236: The Sixth Annual Chatties

It’s time to pop the bubbly and roll out the red carpet as we honor 2019’s biggest moments: the highs and lows, the hits and misses, the surprises, the changes, and much more! Join us for the sixth annual Chatties, our special awards show that celebrates (and bemoans) the moments that most defined 2019. Special guest Marshal Knight helps us bestow honors on the Best Addition to Walt Disney World, the Biggest Surprise, the Weirdest Moment, and more. Help us ring in the new year with our 2019 wrap-up!

Also on this week’s show, we put together a Mad Chatters Playlist featuring our favorite songs and anthems that either debuted during the past year or in some way sum it up. Plus, we look ahead to 2020 by sharing some New Year’s resolutions we hope The Walt Disney Company will make for itself in the coming months.

We are so grateful for every single one of our listeners—for your support, your encouragement, your willingness to laugh with us, and your shared love of all things Disney. We don’t take the love for granted, and we’re so excited to bring you more content in 2020.

217: Disney’s Hollywood Studios: 30 Years, 30 Properties

Disney’s Hollywood Studios is turning 30! And if the new logo and the new parking signs are any indication, then characters from Frozen, Toy Story, and Star Wars are to be the official faces of the park, moving forward. But these are just the latest franchises to join the park’s deep well of past properties and characters, and on this week’s show we’re looking back at all of them! Join us and special guest Marshal Knight for a deep dive into 30 properties that have had a presence at Disney’s Hollywood Studios since the park first opened. Think of it as a DHS yearbook…

In another Mad Chatter game, we test our knowledge of which celebrities have handprints in front of the Chinese Theater, and which do not. Plus, Jeremy shares about a park scavenger hunt he hosted, and we discuss the latest Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge news.
