In Mousesteps Weekly #220, we talk about the following topics:

We first head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to check some of the progress of Star Wars Land, which is scheduled to open in 2019. Our next stop is One Man’s Dream, where we first met Moana. She had just a couple of minute wait on the evening we visited. Nearby, 9 minutes of Beauty and the Beast was being previewed in the theater. We stopped to look at Belle’s dress from the film and a couple of other items used in the live action film.

Denise interviewed executive producer Don Hahn about the film. He had originally been a big part of the animated movie, and came on board with the new film to produce.

Next, we took the Royal Tea Tour at Epcot. It costs $15.00 (we paid) and it includes scones and tea, along with an expanded version of the Tea Garden tour. We recommend it!

We head to Busch Gardens for their Food & Wine Festival preview and also feed some kangaroos. We found a joey coming out the pocket of one kangaroo!

We talk about the Disneyland Paris 25th anniversary, which we are looking forward to! Thanks to Megan and Heather for some park pics from this past week, and Max from DLP Welcome for other photos. We’ll have our own video to share very soon.

Recorded 03/13/17 Featuring Commentary from Denise Preskitt and Jeff Lange.
