167: Glimmering, Shimmering, Carouselling – 46 Years of Magic Kingdom Parades

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – The Mad Chatters proudly present our spectacular(ish) deep dive into Magic Kingdom’s many festival pageants of magic and imagination over the last 46 years. On this week’s show, special guest Aaron Wallace of Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Pod joins us for a detailed look at the parades, street parties, and cavalcades that have traveled down Main Street, U.S.A. since Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, from the grand opening parade to the most current spectacle, Festival of Fantasy. Come with us on a trip down memory lane as we discuss our favorite parade moments, floats, and soundtracks of the last 4-plus decades.

Also on episode 167, we share our picks for the good, bad, and ugly attraction loading areas at Walt Disney World. Plus, we each share one of our favorite hidden gems in the segment “It’s the Small Things, After All.” Tune in now!
