233: WDW Resort Hotels – History, Theming, and More

More than 20 resort hotels sit on Walt Disney World property, and in typical Disney fashion, each resort has its own unique theme, executed with style and incredible attention to detail. On this week’s show, we take a closer look at the three hotels that have been part of Walt Disney World since the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, and then we work our way through the many more that have opened their doors in the years since, all the way to the nearly completed resort: Reflections – A Disney Lakeside Lodge. Join us as we discuss the unique theming at each hotel, how Disney hotels have evolved over the years, and much more!

In another edition of “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” we grade the best and worst hotel entrance signs on property. Plus, we play “Cast That Celebrity” by assigning random actors and actresses the Disney roles we think they would be best at playing on potential reboots or remakes for Disney Plus. Come join the fun!

205: Disney Storytelling: Our Favorite Stories Created for WDW Experiences

Did you know Albert Falls, the founder of the famous Schweitzer Falls featured in Jungle Cruise, had a granddaughter who turned his home into a restaurant for hungry travelers, and that the restaurant is the very Skipper Canteen that’s located in the Magic Kingdom? Or were you aware that the Tree of Life was planted by an ant who wished for a tree that would provide shelter for his animal friends?

Disney Imagineers are known for crafting detailed stories around almost everything they create for the Disney parks, and on this week’s show we take a closer look at some of those stories, from the real identity of Mama Melrose to the mysterious Society of Explorers and Adventurers and beyond!

Also on episode 205, guest Jonathan Harvill joins us for a round of Mad Chatter Jeopardy, in which we provide silly questions for even sillier answers. Plus, we play “Cast That Celebrity” by assigning random actors and actresses to Disney roles. Come join the conversation now!
