about

Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about how the Imagineers plan on reconfiguring the front half of WDW’s science & discovery park. They also continue their Chronological Disneyland series by discussing how Michael Eisner’s Montana-inspired visions of the future eventually translated into Tomorrowland having decorative displays of kumquats & kale.

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

How Walt Disney World already has a plan for getting Guests around the Resort should the Skyliner have to temporarily stop operating due to an extreme weather event

What the upcoming redo of Epcot’s Innoventions / Communicore area has to do with Food & Wine, Flower & Garden, Holidays Around the World & Festival of the Arts

Why the rockwork which frames the Astro Orbitor at Tomorrowland’s entrance at Disneyland Park may soon suffer the same fate as Epcot’s “Leave a Legacy” Plaza

Which previously-owned-by-21st-Century-Fox IP will be the first to appear inside of a Disney theme park after that $71.3 billion acquisition is complete (Hint: This project will be a mammoth undertaking)

What “Nostromo” (i.e., the full-scale, ride-thru shooter attraction that the Imagineers wanted to base on “Alien,” Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror film for 1979) would have been like
