New Disney Dish Podcast w/ Jim Hill: Limited Time Magic and Disney’s Next Gen Project
The funny thing about this episode is that we didn’t plan it. I’d called Jim to record the Tokyo Disneyland show and we were just catching up on what we saw in WDW on our latest trips. Luckily, I possess a Nixonian habit of recording everything Jim and I discuss. You know, for posterity (read: “Grand Jury indictment.” As David Lee Roth once said, “You know you’ve made it when you can spell ‘subpoena’ without a dictionary.” ).
We ended up talking for almost an hour about Limited Time Magic and Disney’s Next Gen project. Hope you enjoy the show.

REALLY love the podcasts. Keep them coming please!
Love these podcasts! This one doesn’t seem to show up on my ipad podcast app however.. Anyone else have that problem?
I’m just hazarding a guess here – but when you were talking about the “touchpoint” part of the My Magic + questionnaire: I imagined all Disney was asking was “which wrist will your band be on?”
I love these podcasts. This episode was fun because Len got to talk a little.
I’ve said this in a few places, but I think Phineas and Ferb should be the hosts of Epcot. They shouldn’t be a part of every ride at all, but around the park to give that it’s-cool-to-be-smart feel and a sense of enthusiasm for the future. But, their centerpiece would be a completely new and dynamic Energy Pavilion with the world’s coolest roller coaster (it was an episode of the show for those who don’t know). I’ll grant you that it isn’t in the spirit of the more sedate discussion of energy from the 80s, but let’s face it, there are plenty of places to feel sedate there. I’d also say that they should move Imagination to where Innoventions is because, to me, imagination is at the center of everything in the future and everything branches out from there. This would also be a great and more natural place to start Illuminations and kick it over to the showcase for the big show. Figment could remain a big draw and even grow.
But I think this summarizes why I think they’d be great at Epcot: Imagine that you’ve had a great day at Epcot, you’re on your way out and the kids are babbling on about the different things they’ve done. You’re heading for the monorail when you look up and see the exit sign and it’s P&F among a crowd, but with the quote from Phin, “Ferb, I know what we’re gonna do tomorrow!” It’s the idea that Epcot is built on, it would be fantastic.
