Len Testa starts off this week’s show by dissecting Disney World’s latest round of ticket price increases and what that will mean for Resort Guests in the coming months. Jim Hill then talks about the behind-the-scenes decisions that led to the Company recently revealing that “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” would open in Anaheim on May 31st and in Orlando on August 29th


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

Why all foodies must go out of their way to visit the Honey Bee-stro at Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival and then try the Local Wildflower Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake with Orange Blossom Honey Ice Cream

Why Disney Parks & Resorts is fast-tracking WDI’s reinvention of the Innoventions section of Epcot’s Future World

Why – back in January of this year -- Bob Iger told Barrons Magazine that Anaheim’s “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” would be opening in June, and why Disney shareholders in St. Louis were told a different opening date just last week

What the Universal Parks & Resorts did back in June of 2014 when they were facing their own “Star-Wars-Rise-of-the-Resistance-isn’t-going-to-be-ready-in-time” situation

Why the folks who work in Operations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are very, very happy that the Anaheim version of “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” will be opening first
