This week, get spooky with Mousetalgia as we take a look back at the darker side of Disneyland! From Ken Anderson's scary dark rides from the '50s to today's death-defying adventures throughout the park, we take a look at just how dark the park can get. We also present a schedule of online events that you can utilize to enjoy a spook-tacular virtual Halloween weekend. We also talk about the recent news that Disneyland won't be opening anytime soon - but Kristen Carr reports that actually, California Adventure's gates will be swinging open to welcome guests again shortly! Plus - the candy of Disneyland... and Becky's in the house!

This week, we're thinking Tink! You may have thought you knew all there was to know about Tinker Bell, but Mousetalgia dives in and considers the flight of everyone's favorite fairy by looking at some interesting angles. First, we talk to aerialist Gina Rock, who flew across the sky in Disneyland as the fireworks lit up the night. Gina talks about her background as a gymnast, and the experience of portraying the famous pixie in her nightly ritual in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. We also talk to Klay Hall, the director of Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, on helping Disney relaunch Neverland for a new generation. Hall talks about developing Tink as a story editor for the 2008 Tinker Bell feature film, developing Pixie Hollow for Disneyland Park, and helping to guide the franchise as DisneyToon Studios launched the Disney Fairies, reimagining Tinker Bell for today's audiences while keeping her roots as one of Disney's most enduring and beloved characters. Plus - Kristen Carr checks in with a Mousetalgia FastPass... and more.

This week, the Disney community is reeling in the wake of tens of thousands of layoffs, which were made necessary due to the COVID-19 outbreak and complications from the California state government, according to Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks. Team Mousetalgia recognizes that it is the uniqueness of the Disney Cast Member that gives Disneyland its magic, so in this episode, we recognize and honor the Cast Member, both by speaking to a variety of former employees of the park and by offering a few thoughts from our listeners about the joy and happiness that Cast Members add to the Disney experience.
