This week, Team Mousetalgia takes you to the floor of Mouse-con 2019, the fifth annual yearly gathering of Bay Area Disney fans hosted at the Crowne Plaza Inn in Concord, CA. We share our live recordings of some of the goings on, including discussions of our purchases, the cosplay, our presentations, and the convention itself. Plus, we feature audio from two of the special guests' presentations, including animator Willie Ito, who tells us how he got started in the field of animation and what it was like to work on the Disney Studio lot; and Disney Legend Linda Larkin, the voice of Princess Jasmine, who talks about what it was like to be a part of the original animated production of Aladdin, and her special memories of working with Robin Williams. Plus - floor interviews from convention guests, and more!
