Episode 12 - The Big Reveal

March 29th, 2011

The Cast: John Yaglenski, Melanie Bounds, Carol Robert & Gary O'Brien.

- Gary Returns - Carol & Gary actually are on the same show at the same time.  No Ian.

- The Haunted Mansion queue rehash.  Gary questions why the queue really needed adding to since there was never a wait, but is reserving judgement.  Carol is a little worried it looked a bit "cheap".  John's wondering how it will be lit at night.

- John is going to have to slice and dice this episode.

- Why don't they offer a photo at the end of the Haunted Mansion ride.  Send it on to Marketing! Combine photos and learn the "Photoshops".  INTERCOT Consulting Services are born!

- New Ticketing @ Epcot being tested.  RFID Scanners suggests Gary. 

- 2 Brilliant Ideas in one podcast - EasyPass for ThemeParks.

- Wait - another one.  Annual Passholder dedicated line.  Bypass those confused by the ticketing process.

- New Permanent Home for Mickey Mouse - Town Square Theater.  Magician Mickey will be making an appearance. Hinted to open April 1.

- Patriotic Mickey, Frotierland Mickey, The Billies.  Colonial characters including Patriotic Mickey should definately move to the American Adventure.

- Gary begs for a trip to Hawaii for all the great ideas.

- Free wifi testing @ the Contemporary Resort.  A "flight" of internet at the Wave of American Flavors.

- The Tikki Room.  Reopening pushed further back to July 1 - fueling rumours that the old show may return.

- Mel hates the Country Bears. Yet another attraction - the Tiki Bears.

- Apparently no one has seen the Tikki Room Pre-show.  Google it or hit YouTube, John swears it exists.

- Gary & Refurbs - Toontown update.  Mel struggles to describe a peak as we play charades.  Then Gary needs to explain the weenie. 

- Grand Floridian Expansion.  Construction between the Polyneisan Luau thru to where the Grand Floridian Pool begins.  Bridal Suites?  DVC?  Reception Halls - we're full of ideas tonite!

- INTERCOT's Best Of - Photo Places. Gary takes a pic at the wishing well & the giant troll in Norway (aka Uncle Jimmy).  Carol takes pictures of the icons.  Mel does the character totem pole at the Wilderness Lodge.  John talks about video in front of the Adventureland sign & Epcot's Spaceship Earth.

- John's headed to the Hard Rock Hotel and then new Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort.

- Mel went back to Universal & liked it much better this time.  She thinks the Mummy is the coolest ride ever!  Don't wear flip flops on the Forbidden Journey.  Gary has another idea - gift shop at the end of the ride with all the stuff people loose on the ride.  Crowd control @ Wizarding World.  Jimmy Neutron going away.

- What's an LMNOP?
