140: Movies to Watch Before a WDW Vacation

Get that Netflix queue ready! On this week’s show we share our picks for the films that will best prepare you, educate you, and give you all the Disney feels before you take a trip to Walt Disney World. From obvious films that have ample representation in the parks to non-Disney films that will help you better appreciate the details, we recommend plenty of movies to help you pass the weeks and months leading up to your vacation.

In this week’s round of “Behind the Magic,” we take a closer look at Journey Into Imagination With Figment on its 15th anniversary. Plus, we play the new game “Chatter Jeopardy” by providing responses in the form of questions to answers such as “Big, angry, and hairy.”

133: Top 5 Film Tie-Ins at Walt Disney World

Incorporating a film into the Disney parks is an art. It requires a delicate balance in which Imagineers must give the movie justice and the treatment it deserves without making it feel forced or shoehorned into a certain space. On this week’s show, we chat about those times when the Imagineers nailed it. From entire attractions to single, fleeting moments, we count down our top five ways in which a Disney film has been brought to Walt Disney World.

Also on this week’s episode, we have some fun with the hashtag #BadDisneySequels. Plus, Derek hosts a rematch of the game “Before and After,” in which Matt and Jeremy solve brand new clues describing mashups of various Disney films, songs, and attractions. Come play along now!

125: Meeting Characters 101

You can hardly take ten steps in a Disney park without coming across a costumed character (or at least a queue of people waiting to meet one). For some, meeting characters is as much a part of a Walt Disney World vacation as seeing Cinderella Castle for the first time or riding It’s a Small World. So, what’s all the fuss about? And what do you need to know before you dive into the world of character meet and greets?

We’ve got you covered on this week’s episode, as we list the pros and cons of meeting characters, discuss our picks for the best and worst meet and greets in Walt Disney World, and even share a few of our favorite personal experiences meeting characters.

In the news, Disney has announced several opening dates of upcoming experiences. We share our thoughts on coming attractions such as Rivers of Light, Pandora, and the brand new nighttime spectacular “Happily Ever After.” Plus, Matt and Derek review two Disney Springs restaurants (Paddlefish and Boathouse), and in a Mad Chatter game, we test our knowledge of voice actors in Disney animated films. Come play along now!

116: The Best and Worst WDW Trends of 2016

As another year comes to an end, we take a look back at seven of Walt Disney World’s biggest trends over the last 12 months. As we focus on topics like hard-ticket events, unique dining, and the Muppets, we give our take on which of these trends have outstayed their welcome and which ones we’d love to see continue into the new year.

In another Mad Chatter game, Matt and Jeremy try to guess the animated film based on a quote pulled from Roger Ebert’s review. Plus, we sit down with choral director Mitch to talk about Candlelight Processional and what it’s like taking a high school choir to Orlando to participate.
