Join me, Tom Corless, and a cast including Jason Diffendal, Kyle Duffield, Matt Paul, Kelly Russo, Chris Lastrapes, Jose Castillo and Luke Manning for a show that Bridges the Gaps Between You and the World. I hope you enjoy all of the Walt Disney World information and fun we have to offer on this “Fiesta” edition of the WDW News Today Podcast.
To kick off episode 70, we have all the recent happenings from the last week to discuss in our Walt Disney World Resort News and Rumor Report. This time around, we’ll be talking about the future of Mickey’s Pirate and Princess Parties at the Magic Kingdom, some upcoming changes to Epcot’s usual hours of operation, and a new offering that may make your next next Disney resort check-in much more pleasant.
Following that, “It’s Time to Go Back” as our Walt Disney World history segment, Back To The Future, returns this week on the WDW News Today Podcast. On this week’s journey, we’ll be looking at the story of the Mexico pavilion at Epcot. It’s a fun trip through time as we discuss the classic El Rio Del Tiempo boat ride and it’s very recent replacement. As you would expect, the talk of characters and their place in Epcot is discussed, and we hope you’ll enjoy the entertaining trip through the Rivers of Time.
Finally, Town Square Talk is back this week, highlighting the hottest topics around our WDWNT Network of websites. First up, Matt Paul is here to highlight some new Disney Park videos you can download from the WDWNTube (wdwntube.com) and Your Ear to the World (eartotheworld.net). Luke Manning and Jose Castillo also drop in with some news on Disneyland News Today and the WDW News Today Community Forums. I’m also making some Town Square Talk this week, with news on how you can determine upcoming segments for this show, including our countdown of the 20 biggest moments in Disney’s Hollywood Studios history.
