28: Live-Action Disney Films: Passing Trend or Winning Model?

With Cinderella in theaters and films like The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and Mulan on the docket, live-action remakes seem to be Disney’s latest obsession. Is it working? Is it necessary? This week we discuss the live-action remakes, both past and future, and what we think about them. We even do a bit of armchair casting and talk about who we’d like to see in the upcoming Winnie the Pooh movie.

To kick off the episode, we review Be Our Guest Restaurant and talk about a few hidden gems at the parks.

19: Countdown to Parkstinction – Magic Kingdom in 1971

This week we hop aboard our Time Rover and travel back to 1971 and the opening days of Walt Disney World. Join us for a virtual tour of Magic Kingdom and the surrounding area as we take in the sights, smells, and entertainment, as experienced by the park’s very first guests.

Also on this week’s episode, we discuss more hidden gems in another round of “It’s the Small Things After All,” and we play a new game, “Take Five,” in which we use just five words to describe various aspects of the parks.

This week it’s equal parts history and fun on The Mad Chatters Podcast!
