- We've been doing this for 2 years now - whoda thunk it. The lost episode comes up yet again!

- Be Our Guest Discussion.  Alcohol in the Magic Kingdom for the first time ever (other than after hours private events). Disney changes policy. Does it open the door to alcohol at more locations or not?

- INTERCOT’s Best Of - something you want to do at Disney that you need special permission for.  DisneyKidSince1970 suggested the topic.  Carol volunteers to go first and she wants to go into Walt’s Apartment alone. Michael wants to run a churro cart but only for a limited time and challenges the validity of the Cherry Churro. Gary wants to sit alone on Main Street USA and watch the sunrise while having a cup of coffee (Ian ruined it). Melanie wants access behind all the construction walls.  John wants to stand on top of Spaceship Earth and appear in a promo video.

- Sally and Jack at Downtown Disney but only for about 3 days.

- Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party – video on http://youtube.com/intercot.
