The Right Stuff – Episode 5 – The Kona Kai Séance
This show has become one of my favourite shows of the year and I’d recommend it to any adult with a Disney+ subscription. This episode continues towards the launch of the first man in space, with both Glenn and Shepard trying to do everything they possibly can to be that person. With the relationship between the two astronauts becoming more strained as Glenn steps in to stop a reporter after Shephard is caught in comprising situation.

Disney popped this onto Disney+ last Friday in a surprise release, so you might have missed it. Join Woody, Buzz, Jessie and their pals in a frighteningly fun animated adventure. What starts out as an exciting road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse following a detour to a roadside motel. After Mr. Potato Head suddenly disappears, his friends find themselves caught up in a hilarious mystery that must be solved before they suffer the same fate in this thrilling Toy Story Of Terror!

The Magic Of Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Episode Six – Peri’s Prickly Pregnancy
In this sixth episode of the behind the scenes look at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom theme park, we get to learn more about Peri the porcupine, who is about to give birth to a fuzzy new baby. We also get to learn more about how the team keep, Anala, a super-smart Sumatran tiger, mentally and physically stimulated. I always love visiting the Maharajah Jungle Trek while at the park, so I really enjoyed watching this part of the episode. There is also some fun with Dugan, a southern white rhino, who gets to enjoy a birthday party and receives a surprise gift from the local fire department, which is really fun to see him play with.
Episode 6 comes to Disney+ on Friday 30th October, with the previous 5 episodes available now.
