Episode 23 of the Unofficial Guide’s Disney Dish podcast with Jim Hill is available via iTunes and direct MP3 download! Here’s the RSS feed to subscribe to future episodes.

This show continues with the history of Disney’s California Adventure as it existed from 2001 to 2005. Jim jumps in the Wayback Machine to walk through DCA as it existed back then, and goes through extinct attraction after extinct attraction, telling the story of how Disney tried to fix the park after its lackluster opening.

As with the other shows, we recorded live in DCA. One thing that surprised me in DCA was how loud the live performances are – you can really hear the volume from those shows as we walk through the park. But hopefully it adds a little ambiance to the talk.

Please leave us feedback on iTunes and tell us what other episodes you’d like us to record. Thanks for listening!

Episode 22 of the Unofficial Guide’s Disney Dish podcast with Jim Hill is available via iTunes and direct MP3 download! Here’s the RSS feed to subscribe to future episodes.

Jim and I were in California a couple of weeks ago, recording an all-new set of shows on Disneyland and DCA. In the series’ first episode, we walk around Disneyland Resort’s Downtown Disney as Jim explains how DCA and DTD got built. It’s a tale as old as time, involving one of the great press conference errors of all time, crafty legal maneuvers, and highway elves.
