Hello and welcome to the Enchanted Ears Podcast, where we discuss anything and everything Disney. Before we jump into the main topic, it's time for a little Disney News! The opening date for Rodeo Roundup BBQ in Toy Story Land is March 23. Disneyland's Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway opened last week. As per the usual, Disneyland got an upgraded version of the ride with a few small additional scenes and incredible queue theming. In the latest installment of “Bob Iger thinks the parks are too pricey,” the price of Savvi's Lightsabers and droids have been decreased. We love how he's making the parks more affordable and wonder why this isn't in the news more. Finally, Disney has patented head-mounted camera display for costumed characters. The invention will give cast members better visibility out of their costumes. It's officially the Walt Disney Company's 100th anniversary celebration, so this week we're talking about what we see as the company's highlights over the past 100 years. We discuss what failures led to the thriving Disney company we know today, how Walt's loss of Oswald gave rise to Mickey, the innovations made by the company in order to improve entertainment as we know it, the contributions of Eisner and Iger, and how Disney's changed our culture and the world. It's an absolutely bananas 100 years. Here's to 100+ more! As always, thank you so much for listening! Don't forget to check us out on Instagram, Facebook and Youtube or submit a question/topic for us to discuss on a future episode or support us on Patreon. Have a magical week!
During Bob Iger's 15+ years leading Disney, he's given small business owners something to look up to and learn from. In this first episode of a two-part series, we're taking the leadership lessons Iger discusses in his book, The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company. We'll dive into each of the 8 lessons that Iger shares and explain how you can also use these lessons in your own small business!
This week on the show, Bob Iger makes some big moves to win back customer trust! Universal Studios reveals two new park projects! These, along with so many Disney policy changes and park announcements that your heads will spin T-cup style! Don't fret Disnerds, the gang is here to hold your hand through it all! And since we are covering so much news…we thought we'd also talk shoes and booze, because they rhyme with news. No really…that's what we did. So, for your enjoyment, we are discussing our picks for the best footwear to deploy when you are hitting Disney and Universal parks AND we are creating brand new signature park beverages for the adults! It's Disney News, Shoes and Booze and it's right hear on We Like Theme Parks!!
We made it! A full year of Rat Castle comes to a close, but the new keeps coming!

Is the American Dream dead? When Abigail Disney, the granddaughter of one of the founders of Disney, received a message from a worker at Disney's flagship theme park, she discovered that some employees were earning one two-thousandth of the earnings of CEO Bob Iger. She wrote to Iger, testified in Congress and ultimately made a film, “The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales.” In one scene she asks a group of workers, “How many of you know someone that works at Disney that sleeps in their car?” Abigail underscores the need to tax the top 1%, speaks out against corporate greed and calls out the policies and values that created such gaping inequality at Disney and across the business world. The median net worth of the top 10 billionaires in the world has nearly tripled over the last decade while most Americans are earning less than their parents and economic mobility is on the decline. Abigail Disney is an Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker, an activist and the granddaughter of Roy Disney who co-founded the company with Walt. The film, co-directed with Kathleen Hughes is available for streaming now. Laura and Abigail ask how long can corporations sustain the “American Dream” at the expense of their workers.“There was a woman who played Winnie the Pooh for many years . . . six days a week, who died in her car. That was really a galvanizing moment for a lot of the folks that I spoke to, because the wrongness of this was all concentrated in this one moment.” - Abigail Disney “Absent collective bargaining, we are all subject to the tender mercies of Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. Collective bargaining is the only way workers have to democratically represent their own interests in the workplace.” - Abigail Disney Guest: Abigail Disney: Documentary Filmmaker & Social Activist; Co-Director & Producer, The American Dream & Other Fairy Tales; Founder Fork Films; Producer & Host "All Ears" Full conversation & show notes are available at Patreon.com/theLFShowThe Show is listener and viewer supported thanks to you!

