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!

Our Mad Chatter Game Night includes Disneyfied versions of Password, Outburst, $100,000 Pyramid, and Match Game, as well as a challenging round of “Also a Disney Character,” in which we guess the Disney character based on the definition of his or her name. Here’s the best part: You can play along! Come join the fun now!

Thanks to guests Aaron Wallace, Jeff DePaoli, Ben Lancaster, Mark Willard, Brittany Maddox, and Teri Deel for helping us make this episode possible. If you’re not already following these awesome individuals online, what are you waiting for?

109: Mad Chatter Spooktacular

It’s Halloween-loween, everybody! (Let out a scream!) This week we’re getting in the Halloween spirit by putting spooky twists on some of our favorite Mad Chatter segments, including Armchair Imagineering, Disney Hashtags, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Our discussions take us everywhere from the fall decorations and merchandise at Walt Disney World to the hidden gems and magical details inside Haunted Mansion to the moments in Disney films that really bring a chill. Warm up some cider, light a candle or two, and get ready for some ghostly fun. As our friends in Halloween Town say… This is Halloween!

We’d love for you to connect with us online. Come find us on Instagram (@madchatters), Twitter (@MadChatters), and Facebook (@madchatterspodcast). Or you can email us at comments@madchatters.net. Thanks for listening!

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.
