Over the past few years, Disney’s trend at the theme parks is to take existing properties like Star Wars or Avatar and create attractions and lands out of them. Thanks to the popularity of Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter land, it doesn’t seem like this trend is slowing down. Walt did think of properties when building his original theme park but he also wanted to create new original ideas for his park. So when did Disney decide to slow it’s building of original concepts.

Does media have a hand in this? Creating buzz for something like Star Wars Land is much simpler than opening something nobody has ever heard of. Does Disney choose to market it’s Intellectual attractions over it’s original attractions? What will the future look like? Will something like Bugs Land or Cars Land stand the test of time like Adventureland or Frontierland have?

This week, Dave and Mike from Radio Harambe join Josh to answer one specific question we have, “How does Animal Kingdom keep animals as it’s main focus while it changes and grows?” To answer the question we have to look at what is coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom park and how Disney is marketing the park. Things like conservation, fear of bad publicity, what the park guest wants, and finding ways to create new animal experiences all come up in order to answer our question.

If you want to learn more about Disney’s Animal Kingdom, check out Dave and Mike’s site JamboEveryone.com or their podcast about the park, Radio Harambe.

Modern Mouse Radio #82: Best Reimagined Disney Attractions

This week, Keith and Josh team up to talk their top 10 best reimagined Disney attractions as well as parades, shows, lands, and theme parks as a whole.

Over the last decade or so, Disney Imagineers have taken classic attractions at the various theme parks and reworked them. Nobody likes to see their favorite ride go, so instead these great thinkers at the Disney parks are revamping them so that no park becomes stale. There have been some bad refurbishments and good ones, but these are the 10 best “reworked” Disney attractions.

Also on a sad note, we announce that one of our long lasting hosts has to step down and away from the podcast.
