3, 2, 1 . . . Happy New Year! Well, every night was New Year’s Eve on Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World, the subject of March’s Forgotten Favorite. Our hosts will dive into the history of this former shopping, dining and entertainment district (both actual and invented). After their visit with Mr. Funmeister and Scott getting his leisure suit on, it’s time for some music with the stars as our hosts revisit the Make Mine Music theme. Tracey and Scott continue to work their way through the theme parks with a countdown of their favorite music from Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. All this, plus a call over to the Main Street Cinema to check in on the Mortis and a look ahead to the next episode.
Welcome to Disney, Indiana!
