It's that time where we all look back on what we've accomplished the previous year and look ahead to what is to come. Disney has one of it's biggest years ever (probably most significant of the decade), breaking box office records left and right, and making sweeping changes to the parks...not to mention starting their own streaming service.

In this episode, Rachael and Keenan look back on what Disney accomplished in 2019, the biggest (and most controversial) stories from that year, and look ahead to see what Disney has in store for 2020. Can 2020 be as big as 2019? Stay tuned to find out Part of Our World's thoughts.

In light of the Jungle Cruise trailer that dropped this past week, Rachael and Keenan discuss the various Disney World attractions that have been made into movies, for better or for worse, and brainstorm some of their own ideas for an attraction from each WDW park that could be made into a movie. Now whether or not they should is a whole 'nother the great Ian Malcolm once said, "Your [imagineers] were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should."


What did you think of Rachael and Keenan's movie ideas? How would you make them better? Do you have any ideas for attractions made into movies that weren't covered on this episode?
