58: Animated Films in the Parks – The 2000s

Our search for signs of Disney films at Walt Disney World gets a bit harder this week as we venture into the 2000s. On this week’s show, we chat about films like Atlantis, Chicken Little, and The Emperor’s New Groove, discussing why they’ve been all but forgotten by Disney executives and fans alike. We also speculate about why movies like Lilo & Stitch and The Princess and the Frog have had such lasting power.

In “You Be the Judge,” we go head to head in a few friendly debates regarding topics such as nighttime spectaculars, disposable opening-day attractions, and shoddy audio-animatronics. Plus, we play a few rounds of “Take 5,” in which we use just five words to express our feelings about gourmet hot dogs, the PeopleMover, and more. Episode 58 of The Mad Chatters Podcast is now available for your listening pleasure!

37: Park Attendance and Ticket Prices

Disney blogs were all abuzz last week regarding two major headlines. The first involved the 2014 Theme Park Attendance Annual Report, and the second had to do with an official Disney survey that had been sent to select guests, proposing the idea for a tiered ticketing system. This week we dive headfirst into those topics and share our thoughts.

Also on show 37, Jeremy talks about his experience at the Walt Disney Hometown Museum in Marceline, Missouri. Hear about what you can find if you visit Walt’s childhood home today. Plus, join us for another round of Take Five. This week we sound off about categories like “Beauty and the Beast: Live on Stage” and those pesky birds in Frontierland, using only five words.
