Join us for our 40th episode of the Theme Park Trader podcast!
This week Ryan and Dan are joined by once again by friend of the show Anaïs who joins us to discuss her recent WDW booking and to chat through this weeks news and each of our favourite Disney Parks and one thing we would change about them.
News covered this week:
Donald Trump Coming to Hall of Presidents
As news broke last week that Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States of America, the inevitable came to light, he would be arriving at the Hall of Presidents in 2017.
Dan, Anaïs and I chat through the results of the Presidency and our thoughts on what the Trump animatronic will end up looking like.
More on Donald Trump joining Hall of Presidents here.
Toy Story Land Coming to Shanghai Disneyland
Despite Shanghai Disneyland only opening earlier this year, the first expansion has been announced in the form of Toy Story Land.
We chat through what we think of the announcement and you can read more here.
Drones Arriving at Disney Springs this Holiday Season
With the FAA finally approving drone flights at Walt Disney World, Disney were quick to announce a drone holiday show at Disney Springs.
While the details are yet to be announced, we chat through the initial video announcement (you can see below), and what this could mean for the future of drones at WDW.
Universal Orlando to Open Sixth Hotel
In 2018, Aventura Hotel will be opening at Universal Orlando and Dan Anaïs and I chat through what this could mean for Universal Orlando’s future. Our thinking is that six hotels may be a bit overkill for the resort as it currently stands, could a future theme park announcement be on the way soon?
More on the Aventura Hotel announcement here.
Doctor Strange Meeting Guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
As Doctor Strange is the first Marvel character to meet guests at Walt Disney World, we discuss our thoughts on what this could mean for the future of Marvel at WDW. Considering Disney are not allowed to mention Marvel at all and that this is just a temporary arrangement it could be an interesting future.
You can watch a video of the meet and greet below:
We finish the show by each discussing one thing that we would change at our favourite Disney Park!
