Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about Disney’s Riveria Resort (which recently began accepting reservations for stays beginning on December 16th). They also discuss Anaheim’s “Project Stardust,” which is being done out ahead of the opening of the Disneyland Park version of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge”


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

How Disney Parks & Resorts is looking to position WDW’s new Riveria Resort as “ … the Grand Floridian South”

How the view from Toppolino’s Terrace (i.e., the Riveria’s rooftop restaurant) may force the Imagineers to make some cosmetic tweaks to World Showcase’s back-of-house areas

How the Hippocratic Oath factored into the way that Disneyland management approached “Project Stardust” at that theme park

Why – out ahead of the opening of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” – it was necessary to redo the queues of “it’s a small world” and the Matterhorn Bobsleds (which are located on the other side of Disneyland Park).

The crucial role that the Disneyland Resort’s retail team played in the unclogging the streets of Adventureland
