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!

204: Voicing Disney Attractions: An Interview With Mike Brassell

If this week’s guest sounds familiar, it might be because you’ve ridden one or both of the Walt Disney World attractions he currently narrates! Joining us is voice actor Mike Brassell, who lends his voice to both the PeopleMover in the Magic Kingdom and Living With the Land in Epcot. We spoke to Mike about the events that led to these roles, what it’s like hearing his own voice when riding these attractions, and the other Disney projects he’s been part of.

Also on episode 204, we’re joined once again by Mad Chatter Matt! Our OG cohost joins us for a deep dive into the many news items coming out of The Walt Disney Company. Plus, we share our own ideas for what kind of show should replace IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, and in another Mad Chatter game, we listen to one-star Yelp reviews and then try to guess the attraction, hotel, or restaurant for which each review was given. Come play along!

Be sure to find Mike online and let him know you enjoyed hearing him on the show: https://twitter.com/mikebrassell

195: Mad Q Party

Our favorite Disney questionnaire is BACK! For this week’s Mad Q Party, friend of the show Jonathan Harvill joins the discussion as we answer ten questions related to all things Disney. Some of this week’s questions include:

  • What’s a panel you’d like to see take place at next year’s D23 Expo?
  • Name something from a Disney movie that you wish were real so you could own it or use it.

And more!

Also on episode 195, Jeremy and Jonathan go head to head in the game “The Common Dis-nominator,” in which they must figure out what a list of clues have in common. Plus, we get a bit silly with the hashtag #BoringDisneyAttractions. Come join the madness!

Be sure to find Jonathan online (@jonathanharvill) and let him know how much you enjoyed hearing him on the show!
