Episode 54: Space Mountain

Welcome to Disney Philharpodcast.  We’re now entering one of the real wonders of our world: Space Mountain. Blast off on a high-speed outer space adventure, and careen through the cosmos! There'll be movie quotes and songs, horror stories from working Epcot Strollers, ALISON'S FAVORITE RIDE, and even more attempts to hand out individually wrapped Swedish Fish at the end of rides.  Also: why doesn't Chips Ahoy already sponsor this attraction??

Tip: If you love Troop Beverly Hills, stick around after we say "Bye" for a tangent we had to cut out :)

Episode 53: Show About Nothing Vol. 2

Well, not much to say here except: it's a show about nothing! We have a few news stories to discuss and about three roundups (most of which really go WAY off the rails).  Basically, if you like Nic Cage, Swedish Fish, you pronounce Mario as "Marry-O", then we think you will really like this episode.  Just imagine being dropped in the middle of a bizarre conversation between three weirdos--yes, so just like any other episode.

Episode 52: Enchanted Tiki Room

Ladies and Gentlemen, come with us to a world of joyous songs and wondrous miracles—Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. Our siestas are getting are getting chorter and chorter. But not our episodes...those are getting longer and longer! Come join us for a Touch of Mark, even more attempts at 90's movie quotes, (it's kind of our thing, now) some luxurious plumage, a Grade A Beef with Under New Management and more tiki and bird puns than you might expect.  
During this episode, our ‘ohana shares laughter, stories, memories of some of our dead pets, Co-Ed Naked Tiki-ing, and we try to remember the words to the junkyard song from The Brave Little Toaster (I was in the Indy 500). And nothing brings out some of our favorite childhood memories like the purple smooze from the My Little Pony movie! So from our ‘ohana to yours, we invite you to enjoy this episode of the Philharpodcast with all our greatest hits: Hacienda Colorado, Almond Joy's Got Nuts, "Like a Dolllllls Eye", and of course we can't forget: "He Ain't Closing ME DOWN!" Aloha!

Episode 51: The Universe of Energy Pavilion

Good afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen. Our names are Alison, Laura, and Andrew and on behalf of Exxon and Disney Philharpodcast, we would like to welcome you to the Universe of Energy. 

Our main show will begin approximately four days late because the airline lost Alison's baggage over the weekend. In this episode, we invite you to enjoy a unique discussion about the many facets of the Universe of Energy, which will be presented in an almost incoherent fashion as we gush over the 100 most beautiful rotating screens you have ever seen, Fern Gully, astronaut diapers, and Ellen's aggressive collared shirt.    

*For your own safety, we warn you there are multiple drug references in this episode, a crazy person drinking FourLoko, the most bizarre 90's movie references you have ever heard and ask those of you not willing to hear 17 A League of their Own quotes to stand and remain standing throughout the entire pre-show (pretend you are in the Canada circle vision, no leaning!)  The laser lights will be dimming and there will be guests continuing to enter the theater who may not see those of you seated on the floor, because, I mean, who doesn't love sitting on the floor in long, dark attractions? 

At the conclusion of this presentation, you will be questioning what might be wrong with these people and how you have suffered through this nonsense for approximately an hour and fifty-three minutes. 

Thank you.

Episode 50: The 25th Anniversary Celebration

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, today we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Disney Philarpodcast. In honor of our past episodes, and in grateful appreciation to those of you who have listened to our show so many times, we proudly dedicate this, our 50th Anniversary Episode, to you as we discuss ALISON'S FAVORITE: The 25th Anniversary Celebration. Today, for the first time in our history, we sing one song nearly 1000 times and will spend a long time talking about the live action 101 Dalmatians starring Glenn Close, looking up new words on Urban Dictionary, saying Balzac, like, A LOT, and maybe even a quick drop-by from Marge! Now come with us, ladies and gentleman, and Remember the Magic. Come meet the girl who is the Trap Queen, the boy from Long Island who was awarded the Presidential Medal in gym class, and the larger-than-life demon with abs of steel. Come celebrate again, all the wonder and joy, the laughter and delight, that is so much a part of our tradition, here at Disney Philharpodcast. Come with us!

Episode 49: Dumbo (1941)

Ladies and gentlemen! We will now present for your entertainment the most stupendous, magnificent, super-colossal spectacle! On this tiny, little, insignificant podcast, we will construct for you an episode about Alison's favorite Disney movie! Not of wood, not of stone, but of facts we should already know, of D23 announcements, of singing and It's Always Sunny jokes! A pyramid of ponderous, pulsating, pulchritudinous Disney-obsessed former cast members! I give you Disney Philharpodcast!

Episode 48: The Mexico Pavilion

¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to our Mexico Pavilion episode which includes all of Disney Philharpodcast's greatest hits: this is Alison's favorite pavilion in World Showcase, Mouth Sounds tries out some new homemade instruments, Laura sings, and naturally, we learn a whole lot of things we should already know.
Please excuse our poor pronunciation of any and all Spanish words--despite the fact there are close to 30 years of Spanish classes between us!
