The History of New Orleans Square

Disneyland has a lot to love, but we love no other land the way we love New Orleans Square. Despite having a small amount of attractions, this section of the park continues to be amazing.  Taren does some research into the fascinating …

But first …

Another odd intro by Jason.  One day he’ll figure out this whole “show intro” thing, but we won’t hold our breath.  This show is pretty long one, despite not having Bev in studio with us.  Which also means we have no video for this show again, since Bev is our super-smart video person.

For feedback,we heard from Angie, who is looking for some advice on what to do with her 13 year old niece, who hasn’t been to Disneyland in about 11 years.  Despite nobody on the show having children 13 years old, we do our best to give Angie the best things to do.  (Hint: do it all!)

After feedback, we jump on a call with Dan over at MouseBrew,  because we wanted to get his experiences at the latest 24-hour day at Disneyland, since none of us were brave enough to wade through the expected crowds.

Taren gets into the nitty gritty of the history of New Orleans Square, which is pretty fascinating, despite it’s small size and large population of shops.  She runs through which attractions were up and running when New Orleans Square was first open, and what has changed since that day.  Jason jumps in for a bit to talk about the return of the famous Hat Box Ghost – including revealing his real name!

We had a pretty big Disney News segment for this show.  Even though we had run about an hour with just normal show content, there was some great news that we could just not leave alone.

Then it’s time for the Fact of the Show and for us to leave and go home!

See you in the parks!

 

Notice the white flower on the tree in front of The Haunted Mansion?  Normally these get trimmed at night, so the tree will look more "spooky"!
