Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by sharing some cost savings tips when it comes to staying on WDW property. Then they offer up the long-awaited conclusion to a feature piece about the construction of Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park


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

 Which never-built Disney theme parks from the early 1990s were supposed to be the first to feature white water raft rides

 What WDW’s decision to only release its theme park hours through November 7th potentially says about this year’s Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

 Why the Universal Orlando Resort might now be looking for additional Guest input on the mix of rides, shows & attractions it’s planning on building at Epic Universe

 Which animals from Southeast Asia were WDW visitors originally supposed to see along the shoreline as they cruised down Tiger River Rapids

 Why did the royal-hunting-palace-that’s-been-abandoned-for-150-years theming of the Maharajah Jungle Trek make it that much easier for the Imagineers to design an enclosure that DAK’s tigers couldn’t escape from
