Len Testa starts off this week’s show by talking about how all of the construction that’s been going on towards the front of Future World has been negatively impacting Epcot’s “The Seas with Nemo & Friends” pavilion. Then Jim Hill does a deep dive on the development of “Ratatouille: L’Adventure” for Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris


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

Why the popularity of the Magic Kingdom’s projection mapping shows limited what could be done to Cinderella Castle for WDW’s 50th-anniversary celebration

How WDW execs are planning on bringing Guests who haven’t been back to the Resort in over 20 years up-to-speed when it comes to technological changes like MagicBands, tiered FastPasses and RotR boarding groups.

Why Epcot managers are assuming that attendance levels for that theme park’s “Beauty & the Beast Singalong” show will go up once “Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure” opens this Summer

What worried the Imagineers most about suggesting to the French bankers who controlled Euro Disney’s debt that Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris needed an attraction based on Pixar’s 2007 release

Why it took more than 12 years for WDI’s trackless ride technology to be used in an attraction outside of the Tokyo Disney Resort
