213: Mickey’s Celebration, Festival of the Arts, Kingdom Hearts, and More

In this bonus episode of the podcast (look for a brand new full episode next week!), we take a closer look at the new Disney offerings that debuted in January of this year. First, we give our take on Mickey and Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Magic Kingdom, as well as “An Incredible Celebration” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In special editions of “Munchies and Merch” and “Armchair Imagineering,” we talk about the new treats and souvenirs we have our eyes on, plus we come up with ideas for a Pixar character meal at Walt Disney World.

Also on show 213, we discuss why we are so excited to attend this year’s Festival of the Arts at Epcot, and we create a Mad Chatters Playlist featuring some of our favorite tunes from Disney Theatrical productions. Plus, friend of the show Zach clues us in on Kingdom Hearts III, what to expect from the brand new video game, and why Disney fans might want to dive in to the Kingdom Hearts series if they have not already. All that and more awaits you on this episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

197: A Star Is Born – 11 Times Alan Menken Made Disney Magic

Back in 1989, composer Alan Menken made his Disney debut with the majestic score and the memorable songs featured in The Little Mermaid. The film not only launched the famous Disney Renaissance of the 1990s, but it also marked the start of a beautiful partnership between Disney and Menken, who ended up creating music for classics such as Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, and more.

On this week’s show we take a closer look at 11 Disney projects for which Menken provided the music, and we share our picks for the most essential Menken tunes.

Also on this week’s episode, we highlight the good, bad, and ugly interiors of quick service restaurants at Walt Disney World. Check it out on show 197!
