Mousetalgia: Goes bi-coastal as we take you out to Florida to report on the 2016 “Destination D: Amazing Adventures” event that just concluded with breaking news and behind-the-scenes insights into some of Disney’s most adventurous undertakings. But first, Jeff reports on recent West Coast happenings, including in-person reports from the Van Eaton Galleries “Souvenirs of Disneyland” auction; the 2016 CTN Animation Expo; and a very special Haunted Mansion happening with Peter Renaday and Mark Silverman at Creature Features in Burbank (ahem). Then, Mousetalgia special correspondent Lindsey Elhai joins us to talk all about last week’s Destination D event hosted by D23 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, with reports on varied topics such as Disney Hollywood Studios’ new “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” fireworks show; EPCOT’s “Frozen Ever After”; Walt Disney’s True Life Adventures, Disney Animal Kingdom’s “Pandora – The World of Avatar”, and more, with exclusive conversations with Imagineers and insiders including Becky Cline, Don Hahn, Tony Baxter, Marty Sklar, Wyatt Winter, Tom Vazzana, and others.
The Sweep Spot: In this episode we take a tour of Disneyland as if it were the year 1966 with former night Custodial Cast Member Rob Merritt. Rob worked there in the summer of 1966 and has some great stories to tell as we talk about what Disneyland was like in 1966. It was a transitional year of changes, and an unfortunate event as well.
