This is our first episode that is primarily devoted to something non-Disney related. So…we spend the first 7 minutes talking about Disney. Specifically, the new Disney-Pixar film Coco which I saw during it’s opening weekend. I don’t give away any major spoilers but just go see it, you won’t regret it. Anyway…the point of this episode is to talk about the recent trip that my family took to Bryson City, North Carolina to experience the Polar express train. I give my review of the experience and let you know if I recommend it. On this same trip I also spent a day at the Biltmore in Ashville, North Carolina. I give a brief review of that experience and let you know if I would recommend it for parents with young children.

 

Today we talk about some of the rumors that have been floating around about possible new attractions coming to the world showcase. We talk about the rumored Coco makeover of the Mexico Pavilion and the rumors of a new attraction coming to the U.K. pavilion. We also talk about past attractions that never came to fruition and even make up our own rumors about what attractions should go into other world showcase pavilions.
