How Much Food Does Disney World Sell?

Walt Disney World is big, and a lot of people visit it every day. Those people, like most people, need to eat. That means Disney sells food. Lots and lots of food. This is a video I’ve wanted to make for a while, and thanks to a couple of fact sheets from Disney themselves, I […]

EPCOT Center’s Honor Roll

When Epcot Center opened in 1982, it was unique. While it wasn’t Walt Disney’s city of the future, it did manage to avoid becoming a second Magic Kingdom. It blended theme park and World’s Fair into one, all with a Disney touch. As it would turn out, the novelty of that unique park didn’t last […]
