    120: How Will Disney Parks Recover From COVID-19?

    Disney CEO Bob Chapek led a grim call with investors this week about the state of the company's theme parks, which have endured unprecedented losses because of the coronavirus pandemic. We talk about the latest financial figures and what they mean for Disney - and how their theme park rivals could take advantage of their cost-cutting. And what might the state of things be later this year and into 2022?

    119: RIP Barney, Super Nintendo World Opens, And The Truth Behind Universal Studios UK!

    119: RIP Barney, Super Nintendo World Opens, And The Truth Behind Universal Studios UK!

    It's a busy week of news this week, which means it's just as well we overcame some early technical gremlins for an hour-long chat about the opening of Super Nintendo World in Japan, the return of Volcano Bay in Florida, the heartbreaking end of A Day In The Park With Barney, and reveal the truth behind recent speculation about The London Resort potentially ending up as a Universal Studios park.

    118: Probably Skip This One - The Audio's Busted

    118: Probably Skip This One - The Audio's Busted

    Hey, everyone! Super sorry for this, but can't in good conscience recommend that you listen to this week's show because the audio quality is an absolute mess. Tom made a daft error during his recording, which made his track pretty unsalvageable, and working this weekend meant he had even less time than he would have liked to try and clean it up some more. So yeah, really sorry but it's a tough listen.

    If you do stick with it for some reason, you can look forward to chat about The London Resort, Jungle Cruise, VelociCoaster, and more.

    117: Disneyland's Spider-Man Update, Biden Confirmed For Hall Of Presidents, And More!

    117: Disneyland's Spider-Man Update, Biden Confirmed For Hall Of Presidents, And More!

    It's a pretty much Disney-exclusive week of news on this week's show, including an update on Web-Slingers: A Spider-Man Adventure at Disneyland and confirmation that Joe Biden will be installed at Magic Kingdom's Hall Of Presidents. Apologies for the slightly robotic tinge to Josh's voice this week - Tom's attempts to remove some irritating echo created another problem entirely.
