Sonny is an audio animatronic fictional alien who plays daily at cosmic rays starlight cafe in Tomorrowland in the magic kingdom. Come and take a listen to the little story of the location and hear his audio.  Plus, there's a bonus on here!

On this episode, I spend a moment talking about closures, but then move on to talking about the Contemporary, its construction, and the Mary Blair mural on the central pillar.

I figure we can all use a break from the every day....

Bob Iger stepped down. The coronavirus forced the closure of two parks. Streaming continues to evolve. There’s a lot to talk about!

But to answer the question in the title, I vote "nah"....there are concerns, but nothing specific, today.

If you’ll indulge me, I spend some time talking about *me*, how I got here, and how I’ve seen things change. 

My first show aired February 8, 2010. And I simply can’t believe I’ve managed to make it this far. 

It’s been a great ride, and I can’t wait to see where I go next!

Disney updated the show with new camera shots and a new narration featuring Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy. I present some info and the attraction audio. 

Incidentally, the new version of the Canada song was performed by Eva Avila, a Québécois.

I give you my perspective on the “state of the franchise” now that we’ve reached the end of the new trilogy. There are some spoilers in here but this is more my general feelings about where it stands, than it is about one movie. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daves-disney-view/message

I made a recent trip to the parks and I’m here to break it down. I’ve got 4 parts - food & wine, the disney skyliner, galaxys edge, and some thoughts about construction.

On this episode, I tell the tale of the visit by John Lennon to Walt Disney World, during which the Beatles were dissolved.  Its a tale that doesn't get enough press, and I thought I'd share it.

Disney has a complex media empire.  I take a look at a couple of items in the news that caught my attention that bring that mind.  It includes some lawsuits, Star Wars, Spider Man, and more.  Plus I take a look at Freeform TV and explore its history.

I didn't attend D23, but I got all the updates...and I have some thoughts about it all.  Epcot is about to undergo a major overhaul, and while I think its "needed," it changes the very nature of the park.  Plus, there were plenty of other updates that I talk about.  I hope I don't come off as negative - I have strong feelings about the legacy and history, and I feel like the company isn't about that anymore...

I was in the Orlando area last week, and made an effort to see Galaxy's Edge - but it didn't work out (sadly).  I talk about my time in the area, and about Star Wars Galaxy's Edge - and the emphasis on the newer episodes.  I have a theory about why this is, and it is really just a guess. 

Thought I'd share my thoughts.

For the first 25 years the Disney World Resort was open, they had an AM radio station (several actually) that broadcast information about the resort - from park hours to special events to things to do.  I talk about the broadcast, and play some clips for you.  Hope you enjoy!

It's time to answer some of your Disney-related questions.  Should I go for rope drop or stay late? What effect will Galaxy's Edge have on my visit?  Can I upgrade a ticket? And a short primer on FastPass+
