The Disney Decade, part 1

by The Disney Dish Podcast with Jim Hill Media



After Splash Mountain opened at Disneyland in 1989, CEO Michael Eisner turned his attention to the long-range plans for the company. What he came up with was "The Disney Decade" - an ambitious, 10-year plan to vastly expand Disneyland and Walt Disney World with new attractions, hotels, and more.

Jim and Len talk about the plans for 1990 through 1996, include what was built and what wasn't. For the things not built, Jim talks about why they were not built and what they would have been.

Recorded live in Epcot.
