    A STAR WARS CHANGE IN POLICY FOR THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY

    A STAR WARS CHANGE IN POLICY FOR THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY

    Disney and Star Wars have a long history together. It all started with the E-Ticket attraction Star Tours at Disneyland. Back then, who knew that just a few decades later The Walt Disney Company would no longer need to license these characters from George Lucas for use in their parks, as they would later own the entirety of Lucasfilm Ltd. But there was a shift in Disney’s relationship with the Star Wars characters once they purchased them. What used to be a very playful franchise they didn’t take all that seriously has now become serious business with extremely strict rules in regard to timeline, continuity, and character integrity. But has The Walt Disney Company gone too far? Join me as I chat with Star Wars aficionado and mega-fan Mike Celestino about this change in policy from a long time ago, when Disney simply licensed the characters, to now as they currently own them.

    AN HONEST TALK ABOUT STAR WARS: GALACTIC STARCRUISER WITH A PAYING GUEST

    AN HONEST TALK ABOUT STAR WARS: GALACTIC STARCRUISER WITH A PAYING GUEST

    Disney fans rejoice! One of the most ambitious projects in the themed entertainment and immersive industry recently opened. Of course, I'm talking about the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser at Walt Disney World. During this two night excursion, guests go on missions, enjoy live entertainment, become part of the story, eat lots of themed food and much more. But this unique experience comes with a hefty price tag. Listen as I chat with a paying customer about his experience while aboard The Halcyon weighing the pros and the cons, and discussing whether or not he considered it worth the cost.

The Podcast All Disney Fans Need to Listen to

I started listening to DCTC in 2017, and I wish I had started sooner. Jeff’s content, talking points, guests, and style all lend themselves to an unbelievable podcast experience. My favorite aspect to the show is Jeff calls it like he sees it; which can be very rare amongst similar podcasts. He doesn’t see things with rose-colored glasses, he sees things for how they are, and gives his opinions. The show covers content from the Parks themselves, to shows, live-performance, characters, and so much more. His guests are great as well, from Disney Legends, Imagineers, or other podcast hosts and fans. I cannot recommend DCTC enough!
