Disney is planning to put $60 billion into its parks, experiences and products division over the next 10 years. That means new investments at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, the cruise line and other parks. But what would Disney do with $60 billion? What would YOU do with it?

On this episode, senior editor Jamie Biesiada tells host Rebecca Tobin what Disney has done recently, what it’s competition is up to (hello, Epic Universe!), and what Disney travel experts hope to see: Simplified access and line reservation tools? A new park altogether? Different options for the youngest Disneyphiles? Or something else altogether?

In the final section, we talk about Disney’s exclusive Earmarked conference for its top travel agencies and why access is so important. Plus, host Rebecca Tobin’s favorite ride at Walt Disney World (hint: It’s not technically inside the parks).
