This month we took a call for all of your questions; things you want to know, different things you remember and even some memories that we have forgotten about.
- We start off in Epcot discussing Figment and the Imagination Pavilion. The discussion also moves onto Spaceship Earth regarding continents projected with lasers and the Laserphonic Fantasy show on World Showcase Lagoon!
- RJ McBean is discussed with binaural audio and also our MGM Studios Opening Day Episode.
- A listener asks about a mention in the book Realityland about the Bay Hill Cottages and where Roy stayed, not Roy’s Cabin, during the construction of WDW. How & Brian have some seriously detailed information on this.
