214: EPCOT Center ’82-86 and the Lost Art of Original Songs

Feel the flow, spread your golden wings, and just make believe you’re a tiny little seed, because we’re taking a look back at the original songs that debuted throughout Epcot when the park first opened in 1982. On episode 214, guest Guy Selga joins us for a discussion about songs like “Universe of Energy” and “Listen to the Land,” why these songs are so fondly remembered by fans today, and why the practice of giving attractions original songs seems to have become a lost art. Come along on our musical tour!

Also on this week’s show, we host another wacky edition of Mad Chatter Jeopardy. Plus, we break down some of the new-to-us experiences we tried at Walt Disney World last week, including the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot and Trivia Night at Port Orleans – Riverside.

59: Let’s Talk About Epcot

“Epcot will be Disney World’s Least Visited Park by 2020.”

That was the headline from November 1 over on The Motley Fool. In the article, the author made some interesting points about Epcot’s growth (or lack thereof) in the last several decades. On episode 59, we discuss the article and give our own thoughts about Epcot, where it has been, and what needs to change going forward.

Also on this week’s show, we take a peek into the future of Walt Disney World in the segment “In the Year 2071.” Plus, we dish on the latest developments involving Pandora and Star Wars Land, we answer a listener’s question about the Disney Movie Club and vacationing with a large group, and more. Come join the conversation!
