This week’s episode is a little different than our normal format. In this episode we describe and discuss the beginnings of the Florida Project. We look at the reasons Disney began to look for a second location, some of the areas they investigated, and the great story that makes up the research and eventual purchase of the property in Florida. We couldn’t put an episode like this together without the great informational sources available on the web about this subject. In our research, we used the following resources:
