Episode #46: 50th Anniversary Celebration: Part 2

As we talked about in our last episode, there have been quite a number of changes to the attractions at Walt Disney World over the last half century. And yes, that is an understatement of epic proportions! But as any fan of Walt Disney World knows, the attractions are only part of the story. There are so many tools that the Imagineers have at their disposal to bring these worlds of fantasy to life, and tonight, we thought we would reflect on some of our favorites. So sit back, relax and join us, as we look back on our favorite technological milestones of Walt Disney World’s first 50 years!

Episode #45: 50th Anniversary Celebration: Part 1

50 years. 50 years of imagination, 50 years of innovation, and of course, 50 years of magic. As we kick off this grand golden anniversary celebration, we thought it would be fun to reflect on Walt Disney World’s first half-century, and to talk about our favorite milestone moments from the past five decades. Those moments that, for us, truly embody that Disney magic, and changed forever our visions of what could be. So sit back, relax and join us, as we look back on 50 years of Walt Disney World Magic!

Episode #44: Our Disney “What Ifs”

As Dr. Nigel Channing tells us on Journey Into Imagination With Figment, “…as you can plainly see, imagination works the best when it’s set free.” One of the best ways to get your imagination soaring is to ask yourself “what if.” What if we could do things differently? What if there was a way to turn this dream into a reality? It’s a fun question to explore, and Marvel fans everywhere are getting the chance to do just that in the new Disney+ series “What If?” But don’t worry, no spoilers in this show. Instead, we’re going to explore our own hypothetical scenarios, Disney style of course. So settle back, relax, and join us, as we explore the world of Disney “What If?”

Episode #43: Our Dream Cast Member Jobs

One of the things we love the most about Walt Disney World is how the Cast Members are empowered to create magic. Whether it’s a friendly greeting, the unexpected gift of a free sticker, or even replacing that balloon you lost on Main Street U.S.A., they’re always ready to go that extra mile. And let’s not forget that the very phrase “Cast Member” was created to emphasize the concept that they are ‘on stage,’ and are just as integral to the magic of the parks as the attractions themselves. Who among us hasn’t wondered what it would be like to put on that name tag and to have the opportunity to spread our own Disney Pixie Dust? Well in this episode, we’re going to do just that, as we talk about: Our Dream Cast Member Jobs!

Episode #42: Shopping at Walt Disney World

Attractions may be number one on that Disney to-do list, and dining a close second (or first depending on who you are), but visiting the shops in Walt Disney World can be just as magical as riding your favorite attraction or visiting a new restaurant. As we all know, shopping at Disney is much more than just an opportunity to pick up souvenirs. Exploring all the unique items and endless details in your favorite store, or casually window shopping along your favorite thoroughfare, can be just as much fun as picking out that perfect pair of Mickey Ears. So put on your shopping shoes and get your souvenir list ready as we head off to explore the shops at Walt Disney World!

Episode #41: Going Back in Time – Disney Style

Have you ever wished you could go back in time? What would it be like to experience those early years of Walt Disney World, or even Disneyland? What if you could relive that special moment when you first saw Cinderella Castle, or took that first ride on your favorite classic attraction? And how cool would it be to experience a long-gone attraction that you never got the chance to see? In this episode, we’re going to jump into our Wayback machines, navigate that quantum realm, and take you on a journey through time to relive some of your favorite long-gone attractions and Disney experiences!

Episode #40: Magic Beyond the Attractions

One of the things that makes Walt Disney World so magical is that there is SO much to do. Attractions? Of course, but that’s only the beginning! There’s so much to discover here that you could go for days without riding a single attraction – yet still have a magical time. In this episode, we’re going to talk about some of our favorite “other” activities, and perhaps you’ll hear something that YOU’LL want to try on your next visit. So settle back, relax, and join us we talk about our favorite things to do beyond the attractions at Walt Disney World.

Episode #38: Our Favorite Disney Villains

As much as we root for the hero in our favorite films and shows, we all know that there’s a little tiny part of us that secretly, or not so secretly, cheers for the villain. In recent years, the role of the villain has often been blurred. Sometimes we get a glimpse into what makes them so angry. Sometimes we see that they’re just misunderstood. And yes, sometimes we just love them. Why? Well, that’s a question that we’re going to try and explore. In this episode, in honor of Cruella, Loki, and all of the new villains coming to screens large and small, we’re going to share with you some of our favorite (and yes, most feared) Disney villains!

Episode #32: Busting Those Disney Myths

A big part of the fun of being a Disney fan is in discovering all of those fun-filled factoids. But like so many other legends, stories sometimes change over time. Perhaps it’s the case of a few different tales being mixed together, or a tall tale that’s repeated so often that it becomes believable.

But never fear, in this episode, we’re going to uncover the truth behind some of our favorites…!

This is a place where we can journey to galaxies far far away, explore the far corners of the globe, and yes, even become a pirate or a princess.
