Join us for our 21st episode of the Theme Park Trader Podcast!
Popcorn refill offer at Walt Disney World
Dan and I start things off this week by discussing a limited time deal that Disney are offering on popcorn until September 01st. We chat through the pros and the cons of the deal as well as the costs.
More on this deal here.
Pete’s Dragon Preview at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
We chat through the Pete’s Dragon sneak preview that is now at the One Man’s Dream attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. While on paper this sounds great, Dan and I discuss why we don’t like the idea as it takes away from the whole purpose of the attraction.
More on the sneak peek here.

The next story is a sensitive one and we chat through the terrible accident that occurred at the M&D’s theme park in Scotland last week as a coaster was derailed and several people injured.
More on this story here.

Guardians of the Galaxy Coming to Epcot?
We chat through the very odd rumour that Guardians of the Galaxy could be replacing Ellen’s Energy Adventure at Epcot. While nothing has formally been announced as of yet but you can read more on the rumour in our blog post.
Best and Worst Attractions at Islands of Adventure
This week Dan and I talk through our best and worst attractions at Islands of Adventure and its another interesting one that ends in a bit of a rant (Ryan losing his temper) on why Poseidon’s Fury is still at the park.