Welcome back Bob Iger! Who wasn't happy to hear the news that he was returning to lead the Walt Disney Company. But will his return bring good change back to the Disney Company? Join the dudes this week to hear how they feel things will be now that Mr. Iger is now back at the helm.
This week on an all-new episode of Drunk Distory presents ‘The Dark Ride', we continue our deep dive into hotels around the theme park world with Drunk Distory's Resort Round Up. Today, get ready to retreat to this 60s version of the ultra-modern aesthetic. It's not just Mrs. Incredibles sweet caboose that loves this iconic A-frame Resort hotel, its the rest of the incredible cast too. why??? your guess is as good as ours, for a company that has been around for 100 years you would think that they would have more in the gas tank then to cram the only mid century modern family at their disposal into every room in the once technologically significant tower. You guessed it kiddies, were talking Disneys Contemporary Resort. So get your necks craned as you peep a 90-foot-tall mural by Disney Legend Mary Blair that celebrates the Grand Canyon and the American Southwest for some reason, and Mr. Iger, if you try to get rid of my favorite five legged donkey you will not like the result. Will the quote unquote dazzling pools (really Disney, dazzling, sheesh) and cheap retheming keep this no-tell motel in less than incredible company. Or, will the MK close proximity and the fact that a damn monorail slides into the hotels DMs every 15 minutes be enough to take this big concrete tent with all the bells and whistles up to the summit. There's only one way to find out!
In today's My Disney Class Podcast episode, Ryan and Howie talk about the future of Disney now that Iger is back and making changes in the new year! We all make resolutions this time of year and Disney is no different. Howie and Ryan discuss some of these future predictions for the Disney company in 2023 and talk about why these may happen and what caused the need for the possible change. On this show, Ryan and Howie dive deep into the articles that have been recently written and published about Bob Iger returning to his role as CEO of the Walt Disney Company. They also discuss how Bob Chapek fairly or unfairly gets blamed for the needed return of Bob Iger to right the Disney ship. When you think about the CEO of a company and the Board of Directors that makes all these sweeping decisions that trickle down through the company, it's not hard to draw a parallel connection to how a Superintendent and the Board of Education work. There are two basic approaches to the style of leadership that a CEO or Superintendent can take. The first is a dictatorship, where the CEO can isolate themselves from the board and try to make all the decisions themselves, or the second choice is where they take a more democratic approach and work with the board. I think we all know which way tends to work best in our school districts and it's not really that different for major companies like Disney. Ryan and Howie speculate on how Mr. Chapek's approach and Mr. Iger's approaches to their management style differ and what that has led us to today in the Disney community and world while also influencing what might come from it as well. They will also share their personal hopes and wishes for 2023 to wrap it all up. We hope you enjoyed our evaluation of Chapek and Disney's 2022, as well as our look to the future in 2023! We also would like to take this time to personally thank each and every one of our listeners and supporters. You made 2022 a year to remember and we can't wait to experience the magic of the My Disney Class community in 2023.

