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.”

119: Looking Ahead to 2017

If the end of the year is for looking back, then the beginning of a new year is a time for looking forward, and that’s exactly what we do on this week’s episode as we break down the biggest events, films, and coming attractions of 2017. What has us excited about movies like Coco and Star Wars: Episode VIII? What are we most looking forward to when Pandora: The World of Avatar opens this summer? We discuss all that and more.

In another round of “Behind the Magic,” we turn our focus to an attraction that deals heavily with the theme of looking forward with hope: Spaceship Earth. We share our favorite details and scenes from this classic Epcot attraction.

Plus, we take a comical gaze into the future and predict what Walt Disney World will look like “In the Year 2071,” and we discuss our New Year’s Disney resolutions for 2017. Come kick off the new year with the latest episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

110: Liberty Square and the Hall of Fictional Presidents

As election season kicks into high gear in the U.S., we’re putting the spotlight on the land in Magic Kingdom dedicated to all things America: Liberty Square. This week we go “Behind the Magic” to highlight attractions like the Liberty Square Riverboat, eateries such as Columbia Harbour House, and the details and hidden gems that make this land worth visiting. Then, we put on our Imagineer hats and imagine what the Hall of Presidents might look like if it featured the best fictional presidents from pop culture.

Also on this week’s show, we discuss Magic Kingdom’s newest nighttime spectacular, hear about each other’s latest Disney Fix, and play a round of “Where in WDW Am I?” Episode 110 is online now!
