To all who come to our happy place welcome to the no-guilt Disney Podcast where we have no guilt about our love for all things Disney.

00:34.79
Theresa
We are 3 Disney fan girls who probably know more about the Disney parks than most grown women should and we’re perfectly. Okay, with that we love it so much. We’re actually carrying the love of 3 women even there’s ah, there’s only 2 of us today.

00:46.18
noguiltfangirl
There are only 2 of us today. Jane is sitting this one out. She’s got homework and whatnot so we’ll catch up with her on the next round of videos and podcast. Ah, but ah, you got yeah Teresa and patty and we’re gonna talk about I think something that’s like right up both of our alleys. In a lot of ways. We love the Disney Parks news we love the changes we love the expo of it all and Teresa just went to a destination d and she’s gonna tell us all about the newsdrops that came out but more importantly, she’s also gonna tell us about the vibes. And she’s gonna tell us about like how this is different from d 2 3 expo because I think a lot of us don’t know I think that’s fair to say um, but especially if we’ve never been to this event which I’ve never been to this event so we’re gonna jump into all that real quick but to to please introduce yourself to those who are.

01:39.79
Theresa
Yes, hello everyone. My name is Teresa I think I’m our resident Disney Parks definitely the nerdiest of all of us the the Disney history are yes, that’s me and you can find me on all socials at gertie the dino.

01:39.99
noguiltfangirl
Just tuning in for the first time.

01:48.48
noguiltfangirl
One he percent the nerdiest. Yes, ah.

01:53.95
noguiltfangirl
Hi All’ll um, ah, patty holiday from the no guilt universe which is no guilt disney.com and no guiltilt fangirl. No guilt life and no guilt travel. You can find me on all socials at no guiltilt life and. Like we said we’re here to talk about the destination d so quick rewind this happened last weekend and Tera was there while Jane and I were oogie booying it up in Disneyland so we’re gonna have both of those episodes. Ah, probably gonna drop back to back honestly, you’re probably just gonna get this boom boom boom of content. Um because we were kind of saving up all of September to bring you these 2 big weekends that each of us had and um, we’re just Goingnna drop it all at once because what why gate keep it from anybody so we’re gonna throw it all out. Um. So no you’re not gonna be like dreaming when you get multiple videos at the same time also to be honest, like if I don’t get it out right away. It ai n’t ever gonna get out so that’s the way I work.

02:58.20
Theresa
What and just kind of knowing if you’ve listened to any of our previous podcast episodes. You know these 2 topics are things that are very near and dear to our hearts. Ah Jane especially anything Halloween um I think this is just.

03:04.44
noguiltfangirl
Absolutely.

03:11.36
Theresa
We We’re very excited to discuss these so it’s also it’s for you. But really, it’s a little bit for us.

03:13.60
noguiltfangirl
Thousand percent for us a hundred percent okay all right? So first of all, let’s talk about um, what is destination d versus d 23 expo

03:24.28
Theresa
Sure so destination d or destination d 23 it is another event held by d 23 kind of you know there. It’s it’s the part of the Walt Disney company that is there looking at the Disney history and doing a lot of different fan events kind of just to celebrate.

03:38.75
noguiltfangirl
If.

03:41.99
Theresa
What’s happened in the past and what’s to come in the future. So destination d 23 is held on alternate years from d 23 expo so they’ll do expo one year they’ll do d destination d 23 the next year expo will be out in California destination d 23 is held in Florida. Um, I think the biggest difference is to your point talking about the vibes destiny to d twenty three is much more chill and I mean that because you don’t have the stress of you’re you’re going to this event and you’re wondering what? what am I going to get to do when I’m there.

04:05.65
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

04:16.35
Theresa
I Really appreciate that when you get your ticket for destination D 23 you know you get to go to all of the panels you get all of the content everything that they’re offering to you so you kind of go in the morning and you’re in in one of the ballrooms in the contemporary and then it’s just kind of panels back to Back. So. Ah D 23 Expo If you’ve done it before you know there’s a ah lottery to hopefully get into some of the big panels or to guarantee your spot in is a hall of schedule.

04:41.20
noguiltfangirl
There’s a whole schedule and it’s mind blowing and it’s also gut wrenching because you’re trying to decide if you want to go to this sort of go to that because they’re at the same time because of course they are like I had that happen to me a couple times like 2 of my biggest fandoms were like butting up against each other and I was just like you jerks.

04:53.55
Theresa
Yes, it’s it like said and it’s a great event. We’ve we’ve all gone. We love this event. But for me I Just I appreciate that it it does take less planning to kind of think through if you’re going to do destination D and again just the it’s just a much more chill vibe I think it attracts more of the like.

04:57.40
noguiltfangirl
Who.

05:02.16
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

05:12.90
noguiltfangirl
And isn’t it just like one day versus like a whole weekend. Oh it is okay.

05:13.10
Theresa
History- focused people because it is it’s it’s it is a full weekend so sometimes they’ll have special events on Friday this year that everybody had they have ah 3 different shops there. So again, that’s ah d 23 expo has a ton of shopping and a ton of vendors. It’s it’s like a.

05:28.25
noguiltfangirl
Who okay.

05:31.93
Theresa
Destination d is a more con convention condensed version not in a bad way. But so you can get like you have your reserved shopping time so you can go and go to any of the shops and not have to worry about missing panels for it over the weekend and then on Saturday and Sunday it’s full days of panels and special events in the evening. Which is another little bit of a difference I feel like you get a little more for your money at destination d based on some of the gifts that they give you the events that they have planned in the evenings I I love this event. They do also have an exhibit this year was about animatronics. So they have you know you you get to see a little bit of everything from all aspects of the company similar to how you do at d 23 expo but it tends to be a little more focused on history. Ah there’s a specific topic every year so this year was obviously celebrating 100 years of the Walt Disney company and they kind of focus. Even though you might have something about you know there’s a little a brief marvels panel or a Disney Cruise line panel that kind of find a way to work it in to the overall theme.

06:34.29
noguiltfangirl
Okay, so what I literally heard was this is your weekend like this is basically if you guys want to know about Teresa there you go that. That’s the description of it and this fits with her so well and I will tell you guys.

06:39.88
Theresa
Yes, this is it.

06:50.81
noguiltfangirl
I was watching Twitter and checking on things the entire weekend that we were at Disneyland and all every single time I was like oh teresas I can’t wait to hear whatesa say I Teresa’s gonna either love this or hate because I can’t wait to hear which which way she decided to go on it. Um, so we got a lot of just you know, feedback and information to give from a very big.

07:03.51
Theresa
Ah.

07:10.36
noguiltfangirl
Self-describe disney nerd we say with love and um, we’re going to talk a little bit about that. But 1 of the big things that they did come out with is like some rebranding some changes with d 2 3 expo so this is gonna be called something else altogether now and we also have dates and I have to ask.

07:27.82
Theresa
Yes I did not yet and I’ll explain why in a moment. Um, but yes so I have been referring to d 23 expo they are no longer calling it d 23 expo it the official new name is d 23 the ultimate fan event.

07:28.61
noguiltfangirl
Did you book your hotel room already. Oh. Okay.

07:45.71
Theresa
I will be honest, that’s a long title and just condensing it to d 23 does not clarify it from you know that part of the company versus the event itself I probably will refer to it as expo at least for a while simply because I think I don’t write it.

07:58.49
noguiltfangirl
Hi Elon Musk and Twitter like it’s still Twitter it’s still the 23 x right energy studios okay so yeah.

08:05.90
Theresa
So to me, it’s still future world’ got like I I’m not resistant to change but it just takes a minute for my brain to embrace it. Um, but yes, so it is now d 23 the ultimate fan event the dates of the the panels. The event itself is going to be August ninth to eleventh. 2024 they have made some some interesting announcements though so earlier but before then they are doing something that really does appeal to me. They’re doing a d twenty three day at angel stadium which is where the Los Angeles angels pay if you know anything about me outside of Disney my next biggest fandom.

08:35.40
noguiltfangirl
I think.

08:44.27
Theresa
Is baseball like I’m diehard Orioles fan. Um I do have goals of seeing all the stadiums across the country. So I love the idea of doing it with a group of Disney fans. But so they said that’s going to be on August fourth they are doing a special day at Disneyland on August Eighth but the biggest the biggest piece of news and biggest update that they have made. Is that so they’re gonna have like the shopping exhibits and the smaller panels during the day at the Anaheim convention center and then in the evenings they are moving over to the honda center which is a massive huge like concert venue and that’s where I believe they’re gonna be doing.

09:16.71
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

09:21.70
Theresa
Those signature panels. So the Disney Parks panels the live action and animated film panels. The ones that people usually wait out overnight for they are moving it to a much larger venue so that way as many people as possible can at at night. Um, and so.

09:30.70
noguiltfangirl
And at night and at night.

09:38.61
Theresa
Yeah, so like I love the idea that they’re going to making it. So anybody who wants to go can go. It will be interesting to see if they do like those tickets just for the Honda Center part like just for those big panels and that’s like that would be a separate type of ticket which I actually think is a great idea for people who maybe that’s all they’re interested in.

09:47.66
noguiltfangirl
Right.

09:56.31
noguiltfangirl
Who.

