Episode 415: Greetings, Mouseketeers! Ready for another enchanting episode of “Traveling with the Mouse”? This week, we’re diving deep into exciting news, whirlwind rumors, and some delightful, imaginative brainstorming that’ll have every Disney enthusiast’s heart racing.
We kick things off by dissecting the latest earnings call from Disney. What’s up, what’s down, and what does it all mean for park-goers and Disney aficionados alike? We dissect the numbers, explore their implications, and discuss the potential future of our beloved theme parks.
But then, we venture into the realm of rumors that have taken the media by storm: Could Apple be considering a merger or even an acquisition of Disney? It’s a thought that might seem out of a fairy tale, but with the ever-evolving world of business mergers, we ponder on the feasibility, implications, and potential outcomes of such a colossal move.
After a dive into the news and speculations, we shift gears to our main segment, where dreams truly come alive. With the hypothetical scenario of an unlimited budget for Walt Disney World, what would we change? What new innovations would we bring to each of the four theme parks?

Episode 392: Today on the show we’re talking Q1 earnings call and what the aftermath will be. Some new things were announced like new sequels for some of the biggest franchises and a new experience coming to Disneyland. There were also some things that we didn’t want to hear…There will be seven thousand layoffs across the Disney organization and the Theme Park investments got cut by 700 Million dollars. The company is reorganizing to place ESPN out by itself. We can guess what that means as the company is also trying to erase the debt caused by recent acquisitions. Also, Reedy Creek Improvement District will be renamed but will continue on. However, the new board will consist of 5 supervisors that will be hand picked by the governor. There isn’t much Disney can do about it but wait and see how this goes.
Episode 369: We catch up on the Disney news of the week. Disney had a big earnings call this week and the profits are back up to pre-pandemic levels. We talk about how the parks are a big reason for that and what it could mean for future developments. Disney remains silent about magic key renewals as they try to increase guest yields. We discuss how that could impact things in a negative way in the long term. Meanwhile a new update to Genie plus creates a problem with park hopping and securing lightning lanes. Also, what’s up with Chapek’s Beard?
