252: It’s Good to Be Bad – The Best Disney Villains Onscreen and at Walt Disney World

They’re rascals and scoundrels. They’re villains and knaves. They’re devils and black sheep. They’re really bad eggs. They’re the infamous crew of misfits and evildoers known as the DISNEY VILLAINS! On this week’s show, guest Marshal Knight helps us take a closer look at the deep well of villains in Disney’s catalog, from the Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to the can-you-believe-they’re-actually-the-villains of so many of the Disney films of the 2010s. On this episode we discuss what makes a great Disney villain, how the Disney villain has evolved over time, which Disney villains get the best representation at Walt Disney World, and which villainous moments at Walt Disney World are our favorites.

Plus, Marshal and Derek compete in a villain-themed game, and in another edition of “The Windows of Main Street, U.S.A.” we put the spotlight on Imagineer Yale Gracey, who contributed special effects to both Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. Come join the villainous fun now!

Warm up some cider, light a candle or two, and get ready for some ghostly fun. As our friends in Halloween Town say… This is Halloween!

57: Mad Q Party: Halloween Edition

Our favorite hypothetical extravaganza is back, and this time it’s all things Halloween. We try to plus Halloween Time at Walt Disney World by answering questions like, “If you could hide somewhere in Walt Disney World and scare people, where would you do it?” and, “If you had to add a fall or Halloween ‘twist’ to a classic Disney snack, what would you do?”

In the segment Munchies and Merch, we each share about a fall snack and a spooky piece of merchandise we’d like to get our hands on, and in another Mad Chatter game, Matt and Derek try to match movie quotes with the villains who said them. Plus, the latest news includes a Tower of Terror film and some interesting gourmet hot dogs at Grand Floridian Resort. Lots of creepy fun awaits you on episode 57 of The Mad Chatters Podcast!
