New Disney Dish Podcast w/ Jim Hill: Tokyo Disneyland’s 30th Birthday

Join Jim and me as we discuss the history of Tokyo Disneyland, from its conception through opening day and its reception by the Japanese people. ¬†While the Oriental Land Company had long wanted a Disneyland of its own, it wasn’t until the late 1970’s when Disney finally took the idea seriously. Hear what it was like to be in those negotiations and how future projects, such as Tokyo DisneySea, also happened. And Jim has a surprisingly not disturbing discussion on Tokyo secretaries.

Here’s the link to listen in iTunes.¬†Here’s the direct MP3 file.
