171: IllumiNations: Reflections on 30 Years

We’ve gathered here tonight around the fire, as people of all lands have gathered for thousands and thousands of years before us, to share the light and to share a story — the story of how one nighttime show is turning 30 years old this month!

Join us as we look back at three decades of IllumiNations, the fireworks/laser/fire spectacular that takes place every night on World Showcase Lagoon. On this week’s episode, we reflect on what this show has meant to Disney fans and why the current show, Reflections of Earth, is significant. Plus, we discuss where nighttime entertainment at Epcot should go from here.

Also on show 171, we answer a few listener emails, share our Disney resolutions for 2018, and review our recent lunch at Restaurant Marrakesh. Come join the fun!

143: The Art of the Pre-Show

An entire episode about pre-shows? Wait a minute . . . I love that idea!

This week we have an open discussion about attraction pre-shows at Walt Disney World by answering the question, “What qualities do the best pre-shows possess?” We visit rides like Tower of Terror and Soarin’ and characters including Dr. Marsh and Sergeant C4703BK2704-90210, and we give our own take on what makes a pre-show great, which WDW attractions have the best and worst pre-shows, and why pre-shows are important.

Also on this week’s show: Matt and Derek review their recent lunch at Tiffins, we share our thoughts on Cars 3 and the latest Pirates film, and we play “What’s the Score?” in which we try to guess the movie based on the names of individual tracks in that movie’s original score.
