    Hey Lou,

    Can’t believe you just recently saw Big Hero 6! Have seen it twice – once at the AMC movie complex in Downtown Disney when we were visiting home (WDW) for 10 days back at Thanksgiving time. BTW, (as I’m sure you already know) this is a great place to get away from the crowds and enjoy some quiet/cool family time during the middle of the day. Went to the movie around 2 in the afternoon and pretty much could count the number of people in the theater on 2 hands. Beautiful facility.

    Anyway, the Disney Animation team really knocked one out of the park with Big Hero 6! I would highly recommend if you’re a Disney movie fan than you MUST SEE this movie – especially if you have 2 teenage boys like I do. They really “connected” with this movie. Not going to say why, cause I don’t want to spoil it for others. Baymax rocks! Oh and so does Groot! Guardians of the Galaxy – another big hit with our family! Awesome music as well! Disney is on a movie roll!

    Can’t wait to see what they do in the parks regarding both movies (barring the legalities with MARVEL). Frozen is great, but would also like to see “a little more” for the guys/boys injected into the “new” park experiences as well. But I guess we may have that coming with Avatar, Star Wars and hopefully Indiana Jones???

    Love, love, love your podcast!

    Have a great day,

    For me, Disney’s biggest plus in 2014 was Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the biggest loss was Off Kilter, and for 2015 I’m most looking forward to learning what’s coming at Hollywood Studios. Thanks for another great show!

  3. Laurel says:

    The expansion of Star Wars! Something so long over due!!!!!!

  4. Maddie says:

    Great podcast!

  5. Molly Engquist says:

    I would say my favorite announcement in 2014 was of course the Star Wars addition! The biggest loss is Maelstrom. I totally understand moving on and Frozen is a force that can’t be controlled. But I am still going to miss the ride.
    Again, great podcast!

    PS For a show idea, I would like to know some tips and tricks for the new wrist band tickets and fast pass +. I haven’t been to the parks since they introduced them. Would love to hear more about them and some tidbits.
    If you have done this already, which episode was it. Thanks!

    Definitely the Seven Dwarf’s Mine Ride was a big plus for our family and we were happy to see Downtown Disney moving forward with the big changes. Look forward to DisenyWorld in 2015!! Great podcast!!

    Hi Lou,

    Just catching up on some of the podcasts from the past year. Bang on with the star wars and pixar land prediction! I think many of those who had been observing the recent changes at DHS in recent months would have come to similar conclusions.

    Entertaining as always.
