Len Testa starts out this week’s show by revealing how Disney World is using an upcoming Free Dining promotion to deliberately steer people away from visiting that Resort over the long Fourth of July Weekend. Then Jim Hill talks about the Imagineers kept circling back on a certain set of ideas when it came to Epcot’s long-in-development Space pavilion.


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

How the cancellation of the last three Apollo missions, as well as the winding down of the Vietnam War, impacted the Future World pavilions that were built for EPCOT Center’s opening day

Which parts of WDI’s plans for EPCOT’s long-in-development Space pavilion are being recycled for Disney World’s soon-to-open “Space 220” restaurant
