86: Countdown to Parkstinction – Millennium Celebration (1999-2001)

This week we board our Time Rovers once again to travel back to the past, and this time our destination is the Millennium Celebration that overtook Epcot from October 1, 1999 to January 1, 2001. We reminisce about the Mickey wand on Spaceship Earth, the construction of Leave a Legacy, the World Showcase parade “Tapestry of Nations,” Millennium Village, and much more.

In the latest round of “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” we discuss the best and worst restrooms at Walt Disney World. Plus, the segment Take Five returns as we use just five words to describe categories such as the future Hall of Presidents and the arrival of FastPass+ in Disneyland. It’s all happening now on episode 86 of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

78: On the Scene With First-Timers

This week we sat down with a few of our listeners who recently visited Walt Disney World for the first time, their minds full of the facts, tips, and recommendations they had heard on our show, and we talked to them about the parts that lived up to their expectations and the elements that surprised them most. While Brittany told us about her extensive planning and when it did and didn’t pay off, Dustin and Emily gave us their take on whether or not nine hours in Magic Kingdom is enough to get a real taste of Disney magic.

In a week full of curious news and crazy rumors, we also discuss some of the topics that had the Disney Twitterverse abuzz, including a fire in Animal Kingdom, a 3-hour event with a $150 price tag, and an overlay for Tower of Terror. Plus, in “Armchair Imagineering” we set our sights on Easter, and in the game “Disney Hashtags” we talk about #LiesDisneyToldMe. The ridiculousness awaits on the latest episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

54: Star Wars Land and the Future of Disney Parks

Once again, the Disney Twitterverse has been up in arms as of late. During the past week, two specific news items have gotten our favorite Disney Tweeters talking: an increase in Annual Pass prices and big changes coming to Disneyland’s Rivers of America (thanks to Star Wars Land). On this week’s show, we chat about these announcements and what they mean for the future of Disneyland and Walt Disney World. How much is too much for entrance into Walt Disney World? What parts of the parks are too sacred to be touched by incoming franchises?

In a round of personal stories, we each share about a time in a Disney park that made us ask, “Did that just happen?” Plus, we answer a listener’s question about making the most of FastPass+. All that and more awaits you on episode 54 of The Mad Chatters Podcast!
