The Haunted Mansion (Walt Disney's Masterpiece)

The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park just celebrated its 50th anniversary, so now more than ever seems the perfect time to discuss this classic attraction. Of all the attractions at Disney Parks around the world, there are few that can beat The Haunted Mansion's popularity. Although there have been a few incremental updates to the original versions at Disneyland Park in California and Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, the rides remain virtually the same as they were when they first opened, including the special effects. In today's episode, we'll dive into the history and details of The Haunted Mansion, and we'll ride through the attraction together via binaural audio. What do you love most about The Haunted Mansion? Which version of this attraction is your favorite?

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

"Execute order 66!" For Emperor Palpatine that might mean one thing, but for Imagineer Podcast it means it's time to discuss Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. This innovative attraction opened in Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World on December 5, 2019 and at Disneyland California on January 17, 2020. This attraction might very well be the best theme park attraction ever created, with a captivating storyline told seamlessly from beginning to end, a thrilling ride design, multiple preshows and ride experiences, impeccable attention to detail, stunning special effects, and so much more. Scott Trowbridge and his team of Walt Disney Imagineers have created a genius attraction in which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and I believe it's a masterpiece that Walt would be proud to see come to life. In this episode, we'll dive into Rise of the Resistance in detail, covering its storyline, special effects, ride design and sequences, music, Cast Member interactions, and a binaural recording of the full attraction from its opening week at Walt Disney World.

Disney's Extinct Attractions (What We Miss Most)

Whether your first trip to Walt Disney World was 1971 or 2001, there are attractions that have come and gone throughout the course of the park's history. As Walt Disney once said, "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." While the changes made are often for the best (and the new attractions are ones that we grow to love), there is always a part of us that misses our old favorites. In today's episode, we explore that very topic to identify the extinct attractions at Disney that we miss or missed. Special thanks to John and Ann Marie for lending their voices and opinions to this show! You can learn more about their podcast (Central Florida Sights and Sounds) by visiting http://www.cfsas.com.

Best Queues at Walt Disney World

There's an easy way to spot a true Disney fan: they're the ones who rave about waiting in line for an attraction! Why? Waiting in the queue for a Disney attraction is not like waiting in line at your local amusement park. The Imagineers put so much detail into the queue that it really becomes an experience. It's not an inconvenience; it's a part of the journey and the story. In this episode, we'll dive into our favorite queue experiences at Walt Disney World and help to convince you that waiting in standby at Disney (up to a certain threshold of course) is worth taking the time to look around and explore.

The Land Pavilion has been a staple at Epcot since it opened on the park's official dedication, October 1, 1982.
