235: Disney and the 2010s – From A to Z

Blockbuster franchises, immersive theme park expansions, revolutionary nighttime spectaculars, an all-access magic bracelet — the 2010s gave us all of these and more.

As we close out another decade, join us for this nostalgic journey through the most iconic news items of the 2010s!

113: Table Service at Magic Kingdom + Destination D: On the Scene!

It wouldn’t be The Mad Chatters Podcast if we didn’t talk about food, and our latest episode is no exception! This week we kick off a new series devoted to the table service restaurants throughout Walt Disney World. First up: Magic Kingdom. From hot tickets like Cinderella’s Royal Table to less sought-after eateries such as The Plaza Restaurant, we highlight the park’s eight table service options, discuss every menu, and provide our own reviews.

Also on this week’s show we’re joined by guest Guy Selga (@guyselga), blogger and researcher for touringplans.com, who takes us inside last weekend’s Destination D event at Walt Disney World. We hear about Guy’s favorite panels and get the scoop on the biggest news that was announced over the long weekend.

Speaking of news, we break down all of the latest announcements from The Walt Disney Company, including a new Cars 3 teaser, huge changes for Hong Kong Disneyland, a brand new festival coming to Epcot, and much more! It all goes down on the latest episode. Tune in now!

77: Quick-Service Restaurants at Epcot

Come with us on a culinary tour of the quick-service dining options in Future World and World Showcase. On this week’s episode, we share the menu highlights of every casual dining location in Epcot and give our own thoughts about what’s worth trying and what should be avoided.

In “Take 5” we use just five words to share our feelings on topics like the new tiered ticketing system, FastPass+, and autograph books, and in “It’s the Small Things, After All” we dish on some of our favorite under-appreciated gems. Plus, latest news items include purple MagicBands, the online March Magic tournament, a new finale in It’s A Small World, and more.

31: MyMagic+ (Reinventing the Disney Vacation)

Does MyMagic+ work? Are MagicBands a success? Is this Next Generation experiment worth the cost?

These were some of the questions posed in a recent online article published by Fast Company magazine. On this week’s episode we break down the article and share our thoughts on Disney’s attempts to reinvent itself and revolutionize the vacation experience.

In another round of “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” we shine the spotlight on the western half of World Showcase, from Mexico to Italy, critiquing everything from the architecture to the merchandise. Plus, we respond to another listener email, this time answering questions about a Walt Disney World vacation for preteens.
