Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by sharing a trip-planning survey that Disney Visa recently sent out. They then continue their look at Disney Corporate’s decades-long relationship with the McDonald’s restaurant chain.


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

 Which Warren Beatty film caused Disney’s working relation with McDonald’s to sour

 Why Disney just took ownership of the Global Dream, a still-under-construction cruise ship

 Which annual passes for the Parks at the Disneyland Resort are once again available for sale

 What was the name of the theme park that Ray Kroc wanted to build to the northeast of Los Angeles back in the 1970s

 Which Disney film caused McDonald’s franchisees to revolt & demand that this fast-food corporation renew its promotional relationship with the Mouse House