09:57.12
Theresa
Kind of frees up some space in the convention center for everybody else. Um my concern and this is where I’m on the fence about what I’m doing this year even though I do think these are great changes I don’t know how they’re going to be getting people to and from.

10:14.61
Theresa
It’s not that close I was asking somebody who knows a little better than I do and it’s It’s not necessarily walkable because of the location they would have to be some kind of.

10:23.20
noguiltfangirl
Technically it is because we used to run through there during the disneyland half marathon weekends. Um, however, no to your point that was my very first thought was are they going to plan some kind of a shuttle situation. Is there going to be some kind of transportation back and forth because. It’s not close. They they have parking lots I assume over at boatwell angel stadium definitely has parking lots because we also ran through that. But Honda the Honda Stadium obviously is going to have parking lots too. But most people don’t get cars or maybe can’t drive for accessibility reasons. So therefore like.

10:56.11
Theresa
He.

11:00.43
noguiltfangirl
Okay, the car situation like yeah, we need some more transportation info agreed.

11:03.70
Theresa
Yes, and then and my other and this is this is you know me this is based on how I do d 23 expo in the past those evenings are also part of my Disneyland time.

11:14.57
noguiltfangirl
Oh he agrees with you. He’s so angry that they’re taking away your Disneyland time look how mad my dog has gotten he is I do I ignore him but ah.

11:19.20
Theresa
Yes, okay. Ah, he’s worked up. Ah yeah, um, but yeah, so and I said and with these all of these other events I know they said they having the d twenty three kickoff I I do like to have full days at Disneyland before and after expo but I like having the evenings. You know, spend a little more time in different areas of Disneyland so I I just have to think through and decide do I am I okay, with you know am I okay, with the extra cost if I want to do you know this kind of California trip the way I typically do to be able to get as much Disneyland time as I normally do or do I want to shift.

11:55.98
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

12:00.69
Theresa
When I go to Disneyland because I’ve only ever been in August and September because of this event like do I want to maybe save not go to day 23 the ultimate fan event and save it to go during the the Christmas holiday season which.

12:14.77
noguiltfangirl
So Halloween 3 six five I thought I had you I thought I had you? no I get it I get it’s it’s that is that is a top tier moment for anybody but definitely for somebody like you so I get it. Okay, that’s fair.

12:16.97
Theresa
But I I want to see I want to see a small world all whit up with the Christmas lights i.

12:29.82
Theresa
Yeah, so it’s I have time to think about it I would say if you’re considering it I do know people who as soon as the dates were announced talking about how they were already reserving their hotels so tickets will go on sale sometime in the spring no date on that yet. But yeah so I would say if you’re considering it.

12:34.72
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

12:43.98
noguiltfangirl
Ah, who who.

12:47.18
Theresa
Doesn’t hurt to do like a refundable deposit on a hotel. Um I I just have to figure out what my plans are I’m I mean I have to decide when I want to go to Disneyland it’s hard hard choices I will still be there at some point. But yes I’m thinking through what my plans are but i.

12:56.80
noguiltfangirl
Girl I get it I get it.

13:05.26
Theresa
Again, we we love d 23 expo or d 23 the ultimate fan event. So if you’re thinking about it. Definitely kind of put plans in place now to attend. Um, but yeah, like there’s we still got I think the news that we got at this parks panel that we’re gonna discuss in a bit. Um.

13:05.28
noguiltfangirl
I know.

13:12.86
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

13:23.31
Theresa
I I Love how they presented it? Um, but I think that there’s some things they held back on because they want to make a big splash especially in a such such a bigger venue.

13:32.51
noguiltfangirl
Deaf of what 100% um, speak I mean we’re gonna talk about destination d have promise. But ah, my also my thought was like they need to hurry up and figure out this whole strikeitch because there. Their plans and their situation are getting pushed back like considerably the longer this goes on and if we’re having a d 23 expo a year for less than a year from now those things have got to get hammered out and the timeline has to be figured out for them to present. Traditionally what? they’ve always presented before which was the movies and the Tv shows those panels so because that’s what my fandom that’s what I get most interested in for d 23 I’m like I your baby. We. Love you. You know we do. But. Fix your house on fix your house pay your bee ball.

14:25.34
Theresa
Yes, and and I’ll say they so on the Sunday of on if you were paying attention online. You might have seen that Saturday they did livestream all of the panels for destination d 23

14:32.53
noguiltfangirl
M.

14:37.77
Theresa
Which I think is great for people to get a sense of what it is and to all share in that news together. But on Sunday we did get um we did get a panel based on like animation. We got one so they did show clips. We saw? Yes, um, so.

14:37.96
noguiltfangirl
M.

14:46.00
noguiltfangirl
And that was like quietly behind like yeah, you guys saw some good stuff right? yeah.

14:53.41
Theresa
But yeah, oh I’ll talk about one of the things we saw shortly but I would say I thought that they actually did a really great job. All things considered with the strike happening finding ways to present that while you know people who are striking. You know, not not putting anybody in an uncomfortable position I thought they found other people in the in the background.

15:07.14
noguiltfangirl
Good.

15:13.70
Theresa
You know, kind of they had somebody um who worked on props for a soca kind of talking about that as they were talking about. You know the the second half of what’s going to coming up in a soka they ah they had some of the is like the directors and producers of once upon a studio which is the the short that they are doing to celebrate 100

15:17.72
noguiltfangirl
M.

15:29.70
noguiltfangirl
Yes.

15:31.82
Theresa
Years of the Walt Disney company and I that I cannot wait for this to come out and for everybody to see it. It had a very longs standing ovation. It is so sweet and so touching it’s so well done I I need this to be available immediately. So I can watch it again. But for everybody else to watch it. It’s it’s.

15:38.68
noguiltfangirl
Awesome.

15:51.12
Theresa
Fantastic. But I I appreciated that like said it’s it’s I Yeah I can’t say enough great things about it. Um I’m glad you know in the midst of everything happening that the people who did work so hard on that got you here.

15:52.53
noguiltfangirl
I Got kind of goose bumps about that. So I’m excited about that one too. Yeah.

16:05.64
Theresa
Reaction in person because number one you don’t get that a lot when you kind of invest so much of your time but you don’t get to hear the audience reaction from people who are so passionate about it. But I again I think having the people that they did for those panels I’m sure was challenging to figure out what to do I Thought they just did a really great job of.

16:08.45
noguiltfangirl
Sure.

16:22.46
noguiltfangirl
Good, Good. Okay.

16:25.32
Theresa
Not not making it feel like anything was lacking because they didn’t have any big star names.

16:28.93
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, yeah, well let’s just hope they figure this out sooner rather than letter for all of us because it really I Just don’t I don’t know how much people are really paying attention or or how you where you fall on it. But what I will tell you just as an average person who likes to.

16:33.63
Theresa
Yes.

16:48.84
noguiltfangirl
Watch Tv and watch movies. We’re going to go into a really big dry spell because it does take time for these things to be created and produced and edited and put out and scheduled and all of that stuff and this has been going on since what.

16:51.98
Theresa
Who.

17:04.59
noguiltfangirl
Was it may April I can’t remember how it’s been. It’s been a while this you know we’re talking here in September and it could easily go into October november and I think if that happens I’m just saying as a consumer you are going to notice.

17:06.75
Theresa
It’s been Yeah, it’s been a few months. Um.

17:23.89
noguiltfangirl
Um, a lot of your favorite shows and a lot of your favorites are either not going to come back at all because people are going to move on. They’re going to be like well I only scheduled that one year to get that done and I’m committed to other things and those timelines didn’t change so I can’t do Xyz show anymore for you like stuff like that could happen and that would just be. Such a bummer such a bummer. Yeah oh because of the writer’s bike. Yeah nope.

17:45.17
Theresa
Yeah, and we we saw like with the previous the last writers strike you know this was the boom of reality Tv was because of this you know because that’s they’re not sag. They wga you’re right? So we saw that boom you saw a lot of shows kind of the storylines they wanted to tell get disrupted. Ah.

18:01.62
noguiltfangirl
Yep.

18:02.31
Theresa
And and even just more recently with Covid with so so many fewer people being able to actually film and do anything you know Covid threw off that kind of Schedule. So I think we’re all hopeful that they’ll be able to work something out I think we also want people to be paid what they’re worth and to be. Feel like they’re being respected in their industry I think that’s something that does not get talk about yes.

18:21.20
noguiltfangirl
Listen the money’s there, that’s that’s the thing is like the money is there. It’s there. So let’s just figure out and I’m not I’m not like this crazy socialist is like it all has to be equal. But I do think you like to your point you need to be respected and you need to be paid for your work and. Is I felt like there was a lot of disrespect going on with the way. The streamers were playing games and and whatever and so I’m I’m given a little side- eye to just entertainment as a whole, not just Disney but entertainment as a whole for some things that I I hope that we can find somewhere in the middle to meet and and to. Push this forward. Okay and f off our soapboxes. Let’s talk about the sparks panel because there are some cool things coming that I don’t think we were expecting to hear about necessarily.

19:00.14
Theresa
Yes.

19:10.40
Theresa
There was one piece of news that completely came out of nowhere for me like I I won’t we’ll get there I’m not gonna start with it. Um, but I wanted I wanted to preface the parks panel because to patty’s point like this This is my event This is this is like my space. These are my people and I’ve I’ve done a couple.

