WEDway Radio - Walt Disney World and Disneyland Examined with some Disney History
Nate Parrish discusses the history of Disney theme parks and the Walt Disney Co. In examining we look at influences that shaped the company including projects and eras. Take a look at attractions and themed lands including the architectural styles and inspiration behind many of the decisions that the Walt Disney Co has made over the years.

In this episode Matt and Nate discuss one of the great Disney films in history, The Swiss Family Robinson, looking at the making of the film and the finished product.  Then the show looks at The Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse and its various incarnations in different Disney theme parks.  Some of the better aspects of the attraction is its use of the mismatched wood resembling the remnants of shipwreck, the cramped feeling of a treehouse and the innovations like the waterwheel, the tortoise shell and kitchen that were all present in both the film and the attraction.  Also, don't miss Matt's big announcement.
