This week, Mousetalgia takes you behind the scenes at MouseCon, the first annual Northern California Disney fan convention. We share some exclusive conversations with the special guests – Tommy Kirk on Walt Disney, Floyd Norman on WED and the origins of the Haunted Mansion, and C. Andrew Nelson on putting on the mask of Sith Lord Vader – plus we collect some thoughts from fans at the convention. Then, Dave and Becky report on Disneyland Paris, and offer their first-hand account of Disney’s response to the recent terror crisis, and how the cast members and guests responded to the confusing, chaotic events. We also present part one of Mousetalgia’s review of the Disneyland Paris resort by discussing the various hotels and lodging options available, and next week we’ll follow up with a report on the attractions, dining, and holiday celebrations at the resort. Plus – a surprising Paris/Orlando/Anaheim price comparison, and a listener report from a preview screening of The Good Dinosaur on the Pixar campus.