19:14.75
noguiltfangirl
Okay, give it to me give it to me. Okay, ah.

19:28.34
Theresa
Destination d 23 s I’ve done a few d 23 expos so I have been in these big Newsy parks panels before um this is my favorite I will want to say best because best is subjective. This is my favorite one of anywhere I’ve been in attendance I left this this panel feeling like number 1

19:37.31
noguiltfangirl
If if if.

19:47.94
Theresa
Everything they announced will actually happen which if you have done the big expos before you know things get announced so early that plans can change particularly everything that was announced at the Twenty Nineteen Ah D Three and 3 expo.

19:52.96
noguiltfangirl
And. Oh yeah, yeah, everything. Yeah.

20:01.72
Theresa
You know, obviously Covid disrupted everybody’s plans across the board and a lot of things that were announced. Um no longer happening. Um, but I also feel like you know talking about balance I feel like they struck the right balance between introducing new things updating classics. Incorporating characters and Ip but also celebrating the theme parks as their own unique intellectual property which is I feel like that’s something they’ve struggled to kind of do all those things at once. Um, but.

20:24.50
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

20:33.80
Theresa
I’m just I’m really excited with everything they announced about the future of the Disney parks and particularly well Disney world because that’s where the bulk of the news that they announced is for for the Florida parks.

20:43.64
noguiltfangirl
Right? right? and all good things I mean I think the the big big fandom. The big people. The people that are like super into Disney some of us have gone through this period of like. not not dissatisfaction I mean there’s some straight-up dissatisfied people out there but also just some unhappy with the trending ways that things are going and even I felt it sometimes and I really don’t get hung up on a lot of that kind of drama but I had felt it some ways where I’m like ah. Wish that they weren’t doing that I wish that they were doing this so everything that came out from destination d also gave me a little bit of hope and I’m not nearly on your level. Um, but it gave me a little bit of hope that there were some. Forward positive movements. You know we can’t fix what’s in the past like we can’t ignore what’s in the past we can’t go back and redo things like what happened what is what happened. However, we can move forward and I do feel like this was all moving forward. Those were kind of that’s how I interpreted like the motto was like we’re going to move forward.

21:44.82
Theresa
Yeah.

21:50.14
Theresa
Yes.

21:52.10
noguiltfangirl
We’re just going to keep moving forward. So happy about that happy about that I am and since I was in Disneyland can we start with Disneyland. Okay.

21:56.29
Theresa
Yes, ready to get into the actual news and updates. Yes, we will start with Disneyland um, there wasn’t a ton for Disneyland so we’ll do the the 2 quick ones for Disneyland Park first um

22:09.24
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

22:11.67
Theresa
And these ones the ones that they announced for Disneyland Park are also things coming to Walt Disney world um so they made a brief announcement that um, a soka which if the last episode of a soka is one of the best star wars things I’ve ever seen ever. So I’m all in all in on a soka.

22:27.33
noguiltfangirl
Okay, who.

22:29.55
Theresa
But they announced that there is going to be in a soka scene coming to star tours both at Disneyland Hollywood studios and in Disneyland Paris and they also showed us. They walked out asha who’s the the lead character from the upcoming movie. Wish they walked her out so we got to see her. She is also going to be coming to Disneyland and. Epcot which is interesting but also Disneyland Paris um I normally would not mention like a single character coming out but it’s notable that Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris

22:51.29
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

23:02.70
Theresa
Also getting a character at the same time as Disneyland because Disneyland usually is just much more on top of introducing new characters early and they tend to wait before they go to other parks. So I actually think it is pretty significant that they’ve announced like at the same time. This character is going to be at several parks around the world. So that was you know again.

23:05.74
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, they are.

23:20.38
Theresa
Little small encouraging updates that the news.

23:20.64
noguiltfangirl
So the way I’m interpreting this is that they also like have a lot of faith in in in this movie like they’re expecting this movie. Maybe they’re trying not to be caught unaware like they were with frozen back in the day and so or in conto right? like they yeah exactly so interest.

23:25.98
Theresa
Yeah.

23:33.53
Theresa
Or even in conto like. Yes, yes, and then the one piece of news we got for Disney California Adventure which was not the most surprising but I’ll be honest, surprised me a little bit. They showed us the vehicle for the avengers campus multiverse attraction and I say this was surprising because they’d been kind of quiet.

23:39.93
noguiltfangirl
Alright that that makes me happy.

23:57.67
noguiltfangirl
Breath.

23:59.17
Theresa
About this attraction since the initial announcement so it was on my list of things where I wasn’t sure if it was still happening so I was I was glad to see it. That’s actually I think Avengers campus I I enjoy it like I I have only had a minimal amount of time there. But I do enjoy what they’ve done with it.

24:03.83
noguiltfangirl
If this was actually going to happen who.

24:17.96
Theresa
But it does need more so I’m very happy they’re still moving hard with this and so the ride vehicle again. So all we really saw but it is a vehicle with um 3 rows of 2 people each sitting in it. So I feel like it might be similarishsh to like the.

24:19.80
noguiltfangirl
Um.

24:34.94
Theresa
Rise of the resistance maybe slightly bigger, but similar to those kinds of vehicles. Um, but yeah like I’m I’m very encouraged right? Ah trackless ride.

24:38.13
noguiltfangirl
That was the the description that they gave they didn’t say rideless track but um, is that right? rideless track. No trackless ride checkles right? That is a trackless ride. Um, so those words were not uttered, but that was my no I know but that was my first.

24:51.40
Theresa
No, and I’m not saying that. But so I’m like the shape the vehicle I.

24:57.13
noguiltfangirl
But because I did say practical sets and so I thought of the ride vehicle moving around like you know Marvel stuff just like we got to go you know on all that stuff at at Rye so I was curious but because they didn’t say that and also to be honest, that ride breaks down. So.

24:59.54
Theresa
Yes, there is.

25:15.81
Theresa
Yeah, my my speculation if I’m and again this is simply speculation is that it would be closer to kind of what they have over in the other park for the other another superhero who has a very pop.

25:17.13
noguiltfangirl
So much I hope they have another option in their little you know Kitty um.

25:31.80
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

25:35.10
Theresa
Sort of the Spiderman the Spiderman ride over at universal I think it’s gonna be like combination of screens and practical and I actually think that ride system makes a lot of sense I think that there’s still a lot you can like move forward that technology like that’s kind of what I’m envisioning for how this will be could be totally wrong, but that’s.

25:44.64
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, okay.

25:51.78
Theresa
That’s what I think we’ll end up seeing based on even just the look of the ride vehicle but that was.

25:54.52
noguiltfangirl
Um, I’m down with that because I also Spiderman is one of my favorite but the universal spuderman is one of my favorite rides. So I I have no no complaints. It does. It’s a fun ride. It is still a great ride. Yeah, agreed agreed. So.

26:03.43
Theresa
And it’s still it still holds up like it’s you know this many years later it’s still a great attraction. So.

26:12.81
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, we’ll see what we’ll see what they end up doing ultimately there but I’m I’m with you on the I don’t think we were actually expecting to get news for this until something big like until a d Twenty thirty x I’m sorry ultimate fan event. Whatever it is until that happened like I honestly didn’t expect to hear anything until that point.

26:23.63
Theresa
Right.

26:31.29
Theresa
Yeah, so again and encouraging small updates but that was really all we got announced for for the California parks.

26:32.40
noguiltfangirl
So that was cool. Um, that is now there was some other stuff. We’re just gonna like we’re not gonna get get into it but there was some other stuff that I saw online. Um, that people are. Hopeful getting excited about this expansion over at Disneyland so there could be I guess there’s some I don’t know it wasn’t permits but it was agreements I don’t know was something that happened you probably paid way more attention to this than I I should have but I didn’t. Um, as to what the the details are but I know there’s some talk and some movement forward for some possible. Yes for Disney Land Forward there it is there. It is the Disneyland forward project and so we do. We did see some movement of that recently.

27:09.91
Theresa
For Disneyland forward which is kind of the name of the overall project. Yes.

27:22.15
noguiltfangirl
Tbd what exactly that will end up being in what will look like but I have seen some people like draw out maps and what they think could happen a third gate at Disneyland Blue Sky Blue sky but I will take it. But.

27:30.47
Theresa
Which yeah, and and that’s obviously again, those are the big kind of announcements blue sky. But and those like that those are the kinds of announcements that they will save for a d 23 the ultimate fan event. Oh my gosh I’m gonna like every time I have to say it I’m gonna have to stop and think for a moment but I yeah like those.

27:41.66
noguiltfangirl
Of Absolutely ah, ah for sure. So we’ll we’ll talk about that when that when we get there. But.

27:50.50
Theresa
Those good are the things that they’ll announce in that that type of venue. Um I will yeah I I do expect. We’ll hear something this coming year.

27:57.63
noguiltfangirl
Just a heads up. There could be ah if you’re thinking. Well how come Disneyland doesn’t get any love Well a we agree but also there could be a lot more coming to our park to to my park. Um, ultimately so we’re just gonna have sit tight until that happens and see what happens. Yeah, so.

28:05.54
Theresa
Oh yes.

28:17.70
noguiltfangirl
All right? which pivoting to Disney World which park would you like to start with shocker. Okay.

