31: MyMagic+ (Reinventing the Disney Vacation)

Does MyMagic+ work? Are MagicBands a success? Is this Next Generation experiment worth the cost?

These were some of the questions posed in a recent online article published by Fast Company magazine. On this week’s episode we break down the article and share our thoughts on Disney’s attempts to reinvent itself and revolutionize the vacation experience.

In another round of “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” we shine the spotlight on the western half of World Showcase, from Mexico to Italy, critiquing everything from the architecture to the merchandise. Plus, we respond to another listener email, this time answering questions about a Walt Disney World vacation for preteens.
