Len Testa & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about the Universal Creative vets who recently opted to take early retirement packages. They also talk about the various Disneyland second gate plans WDI cooked up before finally settling on DCA.

Show Notes:


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

Which gone-but-not-forgotten Universal theme park ride does one of the Escape Rooms that just opened at the East Coast version of CityWalk pay tribute to

Why – when you’ve booked passage on the “Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser” – is it crucial that you go to Black Spire Outpost over the course of your cruise and complete as many tasks as possible

When did Walt Disney contemplate turning Disneyland’s parking into a showcase for California living

Why would the Universal Orlando Resort be exploring the idea of staging after-hours parties at its Volcano Bay water theme park

What did the Imagineers toy with doing at WESTCOT in place of building an actual earthen berm around the outermost edge of Disneyland’s proposed second gate
