Episode #331 - a dose of Disney News

Club 33 in Epcot



Overview:  Today, I have a look at some off-the-beaten path Disney news, sprinkled in among stories that may be a little more familiar.  Tune in and enjoy!




Notes: I include thoughts about Club 33, a lawsuit against Disney, a few guest-related issues, and things like that.  I wanted to try something different this week.  Let me know what you think!

Episode #330 - A visit to "the World"




Overview:  I visited Walt Disney World in late October as part of my annual tradition of enjoying the Food and Wine Festival.  This time, I went at it alone, but made new friends as I went to various booths.  And since I was there, I visited all the parks to check out construction activities, see what was new, and to of course ride a few favorite attractions.




Notes: I had some fun hanging around, working on my video series, and enjoying some food!  I noticed with iOS12 my iPhone automatically added a location name to each recording, which was pretty slick.  And except for one recording, it was accurate.  The one that was wrong was when I was near the Tusker House in the Animal Kingdom.  For some reason, it said the recording was "Restroom" which I thought was pretty amusing.

Episode #329 - Food Rocks







Overview:  In 1993, Nestle took over as the title sponsor for The Land.  One of the changes they made was to close The Kitchen Kabaret, ending the run of veggie, veggie, fruit, fruit.  In March of 1994, Food Rocks was opened in its place. While it was similar in nature - food singing about good nutrition - it was quite a different show.








Notes: Food Rocks was sort of like a rock concert, and featured the voice talents of real world singers such as Tone Loc, The Pointer Sisters, and Chubby Checker.

Episode #328 - Circle of Life





Overview:  After a renovation, Symbiosis was unfortunately closed.  Opened in its place was The Circle of Life: an Environmental Fable.  This show stretched the nature of The Land to now talk about conservation through the lens of our friends from the Lion King.

Notes: While Symbiosis was a cinematic marvel, The Circle of Life was less so, though it did reuse scenes from the original film

Episode #327 - Symbiosis



Overview:  Within the Land pavilion was a remarkable move called Symbiosis that celebrated man's creative partnership with the land. It included marvels of past and present technologies and accomplishments. I talk about this film, and what it was all about.






Notes: The film was directed by Paul Gerber, and he actually brought people to see it as a living resume.  It was shot in 70mm (large film format) and included shots from around the globe.
