Episode 14: The Haunted Mansion

Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion. We are your hosts, your ghost hosts. Kindly press play when you are prepared to listen attentively, and make room for everyone.  There's no turning back now.

Laura tells some great stories about the attraction's inception beginning with Walt himself in Disneyland.

We discuss the ride as we know and love it in Walt Disney World and make plenty of tributes to the brilliant narration provided by X. Atencio.

And if you are not frightened prematurely, Laura & Andrew continue with a memorable review of a not-so memorable movie, The Haunted Mansion, starring Eddie Murphy, which receives a Disney Philharpodcast rating of 1.5 Roz's (you might actually be really frightened at this point). This also leads to an interesting Spooky Edition of Andy's Roundup.

Now, I will raise the safety bar, and a ghost will follow you home!

Episode 13: WDW Ghost Stories

Come join us around the Campfire (yes, the one at Fort Wilderness) as we tell some ghostly stories and tales of spookenings at Walt Disney World.

Hear the stories of WDW's happiest haunts including: George from the Pirates of the Caribbean, Robert and his balloon at the Contemporary, the Black Eyed Children at the TTC, and even one super scary haunt at Splash Mountain complete with confirmation by Alison and Laura.

Andy's Roundup gets a little morbid when we try to decide where in the World we would like our ashes scattered...

Alison's stories sources from the following book (10/10 recommend!)
Death in the Tragic Kingdom, by Keaton Moll

Episode 12: Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

This episode is somewhat unique, and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a maintenance service elevator...NO! It's a podcast! But, still, we invite you, if you dare, to press "PLAY" because this podcast travels directly to...The Twilight Zone.

Laura really outdoes her research skills here on this episode and provides you with all the scientific information you could ever imagine about this truly amazing Walt Disney World attraction.

Andy's Roundup asks us all to imagine WHAT, if anything, could provide for an acceptable overlay to our precious ToT...spoiler alert: Guardians of the Galaxy is not an acceptable answer...or overlay...ever.  :)

Episode 11: Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

It's Merry, Not So Scary! or... It's Really Not So Scary!
Choose your own lyrics, really!

In this guessed it...we are talking all about Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party; MNSSHP if you're fancy :)

This super fun ticketed event happens almost 30 nights a year during the Fall months.  Laura gives a little history of the parties and talks about the amazing stage show, Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular!  Alison describes the "Boo To  You" Parade (best ever) and gives her unpopular opinion on "Hallowishes", the special fireworks show.

Grab a shovel and your half-length cape and join us for this Not So Scary Episode!

Episode 10: WDW CreeeeeepyPasta

For October, we bring you a series of 5 super scary, super creepy, haunted episodes!

Kicking it off here we have a full plate of CreepyPasta for you! For those of you unfamiliar with the term CreepyPasta, it is just an internet term for "Scary Stories".  We found a few Disney World-themed scary stories going around the web and we take turns telling the spooooky stories for you here in this episode. So sit back, relax, turn off the lights, light a candle--not the Black Flame Candle though--and prepare to be served a heaping helping of CreepyPasta..."all you care to enjoy" as Mickey would say.

Please note: this episode is not for the littler mouseketeers as it features sensitive subjects and scary themes which may cause nightmares!!!
