Join your hosts, Tom Corless and Luke Manning, and a cast including Justin Heyman, Anthony Yacullo, Scott Smith, Kenny Siegel, Shawn Hutchinson, and Kyle Duffield for a variety show celebrating the 45th anniversary of the 1964 New York World’s Fair. This week’s show is a special episode honoring Walt Disney’s contributions to the fair, including Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln, the Ford Magic Skyway, the General Electric Carousel of Progress, and “it’s a small world”.

To kick off the episode, we have Disneyland News Today’s signature segment, “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” . This week, we take a look at at one of the greatest Disney attractions of all time that debuted at the World’s Fair, “it’s a small world”. Let’s see if we can get through this segment without getting the song stuck in our heads.

After that, we’ll have another edition of “What were they thinking?”, where we will try to examine why certain decisions are or were made by Disney management. This time around, we will try to figure out why a number of decisions were made regarding Disney’s involvement in the 1964 World’s Fair and the ultimate fate of the attractions created for the historic event.

To end this special episode, we’ll have the debut of our newest segment, “World’s Finest”. In this round-table discussion, we will pick our favorite Disney-made ride vehicle, characters, music and attraction from the fair.
