Len Testa starts off this week’s episode by sharing some patents that are sure to impact Guests’ experiences at WDW’s still-under-construction “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser” resort.
Then Jim Hill looks back at all of the shows that have been presented at the “Monster Sound Show” theater over the past 30+ years.

*Note* - This episode contains 3D sound which is best heard through headphones. Also, the audio used is not CD Quality, so some of the effect is lost as a result. (The frequency spectrum from 15khz through to 21khz is all missing)


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

How WDW visitors are going to sharpen their lightsaber skills in the comfort of their own hotel rooms

Why the Imagineers insisted that Disney-MGM’s “Monster Sound Show” have the word “Monster” in its title

How the construction of the West Coast version of “Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway” remains on track

What part of Pleasure Island was resurrected every holiday season at Disney’s Hollywood Studios from 2011 - 2015

How exactly did WDI achieve that “It-feels-like-they’re-really-cutting-my-hair” moment in the binaural sound show that was presented in Disney-MGM’s SoundWorks
