WDW Radio # 636 - The Voice of the PeopleMover, Mike Brassell

I sit down with Mike Brassell, the voice of the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and Living with the Land attractions in Walt Disney World to discuss the process (and pressure) of being the voice of beloved attractions in the parks. We also discuss his career at Walt Disney Feature Animation, working with Roy Disney, his cameo appearance in the Disney animated short film “John Henry,” and working at The Magic of Animation building at Disney-MGM Studios. Mike also talks about composing the musical score for Space Mountain in Tomorrowland, alongside Michael Giacchino's score for Disneyland's version.

WDW Radio # 632 - Unrealized Walt Disney World Attractions of the Disney Decade: Part 1

When Michael Eisner and Frank Wells ushered in The Disney Decade in 1990, they did so with the promise of unmatched expansion in the Disney parks and resorts. And while many of the announcements came to be, there were many that never made it off the drawing board, or in some cases, the scale models. This week, we'll look at the many attractions, shows, resorts, and unique offerings that were never realized in the parks... including some incredible concepts that you probably never heard of before.

WDW Radio # 631 - Interview with Imagineer Kevin Lively and Jungle Cruise Updates

I want to welcome you aboard the World Famous Jungle Cruise with our very special (former) Skipper, Kevin Lively. Kevin shares his personal journey from fan to Cast Member, and stories from the rivers in Disneyland and in Tokyo. We'll also talk about his time at Walt Disney Imagineering, as show writer and story editor, and maintaining the legacy of classic attractions that include Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion. We also discuss the changes in the Jungle Cruise, including a reveal of a new show scene, the S.E.A. (Society of Explorers and Adventurers) and much more. It is an outstanding discussion... until Kevin left me out standing on the dock. Alone. And if you don't believe me, you're probably in... (OK, moving on...)
