train typically replanted/refreshed
