Kristen reports on an “Incredible” visit to Pixar in Emeryville! But first, we talk about the cost of a day at Disneyland – do the recent price hikes change people’s philosophies about visiting the parks, and if not, why? Team Mousetalgia discusses value vs. time vs. crowds, and we draw interesting conclusions. Next, a listener reviews the live action film “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride,” Jeff announces a haunting new project, and then Kristen visits the Pixar Studios for an amazing day at the annual Cartoon Art Museum benefit. Highlights include a trip to the Pixar employee store, Pixar animator Jeff Pidgeon’s drawing seminar, a Monsters U art display, lunch in the Luxo Cafe – and the highlight of the day, a panel discussing the Incredibles in honor of its tenth anniversary in the Steve Jobs Theatre, with a presentation by director Brad Bird and head of story Mark Andrews, among a stable of other Pixar animators that worked on the Academy Award-winning film.
