Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s episode by drilling down into a new annual passholder survey, as Disney World tries to get a handle on what Guests' expectations are out ahead of next month’s re-opening of that Resort. Then Jim Hill talks about how changing “Splash Mountain” over to a “Princess & the Frog” theme would be a lot tougher than it looks.


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

Why WDW execs are concerned about what happens if a significant number of Guests opt-out of flying down to Disney World and choose to drive down to the Resort instead

What caused Walt Disney Animation Studios to significantly retool “The Frog Princess” in the months that immediately followed the initial announcement of this new Ron ‘n’ John film

Why -- when you’re having issues with your Disney annual pass -- you need to be persistent & polite when dealing with Guest Relations

How the Disneyland Resort may justify keeping the Disneyland Hotel closed for the next few months

Why construction crews had to use jackhammers on Disneyland’s “Splash Mountain” nine months before this flume ride finally opened to the public in July of 1989
