In this week’s Emporium of topics, Imagineer Brian Crosby returns to the show to talk about various topics, including Marvel’s Disney Kingdoms; “Ghostly Materials,” the Haunted Mansion exhibit at Disneyland’s Disneyana store; and the real meaning of the brass bat stanchions that direct the Mansion’s queue. We also start talking Expo – how to start preparing for the fourth D23 convention, coming in summer 2015. Kristen reviews two new Blu-ray releases (something old and something new), and Jeff reviews the recent D23 Fanniversary held at the Walt Disney Family Museum. Is this fan event worth the hype – and the ticket price? The team also mulls over the current state of Disney’s official fan club, and considers the future of D23. We also host a sweepstakes giveaway of a limited edition 85th anniversary Mickey Mouse watch! Plus, baking banana bread from the Monorail Cafe; the Disneyland Almanac; Disney Afternoons; making a new World’s Fair – and more!
