Episode 16: Animal Kingdom, Mystic Manor, Playhouse Disney, and more

Beyond the Berm is back (and alliterative) with Episode 16!

We start things off with a quick quiz related to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Oops, I just gave away the answer to the first question. Anyway, in honor of the park’s 15th anniversary, we take a few minutes to discuss some different aspects of it.

Next, we tackle Mystic Manor, the newest attraction at Hong Kong Disneyland. It is reminiscent of the Haunted Mansion, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and several other attractions, and yet it is completely different. Here is a video from YouTube so that you will know what we are talking about:

We also discussed the super size projection of Mike Wazowski from Monsters University onto Spaceship Earth, which turned out to be for the Monstrous Summer media announcement, which was taking place at the same time as our podcast recording. I guess we weren’t invited to the big party. Here is a video of the announcement, also at YouTube:

And for more musings, Matt talked about visiting the latest incarnation of the Playhouse Disney show at Disney California Adventure, and we talked about some of the safety issues that are being worked out at the Disneyland Resort, too.

Okay, so maybe alliteration isn’t always our strong point. But hey, it helped to tie everything together. Be sure and join us for Beyond the Berm Episode 16!
