122: What the What? – Ten “What Were They Thinking?” Moments at WDW

Not every idea is a winner – not even at Disney. Unfortunately, some of those bad ideas still made it out of the drawing room and into Walt Disney World. From bad overlays to questionable themes to impractical designs, this week we count down the top ten moments that left us asking, “What were they thinking?!”

But first, we get sentimental as we pen some “Love Letters to Disney.” Plus, Matt and Derek review breakfast and dinner at Captain’s Grille in Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Come join the fun on another episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

105: Countdown to Parkstinction – WDW’s 25th Anniversary Celebration

With Walt Disney World turning 45 years old this weekend, we thought it would be fun to go back in time and take a look at one of Magic Kingdom’s biggest birthday celebrations of the past. As we discuss the park’s 25th anniversary, we take a closer look at the Remember the Magic Parade, Illuminations 25, and the infamous, love-it-or-hate-it Cakestle.

But first, we do a bit of Armchair Imagineering as we create our own ideas for how Walt Disney World and its guests should celebrate 45 years. Plus, we pen Love Letters to Disney. Strap in and hang on tight: this Time Rover is ready for departure!
