Oct 21, 2020 | Podcast episode, Podketeers

In this episode: This week we discuss how a local car wash is dealing with social distancing measures, Walt Disney World is getting their own license plate for their anniversary while serving a good purpose, the Make-A-Wish foundation and Disney hit a major milestone together, Disney+ gets new warnings for culturally sensitive movies, a 'Be Our Guest' parody video goes viral, and with the parks in California still closed, we propose an idea to get people back in the parks.

It’s our turn to provide some magic!

Sadly, the Disney Company laid off over 28,000 cast members at Disneyland and Walt Disney World due to the pandemic. Different initiatives have started to pop-up working to help cast members that have recently been laid-off.  Here are clickable links some of the ways you can help:

Tunnel of Terror

This Halloween season has been tough for scare junkies because seasonal Haunts are not currently available… at least not in their traditional sense.

The Russell Fischer Xpress car wash in Huntington Beach is converting their car was into the Tunnel of Terror. Here is a portion of the description from their website:

From the comfort of your own vehicle, get a world class car wash, and experience a haunted tunnel that you and loved ones will never forget. 


The Tunnel of Terror is a carefully curated experience,  with ghouls and ghosts popping up throughout the wash, and special effects providing a terrifying ambiance. Participants can also expect unique surprises each night! 

The Tunnel of Terror will be open from 5-10pm on:

  • October 15-17th (Thurs-Sat)
  • October 22-24th (Thurs-Sat)
  • October 29-31st (Thurs-Sat)

Admission starts at $20 per car.

License plates and milestones

The state of Florida will be issuing a special license plate to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. Proceeds from the sale of the license plates will go to benefit Make-A-Wish of Central and Northern Florida.

The license plate design has not yet been revealed but information on how you can get yours should be available on the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website at:


The relationship between the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Disney goes back to the early 1980’s and since then, the Disney Company has helped grant over 140,000 wishes. Recently they hit a huge milestone with the Make-A-Wish as they granted the foundations 500,000 wish!

The milestone was done to celebrate 16-year-old, Karina. Inspired by her memories of summer camp, Disney and Make-A-Wish created Kamp Karina to put a smile on her and her guest’s faces. You can checkout the blog post on the Disney Parks Blog at:

Wear A Mask

Wearing a mask has been found to be one of the most effective means of reducing the risk of contracting COVID-19, however, it hasn’t been widely accepted.
