Episodes #296 & #297- big changes are a comin'




Overview: Change is in the air! At D23, we heard about a number of new attractions, new experiences, changes, and other assorted announcements about the theme parks, movies, digital content and a whole lot more.  And now that I've had time to think about it, I talk about it!  


Notes: There were some announcements made prior to D3, and a few made after - plus there are a few rumors that won't seem to go away...so I've got those here too!

At the end of the show, I tell you my big three I'm looking forward to, and three that I'm not so keen on.  What are yours?  Discuss below.

I didn't mention it in the podcast, but the one thing I will absolutely miss are the dinosaurs in the Energy attraction!

Episode #295 - Canada and Expo 67

That's me looking at the Niagara Falls version of the Backside of Water!


Overview:What did Dave do on his Summer Vacation?  He went to Canada! But here's the thing - I was amazed at how much I related Disney to things that I saw, and how various exhibits are influenced by Disney in some way...I also took some time to learn more about Expo67, and I share that with you.  


Notes: You should check out my full post of thoughts, and link to the Musee McCord, which had an exhibit of Expo67.

Below is a composite of the St Laurent Hotel in Ottawa, and the Disney version of the hotel that appears in Epcot (which of course was inspired by the St Laurent)
