Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by discussing the progress that’s been made to date with WDW’s Skyliner system. They also point out that Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure is obviously supposed to serve as a rebuttal to any theme park fan who claims that “Universal Creative only builds screen-based attractions.”


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

How – after watching WDW’s Skyliner system go through its initial trial runs – Disney’s online fan community has become far less vocal about the whole cabins-lack-onboard-air-conditioning issue

How of the orientation of the initial legs of WDW’s Skyliner system was largely determined by where Disney Parks & Resorts officials would like this transportation system to go in the future

The very amusing lengths that Universal Orlando execs will sometimes go to in order to not acknowledge construction of new rides, shows & attractions at their theme parks

Why people not knowing when exactly Florida’s version of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” is supposed to open is now impacting the advance reservation rate at both Disney World & the Universal Orlando Resort

How relocating Epcot’s “Leave a Legacy” courtyard to just outside of the entrance of this theme park is going to have a positive impact on guest flow during WDW’s 50th anniversary celebration
