After the film, the Cap coverage will continue with a look at the latest playset released for the Disney Infinity video game, Marvel Battlegrounds. Tracey and Scott will let you know if it’s a prizefighter or just a big Palooka. All that, plus a call over to the Main Street Cinema and some listener feedback.
Many thanks to Ron Collins of 520 Cherry Tree Lane here in town for this picture. Here is Ron’s description: This is the Bronson Caves. It is also know as the Batcave. This is where the Batmobile drove out of on the T.V. show. Imagine lots more trees and bushes and a guard rail right in front of the cave.
Other Places to Find Disney, Indiana
It’s time for the annual – well, maybe the first (and likely last) – Disney, Indiana stockholder meeting. After the business section of the meeting is done (including voting down a shareholder motion), our hosts Tracey and Scott move on to the fun part of the episode. They review their trip to Chicago to attend the Disney Stockholder meeting and a D23 sneak preview of Disney’s newest film Zootopia. They’ll also look at the production of that film and share their thoughts after watching. Then they spend a little time with the stars of Zootopia within Disney Infinity as they review the new Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde figures. They’ll wrap up the show by checking on the Mortis at the Main Street Cinema, cover a bit of feedback and look ahead to the next episode.
In today’s episode, our hosts, Tracey and Scott return to Flynn’s Arcade to discuss the latest Lego video game for home consoles – Lego Marvel’s Avengers.

Our hosts return with a discussion of the new documentary “Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow: The Futurism of Walt Disney”, currently available on YouTube. They wrap up the episode with an announcement of their appearance on another podcast, as well as an upcoming book release by a recent guest.
Welcome to Disney, Indiana!
Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow: The Futurism of Walt Disney documentary:
Featuring interviews with various Disney Legends and Historians, Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow looks at the various technologies Walt Disney used and developed over the course of his life. From creating the first sync sound animation in 1928 to his unrealized dream of E.P.C.O.T., an experimental city that passed on with him in 1966, this film shows Walt Disney as the futurist he truly was.
In today’s episode, Scott channels his inner Stark to start the show. Our hosts then share some Streetmosphere park audio from their 2014 trip to Walt Disney World. Tracey and Scott then kick off their coverage of Marvel’s latest theatrical release Avengers: Age of Ultron with a discussion of the film’s production. After a quick call to the Main Street Cinema, Scott and Tracey continue their coverage of the film with a look at its marketing, the critical and popular response and share their thoughts on the film. Our hosts then meet up with The Ghost Host for a ridethru of the Haunted Mansion, also from their 2014 Walt Disney World trip. They wrap things up with some listener feedback and a sneak peek of the next episode.