I did my worst and best films of 2022, enough of the past, now let's look into the future! The 2023 films I'm looking forward to! This doesn't mean I'm going to see every one of them, because for several of these I only read a synopsis, and if the trailer looks bad, then I'm not going to see it. Or, if the trailer looks stellar and I do plan on seeing it, but everyone across the board who sees it hates it, I'm not going to waste my time or money. Don't look at me that way - I'm going to be like that until I can start monetizing this podcast, okay? Or, it could be that a movie looks great, and people love it, but it's only on Hulu or something, a service I don't have. Then, in that case, it sucks to be me. There's also going to be those movies that jump out and surprise me in the middle of the year that I never would have considered just by reading the premise on paper. All that to say, this is not a comprehensive list by any means. And just so you know, this isn't a Top 10 list, this is just running through the release dates from January to December, so here we go!The first film up is You People. Don't know a thing about it except that it's a buddy comedy (I like buddy comedies - like, is there really a better kind of comedy than that?) which stars Jonah Hill and Eddie Murphy. I don't care much for Eddie Murphy outside of Beverly Hills Cop, but I'm a big fan of Jonah Hill. He always makes me laugh. Knock at the Cabin is an apocalyptic psychological horror film directed by M. Night Shyamalan. What can I say, the man's having a resurgence of sorts with Split, Glass, and I actually enjoyed Old. So I say keep bringing it, my man. I've still got faith in you. I'm still a fan. Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey is coming out next year, and um... yeah, it sounds silly enough that my interest is piqued. Is it going to be any good? Doubt it. Will I watch it? ...Doubt it. But it's on my list if I ever happen to come across it. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Sigh. After last year's Thor: Love and Thunder and all the Marvel shows that no one can possibly keep up with, I'm kind of done with Marvel. Way I see it, Marvel ended with a bang with End Game, and then Spider-Man: No Way Home was like the end-credit scene to all of Marvel. It was the icing on the cake, the last hoorah, the final farewell. To be fair, I haven't seen Wakanda yet, but I'm skeptical because it doesn't have Chadwick Boseman or Michael B. Jordan (though I've been told that Jordan does make an appearance). Anyway, I like Ant-Man, but this will likely be one I wait to come on Disney+. Speaking of Michael B. Jordan, Creed III is my first highly anticipated movie. I love Rocky, all of his movies, and I love the follow-up series, Creed, just as much. I know this film, which is also directed by Michael B. Jordan (following in the lines of Sylvester Stallone), is going to be a knockout. Scream VI is one I'm not dying to see, because these movies don't ever touch the brilliance of the first film, but I'm committed. I'll see it. Adam Driver stars as an astronaut who fights dinosaurs. Sixty-five is a movie that was written by the guys that gave us A Quite Place movies. My daughter is heads-over-heels in love with Kylo Ren, so she's probably going to want to see this one with me, even though she'll only be 9. We'll see what Mom says. But even if she can't, I'll definitely check this one out as long as the reviews are positive. Shazam! Fury of the Gods! Bring - it - on!! I'm a big fan of the first movie - I find it original and touching and hilarious. I'm a little concerned that it won't just be Shazam as the lone super hero, but all his siblings will be fighting by his side, so I'm hoping it's not a Hobbit situation where there's too many characters on screen that we don't know what to do with them. Still, I'm highly optimistic about this movie and it's been on my radar for a very long time. Also on my radar is John Wick: Chapter 4. I mean, what can I say? It's one of those franchises that I think gets better with each installment. The action in Chapter 3 was just *Phew!* mind-blowing. So I can't wait to see what they come up with for this film. Champions is a film directed by Bobby Farley, one of the Farley brothers, and stars Woody Harelson. I don't know anything about it beyond that, but that sounds like a winning team if you ask me. The Super Marios Bros. Movie is one I'm really, really looking forward to, and that's coming from a guy that doesn't really like animated movies all that much. But this one looks like eye-candy as far as just how cartoony the characters look, and I love the trailers and clips they've shown for it as the movie will make the Mario world as we know it, come to live, and actually make sense. Guardians of the Galaxy 3. This is easily one of my most anticipated movies by far. I've watched the trailer 12 times by now, and this is one of two exceptions I've always planned on making for my Marvel viewings post-Endgame. This movie looks like it's really going to break my heart, just like it did when Gamora died. