208: Live-Action Films, Documentaries, and the Disney Parks

Did you know Disney released 16 live-action films between One Hundred and One Dalmatians (1961) and The Sword in the Stone (1963)? You’ve probably never met anyone whose favorite Disney film is Greyfriars Bobby, but the fact is these films hold a special place in many people’s hearts, and they make up a huge portion of the Disney film catalog.

On this week’s show, Jeff DePaoli of Dizney Coast to Coast joins us for a deep dive into Disney’s live-action films, from 1950’s Treasure Island to the upcoming live-action remake of Dumbo. We discuss the history of Walt’s interest in live action, our favorite films from this category, where these films show up in Walt Disney World, and much more! Plus, Jeremy walks us through ten Disney documentaries he especially recommends Disney fans watch.

In another round of Take 5, we use just five words to respond to categories such as “The Current Condition of WDW Monorails” and “Song Titles in Frozen 2.” Plus, we discuss the big news that was announced at this year’s Destination D. Come join the discussion now!

Be sure to check out Jeff’s podcast and let him know you enjoyed hearing him on our show: Dizney Coast to Coast.

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!

179: Dining at Disney’s BoardWalk and Yacht and Beach Club

This week our series on the table service restaurants at Walt Disney World takes us to the BoardWalk area, where we visit nine dining locations at three different Disney resort hotels, including Beaches & Cream, Flying Fish, Yachtsman Steakhouse, and the new Ale & Compass. Join us for another culinary tour as we read these menus and give our own takes.

In another Mad Chatter game, we try to guess the Disney movie based on the film’s dialogue at the 30-minute mark. Plus, we host another zany round of Chatter Jeopardy, in which we provide ridiculous questions to off-the-wall answers. Come join the fun!
