It's a special listener mail edition of the Disney Dish podcast. Len Testa & Jim Hill start things off by discussing the history of Epcot's Garden Railway. They then reveal Joffrey's wound up at the specialty coffee & tea provider for Disney Parks & Resorts. Len then shares a bunch of patents that The Walt Disney Company recently filed and speculates on how all of this cutting-edge technology may be employed as part of "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge."


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

* Which international pavilion the Imagineers originally wanted to build on that expansion pad between Italy & Germany

* What happens to the G-scale trains that run through Epcot's Garden Railway while "Illuminations" is going on

* Why Nestle's $2-million-a-year sponsorship deal really slowed down the updating of Future World's The Land pavilion back in the 1990s

* How the significant number of visitors to the Disney Parks & Resorts whose primary language isn't English are impacting WDI's design choices

* Why the upcoming Marvelization of "Rock 'n' Roller Coaster" at Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris may mean for Disney's Hollywood Studios' version of that thrill ride.
