Len Testa & Jim Hill kick off this week's show by talking about how EPCOT will be expanding its International Festival of the Arts to seven days a week in 2019. They then discuss those "Rehire James Gunn" billboards that have been erected outside of the Disney Parks & Anaheim. Len & Jim also contrast Disneyland Park's plan to handle the crowds for "Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge" with the way Disney's Hollywood Studios is thinking about having Guests queue up for this 14-acre land.


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

* How "Outdoor Kitchens" or "Food Studios" that allow Guests to see their food being prepared actually do better business than similar sorts of kiosks at Epcot

* Why Epcot's "Journey into Imagination with Figment" offers the Imagineers the same sorts of creative challenges that updating Tomorrowland & Future World does

* How the ripple effect of letting James Gunn has now forced Disney Studios to seriously consider reviving the "Pirates of the Caribbean" film franchise

* Why Disney's decision to push back the release of the "Jungle Cruise" movie from October 2019 to July of 2020 is making the folks at Sony Pictures very, very happy

* Why Walt Disney Animation Studios' decision to produce a feature length version of "Tarzan" prevented the "Jungle Cruise" ride from being transformed into a "George of the Jungle Cruise" ride
