I’m going to take a break from podcasting for a while. Consider it like I’m temporarily closed, much like the resort. I tell you about my decision. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daves-disney-view/message

I gave up my annual pass. And at the moment, things are looking not-so-rosy for theme parks in the immediate future - because there’s still a lot of uncertainty.  I listened in to the 2Q earnings call, and have something to say about what I heard. And of course, I’ve got some more thoughts about it. Plus I hit on a couple of news items that are a little less serious.  Lost (& Found) episode #32 discovery island https://youtu.be...

Today, I have for you the original entrance area music, which played from 1982-2001 in future world. It set the tone for what futureworld was, and carried on the music from the pavilions. Enjoy! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daves-disney-view/message

As we roll through another week, I thought I’d provide a little fun - here’s the background music loop that was played along mainstreet from about 1989 until 2012. Of course (as always) there’s a little story to tell. Enjoy! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daves-disney-view/message

I took an opportunity to pass by the resort because I wanted to see for myself what it looked like...it was surreal almost like it came from Stephen King’s The Stand. So I talk about what I saw, and have some updates on what’s going on.  Finally, I play the audio from the 1987 resort tv loop, for your enjoyment. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daves-disney-view/message

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
