about

Len Testa starts off this week’s show by sharing some of the promotional slogans that the WDW Resort are reportedly considering adopting in the near future. He & Jim then talk about The Walt Disney Company’s forward-thinking approach when it comes to mitigating the impact that climate change will potentially have on Florida tourism.

lyrics

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

How Disney has been tracking things like how much waste each individual Guest typically produces while visiting a theme park since the WDW Resort opened back in October of 1971

How the Company’s self-imposed internal carbon tax has led to the creation of ride-sharing / emissions-lowering efforts like Disney’s Magic Express

How the water control system that General Joe Potter put into place back in the mid-1960s has helped Disney World handle the more extreme weather that the Sunshine State has been experiencing lately better than the rest of Central Florida

How Disney’s March 2018 decision to begin charging Guests for overnight parking at its WDW Resorts has less to do with corporate greed and more to do with carbon offsets

How even the Disney Cruise Line is getting in on the Corporation’s goal to lower its overall carbon footprint by having the next three ships that will be added to the DCL fleet be powered by LNG
