220: World of Emotion: The Fear, Disgust, Laughter, Sadness, and Joy We Experience at Walt Disney World

Anyone who has visited Walt Disney World knows that a trip to a Disney park can take you on a roller coaster of emotions. On this week’s show, special guest Vincent from Vincent Vision joins us as we each share the moments, attractions, and places that, for us, spark joy, sadness, fear, laughter, and disgust. From the highest highs to the lowest lows, we discuss the elements of the parks that stir up our emotions the most.

Also on show 220, we share our picks for the good, bad, and ugly gift shops at the Walt Disney World Resort. Plus, we put together a playlist of our favorite covers of Disney songs. Come join the fun now!

It’s our 20th Mad Q Party! Join us and guest Brandon Hawkins for the 20th edition of our favorite hypothetical questionnaire.

Also on this week’s show, we spout off some 11-Second Rants and share some stories from the parks that made us ask, “Did that just happen?” Plus, we share our thoughts on Tim Burton’s Dumbo, review Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, discuss the latest WDW news, and more!

217: Disney’s Hollywood Studios: 30 Years, 30 Properties

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is turning 30! And if the new logo and the new parking signs are any indication, then characters from Frozen, Toy Story, and Star Wars are to be the official faces of the park, moving forward. But these are just the latest franchises to join the park’s deep well of past properties and characters, and on this week’s show we’re looking back at all of them! Join us and special guest Marshal Knight for a deep dive into 30 properties that have had a presence at Disney’s Hollywood Studios since the park first opened. Think of it as a DHS yearbook…

In another Mad Chatter game, we test our knowledge of which celebrities have handprints in front of the Chinese Theater, and which do not. Plus, Jeremy shares about a park scavenger hunt he hosted, and we discuss the latest Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge news.

216: Heads Up: Our Favorite Overhead Details in Walt Disney World

Sometimes the best details and an entirely different perspective are awaiting you overhead, and all you have to do to see them is look up. On this week’s show, guest Jeff Birou joins us for a tour of Walt Disney World, in which we stop in each park to share our favorite architectural details, beautiful artwork, and other features that are above eye level.

In another edition of “The Windows of Main Street, U.S.A.” we pay homage to the late Ron Miller, Walt’s son-in-law who made great contributions to The Walt Disney Company in the 70s and 80s. Plus, we play another round of “Where in WDW Am I?” and we provide our own suggestions for which bands we think should appear at the Garden Rocks concert series in Epcot. Come join the fun!

209: Magic in the Air: Celebrating the Holidays at Walt Disney World

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — to be at Walt Disney World! (Or at least we think it is.) Last week we packed in as many of WDW’s Christmas offerings as we could in four days, including Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, the Candlelight Processional at Epcot, the gorgeous decorations at the deluxe resorts, and much more! On this week’s show, guest Teri Deel helps us break down all of the limited-time experiences the parks and resorts have to offer this time of year, from the so-so to the cant-misses. Tune in for this on-the-scene report of what it’s like to celebrate the holidays at Walt Disney World! Warning: Not suitable for those averse to Christmas cheer.

Also on show 209, we do some Armchair Imagineering by coming up with our own ideas for limited-time holiday overlays, new floats for the Christmas parade, and more. Plus, we play a festive holiday edition of Mad Chatter Jeopardy. Come join the fun now!
