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!

138: The Lights of Walt Disney World

At last we see the lights, and it’s like the sky is new! On this week’s show, join us for a closer look at the best lamps, light bulbs, and spotlights throughout Walt Disney World. We go park by park, “highlighting” the best lighting techniques used by Imagineers to bring that special touch of magic to our favorite parks, from the fiberoptic lights below our feet to the popcorn lights that dangle above our heads.

In the new segment “The Windows of Main Street,” we showcase the contributions of those men and women whose names adorn the windows along Main Street. This week we place the focus on Walt’s older brother Roy. Plus, we play the game “Take Five” and share our thoughts on Magic Kingdom’s new fireworks show “Happily Ever After.” All that and more awaits you on show 138!

121: Putting the “Magic” in Magic Kingdom

What makes Magic Kingdom worthy of its name? Is it the rides? The smells? The Cast Members? The music? Is it a mixture of all of the above? Or is it different for every person?

On this week’s show we open up (read: gush) about what makes Magic Kingdom so “magical” to us. From single moments to breathtaking views to the smallest of details, we talk about what puts the “magic” in our favorite park.

In the latest news, we discuss the opening weekend of Epcot’s International Festival of the Arts, two new hard-ticket Star Wars events, and the brand new MaxPass at Disneyland. Plus, we put on our creative hats for another round of Armchair Imagineering, and we try to stump each other in the game “Where in WDW Am I?” All that and so much more awaits on this week’s episode!

103: The Music of Magic Kingdom

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!
