Len Testa & Jim Hill continue their walk-thru of WDW’s Magic Kingdom by exploring the colonial corner of this theme park. As they head towards the Hall of Presidents, Len & Jim talk about the stylized open sewer that the Imagineers inserted in this land. They also talk about why the Haunted Mansion’s interactive queue has had trouble connected with international visitors to this Resort.


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

How deciding to add the Star Wars hotel to WDW’ version of “Galaxy’s Edge” late in the game derailed WDI’s plans to fold a “Great Moments in History starring the Muppets” -like show into the entertainment line-up over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Why making many of the souvenirs sold at Momento Mori instagrammable has really paid off for the WDW Resort

How the walk-around character collection at WDW’s Magic Kingdom now included Haunted Mansion fan favorites like Constance (i.e., the Bride from the Attic) and the Tight Rope Girl from the Stretching Room

Why the Diamond Horseshoe Theater is rarely used as a theater these days and – more often than not – is only open at Thanksgiving & Christmas these days when the Park then need additional places where it can serve seasonal meals

Why it’s highly unlikely that the set pieces that Guests can be seen from the Mark Twain Steamboat as they cruise around the Rivers of America will be updated in time for WDW’s 50th anniversary celebration
