    In 1964, when Walt Disney and his brother Roy decided to build a second theme park in the Florida swamplands, they kept it super hush-hush. Why? Well, if word got out that they planned to buy up lots of land, the price would have skyrocketed. So the Disneys cleverly covered up their trail, avoiding the Orlando airport and even using made-up names for their flights. The deception worked. In covering the history of the "Most Magical Place On Earth", Joan Holub takes listeners both behind the scenes and underneath the park (there are secret employee-only tunnels).
