Episode #239 - Disney, The Corporation

Overview: The recent changes to the pricing model - particularly for a day pass - got me to thinking about how Disney has become more about the bottom line, and more like many other I add my two cents to the discussion. The intent is to provide a point of view, not to be negative about the changes.  

Notes: I will be curious to see how Disney rolls out the coming changes - and how we'll react as customers. Hopefully they will continue to exceed my expectations!

Episode #238 - Disney Podcaster Roundtable

Overview: Barry and Scotty hosted a few podcasters - me included - to talk about what we love about Disney! Its a fun roundtable discussion with Dapsmagic, D-cast, and the Disney Cruising Mom, about what we love about the parks. I wanted to share with my listeners (note: this podcast is much longer than anything I typically produce)

Naturally, we're going to talk about the amazing machines that exist at DisneyLand and Disney World. We'll explore their history, and what we hope is their future! Its a fun talk about Disney, and so much more!


What's Disney's first monorail? Its the Peter Pan ride!  

Here's the model I mention that shows the monorail going to Downtown Disney:

Early reviews:
“The author has produced something wonderful here.” JH
“I can honestly say this book is well worth the price just for the pictures alone.” SE
“This is a masterpiece.  Every technical university should have one.” JK
“This is a book to own for any monorail or transportation enthusiast.: TS

Since publication in December the large 248-page hardbound book is already being used by monorailists and manufacturers to promote monorail for transit.  Monorails: Trains of the Future-Now Arriving is the definitive book on the topic and after only two months on the market, the color photo-rich book in the libraries of many railfans.  If you don’t have the book on your coffee table yet, it’s time to order it before it sells out!