28:22.90
Theresa
Ah let’s let’s start with epcot because they had epcot had a lot of mini updates or you know announcements about ongoing things so they did announce that the opening date of Moana Journey of water will be October sixteenth and Mowaana will also be doing a meet and greet there starting the same day and speaking of meet and greets it’s happening now you can Meetandre figment but which I yeah so I we did so the Saturday night at ah.

28:46.52
noguiltfangirl
I’ve seen your picture I saw yeah.

28:52.53
Theresa
Destination d 23 we did do an evening at epcot which did include a a walkthrough of Mawaana Journey of water which is gorgeous I went at Dusk so I got the the nice benefit of seeing it. You know, lit up during the day but then also how the different lighting package will start to ah change the feel of it as it gets in tonight.

29:09.35
noguiltfangirl
Question about mawannaspacewise do you think say a bunch of 5 k runners could go through there.

29:11.74
Theresa
I yes.

29:21.95
Theresa
I Think so because the way that they have it set up I would say because it depends on how dry it is because again it’s a water but you don’t you do not want any slippage, especially during a race. Um, but the way when I was there the way they had it set up where there were It was big enough where people could.

29:27.38
noguiltfangirl
Ah, ah, right.

29:39.84
Theresa
Be there and take pictures but you could also have people kind of walking through if they just wanted to keep moving. So.

29:41.40
noguiltfangirl
Walking by and going through because I when I saw the date which they did announce at this event which is October sixteenth when I saw the date I was like November is just around the corner and we’ll all be there for wine and din weekend and wouldn’t that be something with.

29:57.40
Theresa
Yeah, it is a little windy so it’s not like a straight shot. My only concern was because it is kind of like curves around to make make the most of the space. But it yeah it I would say maybe and maybe even just for like.

29:59.71
noguiltfangirl
Finally, with the walls down at least? yeah.

30:07.90
noguiltfangirl
Maybe.

30:14.30
Theresa
The 5 k like small the smallest amount of possible runners going through it. But.

30:16.45
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, yeah in my head I’m kind of thinking that 10 k might actually be the most spaced out and so just the fewer amount of people at 1 time trying to go through that space. But we’ll see we’ll see when maps come out which should be a.

30:23.23
Theresa
Yeah.

30:35.66
noguiltfangirl
In about a month is what I’m gonna guess so we’ll we’ll have to have our fingers crossed that that happens. Ah, okay, so you saw that and it was beautiful and it was is it is it worth going to see.

30:44.95
Theresa
Yes I think so it yeah like I said it’s.

30:51.98
noguiltfangirl
But worth all the time and energy to put together.

30:55.50
Theresa
I I okay I’m gonna say it this way I think again and it’s so hard to assess this with epcot because again that covid happened when they were starting things so this does not feel like an attraction that took 4 years to do and but again so much of that was out of their control.

30:58.30
noguiltfangirl
I.

31:04.26
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

31:09.80
noguiltfangirl
Right? right.

31:14.77
Theresa
It is really gorgeous I Hope they’re able to keep all of the effects working I know it’s sometimes like just over time can be a challenge especially when you’re dealing with water and pipes and those types of systems I do think it’s a fantastic addition to the park it actually and people know how I feel about epcot and I am sometimes.

31:17.30
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, yeah.

31:32.11
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, and I Ps. Ah.

31:33.79
Theresa
Resistance to I p things in efcot. But I think again this is they found the right balance of how it doesn’t feel in your face that it’s a mojuana attraction. All the characters are there kind of etched into different things. It kind of feels like Hidden Mickey’s around like you’re not going to notice them. Maybe your first time through.

31:43.75
noguiltfangirl
Moana.

31:53.30
Theresa
But you can find a lot of the characters in different areas of this attraction. So again I I think that is this is exactly the way I want to see that in epcot So I am I’m really happy with how it turned out. Um and I guess that end the fiment meet and greet. We got to meet him also at the event and it just.

31:54.22
noguiltfangirl
Cool.

32:01.70
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

32:11.61
Theresa
Made my child heart happy I did not visit. They call him figzilla which I love like the top tall figment. So I did not meet the original figzilla when he was there in the 90 s so this was my first chance actually getting to see him it just it just so full of joy.

32:19.90
noguiltfangirl
Right? cool.

32:27.50
Theresa
I did see that the first day he was in the parks which is that the following day he had like a 3 to 5 hour wait I haven’t seen how bad it’s been since that so I’m hoping I can go again that this is like my goal after doing the half in January I want to do the half and then I want to go and meet figment.

32:33.70
noguiltfangirl
Yep.

32:39.12
noguiltfangirl
Okay I meet pigment.

32:44.62
Theresa
Big man I would expect to be on the wine and dying courses because it’s wine and din and figment is I would expect him to be on the course. Okay.

32:49.67
noguiltfangirl
I would expect him to be at the end I don’t think he’ll be on the course I think he’ll be in the parking lot at the end. Um because otherwise every down that dealt. Yeah, they will be sweeping record numbers of people at the wine and din races. Um, because of figment but but I do.

32:58.98
Theresa
People aren’t going to finish. Ah yeah.

33:07.37
noguiltfangirl
I Think you’re right that he’ll absolutely show up. Um, he’ll be there at the beginning and then he’ll be there at the end and this is your tip if you want pictures of the figment and you don’t want to waste park time but you’re chilling you’re you’re already up anyway and you’re at that you know parking lot. Go ahead.

33:10.48
Theresa
Yeah.

33:21.69
Theresa
Yeah.

33:22.53
noguiltfangirl
Get up even earlier and get into that parking lot even earlier because that line will be huge if he is there which I’m just thinking you’re right I think he will be Yeah, oh totally nobody is nobody is it’s gonna be joyful and happiness and this is.

33:30.91
Theresa
It It makes sense like it’s it’s and it’s such a win like who’s gonna be mad about that. Um, yeah.

33:40.54
noguiltfangirl
From somebody who doesn’t even get the whole thing that thing like I mean he’s fine but like I’m but also I think it’ll bring a lot of people like people get super excited about it. So and my Lucy who’s 12

33:50.22
Theresa
Yes.

33:54.86
noguiltfangirl
Dies over figment. She thinks he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. So she’s super stoked about this. Ah, she’s brilliant. Ah.

34:00.60
Theresa
Because she’s very smart suspect that Lucy um, so one of the other and I feel like this is a big update but we didn’t get a ton of information. Um, so world celebration which is that central area of epcot is opening in december.

34:12.12
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

34:16.48
Theresa
There’s not a firm dates I have a suspicion of when it will be but I think this is worth celebrate worth a world celebration because it means the end of walcott the end of walcott which I know we all really want like I.

34:28.12
noguiltfangirl
Take them down. Yeah.

34:31.82
Theresa
Yes, so I think we’re we’re all looking forward to that they announced the name of the new night times fireworks show is going to be luminous symphony of us that is debuting on December fifth so I would believe that um.

34:44.95
noguiltfangirl
Marathon weekend people. Are you excited yet? like ah, we’re gonna have like a totally different marathon experience for that race.

34:49.50
Theresa
Yes, and and the reason I think the reason I think December Fifth is also going to be the date that it opens though that is Walt Disney’s birthday and the the statue of Walt is going to be there. So I think that’s you know the the significance of unveiling that on his birthday I think that’s the goal I don’t think they’re giving a specific date because.

34:56.10
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, the statue. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

35:06.72
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

35:09.33
Theresa
They don’t want to like last minute announce. They they’re going to miss that but I would I would expect December fifth for all many reasons. Um, yeah, so we have 2 more two more epcot updates so number.

35:15.77
noguiltfangirl
I can sign off on that I can see that for sure.

35:25.22
Theresa
1 is the o g sorein is coming back to evcot for the first time since 2016 I have seen it when it’s come back to Disney California adventure so I didn’t realize it had been this long.

35:31.78
noguiltfangirl
Did yeah I didn’t realize that either until this announcement and I was like well Disney world people. You really haven’t smelled the oranges for oh so long.

35:42.20
Theresa
Some people have never experienced it I’m so I’m excited for everybody who was you know, either not seen it in many years has have never experienced it at all I will be back in a couple weeks. So September Twenty second is when it’s coming back. There is no end date.

35:47.92
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

35:57.99
noguiltfangirl
Yep, and I know I know.

36:00.00
Theresa
So don’t don’t wait on seeing it if you’re there but also who knows how long it will be around I’m but yeah I’m super excited to go back. That is one of my all time favorite attractions. The music especially just resonates with me.

36:13.90
noguiltfangirl
It’s incredible. It really is yeah and and I was actually born in California and graduated high school in California and in between I like lived in Texas and other places. But um, but California that that. Sort and over California really is like nostalgic for me like it brings back home and it brings the whole Disneyland to Disney World anyway I’m so excited about it I hope it’s still there for wine and dying because that’s my next trip so fingers crossed possible.

36:41.66
Theresa
Yeah, and and I think because they didn’t announce an end date I play that I don’t think it’ll be a quick turnaround where they have it like I think it will be around for at least through the end of the year I Yeah but yes I’m very very excited about that and then.

36:47.90
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

36:54.00
noguiltfangirl
I’m kind of hoping through the holidays I think that could be cool to do so.

