January is a great time to reflect on the year past and the year ahead. On this episode, we share our favorite and biggest theme park moments of 2013 and our predictions for 2014 and beyond. What will be our biggest story of 2013? Will it be the bust of Disney’s MyMagic+, SeaWorld’s Blackfish problem, Tony Baxter’s retirement from Disney . . .? Listen on to find out.

Then we turn our attention to 2014 and what is already shaping up to be a magical year for Universal as Harry Potter 2.0 – Diagon Alley – prepares to open at the Orlando park. Plus, Disneyland gossip, Tomorrowland Star Wars projects, Major project problems and much, much more. We even have a cameo by Robert Coker about the project to save Walt Disney’s birthplace in Chicago.

    How about “Museum of the Weird” going in at DCA on the Boardwalk, with a Ripley’s Believe It or Not looking facade? I think it would make a great addition over there!
    Love this podcast! For someone who can only get to Disneyland once a year now, and a complete junkie for behind-the-scenes info, I really enjoy this! Keep up the great work!

    I have to say, I LOVE Mystic Manor. When I was in Hong Kong in September, I went on it easily 10 times! It is one of the best rides I have been on, Disney or not, period!

    I listened to the podcast tonight. I have to say, the end slayed me! I enjoy how you cover the whole theme park industry, and your rapport with your guests. Looking forward to the next one!
