There’s a monstrous amount of news this week leading up to the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend including news from Disney’s All-Nighter, Transformers at Universal Orlando, Antarctica at SeaWorld Orlando, Halloween conventions, and a surprise from D23. Then we feature two delightfully entertaining interviews, first with Imagineer Mark Schirmer from Hong Kong Disneyland about Mystic Manor and Mystic Point, then with hilarious actor Jim Cummings, voice of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Darkwing Duck, and so many more animated characters including Hondo Ohnaka of The Clone Wars.
