201: The Many Signs of Magic Kingdom

Come take a stroll with us! This week we’re taking a virtual tour of the Magic Kingdom in order to take a closer look at the signage scattered throughout. Join us and special guest Marshal Knight as we discuss the often overlooked attraction signs, restaurant signs, directional signs, and more that can be seen in every land at the Magic Kingdom. As we chat about our favorite signage throughout the park, we shed light on why the magic really is in the details!

Also on show 201, we create a Mad Chatters Playlist featuring our favorite “Weird Disney Songs.” Plus, we predict a few headlines that might be big news items “In the Year 2071.” Tune in now!

146: Magic Kingdom and Disneyland – What’s the Difference?

Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, It’s A Small World – Many of the classic attractions for which Disney parks are known can be found on both U.S. coasts. The assumption, therefore, is that Magic Kingdom is simply a replica of Disneyland. In reality, though, the two parks are different in many ways. On this week’s show, special guest Jeff Birou (@jetsetterjeff) helps us take a closer look at these two parks and highlight the attractions, food, and landscapes that make each of them unique.

Also on this week’s show, we look ahead to the D23 Expo and discuss the panels that sound most interesting to us. Plus, we play the 20 Questions-style game “Where in WDW Am I?” Play along and join the fun 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!

It’s a small world filled with grim, grinning ghosts. But hey, there’s a great big beautiful tomorrow, so put on your Sunday clothes, queue up The Mad Chatters Podcast, and drink up, me ‘earties. Yo ho!

This week we take a musical tour of Magic Kingdom to discover the background loops that play in the park’s six themed lands, as well as the many original songs written for Disney attractions. We discuss our favorite tunes, dig into their backgrounds and authors, and talk about why music is such an integral part of Walt Disney World.

In “It’s the Small Things, After All,” we each share a hidden gem or often under-appreciated aspect of the Disney universe that we love. Plus, we introduce the hashtag #MisheardDisneyLyrics. Come join the fun now!

79: Second Impressions and Beyond

What Disney rides, shows, and other experiences have grown on you over time? That’s the topic up for discussion on this week’s episode. We talk about not only the attractions we’ve come to love, but also the ones we’ve “cooled on” as we’ve come to realize nothing will ever match that first impression.

Also on this week’s show, we turn our attention to attraction facades and share our picks for the good, the bad, and the ugly. Plus, Disney debates return in the segment “You Be the Judge.” Topics include iconic Disney snacks, the return of extinct attractions, and Liberty Square versus New Orleans Square.
