On this episode, Eli asks whether or not Expedition Everest should be rethemed to an IP attraction? This conversation comes on the heels of the Disney-fan firestorm that was created when Bob Iger’s Barron’s article was released. To summarize the part of the article that caused the Disney-fan discomfort, it is stated that interest from a potential audience is higher with an IP-based attraction rather than a nondescript coaster based on India somewhere. The article has since been edited to remove any indication of that statement.
In addition, we go into the mailbag and see what our listeners want to say today.

THE HUB – Should Expedition Everest Be Rethemed to an IP?
Summary for thought of topic:
Bob Iger was interviewed by Barron’s in regards to his day to day life running Disney and what to expect from the parks, movies and the streaming service in the coming future. When asked about the rides, he said that he loves to go to the rides that have an IP and not a nondescript ride that could be in India. Disney-ans and Joe Rohde commented on twitter that Iger was talking about everest. Was this quote blown out of proportion?
The article was changed to say Iger likes all the rides and Iger himself went on twitter to say he likes Expedition Everest. But since the yeti has been broken for many years and it looks like everest would have to be shut down for a while to fix it, should it just be revamped as an IP?
