213: Mickey’s Celebration, Festival of the Arts, Kingdom Hearts, and More

In this bonus episode of the podcast (look for a brand new full episode next week!), we take a closer look at the new Disney offerings that debuted in January of this year. First, we give our take on Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Magic Kingdom, as well as “An Incredible Celebration” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In special editions of “Munchies and Merch” and “Armchair Imagineering,” we talk about the new treats and souvenirs we have our eyes on, plus we come up with ideas for a Pixar character meal at Walt Disney World.

Also on show 213, we discuss why we are so excited to attend this year’s Festival of the Arts at Epcot, and we create a Mad Chatters Playlist featuring some of our favorite tunes from Disney Theatrical productions. Plus, friend of the show Zach clues us in on Kingdom Hearts III, what to expect from the brand new video game, and why Disney fans might want to dive in to the Kingdom Hearts series if they have not already. All that and more awaits you on this episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

This week we’re joined by special guest and Broadway star Jenn Gambatese, who just wrapped up a weekend of performances at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts as part of its “Disney on Broadway” concert series. We spoke to Jenn about her extensive Broadway career, her favorite roles (including Jane in Disney’s Tarzan), and what it was like filling in last minute at the Epcot festival.

Also on this week’s show, we take a closer look at the new restaurants that opened last week at Disney Springs, including Pizza Ponte and The Edison, and we take you inside the first weekend of the Festival of the Arts. Plus, in another Mad Chatter game, we play “Disney by the Numbers.” Come join the fun on episode 172!
