This week on Tom Morrow’s Mouse we dedicate the whole hour to Shanghai Disneyland. We have special guest Josh from Theme Park University. Josh was one of the first westerners to visit Shanghai Disneyland. This is his first podcast interview after returning. He gives us the inside scoop on food, transportation, the castle, Pirate of the Caribbean, and the hidden gem of the park, Camp Discovery Trail. Josh gives us some of the bad but a lot of the good about the park. He says that this is his favorite of the “Magic Kingdoms”. He also gives us hints at what might be in store for the future of Shanghai Disneyland.

Soarin’ Around the World June 17th - “Put it [the orange scent] in a bottle. Make it a cologne.” – Nick.

The crew then debate if the destinations will be randomized and what the update means to the music in the queue.

Rider Switch at WDW
“I was actually really surprised last time we were there how easy it was to get it at Dwarfs Mine Train considering how busy that ride is” – Adrianne

Pretzels.

WHAT YEAR DID THESE DISNEY MOVIES COME OUT? – Adrianne
