Len Testa starts off this week’s show by looking back on his recent VIP tour of the two theme parks at the Universal Orland Resort. Then Jim Hill talks about why Rolly Crump was one of Walt Disney’s favorite Imagineers

Show Notes:


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

How crowded will Disney’s Hollywood Studios be on the very first day that Jollywood Nights is presented

What’s the name of that year-round horror-themed attraction that UDX is building in Las Vegas

How much did it cost to construct the Tower of the Four Winds for the 1964 – 1965 New York World’s Fair

What was unusual about the way the musical score for “Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress” was tweaked when Jean Shepherd became the narrator of this Tomorrowland attraction back in the mid-1990s

Who used to accompany Walt when he’d wander the halls of Disney Studios on nights & weekends, long after all of the artists & animators who worked there had gone home
