199: The Magic of Audio-Animatronics: From the Dancing Man to the Shaman

Audio-animatronics have been a staple of Disney parks for over five decades. But what many guests might not realize is that “Audio-Animatronics” is a registered trademark because Walt Disney and his team of Imagineers were actually responsible for inventing the technology! On this week’s show we trace the history of audio-animatronics, stopping along the way to discuss some of the biggest milestones and our personal favorite audio-animatronics, including Abraham Lincoln, the Tiki Room birds, Hopper, and much more.

Also on this week’s episode, Jeremy and Matt discuss their recent adventures in Walt Disney World and share their thoughts on the World of Disney’s new look, Toy Story Land, and more. Plus, we play another round of Take 5 by sharing our thoughts on various Disney topics using only five words. Tune in now!

63: Top 5 Audio-Animatronics at WDW

It’s hard to think of Walt Disney World without picturing the many audio-animatronics that serve as guides on certain attractions. In fact, the very term “audio-animatronic” is a registered trademark of Walt Disney Imagineering.

In light of the recent news that three iconic audio-animatronics from long ago have made a triumphant return to Walt Disney World, this week we are counting down our five favorite animated robots across the four parks, from the human figures that seem too lifelike to be fake, to the goofy characters that simply make us happy.

In this week’s Very Merry “Chatmas” Moment, we discuss this year’s selection of holiday snacks at Walt Disney World. Plus, host Jeremy and his pal Steve return with another Mad Chatter Game, this time quizzing Matt and Derek on their knowledge of Disney Channel films.
