Episode 55: Changes Ahead for the Disney Parks?

Welcome back to another episode of Beyond the Berm! It didn’t even take us 3 months to get out another one as it did the last time!

Maybe you have heard rumblings about changes coming to the Disney Parks, both at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. Disneyland has committed to expanding the resort in some form in exchange for a tax break from the city of Anaheim. And Walt Disney World keeps closing things at Disney’s Hollywood Studios without announcing something new on the horizon. What does all of this mean? Listen to us as we comment on some of the speculations, and as we do some speculating ourselves.

In keeping with the Disney Parks theme, Matt tells about his recent visit to Disneyland to see some of the new additions and extravaganzas that were added for the 60th anniversary celebration. Listen in as he talks about parades, fireworks, and crowds!

Also, following up on our conversation about summer movies in Episode 54, we give our reviews of the latest Disney/Marvel movie, Ant-Man. Did it live up to our expectations?

All this and more goodness in Episode 55 of Beyond the Berm!

Episode 54: Differently Different In the Same Kind of Way

Just when you had given up on us completely, Beyond the Berm returns with Episode 54!

Why were we gone for so long? We talk about that to start off the podcast. We had some scheduling issues and things like that at times, but it was mainly Steve’s fault as he was off on the Burnsland World Tour. He tells some about his visit to Bangkok, Thailand, as well as his family’s recent Disney cruise. After the cruise, they also spent a week in Florida, seeing such Disney things as Typhoon Lagoon and the Magic Kingdom. Hear all about his first experiences with MyMagic+, and lots more about his travels.

After that, we give our opinions about all of the Disney summer movies that have been released so far starting with Cinderella (which was actually a spring movie), and also including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tomorrowland, and Inside Out. Which ones did we like? And which ones didn’t quite work for us? Listen in to find out. And we also talk about the upcoming Marvel movie Ant Man, too.