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-verse isn't one I'm as hyped to see as everyone else is, because it's not like I didn't like the first one, but I just feel like it's a tad bit overrated. Don't get me wrong - it's a great, great film, but it just didn't hit all the notes for me as it did for everyone else. Nonetheless, I do plan on watching this one, without a doubt. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts. My kids, especially my son, is very excited to see this. And to be honest, I'm not dreading it in the least. It looks like it's part of the Bumblee universe, and if that's the case, then I'm all in. Elemental is the new Pixar movie about fire and water. Their last installments were just so bad (except for Soul), and I didn't even bother with Lightweight. But with Bob Iger back at Disney's helm, there's reason to think this could be good, depending on how late into production they were when Iger made his triumphal return. Asteroid City is a Wes Anderson film that stars Tom Hanks and Steve Carrell, Margot Robbie, Scarlet Johnson, and everyone else in Hollywood it seems. So... yeah, sign me up, even though I'm a little over Tom Hanks at this point. Indian Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Need I say more? I only hope that the film finds some way to make fun of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. If it does, I guarantee you that's going to be a moment where people applaud in the theater. And hopefully this movie provides a lot of those moments. The bar is high for this one, so we'll see. Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One. Yes, Toy Story is my favorite franchise of all time. But Mission: Impossible is right there (minus MI:II). This movie has been delayed so many times. It was supposed to come out for my birthday this year, which I was so excited for, but good things come to those who wait, and I've been waiting soooooo long for this. This is my number one movie to see in 2023. Then Guardians Vol. 3., then Creed III, then Shazam!. Oppenheimer is a Christopher Nolan film about the creation of the atomic bomb. I mean, who's not at least intrigued by that? I'm definitely not missing that one. The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. I put this on my list, honestly, because my wife really wants to see this one. I love the original Hunger Games books, and I really love Catching Fire the movie. So I'll probably take Sarabeth out to see this. Untitled Ghostbusters: Afterlife Sequel. The kids and I really liked the first one which came out in 2021, so I know we'll probably go see this one. This has been a lot of fun looking forward to what's coming out soon.

Today, Jody and I discuss the recent changes that have taken place at Disney. I also provide my interpretation of what may have led to it and what we, as leaders, can learn. As many have heard, there was a recent change in leadership at Disney as Bob Chapek stepped down and Bog Iger returned to head the company. When Bob Chapek stepped into his role at Disney, he came in hard, and centralized everything. Unfortunately, centralizing communicates distrust. This led to mistakes and an atmosphere of discontent. I've mentioned before how business is a three-legged stool. Take care of your customers, take care of your employees, and take care of Wall Street. If you don't do one of these, you become unbalanced, and it will topple. A three-legged stool can't stand up when it has missing legs. Great people want to be involved and make a difference. When you communicate distrust, you will lose your best people. When you get a good team, trust them. Give them authority. You aren't as good as you think you are. If you want to get somewhere fast, go alone. If you want to get far, go with people. These are the differences between Chapek and Iger. One led with trust and allowed autonomy, and the other did his best to hold the reins on everything. A good leader knows success comes from people. Value input and be a good listener. Value input above ego, and you will go far. If you are considering visiting Disney to see the changes for yourself, make sure to reach out to Magical Vacation Planners. They can help you plan your next vacation. You can reach them at 407-442-2694. Connect with Lee About Lee Cockerell Mainstreet Leader Cockerell Academy

