Imagineer Podcast - Episode 21 - Disney’s Extinct Attractions

June 16, 2018

Whether your first trip to Walt Disney World was 1971 or 2001, there are attractions that have come and gone throughout the course of the park's history. As Walt Disney once said, "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." While the changes made are often for the best (and the new attractions are ones that we grow to love), there is always a part of us that misses our old favorites. In today's episode, we explore that very topic to identify the extinct attractions at Disney that we miss or missed.

Special thanks to John and Ann Marie for lending their voices and opinions to this show! You can learn more about their podcast (Central Florida Sights and Sounds) by visiting http://www.cfsas.com.

Imagineer Podcast - Episode 20 - Top 10 Disney Soundtracks

June 2, 2018

One of the many reasons we love Disney movies is the amazing soundtracks that countless artists, musicians, producers and composers work so hard to create. The music of the Disney movies helps to capture the emotions we feel while watching our favorite films, sometimes without even a single lyric. In this podcast episode, a small group of us sit around the table to chat about our top 10 Disney soundtracks, including music from Disney's animated and live action films, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars. Some choices might even surprise you. Special thanks to Joanna, Jenn and Sara for lending their voices and opinions.
