152: Lightspeed To Endor -STAR TOURS 30th Anniversary



Former Imagineer Mark Eades joins us to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of STAR TOURS. He was the media producer and casting director for this attraction when it was first designed for Disneyland back in the 1980’s. Because Mark was there from the very start, he has lots of great stories about Anthony Daniels, Pee-Wee Herman, a famous backstage bathroom and a unique perspective of the upcoming Star Wars Land!

Our fairy-podmother, Margaret Kerry (Original Tinker-Bell animator’s model) is back in her Ask Tink segment, doling out advice and wisdom for all of our Skywalkers.

We reveal more details about our Skywalking Podcast Disney cruise this September. Join us for a Halloween On The High Seas cruise! Email Randy Crane at cruise@storiesofthemegic.com for questions and info.