Kyra Sedgwick (voice) WEEKLY MARVEL STUDIO NEWS [56:28] TOP NEWS STORY OF THE WEEK Marvel Is Reportedly Refocusing on Quality Over Quantity for Phases 5 and 6 https://www.thecosmiccircus.com/disneys-restructuring-and-how-it-will-affect-marvel-studios/ https://www.cbr.com/marvel-changing-approach-mcu-phase-5-quality-over-quantity/ Marvel could be looking to focus on quality over quantity for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phases 5 and 6. According to a Marvel Studios source cited by Cosmic Circus, the studio is re-examining its upcoming slate after "internal negative feedback" over Phase 4's distribution and quality. The issues addressed behind the scenes allegedly include creative difficulties with scripts, post-production problems and lackluster visual effects. To prevent Phases 5 and 6 from continuing down a similar path, the report claims Disney could ensure a creative oversight on MCU projects still in the pre-production stage, which in effect could see future projects delayed or outright canceled. Of course, it's worth noting this report has yet to be confirmed through any official Disney or Marvel channels at the time of this writing. Disney's Christine McCarthy Emerges As Top CEO Contender To Succeed Bob Iger; CFO Was King Killer Who Took Down Bob Chapek https://deadline.com/2022/12/disney-bob-iger-christine-mccarthy-ceo-successor-bob-chapek-1235190043/ https://www.cbr.com/bob-iger-christine-mccarthy-successor-contender-disney/ A new report has emerged suggesting that current Disney CFO Christine McCarthy is the frontrunner to replace Bob Iger as CEO after his two-year term comes to a close in 2024. Per Deadline, Disney insiders believe McCarthy is a leading contender to take over for Iger, stating that she "has always been a force to be reckoned with, but you have to put her on a list of top five possibilities after the last few weeks." McCarthy, who has been the chief financial officer at Disney since 2015, was instrumental in the removal of Bob Chapek as Disney CEO, which took place on Nov. 20. If McCarthy were handed the keys to the Magic Kingdom, she would become the company's first female CEO. MCU – MARVEL STUDIOS NEWS The Legacy of Ant-Man | Brazil Comic Con Special Look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRSwXvMcT5c https://www.cbr.com/legacy-of-ant-man-marvel-documentary/ Ahead of the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Marvel has released a special featurette titled "The Legacy of Ant-Man" that explores Scott Lang's career in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This special look at the size-shifting superhero premiered during CCXP and shrinks all of Ant-Man's adventures and misadventures into a two-minute retrospective. It includes some of Paul Rudd's most memorable scenes from Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man and The Wasp and Avengers: Endgame, with a brief look at Quantumania. While the Quantumania teaser trailer had already covered most new reveals from the movie, "The Legacy of Ant-Man" does include an ominous new line from the film's villain, Jonathan Majors' Kang the Conquerer. At the very end of the featurette, Kang can be heard saying, "Your reality, everything you're holding onto -- I know how it ends. You're out of your league, Ant-Man." This dialogue did not appear in the recent trailer, which instead had Kang say, "I can get you home, and give you more time, if you help me. So what's it gonna be, Ant-Man?" This featurette's version is decidedly more threatening than in the teaser trailer, hinting at Kang's status as a time-traveler from the future, which was first alluded to in Season 1 of Loki. James Gunn Confirms GotG Vol. 3 References 2001: A Space Odyssey, Not Among Us https://www.cbr.com/guardians-of-the-galaxy-vol-3-references-2001-not-among-us/ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 writer-director James Gunn has clarified that the trailer's color-coded space suits are a reference to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi epic 2001: A Space Odyssey, not the popular video game Among Us. On Twitter, well-known cartoonist Scott Kurtz asked Gunn if Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's colorful space suits were a nod to Among Us. Gunn simply replied, "No," sharing a photo of the red, yellow and blue space suits from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Kurtz was a good sport about the whole thing, however, tweeting, "I just got schooled by James Gunn. And I love it." And to be fair, judging by other posts on Twitter, Kurtz was far from the only one to think of Among Us when the Guardians donned their colorful gear. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's Synopsis Hints at the Team's End https://www.cbr.com/guardians-of-the-galaxy-vol-3-end-synopsis-mcu/ The official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hints that the events of the movie may lead to the end of the team. Disney+ unveiled the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which teases an emotional ending to James Gunn's beloved Marvel Cinematic Universe trilogy. The synopsis reads, "In Marvel Studios 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3' our beloved band of misfits are looking a bit different these days. