Stream Episode

Paul and guest-host Daniel discuss refurbs, rumors, and Meryl Streep’s vitriolic and slanderous remarks about Walt Disney.

Current Events:

Return of the Off-Season

Disneyland resort has moved into the off-season between New Years and Spring Break. This is a rare opportunity for you to enjoy the resort without big crowds for the most part, but the downside is that a ton of maintenance projects will be making touch-ups to spots around the park, work crew will be all over the place and a number of attractions will be closed as the parks take advantage of the smaller crowds to do some refurbishing.

In this episode we discuss the refurbishment of closures and re openings of:

Big Thunder Mountain, The Nightmare Before Christmas, It’s a Small World, The Sailing Ship Columbia, New Orleans Square, Alice in Wonderland, ¡Viva Navidad!, The Redwood Creek Challenge Trail and Soarin’ over California.

In A Little DLR History

Paul refutes Meryl Streep’s comments about Walt Disney at the National Board of Review Awards on Tuesday (1-7-14), and he and Daniel briefly discuss “Saving Mr. Banks”.
