36: Top 5 Attractions in Need of Refurbishment

Refurbishment, change, an overhaul, TLC… Whatever you want to call it, some attractions need a bit of love. This week we count down the five attractions at Walt Disney World that need the most attention. We don’t want to see them go; we just want them to reach their potential.

On the subject of refurbishments, we discuss the recent changes that were made to The Great Movie Ride, including a new pre-show and a new finale montage. Also in the news, we talk about Orange Bird’s triumphant return and whether or not Tomorrowland‘s box office is to blame for Tron 3‘s demise.

In “Eating Around the World” we review Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge. Plus, we share our latest Disney obsessions in “The Disney Fix.” Come join the conversation!

29: Orange Bird and Figment: The Lesser-Known But Greatly-Beloved Characters of Walt Disney World

This week we do a deep dive into the histories of two original Walt Disney World characters: Adventureland’s Orange Bird and Figment from Epcot’s Journey Into Imagination. We talk about their significance and why they have stood the test of time.

In the latest news, Disney has announced plans for a live-action Pinocchio and a Haunted Mansion film. We chat about those projects, as well as some new announcements for Disneyland’s 60th anniversary. Plus, we swap funny stories in another round of “Did That Just Happen?” A bit of history, a whole lot of fun, and perhaps a little spark of inspiration await you on this episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast.
