Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by discussing the 26.3 acres of land that Disney just bought to the west of WDW’s Magic Kingdom. They then go on to discuss how the construction of Innoventions impacted Future World


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

Why was the staff at Disney World Tree Farm & Nursery so upset when they learned that Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival was coming back for the Spring of 1995

How far in advance did WDW horticulturists begin collecting all of the trees & shrubs that were needed for Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Which WDW construction projects will most likely be placed on hold once Disney’s Florida parks re-open

Why was the soil that the Imagineers harvested while digging Seven Seas Lagoon so difficult for plants & trees to grow in

What does the Future World of 1994 have in common with the Future World of 2020
