Monday Morning Update: Thanks for making the Unofficial Guide Disney Dish the #1 travel podcast on iTunes!
Another episode of the Unofficial Guide Disney Dish podcast is available. On this show we walk the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street USA with urban designer and author Sam Gennawey. Sam’s new book is Walt and the Promise of Progress City, which describes Walt Disney’s interest in urban planning, design and architecture. Sam’s knowledge of architecture and design is evident as we walk through Main Street. Learn why the entrance tunnels are on the left and right side of the train station, not in the middle. Hear why the pavement is red. Stand in the central hub and know where to look for ‘wienies’ and movement in every direction. And find out how Disney’s architects use fences and walkways to mark the borders of each land.
Side note: Jim and I are working our schedules out for more episodes, too, including Disneyland and the Disney Cruise Line. Look for an announcement (and possibly a couple of shows) in the next few weeks. In the meantime, enjoy these shows with Sam.