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him to defend the universe along with protecting one of their own. A mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them." James Gunn Confirms How Long Thor Spent With the Guardians of the Galaxy https://www.cbr.com/james-gunn-guardians-of-the-galaxy-thor-time/ Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed how long Thor was with the Guardians after the events of Avengers: Endgame. A fan tweeted at Gunn, asking what happened to the Guardians' old ship, the Benatar, and sought clarification on how much time has passed between when we saw the team in Thor: Love and Thunder and the events of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The director claimed that the Benatar is in the garage, and revealed that their new ship, the Bowie, is much larger. He added that the Guardians were only with Thor for a few weeks before embarking on a separate adventure, and claimed a long time has passed since then. DISNEY+ ‘Daredevil: Born Again': Margarita Levieva & Sandrine Holt Join Disney+ Series https://deadline.com/2022/12/daredevil-born-again-margarita-levieva-amp-sandrine-holt-cast-disney-plus-series-1235189804/ Margarita Levieva (The Deuce) and Sandrine Holt (American Gigolo) are set for major roles opposite Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio in Daredevil: Born Again, Marvel's upcoming revival series on Disney+, sources tell Deadline. In addition to Cox and D'Onofrio, Levieva and Holt join previously cast Michael Gandolfini. The 18-episode season of Daredevil: Born Again is slated to premiere in 2024, four years after the original Daredevil series ended its run on Netflix after three seasons. REPORT: Michael Gandolfini Signs on for Multiple MCU Projects https://www.cbr.com/michael-gandolfini-marvel-cinematic-universe-contract/ Actor Michael Gandolfini, known for the Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark, has reportedly signed a multi-project deal with Marvel that will begin with Daredevil: Born Again. News that Gandolfini is joining the upcoming Daredevil show on Disney+ came out earlier this week, but according to Murphy's Multiverse, the actor is closing a deal to appear in multiple Marvel Cinematic Universe projects. Gandolfini's role in Daredevil: Born Again has not been revealed, but this contract suggests that his character will reappear in future MCU shows or movies later down the line. For his first Marvel role, he's working alongside Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock and Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, both of whom are reprising their roles from Netflix's hit Daredevil TV show. I Don't Know What Christmas Is (But Christmastime Is Here) (From "The Guardians of the … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-E1ULv6LcOk https://www.cbr.com/gotg-holiday-special-karaoke-marvel-christmas-carol/ Marvel shared a clip from The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, featuring a sing-a-long of the original song "I Don't Know What Christmas Is (But Christmastime is Here)." The video features the alt-country band Old 97's as a group of alien musicians who attempt to make sense of Peter Quill's confusing Yuletide lore. Writer/director James Gunn discussed writing the song with frontman Rhett Miller, saying, "I had all these lyrics for it, and it kept changing. I walked around my house, singing into my iPhone and trying to figure out how the song was going to work. And finally, I approached Rhett and asked, 'Will you help me write this song? Because I can't do it by myself.' And he said, 'Absolutely.' And so we started sending tons of recordings and lyrics back and forth, and we wrote that song together."

Today, we need to talk about Bob. Two Bobs, actually: Bob Iger, the former and now current CEO of Disney, and Bob Chapek, the man Iger handpicked as his replacement, who flamed out and was fired by the board, and then, on November 20th, was replaced by Bob Iger. Bobs, man. The heart of this whole thing is total Decoder bait. It's a story about how to structure a company like Disney. Then you add in the complexity of the shift to streaming, the future of TV and movies generally, and the gigantic reputation of a character like Bob Iger, who many people think could plausibly run for president. There's just a lot going on here. Whenever I need to talk Disney, media, and Bobs, I call one person: Julia Alexander, director of strategy at Parrot Analytics and a former reporter at The Verge. Julia pays a lot of attention to the streaming giants, she's sourced inside all the companies battling for our attention, and she has a lot to say about the Bobs.

