Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show with an update on WDW’s Skyliner system as well as offering some additional info on that resort’s pricey new “World of Dreams” tour. Len also shares some stories from the Monsanto corporate archives, included what it actually took to tear down Disneyland’s House of the Future back in December of 1967


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

What using the Skyliner to get from Disney’s Hollywood Studios to Epcot has in common with traveling across NYC by subway

How the lessons that the Imagineers learned doing the forced perspective Beast’s Castle on top of the “Be Our Guest” restaurant at WDW’s Magic Kingdom will be used during the construction of Shanghai Disneyland’s new Zootopia “land”

Why Richard Fleischer recruited Disney Legend Harper Goff to come design the Proteus for 20th Century Fox’s 1966 sci-fi spectacular, “Fantastic Voyage”

How Disney’s hopeful view of the future gradually became out-of-step with public perception (Thanks largely to that steady stream of dystopian stories that movie-goers were fed in the late 1960s / early 1970s)

Why people who like hunting for Hidden Mickeys are going to enjoy exploring Municiberg at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
