- The awkward transitions to our interview with Todd McCartney, The Horizons video restoration. Ecommerce in 1994.  Disney Rumors back in the day. RetroDisneyWorld.com website.  Movie nights! Converting and restoring video and film.  The Mickey Mouse Review! Mom threw away my park maps and tickets. Retro is a sliding scale.  The Wave machine in the Seven Season Lagoon. Backup, Backup, Backup

- Canada is kind of a big deal!

- Take It or Leave It! Special Events @ Resorts. Todd takes it.  Melanie loves the blowing up of the screen and is fascinated by it - otherwise leave it. Cindy says take it!  Christine absolutely takes it - so much to do.  Gary says take it as does John.  Final score ALL to Mel.

- Retro WDW Film Fest - totally need to do it!

- Eat at the Star Wars Cantina Bar... rumors for Disney's Hollywood Studios. What's possible, what would we like to see?

- Forsaken Epcot

- Frozen stuff.  John has actually seen the movie and LIKED IT! 

- Disney fan sites causing Frozen ride in Norway to happen... John has to laugh at that suggestion.  Just not the case. Pulse check, maybe but moving the needle on making something happen, Uh - No.

- Target twice in a day.  Whoa.  John has an unhealthy obsession with Target watches.

- 400 gallons of blue paint turned SeaBase Alpha into an abyss.

- The hidden sites on INTERCOT.  

- There needs to be a new master plan of Epcot, and complete rethinking of the park from top to bottom.  Cohesion is sorely lacking and the park is dying. Things are very disconnected.

Photos taken and sent to your account in the parks without you asking.

Magic Bands should include pedometers and GPS.

Should be a fastpass line for parking.

Why don't magicbands auto add the AP discount? Instead you need a license and a separate card.

Fast Pass for standby lines - our collective heads are going to explode.

Richard Petty Driving Experience and Cars Experience.  Cindy attended on behalf of the site.

Armed Forces Salute renewed again!

Frozen on board Disney Cruise line *(except the Dream)

Once Upon a Time on ABC

New Haunted Mansion Shop on the way.

Pin Collecting? Are you still doing it after all these years?

What did we learn?  Going to do this every two weeks & crabby John has spoken. Don't buy mugs unless you are Mel.  Mel hates this segment.  Ian learned Mel is crabby when we do what did we learn.  John learned it's Arendelle.
