As Len Testa & Jim Hill conclude their 2018 walk-thru of WDW’s Magic Kingdom, they discuss many of the changes that have been made to Tomorrowland over the past few years. The topics covered included the U.S. version of Shanghai Disneyland’s TRON Lightcycle Power Run Coaster as well as what WDI possibly has in the works to replace “Stitch’s Great Escape.”


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

How ticket sales for “Ralph Breaks the Internet” will help determine whether an attraction based on this Rich Moore / Phil Johnston film will be added anytime soon to Tomorrowland

The various challenges that the Imagineers have faced during the construction phase of the Magic Kingdom’s new TRON coaster attraction

How the decorative mechanical palm trees that were “planted” as part of Tomorrowland’s 1994 “The Future That Never Was” redo influenced the design of WDW’s soon-to-be-installed shade structures

The lessons that The Walt Disney Company learned from Disneyland’s 50th anniversary celebration that are now being applied to the prep for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration

How Jean Shepherd’s passing back in October of 1999 complicates WDI’s plans to update the finale scene in “Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress”
