203: 5 Aspects of Disney Parks Worldwide We’d Bring to Walt Disney World

This week we’re going global! On our latest episode we take a closer look at the eight Disney parks outside Florida, and we each highlight five aspects of those parks that we think could be incorporated well at Walt Disney World. Joining the discussion is guest Jeff Birou, who has had the privilege of visiting all 12 Disney parks worldwide and is able to give us the scoop on what the international parks do best.

Also on this week’s show, we showcase the career and incredible achievements of Disney Legend Mary Blair. Plus, we share our picks for the good, bad, and ugly water features in WDW, and we play our favorite game of hide and seek: Where in WDW Am I? Come play along on episode 203!

90: Disneyland FAQs + A Peek at “The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head”

If Walt Disney toured Magic Kingdom today, what would he say about the current state of the park? That’s the premise of the upcoming film “The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head,” in which a low-level employee stumbles upon Walt’s head in storage and is persuaded to take him around Walt Disney World. Ben Lancaster, the man behind the film, joins us to discuss what it was like shooting in Magic Kingdom without permission, what he hopes to accomplish with the piece, and how Disney fans can get involved. Plus, he joins us for a “Price is Right”-style game, in which we try to guess the costs of various Walt Disney World items and experiences.

After that, we turn our attention to Disneyland to address a few listener questions about what it’s like vacationing at Walt’s original park. Special guest Teri, who is taking a trip to Disneyland in July, presents us with her own list of questions about what to expect, whether or not a Park Hopper is worth it, where to eat, and more.

To find out more about “The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head,” follow Ben on Twitter (@WaltsFrzenHead) and check out the film’s Kickstarter site.

71: Countdown to Parkstinction – Disney(‘s) California Adventure: 2001

This week we once again hop in our Time Rovers and take a trip back to the past. This time our destination is 2001, when Disney California Adventure first opened to the public. Joining us for our virtual tour of one of Disney’s most scrutinized parks is Guy Selga (@GuySelga) of Touring Plans. Together we walk the streets of DCA 1.0 and discuss extinct attractions and locations like the Sun Icon, Disney’s Eureka! A California Parade, and the infamous Superstar Limo.

Hot topics on this week’s show include one family’s suit against Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s nine Oscar nominations, and a Guardian article about the “problem” with Disney princesses.

68: Do This, Not That (Animal Kingdom)

This week we continue our “Do This, Not That” series, in which we share our tips for what can’t be missed at Walt Disney World . . . and what can be skipped if pressed for time.

In another Mad Chatter Top 10, we count down the Top 10 Signs You’re at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2016. Plus, we discuss the latest round of closings at Disneyland, and in the Mad Chatter game, “In a World,” we guess the Disney film based on its horror-fied synopsis.
