Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by reviewing some of the safety policies & procedures that Disney & Universal may employ as they begin to re-open their theme parks. They then look back at the Summer of 2002. Which is when EPCOT’s Norway pavilion received a royal makeover.


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

How cleaning practices that the Disneyland Resort put into place back in the late 1980s / early 1990s actually wound up hurting Cast Members who worked at the Emporium

Which real royals showed up for the formal dedication of EPCOT’s Norway pavilion back in June of 1988

What did “Howie’s Angels” do that then forced The Walt Disney Resort to change the procedure that Guests used to book a character breakfast at “Cinderella’s Royal Table”

How the parking garages at Universal Orlando may be repurposed as part of that Resort’s efforts to battle COVID-19

Which two theme parks/resorts in Asia are providing Disney & Universal with practical data which can then be used to battle the coronavirus
