379 - The Past, Present and The Out of This World


Welcome to the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 379, for Sunday 26th September 2021.

If you want to listen via this page, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio, or any good podcast catching app.On this weeks show we discuss changes to attractions, take a look back in time as well as get all spacey.

Over at Disneyland they are in the process of 'updating' Roger Rabbits Car Toon Spin ride over in Toon Town.

Jessica Rabbit is no longer in the trunk of the car and will be taking on a new detective based role within the attraction. What do you think to these changes? Good, bad or simply just needed?

Carnation Cafe Re-opens
Staying in Disneyland we have seen the re-opening of one of Michelle's favourite eating establishments Carnation Cafe.

Although the re-opening menu is a little scaled back to what we are used to we can all agree it is great to see this back operating.

But did you know that this was originally called Carnation Cafe Ice-cream Parlour when it opened in 1955, and was sponsored by of course, Carnation. We take a look back at the original menu to see what was on offer, have a giggle at the prices and compare to today's offerings.

Eating in Space
And from the past we jettison off into the future over at Epcot's brand new (and long time coming) restaurant Space 220 which opened on 20th September rather appropriately. The restaurant is set a virtual 220 miles above Epcot within the Centauri Space Station and can be reached by way of a 'space elevator'.

Featuring fixed price lunch and dinner menus with some out of this world naming! Blue Moon Cauliflower perhaps or maybe Terra-bolognese or the children's choice of Space-Ghetti!!!!

And of course some equally fun named speciality drinks too...Stargarita anyone? Or how about Celestial Cosmopolitan.

This can all be enjoyed while gazing out into space and taking in the comings and goings of a space station. Keep a look out for a spacedog, surfing astronaut and of course hidden Mickeys.
