247: Top 10 Film Tie-Ins at Walt Disney World

The Disney theme parks have always been a place where guests can see their favorite films come to life. While not every in-park treatment of a film is wildly inventive or thematically appropriate, every once in a while a Disney park or resort gives life to a film in a way that wows and immerses guests, fits its surroundings perfectly, and does the movie justice. On this week’s episode we’re counting down the Top 10 Film Tie-Ins at Walt Disney World that, for us, do just that. From small props to full-blown stage productions, we have fun talking about our favorite ways in which movies were given new life at WDW. Come hear our picks!

Plus, we go on another trip inside our Time Rovers, this time traveling back to the ABC Super Soap Weekends of the late 90s and early 2000s. Join us as we check out what soap opera fans could experience at these popular events at Disney-MGM Studios.

Our guest this week is our friend and soap-opera expert Albert Gutierrez. Be sure to find him online and let him know you enjoyed hearing him on the show! Twitter: @Escapay | Instagram: @captainescapay | Blog: Alby Seeing You

119: Looking Ahead to 2017

If the end of the year is for looking back, then the beginning of a new year is a time for looking forward, and that’s exactly what we do on this week’s episode as we break down the biggest events, films, and coming attractions of 2017. What has us excited about movies like Coco and Star Wars: Episode VIII? What are we most looking forward to when Pandora: The World of Avatar opens this summer? We discuss all that and more.

In another round of “Behind the Magic,” we turn our focus to an attraction that deals heavily with the theme of looking forward with hope: Spaceship Earth. We share our favorite details and scenes from this classic Epcot attraction.

Plus, we take a comical gaze into the future and predict what Walt Disney World will look like “In the Year 2071,” and we discuss our New Year’s Disney resolutions for 2017. Come kick off the new year with the latest episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

23: Animated Films in the Parks: 1937-1949

One of the charms of Walt Disney World is its ability to bring the Disney animated films to life right before your eyes. This week we focus on the films of the 1930s and 40s and talk about their representation (or lack thereof) in the four parks. We discuss the surprising number of nods to The Three Caballeros, as well as the disappointing lack of Bambi references.

We also chat about the many exciting changes going on at Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, plus the beginning of the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot.

In another Mad Chatter game, Matt and Derek go head to head in “Magic Kingdom By the Numbers.” All this and more can be heard on episode 23 of The Mad Chatters Podcast.