Bob held a Town Hall with Disney employees that was broadcast to the entire company where he answered a lot of questions. Among these were the parks reservation system, which Iger said he had not used and would have to ask Josh D'Amaro about. Overall, the tone was refreshing compared to that of Bob Chapek. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ If you have been to the parks recently, you may have noticed fewer characters around the parks. Most folks might not notice, since character meet and greets aren't as scheduled as entertainment, but character dining guests do notice. On Sunday morning, no characters were at Goofy's Kitchen for the character breakfast. No word on what is causing the shortages, but we will keep you posted if we hear anything. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ The Candlelight Processional is just around the corner, so the setup has begun! This year the annual event is on December 3rd and 4th. Some of the elements are already up in the park, with construction walls setup at the Main Street Train Station. Still no word on who the guest speaker will be. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ Over in ToonTown, a lot of the plants have been installed, but there is still paving yet to be done before the land opens in March of 2023. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ An interesting thing we noticed looking at the refurbishment calendar was that a number of them are open-ended. The one that we are most excited about is Indy, which is going down again starting January 9th. We hope this is the big one that is sorely needed. The Disney Gallery and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln are also going under on January 9th, most likely in preparation for Disney100 to launch later in January. Also of note is the first refurbishment for Web Slingers. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ One of our favorite spots along the Rivers of America has wrapped up work and should be open to guests any minute now! The dock across from Big Thunder Mountain has been behind walls and having the deck replaced for months now. As recently as this weekend, chairs and tables have been setup and the walls have come down, but the area was still blocked off to guests. We are excited to enjoy this area again on our next trip. – https://www.micechat.com/340927-disneyland-update-follow-the-bouncing-bobs/ Weeklyteers who love a good Monte Cristo should head to the Magic Key Terrace soon! A new Monte Cristo corndog is now available for $20 and includes two corndogs, a side of garlic waffle fries, covered in cheese and strawberry Thai chili jam, wine port jelly caviar, and berry compote. Most of the inside of the corndog is cheese, and the thai chili isn't spicy at all. – https://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2022/11/27/review-we-tried-disneys-exclusive-monte-cristo-corn-dog-should-you/ A reservation isn't required for some of the holiday activities around the resort.

The ForceCast is BACK!This week, Ryan and Daniel discuss Bob Chapek's exit as Disney CEO and the return of Bob Iger. What does it mean for Star Wars?Then, Ryan answers an eight-year old question from Podcast 66, and the answer makes him sad.
Disney's (DIS) board of directors … But they replaced one bad choice with another: former CEO Bob Iger. Meanwhile, the media is shocked over Disney's dismal streaming results and stock performance—but no one should be surprised. I explain why analysts refuse to downgrade the stock… what Iger should do as he takes back the “House of Mouse”… why the next few quarters will be terrible for Disney… and how I would play the situation. Best Buy (BBY) is in rally mode following a better-than-expected earnings report.

On today's Breitbart News Daily podcast, we begin with two big topics. First, Disney ousted CEO Bob Chepak and replaced him with former CEO Bob Iger. This is a big victory for the anti-woke. Chepak has been one of the most villainous figures in American media in recent years and we love to see him go. We explain. Then, we get into the latest on President Trump. He is being investigated yet again, he has been invited back to twitter by 'God King' Elon Musk, and he is being attacked by the deplorable Paul Ryan. He's in the news all day every day, just how he likes it. There is a lot to report. We touch on a few other issues too before speaking to Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), who will be the Majority Leader of the next Congress. We get his take on the speakership race, the investigative and legislative agenda the new Congress will put forward, and his take on election denier Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who is likely to be the minority leader.
Join Jim and Greg as they appreciate CBS catching up with other reports in realizing the Hunter Biden laptop is real, but they also note the timing matters because of the upcoming GOP House hearings on the Bidens. They also groan as Disney boots CEO Bob Chapek and brings back former longtime CEO Bob Iger. Jim says there are financial reasons for the move but suspects politics are a major factor as well. Finally, they note former UN ambassador and former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley strongly hinting towards a 2024 presidential run and they wonder just how big this GOP field is going to get.Please visit our great sponsors:Nutrafolhttps://nutrafol.com/menEnter promo code MARTINI to save $15 on your first month's subscription.