37:01.53
Theresa
The most surprising news of the day. This is the one that I don’t think anybody was expecting to hear test track 3.0 we are. We are getting a test track update which I’ll say makes sense because the vibes of current test track.

37:08.11
noguiltfangirl
Um, ah sure sure.

37:19.94
Theresa
Are very similar to what they’ve done with Tron in terms of the lighting and I think it has its showing its age. Ah but the surprising part is not even just that we are getting an updated test track which again I’m all for um, they specifically said.

37:22.37
noguiltfangirl
Yep, yeah.

37:36.46
Theresa
That as part of this reimagining of test track they are going back to their past going back to early efcot and bringing in elements of the original attraction in that space world of motion and they want to change the tone to be 1 of optimism which I really think is what has been missing.

37:46.95
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

37:54.65
Theresa
From that attraction because initially it was about you know, doing crashing the cars and kind of how they you know making sure and then it’s like you’re designing your own car and seeing how it does against the elements and like the the bracing part like the end where you go like that’s designing the car and the very end are the 2 best parts of that attraction.

37:57.70
noguiltfangirl
Right.

38:12.92
Theresa
And I think that’s a little sad like it’s it’s not a bad design and not a bad system. But there’s more they can do with it and I’m I’m super excited about the direction they seem to be taking the 1 concept art they showed was like you’re going through a wooded area. So it really does make it seem like it’s gonna be a full full interior.

38:20.45
noguiltfangirl
Chef.

38:32.96
Theresa
Redesign and it’s I’m again just one of those announcements. Not I had no idea this was coming or even something they were considering and I just love it I Love how they announced it I Love that they again finding the the right balance between what people loved about these parks growing up.

38:33.37
noguiltfangirl
Redo.

38:37.49
noguiltfangirl
Interesting.

38:52.22
Theresa
And what people are looking for in the future I This is one of my favorite updates of the day.

38:53.74
noguiltfangirl
Well and it’s it always makes me wonder which part of me is like there’s no way disney is making their decisions based on what they see us talk about on social media. But also. When Sean came out that was one of the first things people were said is okay. Can we please have test track 1.0 again like I mean there was the the the o ges like were coming out and they definitely noticed that that that significant linkage between the 2 and and the looks and so there was some. That and it always just makes me lender like how much people are actually paying attention to stuff like us that we say online that who’s watching our podcast who would like to know? Yeah well. But.

39:35.10
Theresa
Right? right? Yeah exactly I mean we know they’re watching us. We know they’re responding to our thoughts.

39:44.52
noguiltfangirl
Um, but yeah I very much. So yeah I mean when the strike gets cleared up after this drops you’re welcome Iker’s gonna be like oh patty said to fix it. Oh well. Yeah I’m always ready. Okay, now that I know now that she’s made it clear I will I will go.

39:55.91
Theresa
Oh oh,, That’s all I needed that that was what I was looking for. Ah. Yes.

40:04.14
noguiltfangirl
And fix it sure sure guys that’s what’s going to happen. Oh okay, we got 1 park left right? No, we got 2 parks of sorry Hollywood studios. Ah, ah, okay.

40:08.52
Theresa
No, we well no, we’ve got two sort I’ll say well we’ve got 2.5. let’s let’s go we’ll go to magic kingdom there’s there’s a lot to say about magic kingdom. Um, so they they announced I’ll do too many ones. Um the hat box ghost which we we’ve known as coming they kind of talked about that. He’s going to be materializing in November I think is a little bit of a myth because you are missing Halloween with that. It’s a little bit of a bummer but ah, you know we.

40:25.41
noguiltfangirl
And then.

40:33.20
noguiltfangirl
The move e.

40:39.33
noguiltfangirl
I Yeah this one doesn’t make any sense to me I Really thought it was coming with the movie. Um, because they were really wanting to push the movie and the Hotbox ghost is like central figure in the movie if you haven’t seen it and so it’s kind of weird that this has taken so long. However, it’s.

40:39.34
Theresa
Their schedule is their schedule. It’s. Right? And and.

40:58.40
noguiltfangirl
Like you said their timeframe is their timeframe and they got you know? whatever What do we knew right? We don’t know what happened on the back end. Maybe that was absolutely the plan and it just didn’t work. Maybe they paid attention to social media and they said we’re gonna make some changes.

41:13.12
Theresa
Which is interesting. Yeah think there was a specific comment and I I didn’t write this in my notes So we’re winging this um they when they announced it. They said that it was going to be going in the attic which people had feelings about because that is prior to ah.

41:26.90
noguiltfangirl
No, the attic was what we wanted in the hallways sequence. Yeah.

41:29.67
Theresa
That’s where we wanted it. Yeah, it’s sorry yeah so they said it’s gonna be going earlier um in the is it the hallway the hallway scene and because that is prior to when you visit Madame leoda and the ghosts are starting to come alive and so they there was a comment during this presentation specifically.

41:41.98
noguiltfangirl
Ah, here and here.

41:46.46
Theresa
About you never know will where he’ll show up and I don’t know if that was them walking something back if that was their way of justifying him being earlier in the attraction it it was just I picked up on that and I don’t know if it.

41:56.90
noguiltfangirl
Just a comment. Okay so we might be surprised that his location or who knows maybe he shows up in multiple places like who knows we’ll see.

42:00.84
Theresa
Yeah, Offhand comment or if it’s an intentional comment so we’ll see but. Multiple places. Yes, So yeah, we’ll see so more to come Um, but than the other again the other non non update Update Um, they did mention the blue sky stuff that they had brought up at um.

42:14.88
noguiltfangirl
Okay, okay.

42:25.65
Theresa
D twenty p expo for the beyond big thunder mountain um, and they actually made the comment that like somebody who used to be with imagineer has come back and is now leading that area and he was like well if I was here like we never would have announced things that are just blue sky and I think a lot of people were frustrated by how all of that information was presented at t 23 expo because it was very confusing.

42:27.80
noguiltfangirl
Right.

42:39.70
noguiltfangirl
Oh yeah.

42:45.28
Theresa
So they essentially said that you know the the beyond big thunder mountain expansion is still happening. They do not know what the final plans for that are going to be yet, but they are very. They are very very excited about all of the work that is coming to Walt Disney World and I think that expansion in general. So they they they are very hy up about it and again I think this is another or one of those big announcements. Even if they have it narrowed down and they feel like they know what it’s going to be. They’re going to save something like that for for d 23 expo d 23 the fan event. Um, so the third 2.

43:06.81
noguiltfangirl
Um, cool.

43:14.67
noguiltfangirl
D 23 yeah Yeah the fan event.

43:23.25
Theresa
2 other I think very very talked about updates for magic kingdom will go into the one that I think most people are really excited for. There’s also one that there’s just there’s a lot. Um, so they don’t.

43:27.92
noguiltfangirl
Ah.

43:38.95
noguiltfangirl
Ah.

43:38.99
Theresa
That ah pirates of the caribbean is going to be getting a tavern lounge area in adventure land and if you did not see the real that they posted with this announcement when they made it with a bunch of the adventure land cast members doing the Jack Sparrow run around the adventure land. It’s super cute.

43:49.40
noguiltfangirl
Yes.

43:57.56
Theresa
I think I loved it That was just such a great great way of making that announcement. Um, ah when I the friend I was there with when we were talking because they said the word Tavern we were initially thinking that okay that might go over to tortuga Tavern because Tavern Tavern and that’s an underutilized space. That’s also a very big space.

44:10.61
noguiltfangirl
Right.

44:16.21
Theresa
And Tom Bricker of Disney tourist blog when he was going through his thoughts about it. He made a really really insightful point that in theory because we know Tiana’s bayou adventure is coming to that corner. It would make sense.

44:30.15
noguiltfangirl
Um, and.

44:32.46
Theresa
To use like part of like the pecos spills area and tortuga tavern if they kind of turned that continued the Tiana theme and turned that into a restaurant similar to like what they’re doing over in Disneyland I could see that like using that as like a bridge between the frontierland and the inventorland side of things. So his theory.

44:40.78
noguiltfangirl
Oh.

44:47.37
noguiltfangirl
Yes.

44:51.22
Theresa
Where this is going to go is in the um, the pirates leak space that’s kind of connected to the the gift shop area for pirates for the caribbean and to imagine it being similar to what we have at Oga’s canteen in Disney’s hollywood studios

44:52.92
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

45:06.78
noguiltfangirl
That’s initially when I thought it I didn’t even think of location or where it would be but I assumed that it would be ogas but but make it pirates like we’re we’re gonna be go from space pirates to like real pirates and and that was my visual for this which also.

45:13.46
Theresa
Yes, and they met mentioned right? yes.

45:24.31
noguiltfangirl
Means more alcohol at Disney world.

45:24.47
Theresa
Which and they didn’t mention they did’s no comment. They did mention it being for all ages which not that Ogas isn’t like yes so they there was no no mention of alcohol at all. So there’s a tbd on that. But they you know they’ve interested at some of the the sitdown meals.

45:30.36
noguiltfangirl
Oh oga is 2 Yeah.

45:41.26
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, it would be a big shift like an actual bar in Magic Kingdom essentially but it would be wild. Yeah oh I agree.

