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!

127: 60 Must-Eat Foods at WDW (According to Travel + Leisure)

Travel + Leisure recently posted an article called “60 Foods Everyone Should Try At Least Once When Visiting [Walt] Disney World.” On this week’s show, we break down the 60 food items chosen by the author and discuss what makes Disney food so iconic and blog-worthy.

Keeping with the food theme, we kick off the month of March with our very own Munch Madness tournament, an epic battle of the best restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort. In Round 1, we narrow down the playing field to 32 restaurants. Then, we open up the voting to you, the listener, as we ask you to visit our Munch Madness page and place your votes for your favorite dining experiences in Walt Disney World. Each week we’ll eliminate half of the remaining restaurants until only one winner remains.

In The Disney Fix, we discuss Newsies on the big screen, Disney’s big night at the Oscars, and huge changes coming to Coronado Springs and Caribbean Beach resorts. All that and more awaits you on this week’s episode!
