Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by sharing what may turn out to be Universal Orlando’s next big promotional campaign. They then look back at how Michael Eisner started adding celebrities to Disney theme park attractions in the mid-to-late 1980s


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

Who specifically is Disney Parks now trying to prevent from seeing the surveys that they send out

Why did the Imagineers decide to change the marquee for “Cranium Command” inside of the Wonders of Life pavilion a year or so after that Epcot addition first opened

Who was originally supposed to play the Supreme Leader in “Captain EO” ? And why did they decide to pull out of that production?

Why it may be a while yet before Monsieur Paul & Takumi Tei re-open at Epcot

What’s especially significant about Robin Williams’ performance in “The Timekeeper”
