Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by discussing the history of projection mapping at Universal Parks & Resorts. They then pay tribute to the longtime president & CEO of MCA who hung tough when The Walt Disney Company tried to stop Universal from entering the Central Florida tourism market in the mid-1980s


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

How many different varieties of rum are currently available for sampling at the Strong Water Tavern at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort

Why the very first projection mapping show that was created for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was strictly a one-night-only affair

How projection mapping was used during Halloween Horror Nights 21 to create a truly chilling effect in one of the scare zones

Why themed entertainment professionals expect “Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway” to be a real break-thru attraction

Where on the Universal Studios Hollywood lot Michael Eisner reportedly saw the plans for Universal City Florida back in July of 1981
