261: The Future of Disney Vacations

Will Walt Disney World ever see a nighttime parade again? Will Disney Genie+ be embraced by guests as a worthy replacement for FastPass? How much longer will we have to wait for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind?

On this episode we take a broader look at Walt Disney World to talk about which areas of the parks have not yet gone back to the way they were before the resort closed in 2020—and whether or not we think they ever will. Tune in as we share our thoughts on Genie+, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, the future of daytime entertainment, and more (33:01)!

As we continue to count down to the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, we shine a spotlight on the opening-day attraction The Hall of Presidents and share a list of ten facts about the classic show (2:44). Plus, we put on our poets’ hats with another edition of MADsterpiece Theater (30:28). Come join the fun!

199: The Magic of Audio-Animatronics: From the Dancing Man to the Shaman

Audio-animatronics have been a staple of Disney parks for over five decades. But what many guests might not realize is that “Audio-Animatronics” is a registered trademark because Walt Disney and his team of Imagineers were actually responsible for inventing the technology! On this week’s show we trace the history of audio-animatronics, stopping along the way to discuss some of the biggest milestones and our personal favorite audio-animatronics, including Abraham Lincoln, the Tiki Room birds, Hopper, and much more.

Also on this week’s episode, Jeremy and Matt discuss their recent adventures in Walt Disney World and share their thoughts on the World of Disney’s new look, Toy Story Land, and more. Plus, we play another round of Take 5 by sharing our thoughts on various Disney topics using only five words. Tune in now!

110: Liberty Square and the Hall of Fictional Presidents

As election season kicks into high gear in the U.S., we’re putting the spotlight on the land in Magic Kingdom dedicated to all things America: Liberty Square. This week we go “Behind the Magic” to highlight attractions like the Liberty Square Riverboat, eateries such as Columbia Harbour House, and the details and hidden gems that make this land worth visiting. Then, we put on our Imagineer hats and imagine what the Hall of Presidents might look like if it featured the best fictional presidents from pop culture.

Also on this week’s show, we discuss Magic Kingdom’s newest nighttime spectacular, hear about each other’s latest Disney Fix, and play a round of “Where in WDW Am I?” Episode 110 is online now!
