54: Star Wars Land and the Future of Disney Parks

Once again, the Disney Twitterverse has been up in arms as of late. During the past week, two specific news items have gotten our favorite Disney Tweeters talking: an increase in Annual Pass prices and big changes coming to Disneyland’s Rivers of America (thanks to Star Wars Land). On this week’s show, we chat about these announcements and what they mean for the future of Disneyland and Walt Disney World. How much is too much for entrance into Walt Disney World? What parts of the parks are too sacred to be touched by incoming franchises?

In a round of personal stories, we each share about a time in a Disney park that made us ask, “Did that just happen?” Plus, we answer a listener’s question about making the most of FastPass+. All that and more awaits you on episode 54 of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

26: Before and After: Pre-Trip and Post-Trip Rituals

Every Disney-park regular knows the excitement that surrounds another trip to Walt Disney World. This week we discuss the little things we like to do when gearing up for a trip, as well as the ways in which we cope after having returned to the real world.

In “The Disney Fix,” we each share one way in which the Disney universe creeped into our lives this week. Plus, in another round of “Take Five” we describe a few Disney categories in just five words.

24: One and Done – Disney Attractions We Probably Won’t Experience Again

Whether because they made us sick, bored us to tears, or left us asking, “Why?” there are some Disney experiences we are perfectly content to never have again. This week we list the foods, rides, shows, and more that best fit the category “One and Done.”

In a new segment called “You Be the Judge,” we go head to head in Disney debates while the third Chatter chooses a winner. Plus, we unburden ourselves with some 11-Second Rants. It all happens on episode 24 of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

23: Animated Films in the Parks: 1937-1949

One of the charms of Walt Disney World is its ability to bring the Disney animated films to life right before your eyes. This week we focus on the films of the 1930s and 40s and talk about their representation (or lack thereof) in the four parks. We discuss the surprising number of nods to The Three Caballeros, as well as the disappointing lack of Bambi references.

We also chat about the many exciting changes going on at Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, plus the beginning of the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot.

In another Mad Chatter game, Matt and Derek go head to head in “Magic Kingdom By the Numbers.” All this and more can be heard on episode 23 of The Mad Chatters Podcast.
