On this episode, Eli asks whether or not Expedition Everest should be rethemed to an IP attraction? This conversation comes on the heels of the Disney-fan firestorm that was created when Bob Iger’s Barron’s article was released. To summarize the part of the article that caused the Disney-fan discomfort, it is stated that interest from a potential audience is higher with an IP-based attraction rather than a nondescript coaster based on India somewhere. The article has since been edited to remove any indication of that statement.
In addition, we go into the mailbag and see what our listeners want to say today.
