197: A Star Is Born – 11 Times Alan Menken Made Disney Magic

Back in 1989, composer Alan Menken made his Disney debut with the majestic score and the memorable songs featured in The Little Mermaid. The film not only launched the famous Disney Renaissance of the 1990s, but it also marked the start of a beautiful partnership between Disney and Menken, who ended up creating music for classics such as Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, and more.

On this week’s show we take a closer look at 11 Disney projects for which Menken provided the music, and we share our picks for the most essential Menken tunes.

Also on this week’s episode, we highlight the good, bad, and ugly interiors of quick service restaurants at Walt Disney World. Check it out on show 197!

52: Animated Films in the Parks – The 1990s

On this week’s show we continue our series on the Disney animated films and their presence at Walt Disney World. As we venture into the 90s, we talk about the films that were part of the “renaissance” that The Little Mermaid helped launch in 1989. From hits like Aladdin and The Lion King to smaller successes like Hercules, we discuss where to look to find hints of the 90s.

In “It’s the Small Things After All,” we each share a sort of hidden gem at Walt Disney World that we especially enjoy. Plus, Jeremy hosts the game “Disney Before and After.” All sorts of fun awaits you on episode 52 of The Mad Chatters Podcast!
