Avast Ye Scurvy Scum!

Episode 8: Front vs. Back: The Ultimate Showdown

Ladies and Gentleman, Let's Get Ready to Ruuuuuuuuumble!!!!

This Episode we do something totally different and super fun; we have a proper, high school style debate team debate! Well, we're not sure if it is a debate, or, a boxing match, or, a case in the Court of Disney, or what! But we do know, this is a very serious topic and a very divisive issue.  

Laura argues for #TeamBack while Alison argues #TeamFront; Andrew plays moderator and tries to stay neutral.  Oh...and impressions!

Andy's Roundup brings Dante's Inferno alive with another tough, topical question as usual.  

Correction from Episode 7: Brad Rex was the Vice President of Epcot when Andrew was given the award, not the President.  

Ding, Ding!

Episode 7: Costuming and The Disney Look

We have been dishing out a lot of history and research-based episodes lately so we decided to chill out a little with a fun conversation on Costumes and The Disney Look.

Laura provides the background and details on what exactly is "The Disney Look" and we all share descriptions of the costumes we wore when we worked as Cast Members.  Follow us on Instagram for a photo journal throughout the week accompanying this episode and featuring some of the fun things we talked about! Who doesn't want to see how cute we were in our costumes?!

Don't forget Andy's Roundup :)

Everybody neat and pretty? Then on with the show!

*Quick pre-correction, it seems as if The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic has not ended completely, but switched to a much less frequent schedule of performances.  We really Baloo this.

Episode 6: All Aboard WDW Steam Trains

Choo Choo! Welcome to Episode 6 in which we discuss the many trains all around WDW property and the enormous influence Walt Disney's lifelong love of trains had on so many things in the Disney Universe!

Alison describes the presence of Steam Trains in Classic Walt Disney Animation and provides all of us with a crash course in Steam Engine Wheel Arrangements.  Later, she points out some of the Steam Trains on property you might not have noticed are Steam Trains or "Steam-Like" Trains as we come to find out...

Laura discusses some super-interesting history of Walt Disney's life which, pretty much, revolved around Steam Trains.  She then leads us into the crown jewel of our episode: the Walt Disney World Railroad.

Andrew makes true Roger Broggie's out of us all as we play Imagineer Engineers in Andy's Roundup.

Allllllll Aboard! Let's Go!

Also includes a quick correction from Episode 5...
