Beyond the Pandemic: Walt Disney World Attractions Still Closed & More

Beyond the Pandemic: Walt Disney World Attractions Still Closed & More

You would think that with the pandemic pretty much behind us that there everything is back to normal here at Walt Disney World. Well…not quite. We spend a fairly busy time between Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios discussing all of the attractions, entertainment stores, and restaurants and in all four parks and beyond. You may be fairly surprised buy what’s happening and what has yet to come back. On the road we take a detour on the blue line of the TTA Peoplemover where a new spiel is given as you journey through Tomorrowland. It’s a busy podcast with lots to talk about. Come join!

Below are photos of the podcast. But the podcast goes into details you won’t want to miss. The podcast is available on PodbeaniTunesSpotify,  and ListenNotes. Please subscribe to the podcast and to this website so you can be notified of upcoming posts and podcasts!

The weirdness of the sugar falling out of the sack makes me think I haven’t seen this guy before. Is he new since the confectionary was redone? Photo by J. Jeff Kober.
Just a small splash on the right side. A bigger splash is made before the boat arrives. The tent is also redone. Get the title? Photo by J. Jeff Kober.
Love this guy. Chesire cat didn’t say anything. Photo by J. Jeff Kober.
