Team Mousetalgia begin this week’s show by diving into the rough waters of Disney’s recent decision to remove Marc Davis’s auction scene from Pirates of the Caribbean, and we explore various possible reasons for the change. Then, Kristen continues her trip report from Disneyland Paris by reviewing the new “Mickey and the Magician” show at Hollywood studios and discussing the Disneyland Paris 25th anniversary festivities, including wow-filled shows and “Disney Stars on Parade” which was designed by Kevin and Jody – while offering a few more Disneyland Paris touring tips. Finally, Jeff looks back to 1964 and discovers Disneyland’s ties to “It’s a Small World” before it even opened at the New York World’s Fair. Plus – we consider possible features for future D23 Expos – and more. SPECIAL NOTE: We have CANCELLED our meet-up that was scheduled to be held Friday July 14 at the Marriott Hotel. Watch our social media this week for notifications of where we have a meet-up during the Expo weekend.
