196: News, Rumors, and Coming Attractions

Now that 2018 is halfway over, we want to take a step back and look at where the Disney parks are and where they are headed. In this week’s show, we discuss some of the latest new offerings at Disney parks, including Toy Story Land and Pixar Pier, and we dive in to the latest news and rumors regarding upcoming attractions.

In honor of America’s Independence Day, we go “Behind the Magic” of one of the best patriotic attractions at Walt Disney World: The American Adventure in Epcot. Plus, we address a few questions from listeners concerning our favorite Disney sources and our recommendations for what to do at WDW when you’re flying solo. It’s all happening now on show 196!

144: Top 5 Worst Attractions Ever

No theme park is perfect. In its 45 years of bringing us magical moments, breathtaking environments, and technological breakthroughs, even Walt Disney World has stumbled once or twice. On this week’s show we count down our picks for the top five worst attractions Disney has ever given us, from boring shows to loud cars to rides that left us wondering what the Imagineers were thinking. (And yes, biases and personal experiences play a LARGE role.)

Also on this week’s show, to get in the 4th of July spirit we introduce the hashtag #AmericanizeDisney. Plus, we highlight the career of Disney legend Dorothea Redmond in another edition of “The Windows of Main Street, U.S.A.” Come join the conversation now!

78: On the Scene With First-Timers

This week we sat down with a few of our listeners who recently visited Walt Disney World for the first time, their minds full of the facts, tips, and recommendations they had heard on our show, and we talked to them about the parts that lived up to their expectations and the elements that surprised them most. While Brittany told us about her extensive planning and when it did and didn’t pay off, Dustin and Emily gave us their take on whether or not nine hours in Magic Kingdom is enough to get a real taste of Disney magic.

In a week full of curious news and crazy rumors, we also discuss some of the topics that had the Disney Twitterverse abuzz, including a fire in Animal Kingdom, a 3-hour event with a $150 price tag, and an overlay for Tower of Terror. Plus, in “Armchair Imagineering” we set our sights on Easter, and in the game “Disney Hashtags” we talk about #LiesDisneyToldMe. The ridiculousness awaits on the latest episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!