45:43.53
Theresa
So it’s not out of the realm of possibility but that would be a big shift for Magic Kingdom but if they do it in Pirates league that is out of the way. So I think if they’re going to do that. That’s the best location to put it in so it’s not yeah and and.

45:59.72
noguiltfangirl
That’s a great place to put it. Yeah, absolutely.

46:03.70
Theresa
My favorite announcements that I don’t think has gotten enough. Love is they announced the Barker bird is coming back and you can see him if you were in the pirates of the Caribbean attraction when you’re going under the bridge and there’s like the hairy hairy foot pirate. The bird is there and there used to be an animatronic of the bird outside of the attraction that had.

46:11.80
noguiltfangirl
Ah.

46:14.59
noguiltfangirl
Yes, okay.

46:22.11
Theresa
Like just a few recordings that he would like just they would come out every so often. So if you were in the queue or getting ready to go by. He would say a few things I’m sure he’s he’s obviously gonna be getting a new script. But so I figure that’s good Deeja yeah, he’s gonna be the dj re of of that area. So place said i.

46:33.21
noguiltfangirl
So this is DJRex right d ah.

46:39.98
Theresa
We know this I listen to park background music a lot and I have listened through the whole Barker bird spiel that used to happen. So even though I never saw it in person I I have like a weird offshoot of nostalgia for it because I have spent so much time listening to this.

46:47.51
noguiltfangirl
And yeah.

46:56.42
Theresa
So I’m I’m very excited more than like the lounge bar aspect I’m excited for the Barker bird.

47:02.98
noguiltfangirl
I You know I think I think there’s something there I think there that could be fun. Um, you know part of me is like do we need this there probably not especially if there’s gonna be alcohol. But also I’m not a hater. To it and I you know we’re already serving it in the restaurants and nobody is walking around wasted as they do epcot So I Don’t think it’s yeah I don’t think it’s going to be a big issue I think this will be fine if that’s what they do so.

47:24.00
Theresa
Right? And and I met. It’s gonna be similar where you know you get to drink maximum at Ogas you know you have a time yes and I and I think this kind of goes into what I was saying earlier about celebrating the parks like. Pirates you know pirates of the Caribbean does have you know the film franchise which is you know, wildly popular but it started out as a theme park ride at Thrme Park attraction and I’m I am just so excited about them getting back into this the things we’ve created for the theme parks are just as valuable.

47:44.70
noguiltfangirl
Absolutely. Yeah.

47:57.25
noguiltfangirl
Right.

48:00.60
Theresa
As these films and characters we’ve created for you know for entertainment. So I’m I’m so excited. They’re kind of going back and focusing on their own Ip characters that they’ve come up with for the parks and finding ways to build more around that So I’m I’m excited about this I feel like it’s going to be.

48:03.43
noguiltfangirl
Right.

48:19.66
Theresa
You know that hot ticket item gonna be hard to get into for a while. Ah but even oga’s now is you can always find time for ogas. So I think it’s I think it over after a period of time. Yeah, so there’s one more. Update.

48:21.62
noguiltfangirl
Ah, oh it’s gonna be hard to. But yeah for sure for sure because everyone’s gonna be interested. You can give it a year you’re good you’ll be able to get in. Okay, so there’s 1 more thing that’s happening at in magic kingdom. And if anyone doesn’t know Teresa you probably don’t recognize what a big big big fan girll she is of the stupid bears that are yeah um.

48:38.20
Theresa
I.

48:52.45
Theresa
Ah, they’re very good patty I Yes I country fair jimie.

48:57.39
noguiltfangirl
So yes, the country bear Jimri is getting a whole thing but they’re keeping the bears.

49:02.74
Theresa
There? Yes so sometime in 2024 country bear jamboree is getting an update and I’ll be honest I actually did not write the name of the the new version but it’s going to be a you know, still musical variety show the so the bears are staying the one of the bears is getting a new name.

49:12.12
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

49:20.13
noguiltfangirl
I Saw that but.

49:22.13
Theresa
Liver Lips Mcgraw is now Romeo so there’s that but they the bears will be singing country versions of Disney songs. The 1 sample that they played is obviously the bare necessities that’s a come on you. You have to do that. Ah, but it’s it.

49:35.42
noguiltfangirl
Of course, of course.

49:41.48
Theresa
The the country bears that we know and not everybody loves are are not long for this where they’re gonna be hibernating for a bit I love it. So if you haven’t heard the story a couple years ago I took patty for her fish first visit and she knows that the Disney I like.

49:49.26
noguiltfangirl
They’re they’re gonna they’re gonna go down for a bit for a long winter snap.

50:00.88
Theresa
Sometimes a little out there I like the things that are you know seem maybe just a little bit off which the country bears. A perfect example of that and she was just like no you walk in. She just no, never never again.

50:06.84
noguiltfangirl
Here first.

50:13.38
noguiltfangirl
Ah, and and and and the only other time I’ve been through the country where Jaee was when we went trickor-reating ah through the treat shell that went through there. Um, yeah it it was a thing. It was definitely interesting and um I. I Appreciate people that love the things that they Love. There’s nothing wrong with that. That is the fan girl in me I appreciate that but I was it was like this is a no for me dog like it’s out there. It is. It’s Wild. It’s dated. Yeah, absolutely.

50:40.00
Theresa
And I get it I it’s it is of a different time if it had come out like if it had come out the time like when I had taken patty there if it was like Brand new attraction and that’s what it was I would be horrified like I can be honest like this is not a.

50:51.47
noguiltfangirl
Right? right.

50:58.90
Theresa
Not what you picture as being a Disney attraction which partially why I like it but I’m I’m struggling with it a little bit like I’m obviously sad to be losing it. But I think this is the best case scenario.

50:59.60
noguiltfangirl
No no.

51:09.90
noguiltfangirl
Of course.

51:15.23
Theresa
An update that we could have had because like you said the bears are staying that we are still getting that in frontierland if they can keep like the the banter or bring some of the banter back because they did cut some of it for timing if they can find a way to maybe like cut have 1 or 2 fewer songs.

51:17.46
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

51:25.98
noguiltfangirl
My.

51:33.37
Theresa
And more of that banter between the characters I think that’s where the attraction really shines anyway. So I am trying to look towards the positive and be hopeful I I again this is the best case scenario that I think we could have gotten it very easily. They could have just gotten rid of it.

51:43.64
noguiltfangirl
Ah.

51:49.36
noguiltfangirl
Listen I’m thrilled. Yeah yeah, yeah, no I’m I’m thrilled with it that they didn’t get rid of it. Um, for the historical nonsense of it all. Um.

51:50.30
Theresa
And put in like a toy story review like they could have done something else. So.

52:03.82
noguiltfangirl
But I definitely felt like it was screaming for an update and it needs to be something more than just an aird conditioned spot. So yeah, so it’s it’s gonna be good I think this is a positive thing and I will I will not be first in line I’ll let you crazy go first.

52:08.52
Theresa
Yeah, it’s it’s it’s time like I I can.

52:20.94
noguiltfangirl
But I will definitely go in and see it when it’s new and refreshed and let you know my review on that when it should happen. Oh interesting. Okay Teresa doesn’t do that? yeah.

52:26.88
Theresa
This this might be 1 that I do watch before going in person that is if you I typically will wait I typically will wait to see so experience something in person for the first time but this is one I might just just to see give let myself like pre-emotion. See facey if I can figure out how I’m go to feel in person when I go ah so yes so I think again, we’ll we’ll see cautiously optimistic sort of but again bears my bears are gonna be there. They’ll still be walking around frontier land maybe in their new Their new outfits so we we still got some bears now. We’re gonna.

52:48.19
noguiltfangirl
Fair.

52:56.88
noguiltfangirl
Ish chef.

53:05.82
noguiltfangirl
Ah, okay, okay.

53:06.20
Theresa
Go to hollywood studios now which really did not get any updates beside the um, the be the the star tours announcement with theoka going into new scene. But the reason I want to stop in hollywood studios now and at this point before we get to the biggest news of the day is so I didn’t. Really bring it up but but during this entire parks panel. You had the muppets coming out and they did some really really cute like scenes interacting with Josh They interacted with like the different imagines. So basically when they were talking about each park. The muppets came out. And they were there specifically they had Fozzy come out after they announced the country bear of Jimoree update and for a moment my heart stopped after this update because I was so nervous I was like oh no, they just announced like a change to an opening day attraction for something.

53:50.97
noguiltfangirl
Right.

53:57.71
Theresa
And I was like if this is leading up to a change to Muppet Vision three d I would have started crying right? then and there it is something I have I am very very strongly attached to not just for the attraction itself. But also because it’s one of the last things Jim Henson ever did before he passed he. Didn’t even live to see it introduced into the parks. He passed away during production of it and I just I would have been so heartbroken in that moment like especially right, especially after the country bears news to hear that you know if it’s more muppets.

54:24.20
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, the only thing I wish they would announce is a refurb of those seats.

54:35.80
Theresa
Yeah, that’s it Yeah, like updating the the the theater I am okay with.

54:37.45
noguiltfangirl
The seats are disgusting like the last time I sat down there I was literally like and I’m not like a super germapho but like I’m like yeah pretty too about like you wash your hands afterwards. It’s fine, but these seats I was like you you opening day attraction seats like let’s get.

