In this news round-up from one of the most eventful fall seasons Orlando has seen in years we talk about those awful new attendance numbers coming out of SeaWorld, we review Mango’s new menu and talk Skyplex, we cover all the new hotels and attractions heading to Disney, and try to read the tea leaves on what the future holds for Universal Orlando.
First up today is a Punch List with Jay and Lissa plus we’re joined by Jake who is taking the Caption E.O. news pretty hard. After a touchy exchange between Ken and Lissa regarding Disney Jay brings up some UOR news.
Then for the Main Event today we have Part 2 of the interview with Simon and Susan of Veness Travel Media (Part 1 was posted March 16). They give their unique insights into the local British tourism trends and weigh in on all the news including Star Trek attractions, Star Wars and where SeaWorld goes from here.
Tomorrowland in Future World. Is Caption EO leaving for good? Does this point to future developments (Carousel of Progress rumor)? Innoventions Westis closing April 29 and in Disneyland its closing for 2 months, what does this mean?
In today’s SideChat (Episode SC4) the OTR crew is joined by Matt and Justin from Florida Thrill Parks. Post-Kong UOR is discussed with Florida Thrill Park’s announcing a project number. The FTP guys then discuss their thoughts on Jurassic Park/World, Seuss Landing, Kids Zone and the future of Dragon Challenge.
With any conversation that features numerous people sometimes parts of the conversation don’t make the final cut for the show. Instead of forever losing those (hopefully) interesting tangents we decided to post smaller, bite size podcasts to keep you going between our larger episodes. Here is our first one. We wanted to call it random tangents but we also wanted to have at least a few of you listen to it so instead we went with the name SideChat. Hope you enjoy.
