Episode 24:Fun with Audio Animatronics

Have you noticed, in WDW, you're actually surrounded by robots?? Well, in Disney World, they're affectionately known as "Audio Animatronics", and they have been responsible for entertaining park visitors every day since the opening of Disneyland in 1955.  There are so many AA's in WDW, in fact, it would be easier to list the attractions which do NOT contain one of these talking/singing/dancing/joke-telling little characters.

So join us as we get down to the wires of these little (and some very big) robots. Laura will discuss the history and inner-workings of AA's and Alison reminds everyone of some of the most memorable AA's around WDW.

Also, during this episode, we host the 1st Annual Disney Philharpoddies, a very special award presentation for some very special robots.

Episode 23: Muppets Vol. 1

It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights!
It's time to meet the Muppets on Volume 1 of our Muppets Series tonight!

Please enjoy this first installment of what we hope to make a multi-volume tribute to the bears and dogs and chickens and things we know and love as Jim Henson's Muppets.  Now owned by Disney and with an increasing presence in WDW, we are happy we can use this podcast as an outlet to share our Muppet love with all of you!

In this episode, Laura gives a history of Jim Henson's career and creation of the Muppets and recounts their eventual acquisition by Disney.  Alison describes some WDW attractions in which you can currently find the Muppets, as well as some shows from the past and even some things from the "never-was".

*Please be advised this episode contains heavy Muppet impressions which may not be pleasing to people with ears.