54:52.71
Theresa
Um, right, it could um you know Muppets can always ah Muppets always need some love I I would be happy.

54:56.10
noguiltfangirl
Let’s let’s clean. These let’s get new. They just need to be reupholstered it. They’re awful abs. They do right.

55:05.23
Theresa
They did have Sam Egle come out Jane would ah Jane would love this. They had samugel to come out and talk about you know the american adventure and his restaurant and being the best thing and I was for his half second I was like oh are they updating american adventure to put in muffets because I will watch that read down for that. But again, so.

55:18.19
noguiltfangirl
Ah I would totally watch that. Okay, it’s okay.

55:22.90
Theresa
Really no updates for Disney Hollywood studios but I I just needed to everybody to know how thankful I am that was like we just imagine hearing is like oh not owns the muppets but imagineering is like responsible for how the muppets get used within the parks right now. So for them to just.

55:34.48
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

55:39.39
Theresa
Have them commenting on the park updates I thought was a fantastic use for them but in my head I was like oh no, oh no, let’s get through and yes, so some muppets yeah some muppets are safe. So now we we’re gonna talk about ah Disney’s animal kingdom which did have the biggest.

55:43.58
noguiltfangirl
That’s fun. The she’s gonna draw on me. Yeah, all right.

55:58.26
Theresa
I think biggest news of the day and not what people were expecting I think earlier in the week they announced a lot of updates and showed more artwork for things coming to the international parks and I believe it’s Hong Kong that’s getting those utopia lands now it might is.

56:00.17
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

56:11.25
noguiltfangirl
Yes.

56:15.30
Theresa
1 of the one of the asian parks is getting these utopia land. Okay, um, but so they when they showed that artwork. The ride vehicle is the same style of ride vehicle as is used in dinosaur and we know at the 23 expo they had talked about you know.

56:16.24
noguiltfangirl
I think it’s I think it’s Hong Kong

56:31.90
Theresa
Plans that are coming to animal kingdom to you know Reimagine Dino and Usa so when I saw that I was like oh they’re announcing all of this now and showing this artwork now. Shanghai thank you I was like ah yes I knew it was again and it was an asian park but I was blanking so shanghai.

56:40.82
noguiltfangirl
Shanghai not Hong Kong shanghai yeah shanghai yep I know I I was again Hong Kong too obviously I’m Nope Shanghai

56:51.20
Theresa
Yes, but so they like said the concept art there I was like they’re releasing all of this right now. So that way they could be like and it’s coming to Dino land which I would not have been my first choice so when they did bring up Zootopia at Disney’s animal kingdom they had acknowledged like we so we thought it might go 1 place. But we have a different idea so instantly like ears perk up and they’d started talking about a Zootopia show coming to the tree of life and initially as they were talking about it I thought that they just meant like a projection show and then they mentioned a clas how house our animatronic which was like oh with this is it’s and it’s it’s tough to be a bug.

57:29.52
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, they are.

57:29.98
Theresa
Like they are redoing the theater show which I I don’t dislike that show I think it it has its merits particularly if you’re bringing people who have never been to well Disney World it has its merits to get that their reaction not knowing what’s going to happen. Um, but I feel like it’s it.

57:39.27
noguiltfangirl
For sure or sure.

57:46.77
Theresa
Again and it’s kind of like the the evolution of parks if you’re finding something something to update rather than add new I think that’s a really smart place to put Zootopia they’re talking about. It’s going to talk about the different biomes that animals live in. So again, it’s not just putting characters in the park for the sake to put them in the park. It’s relevant.

58:02.62
noguiltfangirl
This has to make you happy from that perspective because I know that that matters and and I think it does matter I think it matters to like the the theme of like epcot to animal kingdom those 2 parks in particular.

58:04.80
Theresa
Ah yes I.

58:19.41
noguiltfangirl
Is to give you a little bit of education or to tie it into some of these things and so I like that too I didn’t I didn’t realize that was the I don’t know the topic of this of the show but I was like Zootopia and animal kingdom I can buy it. Yeah.

58:20.23
Theresa
Right.

58:30.75
Theresa
I can get like it say I think of all the parks. It does make sense to be there. But again, it’s not not going to be a shock to anybody to hear that parks like epcot and animal Kingdom in particular I don’t want lands.

58:48.57
noguiltfangirl
Sure I get it.

58:48.63
Theresa
Focused around a single property. You know you can say what you want like Pandora again I I not that I’m not a fan of the land itself I think it’s gorgeous. It is. It’s beautifully done. But I in those situations I wonder like okay when when we have.

58:54.77
noguiltfangirl
You know how I feel about Pandora.

59:08.90
Theresa
Collectively moved on from this I don’t know if it has like just the lasting nature of something like frontier land I don’t I don’t I’m curious like at what point if they have to reimagine that area. How do you do that without starting from scratch and kind of so I’m I’m just not a fan of like.

59:13.93
noguiltfangirl
Right? I hear you.

59:24.30
noguiltfangirl
Yep.

59:28.16
Theresa
Single I P lands I will give Galaxy’s edge a pass because it does it. It is more immersive and it does feel so large that to me it doesn’t feel like a single property and Star Wars is also its own its own thing I like.

59:35.31
noguiltfangirl
Are.

59:43.12
noguiltfangirl
I Kind of feel like between Star Wars and um even Avengers campus like the same idea. Also both of those properties have been around for a long like they’ve proven. They’re staying power right? Um, and so I yeah I can.

59:47.22
Theresa
Enters.

59:52.66
Theresa
Right.

59:59.30
noguiltfangirl
I see where you’re going with that and I am nodding going. She’s not wrong and.

01:00:00.98
Theresa
And it’s in but and to the point we’re not going to talk about galaxies edge being in Disneyland we’re going to separate that from this conversation but galaxy’s edge being in Disney Hollywood studios makes sense if it’s literally a theme park about walking through the movies or being immersed in movie magic. So again, it.

01:00:08.13
noguiltfangirl
Um, right makes sense. Yeah, absolutely.

01:00:20.83
Theresa
Those kinds of parks. It makes sense avengers campus and California Adventure is a little bit of a stretch. But again I think the direction they’re taking that park. You know it’s kind of going in that same walking through these immersive places that you’ve seen on the screen you’re now in them.

01:00:31.12
noguiltfangirl
I Think that’s the difference is exactly I think yeah fair so that’s all that matters. Ah.

01:00:38.10
Theresa
I get it? Ah, but for something like animal kingdom. It’s just not what I want and obviously that’s that’s what Disney should be planning around is what I but so so all of this all of this discussion to say they did announce what the area is going to be for the replacement for Dino Land Usa and it is going to be themed around the tropical Americas which is the like Northern South america up through central America and I am just so ecstatic that it’s a land that is based on an actual real world. Place.

01:01:03.88
noguiltfangirl
Oh okay.

01:01:13.93
Theresa
I think that that’s an area that is largely very very underrepresented at Walt Disney World if you think you you have the Mexico Pailion in epcot. But that’s about it and I think you know South America is not represented anywhere other than food and wine booths. So I’m I’m thrilled that we are getting. Just that location that part of the world bringing it to all Disney world. Yes, yes.

01:01:32.44
noguiltfangirl
Well it tyes in also with Asia and Africa and I mean in the sense that like we’re looking at real lands right? and so it does make sense from a bigger animal kingdom theming to do it that way versus like Rando Pandora and Zotopia. So.

01:01:49.74
Theresa
And it’s it’s it’s area because the 1 thing that Pandora is missing is actual animals and animal exhibits and the way that you kind of have and you can walk through like I’m really hoping we get another a walkthrough similar like to the maharaja jungle trek or gorilla falls.

01:01:51.73
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

01:01:58.46
noguiltfangirl
Yeah.

01:02:04.44
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

01:02:08.38
Theresa
Worries I’m like I’m hoping we get another walk throughugh area. That’s my favorite part of animal kingdom to be honest, like those those walk throughugh trails I love them south american um, which would also mean because that’s where the Amazon is we might get a slo which slots are my favorite animal for anyone who does not know if if we are getting rid of dinosaurs.

01:02:11.62
noguiltfangirl
With South American and central american.

01:02:26.28
Theresa
Give me a slough even trade like yeah there is I love them? Yes, ah but yes, and then the other thing again, not not an official announcement.

01:02:28.60
noguiltfangirl
Ah, ah, we won’t We won’t even be mad about it just make the slo happen and listen sloths are so cute I would be so yeah I would be down with like a sloth exhibit that’d be so awesome.

01:02:42.41
noguiltfangirl
Right.

01:02:44.69
Theresa
But they did after they made this they kind of panned out because again there were a lot of a lot of things that were discussed for being in the dinaland area during d 23 expo and so they kind of panned out to show 2 things that they have phrased as being considered and one of those should not be surprised to anybody which is an incanto attraction.

01:03:02.64
noguiltfangirl
Sure.

01:03:04.74
Theresa
Ah, they in the artwork. All they really showed was the cassida so this could be many things I personally would hope for a dark ride because I think number 1 ammo kingdom needs a dark ride and I think that lends itself so well to one with like practical effects in animatronics.

01:03:10.25
noguiltfangirl
Um, yeah, yes.

01:03:18.44
noguiltfangirl
Absolutely.

