Len Testa starts off this week’s show by sharing his thoughts about “Awesome Planet,” “Canada: Far and Wide” as well as the “Beauty & the Beast Sing-along.” Jim Hill then talks about the carousel theater show that was originally supposed to be the centerpiece attraction at World Showcase’s Japan pavilion.


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

What was the key difference between “Wonders of China” & “O Canada” (i.e., those two Circle-Vision 360 presentations that were opening day attractions at Epcot Center)

Why the “Beauty & the Beast Sing-along” show will give you a renewed appreciation for the genius of the late, great Howard Ashman

How Epcot’s new “Awesome Planet” movie has some amazing imagery but a pretty meager message

Why Hong Kong Disneyland has a Mystic Manor attraction rather than its very own Haunted Mansion

What terms & conditions did Mitsukoshi set before then agreeing to pick up the full construction costs for Epcot’s Japan pavilion
