Len Testa & Jim Hill talk about the impact that COVID19 has been having on the Disney Parks (Editor’s note: This was before Disney Parks announced on the evening of March 12th that they’d be closing all of their theme parks in the United States & France). Then Jim takes a look at how WDW’s Typhoon Lagoon wound up with a water coaster


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

What retail component will DCA’s Avengers Campus have in common with “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Which Texas waterpark held the key to the tech that powers WDW’s “Crush ‘n’ Gusher” water coaster

What was it about Central Florida & Hong Kong Disneyland that eventually led to “Lucky the Dinosaur” being retired from walking around the Disney theme parks

Which new character from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” theme park attraction was Disney Studios thinking about building a new “PotC” film trilogy around

How did the success of Typhoon Lagoon’s “Crush ‘n’ Gusher” water coaster impact the design of the Disney Dream & the Disney Fantasy
