This week we had the news that Bob Iger is stepping down as CEO of The Walt Disney Company with immediate effect and current Chairman of Disney Parks, Experience & Products, Bob Chapek, will take over. He will become the 7th CEO in the Walt Disney Company's almost 100 years existence.

Bob Eiger will assume the role of Executive Chairman and direct the company's creative endeavours while leading the board until 31st December 2021.

So what will this mean for Disney? Only time will tell!

Jungle Cruise Guests Get a Sinking Feeling
Bomokandi Bertha started taking in water on the very popular attraction - Jungle Cruise (over in Walt Disney . Disney released a statement in which they said the Reedy Creek Fire Department were on the scene quickly and that they worked with guests to enable them to continue their day.  

New Spirit Jerseys

Jayne has been scouring websites for Disney merchandise. We discuss some of the new ones that are available.

Magic Happens
Jayne managed to view a youtube video of the parade and she shares some of her thoughts of this new Disneyland parade. 

The parade has new music by Todrick Hall (Jayne is a bit of a fan!) and includes some amazing floats, stunning costumes and a very catchy soundtrack. It is full of glam, glitz and plenty of Disney camp.
Premiering officially on 28th February, the parade runs at 3.30pm and 6pm daily and makes its way from 'It's a small world' promenade to Main Street Town Square. Floats feature Mickey & Pals, Moana (even Hei Hei gets a special appearance), Coco, Frozen, Cinderella, Sword in the Stone, Princess & the Frog and Sleeping Beauty.
Many thanks to Tiffany Clontz for these photos - doesn't it look amazing?!!

Food and Wine Festival at DCA
This is running from the 28th of February to 21st April 2020. We will review the menus in full for our Patreon supporters, however, we did mention one or two items on the show.
What Would You Do if You Were CEO?
We discuss some of our listener's ideas on what they would do if they were given this role. Let's hope the message reaches the powers that be at Disney and we see some of these ideas coming in to play.

We end the show by wishing our good friend, David Maruca, a very happy birthday for the 7th March.
