Episode 87 – Len Testa from Touring Plans talks Star Wars Galaxy Edge at Disney and more

Episode Description

Len Testa, founder of Touring Plans, returns to talk a whole bunch of Walt Disney World topics. We touch on how Touring Plans has had to evolve, how insane Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge will be next year, upcoming changes to ticket packages (including how Disney might implement multi-day peak pricing), and most importantly, the best theory I’ve ever heard on why Disney’s IT is so bad…
