181: Flops and Failures – 8 WDW Attractions That Underwhelmed

Not every idea is gold. On this week’s show we look back at eight specific ideas implemented at Walt Disney World that had less-than-stellar results. From attractions guests loathed to audio-animatronics that didn’t quite live up to what Disney promised, we discuss Walt Disney World’s biggest flops and bombs over the last four decades.

In a round of Armchair Imagineering, we present our ideas for what Disney might be planning in the former location of River Country, where some construction seems to be taking place. Plus, we introduce a new Disney hashtag (#DisneyfyAMovie) and discuss the latest price increases for WDW Resort hotel guests. Come join the conversation!

180: Let’s Talk About World Showcase

With few characters, only two rides, and not a single show that requires you to arrive early, World Showcase is unlike any other area in Walt Disney World and remains an enigma to many vacationers. On this week’s show, we take a close look at the 11 pavilions that make up World Showcase and discuss what it is that makes this area worth a visit, from the hidden gems we love to the can’t-miss dining experiences to the smallest details you might have missed. Come with us on a deep dive into one of Walt Disney World’s most beautiful regions.

Also on episode 180: 11-Second Rants, a dinner review of Ale & Compass, the latest Pixar Pier updates, and more! Tune in now!
