Listen to the Episode:
Welcome to Episode 2 of the Retro Disney World Podcast. We have had lots of great feedback thus far, we hope you continue to enjoy our retro presentations!
The regular crew is all here, Todd, Brian, How & JT are all present and accounted for. How kicks off the podcast with the correct story behind the crying alligator gag in the Jungle Cruise from the last show.
The team starts by mentioning their favorite part of the Contemporary Resort, from there we dive into the overall design, the association with US Steel and how the rooms were constructed. JT gets to say “Like a chest of drawers” a few times while Brian imagines the construction view from Roy’s Cabin.
Todd struggles with the escalator size and continually gets lost in the Grand Canyon Concourse.
We move on to the North & South wings and then ask “What would you pay to stay in a retro Contemporary Room?”
Todd once again mixes up Shari Lewis and Phyllis Diller as we move up to the Top of the World. The commercial discussed during the show can be viewed here: US Steel Contemporary Resort Hotel Construction Commercial
We welcome Chad from wdwmap.com to the show to discuss his amazing reproduction Paul Hartley map of WDW that hung in the rooms at the Contemporary and Polynesian Resorts.