01:03:21.79
Theresa
So I’m really really hoping that ends up being a dark ride of some kind.

01:03:26.40
noguiltfangirl
And wasn’t the incanto traction confirmed slash it out slash something I just remember ah Linmanuel Miranda saying something like yeah, we’re we’re doing something with Disney within inconto and so.

01:03:36.91
Theresa
Yeah I know he had talked about like working with music. Yeah I can’t remember exact phrasing he had either. But we we’ve known it’s a it’s a home run for them to do like it’s a win for them to put in like this and I’m glad they are not waiting to do it like I’m.

01:03:41.66
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, yeah, but but something was confirmed dish that it was yes. Yes.

01:03:55.11
Theresa
It’s you know that’s something that they’ve struggled with is sometimes kind of like seeing what longevity something has before before bringing it to the parks I’m glad that they are trying to get this in. It’s not obviously not going to be in super quickly because it’s gonna take time to develop. But I’m glad that they are kind of you know considering well’ll.

01:04:04.88
noguiltfangirl
Right does.

01:04:12.94
Theresa
Being They’re considering making sure are to.

01:04:13.46
noguiltfangirl
Considered It’s a consideration So at listen I’m I’m going to go with this that um it makes sense. It could happen like let’s let’s just wish this into existence and see some inconto over there I’d I’d be down with that.

01:04:26.68
Theresa
Yes, and then the other thing that for many years many years people have been wishing something into existence specifically in the the dinoland usa area because.

01:04:39.75
noguiltfangirl
It might have been me this weekend on the ride because literally when we were on this ride I was like I just want this at Disney World and I really did say that and then we got this consideration coming out. Ah.

01:04:49.34
Theresa
Yes, so for anybody who doesn’t know the dinosaur attraction again same ride vehicle and general ride system as Indiana Jones Adventure over in Disneyland which I think anybody can acknowledge that Indiana Jones Adventure is the superior version of this attraction.

01:04:56.68
noguiltfangirl
No.

01:05:05.36
noguiltfangirl
Oh a thousand percent there’s no it’s yeah yeah, no I don’t dislike dinosaurs but it’s like when when you’ve been on if you go on dinosaur and then you go on Indiana Jones you’re just like because it is.

01:05:09.18
Theresa
It’s I Love dinosaurs but Indian just.

01:05:24.20
noguiltfangirl
Unbelievably wild. Absolutely how? yeah, it’s really bad. Yep.

01:05:24.30
Theresa
You can actually see what’s happening on the ride which complaint that I like will have about other things. But I think the it’s just the lighting on dinosaur is so Hard. It’s aside from a few areas to tell what’s happening and indie.. There’s like a few scenes where like when you’re you’re when you’re going through like the massive room the way that some things are end up being lit ah because of you know fire and other effects like it’s just it looks really Cool. You have moments of seeing these giant spaces and not realizing how detailed they really are so.

01:05:50.56
noguiltfangirl
It’s so cool. You see a lot more. Yeah, yep, yep yep, this is exciting.

01:05:57.11
Theresa
They started to play a little bit. Ah the indian jones music again when they panned out you don’t showed that part of the concept art. Be basically where where dinosaur is is where they are envisioning in Indiana Jones themed attraction.

01:06:08.71
noguiltfangirl
Were you’re people mad about this because I know how people feel about things and um for the record dis Twitter feels very differently than like a regular park person who just is going to do Disney once a year right? and then not think about it again. Um, and there’s.

01:06:19.18
Theresa
Yeah.

01:06:26.80
noguiltfangirl
Nothing wrong with that I am not dissing anybody on disfiter I’m just saying like these are the people that have very strong feelings about things like this. Absolutely absolutely Absolutely So what was the overall kind of vibe in the room when this was it a ah or was it a oh.

01:06:32.40
Theresa
They’re and they’re the quickest to share their opinions with you like the quickest to do it. I. No I think people were really excited I I do think I again dinus every everything in the parks has its fans like every even things I know people who were harmonious like super fans and really annoyed about harmonious being taken out.

01:06:44.70
noguiltfangirl
Okay, so. Who.

01:06:53.74
noguiltfangirl
Yeah, the 3 of them that exist. Yeah sure.

01:06:57.52
Theresa
So yeah, so like every everything in the parks has a fan. Um, yeah, so like there’s there’s an ah audience for everything. But again I think dinosaur even like the the current iteration of dinosaur that we have is not what we originally had when it was countdown to extinction.

01:07:11.39
noguiltfangirl
Right.

01:07:15.65
Theresa
And I think there are people who are like well that was the superior version because it was it was that I never wrote that but I know people were like that was a legitimately scary attraction like people they and they think they felt like they had to change it because it was a little over the top for too intenses for some like like you know kids who are tall enough to ride.

01:07:20.97
noguiltfangirl
Right? It was a little too intense.

01:07:34.36
Theresa
But even like Nathan the current version my my youngest nephew terrified like he cannot. He does not do that attraction. He like hides and like hold squeezes my hand. so yeah so I think this is I I actually have not really heard negative reaction to I think to any of the animal kingdom updates.

01:07:40.15
noguiltfangirl
He doesn’t do that one got it. Ah.

01:07:47.74
noguiltfangirl
Okay.

01:07:52.86
Theresa
Again I feel like everyone’s approaching this as of all the things they could have announced these all feel like the best case scenarios and a way to you. You can’t make every single person happy but finding elements to bring into that kind of like redesign and redevelopment to make the most.

01:08:02.38
noguiltfangirl
Write.

01:08:11.84
Theresa
Number of people happy and to give people from different fandoms like people who like the parks and people who like being in animal kingdom because of you know, exploring actual locations around the world. You have something for them by bringing in like you know the tropical americas for people who do want more characters to be in the Parks. You’re giving that to them. Within you know, certain parts of this of this land. So I feel again I said it earlier they seem to be finding the right balance of how to incorporate what anybody who is coming to the parks is looking for which is a really really hard thing to do when you have fans from.

01:08:31.95
noguiltfangirl
Right.

01:08:46.55
noguiltfangirl
For sure.

01:08:49.96
Theresa
70 s onwards or even you know going back for parks specific fans going back from the 50 s who like you know or over at Disneyland you I think they are doing the best they can and this is why I’m saying I’m really excited about the direction. They’re taking things. Because it is. You know it’s I feel like I am getting what I want I feel like other people who do just like love the movies and want to be in their movies like they’re getting what they want to and I’m I’m really excited for once they can kind of confirm what is happening in this area and what will get my personal opinion. Is you know assuming it’s an Indiana Jones attraction I don’t think it’ll be a direct clone of Indiana Jones Adventure because that is it. You know again, it’s not dated but it is a pretty old attraction at this point even though they’ve been giving it updates. So I think they’re going to find you know a way to enhance it and maybe give us the superior version. Ah.

01:09:28.28
noguiltfangirl
Yes, yeah. Sure.

01:09:40.85
noguiltfangirl
A it could happen. It could happen I’m down with that. Let’s let’s make some big changes. Let’s have a new storyline.

01:09:44.41
Theresa
Like yeah, but yeah, so I’m I’m excited to see what they do with it. Ah, and I even had somebody mention that something like I know that they had mentioned for their family like the dig site that’s over there is something they were really sad to tentatively lose because that’s a great area for kids to run around and explore.

01:10:02.93
noguiltfangirl
Archaeology baby. Ah.

01:10:04.90
Theresa
Or exactly and like if they if it’s indie like or even in conto like there’s a lot that they can do to keep that kind of attraction for kids who like need to need some time and space to run around and get their energy out.

01:10:09.35
noguiltfangirl
They totally could Yeah, it’s a it’s a great like downtime like mom and dad can just chill and the kids can go crazy and have some fun and do all the digging.

01:10:19.32
Theresa
Well in the artwork. The artwork had some trees and water which Dinah land is a parking lot much needed just like you know atmosphere enhancements to that area as well. So it.

01:10:26.95
noguiltfangirl
Hundred percent okay

01:10:33.85
Theresa
Like concept Hard is never what something actually ends up looking like but just from what they showed of like this is now a part of the park where I feel like I would be happy to just kind of like walk through and sit down. They they showed like a big seating area so you can imagine that you know, um.

01:10:50.60
noguiltfangirl
Oh it’s gonna get some some update. Yeah you know I haven’t I haven’t made a point of going back to Animal Kingdom since they took away kitetails. So.

01:10:50.75
Theresa
Restaurant Osaurus is going to get you know some love and kind of so I’m I’m very excited.

01:11:01.56
Theresa
Oh is there a way that we can work it back. Coate tail. Can we now that would have been the top announcement of the day bad coate tales. They’re saving that for. They’re saving that for Expo because it’s that big of an announcement.

01:11:06.84
noguiltfangirl
I Know honestly the crowd would have gone wild if we got tie tales back maybe that maybe that’s what it is but I just that was such a. Fun Joyful little show and I’m sure there were some reasons that they got rid of it but it was it was it was Amazing. It was amazing. But um I am I’m super happy you know, just as ah, again and not the crazy nerd that you are, but as somebody who does want to keep going to these parks and wants to see things. Growing and moving forward and changing I’m happy with everything that they’ve announced so Far. So Let’s go let’s make it happen. Baby.
