Out of the many version’s of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, the version at the Magic Kingdom has always stood out to me as one of the stranger examples of a cloned Disney attraction. Specifically, the lack of similarities those two attractions have despite being made within a few years of one another. In this video […]

PRH 2018 Update [READ DESC]

Hey kids, Jack here. Apologies for making you have to read all this instead of just listening to it. I just wanted to get this info out as soon as possible and having to record it a few hundred takes so the audio sounds good would take too long (plus I’m currently about waist-high in […]

The History of & Changes to Maelstrom (Frozen Ever After) | Epcot

The long awaited “Remastered” version of The History of & Changes to Maelstrom video. I had been meaning to remake the original video for some time now, considering the fact that it was my first video and didn’t exactly hold up quality-wise compared to some of my more recent ones. Now completed with even more […]

A Tribute to Disney’s Community of Tomorrow (The Origins of EPCOT Center)

Epcot has been my favorite Disney World park for quite a while now, but what I’ve always found more fascinating than the park is it’s backstory, and how when it was first conceptualized, wasn’t even meant to be a theme park. This tribute video traces back the idea to Walt Disney, then follows it’s evolution […]

Kitchen Kabaret and Food Rocks | Keep Epcot Weird Ep. 3
