Join me, Tom Corless, and a cast including Justin Heyman, Jason Diffendal, Brandon Struve, and Banks Lee for a variety show dedicated to the Walt Disney World Resort and its many fans. Plenty of Walt Disney World information and fun awaits you on this edition of the WDW News Today Podcast!!!

On this week’s show, we’re celebrating the anniversaries of two attractions from Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom, the ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter and the WEDway Peoplemover. To kick off this celebration, we’ll be dissecting Alien Encounter in honor of its 15th anniversary with one of our signature segments: “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”. Following that, we have a rather “moving” installment of our Walt Disney World history segment, Back to the Future. In this week’s trip through time, we’ll be looking at the history of a revolutionary ride system that stunned the world at the 1964 World’s Fair, defined a generation at Disneyland, and eventually advanced theme parks into a new era at Walt Disney World: the WEDway Peoplemover. We’ll travel back to the beginning and see where this attraction has its roots planted, and travel all the way to today where it’s know at the Tomorrowland Transit Authority, or more affectionately as the TTA.
