Thanks for downloading WEDWay Radio. This is the Disney History Show. This is the final season of WEDWay Radio episode 3. On this episode we explore a fondly remembered, yet underdeveloped area of the Magic Kingdom, Mickey's Birthdayland.

Birthday was a land created to celebrate Mickey Mouse's 60th birthday in 1988. It lasted through three iterations, including its longest: Mickey's Toontown Fair.

Thanks for downloading WEDWay Radio. This is the Disney history show. This is the follow up to episode 1 - The Western River Expedition.

On this episode we pose this question to our listeners and discuss the answers:

Would you rather have the entire Thunder Mesa area including the Mine Train, Pack Mules, Walking Trials and The Western River Expedition at Walt Disney World or what would eventually come to occupy and replace that area and budget money - Pirates of the Caribbean, Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain? Why?
