Len Testa & Jim Hill start things off by talking about what The Walt Disney Company is expected to unveil/announce at this year’s D23 Expo. Len then shares a rumor that he recently heard about an Osborne Lights-like experience that’s supposedly in the works for World Showcase


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

How ABC – on the heels of the success of Jimmy Kimmel’s “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” – is considering turning that one-shot TV special into an annual programming event for that network

How your trip back to Orlando International Airport aboard Disney’s Magical Express and/or a Minnie Van may soon include a highlight reel of your WDW vacation

How “Disney Shorts: Launch Incubator” will basically allow Walt Disney Animation Studios to use Disney+ as a farm team for budding directors & filmmakers

How Euro Disneyland’s search for an affordable way to celebrate the 1993 holiday season led to the “Light of Winter” debuting at Epcot the following year

Conversely, how guest complaints about being able to get a clear shot of DLP’s Sleeping Beauty Castle led to that theme park’s “Lights of Winter” being replaced with another seasonal display, the Princess Chandeliers
