Ep336: Moving On

Nov 25, 2020 | Podcast episode, Podketeers

In this episode: This week we celebrate Toy Story's 25 anniversary by ranking the films in the series and talk the impact the films have had on the industry, the Mandalorian has a small slipup and the internet goes nuts, and we discuss the news about Imagineer Joe Rohde announcing his retirement from Walt Disney Imagineering after an illustrious 40 year career.

Returning the magic!

Sadly, the Disney Company laid off over 28,000 cast members (and counting) at Disneyland and Walt Disney World due to the pandemic. There have been many initiatives setup to help cast members and in this episode we talk about shifting our current Teamboat Willie fundraising efforts to help cast members in need.

We’ve setup our own food drive to try to help as many cast members as possible, One of the things we love about what Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is doing is that for every dollar donated will provide the equivalent of 3 meals per person. That’s amazing! To help, you can click the image below to make a donation or help us out by sharing our donation page with your friends and family so that we can try to help as many cast members as possible.

Below are other resources you can use to help furloughed and recently laid off cast members.

If you would still like to donate to our CHOC Walk fundraiser to help the Children’s Hospital of Orange County the information is listed further down in this post.


The Mandalorian

The latest episode of The Mandalorian (Chapter 12: The Siege) has a tiny error where you can see someone in a t-shirt and jeans in the background.

As we discussed in this week’s episode that we think this might just be the fact that the best take had the error, the take couldn’t be reshot and it went out with that scene. Overall this isn’t a huge deal to us since we’ve seen things like this happen before even in major motion pictures.

Thank you, Joe

After an amazing 40 year career with Walt Disney Imagineering, Joe Rohde was decided to move on and retire (effective January 4, 2021).

This news caught many by surprise but reading Joe’s Instagram post you can see why the decision was made. 

We would like to extend our thanks to Joe for his contributions to the parks and resorts. We will miss his dynamic personality and his unparalleled passion for storytelling within theme parks.
