Episode #144 - Cruising Back In Time: The Queen Mary and Port Disney Sea Long Beach Project



Welcome to episode #144!

How in the world did The Walt Disney Company come into possession of the famous cruise liner, the Queen Mary, Howard Hughes Spruce Goose airplane and over 200 acres of surrounding land at the port of Long Beach, California? Did you know that for many years they operated the Queen Mary and had plans to build a theme park, hotels, restaurants, a marina, a cruise ship terminal and even a monorail and more? 

Well, we are going to "cruise back in time" with Disney historian and author, Jim Korkis to tell us this fascinating and detailed story.  This was a monumental and amazing project that Disney wanted to construct. It would have been the most incredible Disney project ever and Jim has all the unbelievable information and why it was ultimately abandoned. 

Jim is author of over 30 books and has worked for The Walt Disney Company in many different and interesting capacities. If you are interested in Disney history and what goes on behind the scenes, Jim definitely always has a wonderful story to share. 

You can find Jim's books on Amazon.com 
You can also find his books at ThemeParkPress.com
Jim also writes a column for MousePlanet.com too!

Enjoy the show!

Episode #139 - Treated Like Royalty on The Royal Princess



Welcome to episode #139!

On this new podcast episode, Tommy shares his recent cruise on the Royal Princess to the Mexican Riviera! This seven day cruise had port stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta. Beside having perfect warm weather and smooth sailing seas, the Royal Princess crew was treating Tommy and his wife Lena like royalty (here's a secret...they treat everyone like royalty!). 

From the food, to the shows, to the specialty restaurants, to the rejuvenating spa, the Enclave and then add the amazing Ocean Medallion on top of it, the Royal Princess is a phenomenal ship and cruising experience. We are so elated to have such a beautiful ship on the West Coast! 

Tommy and Lena loved their cruise so much that they are booked again on the Royal Princess, November 16, 2019! After you hear this show, you just might want to join them! 

Enjoy the show!
