227: The Signs of Epcot

Join us for a virtual stroll around Epcot as we take a closer look at the many signs throughout the park. Attraction signs, restaurant signs, directional signs—they’re all up for grabs as guest Marshal Knight helps us break down the best and worst signage in Future World and World Showcase, from our favorite fonts to the best designs to the most questionable shape choices.

In another Mad Chatter Top Ten, we celebrate the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary by listing ten facts we love about the classic attraction. Plus, we preview the D23 Expo and we share some Disney Confessions. Come join the fun!

Be sure to find Marshal on Twitter and Instagram and let him know you enjoyed hearing him on the show!

148: Fantasmic! Celebrating 25 Years of Mysteries, Magic, and Visions Fantastic

Dreams are make believe . . . But could they all come true? To discover the answer to that question, we’re going deep inside Mickey’s imagination, where we’ll encounter princesses, a fire-breathing dragon, and all the forces of evil, all while searching for the true reason Fantasmic has been such a popular show since it debuted in Disneyland 25 years ago. Celebrate this epic nighttime spectacular with us as we dive deep into the show’s history, its changes over the years, and what the future might hold.

Also on this week’s show, we look more closely at some of D23 Expo’s biggest announcements and toss in our own ideas for how to plus them. Plus, in another round of the Mad Chatter Top Ten, we present the Top Ten Uses for the Great Movie Ride Audio-Animatronics After the Ride Has Closed.

We now invite you to join Mickey and experience Fantasmic!—a journey beyond your wildest imagination.

122: What the What? – Ten “What Were They Thinking?” Moments at WDW

Not every idea is a winner – not even at Disney. Unfortunately, some of those bad ideas still made it out of the drawing room and into Walt Disney World. From bad overlays to questionable themes to impractical designs, this week we count down the top ten moments that left us asking, “What were they thinking?!”

But first, we get sentimental as we pen some “Love Letters to Disney.” Plus, Matt and Derek review breakfast and dinner at Captain’s Grille in Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Come join the fun on another episode of The Mad Chatters Podcast!

This week we continue our “Do This, Not That” series, in which we share our tips for what can’t be missed at Walt Disney World . . . and what can be skipped if pressed for time.

In another Mad Chatter Top 10, we count down the Top 10 Signs You’re at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2016. Plus, we discuss the latest round of closings at Disneyland, and in the Mad Chatter game, “In a World,” we guess the Disney film based on its horror-fied synopsis.
