Some of them are things that we have associated with Disney from our childhood and others are more recent.

Today we try to answer the question…Why is Disney World so spread out? The answer is more complicated than you might think. It spans several decades and involves a lot of different people. We try to break this question down by going back to the beginning of Walt Disney World’s history and work our way to present day.

We go through each park at Walt Disney world and decide which attractions (past or present) are the worst of all time. Deciding which attractions should be on this list is harder than you would think. We debate about some attractions that one or both of us have had bad experiences on and try to decide if that should be a deciding factor in what attractions belong on the worst list. What attractions would go on your worst list?

In the early plans for Walt Disney World there were plans for 5 resorts. Only 2 of these original resorts were built (The Polynesian and the Contemporary) What ever happened to the other 3 resorts and why were they never built? The other resorts that were planned were the Asian resort, the Venetian resort, and the Persian resort. Jon and I talk about these resorts and examine their proposed locations. Do you wish that any of these resorts were ever built?
