Like sands through the hour glass, summer has slipped away and suddenly become Halloween! Pumpkins line Main Street USA at Disneyland and new Halloween treats have transformed Disney California Adventure. But that's not all, we have a few more tricks up our sleeve on this fun episode of the show.

We also pay tribute to another beloved Disney legend, X Atencio, who passed away last week at the ripe old age of 98. We should all be so lucky.

So much Disney controversy this month! Pirates of the Caribbean going PC, Trump on his way to the Hall of Presidents, and changes to Fantasmic. But it's not all angst and strife. Huge new attractions are on the way to all the Disney Resorts and the D23 Expo should cement those plans. Doug and Dusty are your advocates into all things theme park. Let's explore the next wave of theme park excitement!

Disneyland and Disney World news and rumors abound in the April MiceChat Podcast. Plus, we take a deep dive into what might be coming to Epcot in the next decade. It's an impressive line-up, but is Disney abandoning the world's fair theme of this aging park? And would that be a good or bad thing?

There was almost too much for us to get to this week. Food and Wine has returned to Disney California Adventure. Avatar is about to turn Animal Kingdom blue. And there are two new Orlando attractions which aren't getting great buzz. There's lots for Doug and Dusty to dish about!
