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!

156: Dining at Walt Disney World’s Monorail Resorts

All aboard the Walt Disney World monorail, your highway in the sky and your direct access to the ten delicious table-service restaurants at the three deluxe resorts near Magic Kingdom. On this week’s show, we take a grand circle tour around the Seven Seas Lagoon in order to highlight the sit-down offerings at Disney’s Contemporary, Polynesian Village, and Grand Floridian Resorts, including Chef Mickey’s, Kona Cafe, Citricos, and Victoria & Albert’s. Join us as we read the menus and take a closer look at what these dining locations have to offer.

In another Mad Chatter game, we try to guess the Disney Legend based on one-word clues. Plus, we do some Armchair Imagineering by providing our own ideas for how the Walt Disney World parks can emulate Cars Land’s Haul-O-Ween takeover and get into the Halloween spirit. Come hungry and come often!

16: Disney Urban Legends – Fact Vs. Fiction

Is Walt Disney World home to a private, hidden club? Has anyone died on a Disney attraction? Do the Disney films have underlying messages that aren’t suitable for kids? This week we discuss the most popular Disney urban legends, separating the real stories from the myths.

In another Resort Roundup, we turn our attention to Disney’s Contemporary Resort, next door to Magic Kingdom. We focus on the architecture, the food, and the perks of staying there.

Plus, we talk about the new bungalows at Polynesian Village Resort, report on the progress of the new Starbucks at Hollywood Studios, and let off some steam in another round of 11-Second Rants.
