We welcome to the podcast Disney historian, author, former friend of Merlin and Disney Cast Member - Jim Korkis.

We start this segment, by discussing the Kukui Nut Tree, that can be found at the Polynesian Resort. This tree was given to the resort by a former guest as a symbol of protection and peace. To find the tree, you need to go to the Great Ceremonial House and hopefully the picture below will help you.

Whilst this tree no longer has the signage, it is a prominent part of the resort and I urge you to go track it down.

Another discussion topic was the Disney/Beatles link. Did you know that John Lennon was actually staying at the Polynesian Resort when he signed the contract to disband the band?
Then we move on to discuss the lagoon show and how it evolved into the Main Street Electrical Parade.
We hope you enjoyed the show, next week will be reviewing the Christmas offerings in the USA Disney theme parks but we will be back with other selected highlights from Jim in the very near future.
