Podcast Episode 88

We have a great show for you this week! We steal Dan from Annie & Danny's Fastpass Podcast and he joins us for a very rousing discussion about Pal Mickey, some real bizarre Frozen news, and then we spend a bulk of the episode discussing Hollywood Studios and the backlot tour including its past and future. We had so much fun this episode that we actually ran long in time. That's right, you get a bonus length episode this week! Seriously, listen to this episode. It is so damn good! As always, you can listen on the player there on the right, unless you're on the mobile page!

Dibs on the snow speeder!
Apparently they closed this ride 10 years ago, but nobody told anyone.

Bigger World Showcase Crimes Than Frozen

I'm sure we've all heard by now that our precious Maelstrom ride in Epcot is going the way of the Horizons to make room for a Frozen attraction. And now that its closing date has been announced, suddenly it's everyone's favorite ride. I'm not here to tell you that you're wrong (you probably are) or that it wasn't that great of a ride (it really wasn't) or that characters don't belong in World Showcase (I don't see why not.) No, I'm not here to tell you any of that. What I am here to do is to point out that there are currently far bigger crimes against humanity lingering in World Showcase. We've allowed these abominations to linger here. Far more insulting than any Frozen attraction. Let's check out a few of these!

1. Italy. I mean, come on. This pavilion blows. I want to know how this pavilion planning session went:
"Okay, we have some Italian buildings! What else do we need?"
"Italy has pasta."
"Great! Get some pasta in there! What else?"
"Overpriced pasta!"
"Fantastic! Write that down! What else can we put in?"
"....."
"....."
"......"
"Alright. We'll call it a day."

Hope you like pasta and disappointment!
2. There's a frikkin' show building in Germany just sitting there with nothing in it. Although popular rumor is that it's being used for storage. I'm pretty sure that was not the purpose they intended when they built it. I will take a Frozen ride over an abandoned building any day of the week. Especially Tuesday!

"I feel so empty inside..."
3. The entire American Adventure pavilion besides the show. The show is wonderful. But everything outside of that theater is just bland, sanitized, boring, dull rubbish. When the Electric Umbrella across the pond is better than your sorry excuse for an American eatery, you should rethink some of your decisions. I don't like it, and if I'm not there for the show, I walk on by, covering my face so it doesn't recognize me.

'Murica!
4. The Outpost. Can we just put this glorified Coke stand out of its misery already? Especially since inside the Walt Disney World Resort, there's already a fantastic representation of Africa over at Animal Kingdom. Go to Harambe. Burn down the Outpost. It would be an improvement along the World Showcase promenade.
Don't make eye contact. Just keep walking.

5. ....Okay at the moment, I can't think of anything for number 5. But that still leaves a solid list of 4 other things that are worse than a quirky attraction that most people ride just because it's there and something to do being replaced by a Frozen attraction. I'm not going to miss the hospital-hallway queue.


Like waiting in line for a prostate exam.

Podcast Episode 87

Starting things off this week is Matt bringing something to the show that we have never heard of! And it's Disney! And we didn't expect that. Then we move right along into this week's biggest news: The Maelstrom. If you're reading this, you already know. But we have a very special surprise guest this week to help us discuss. Then Matt goes on ahead and completely ruins his own segment. We do some quick rounds of Fact or Bullshit and everybody's favorite: TripAdvisor Game of Shaaaaaame! Then our show gets completely hijacked during Listener Questions by another surprise guest, and we couldn't be happier! You'll enjoy this one, swabs!

Podcast Episode 86

We have a special guest this week! Josh from Modern Mouse Radio (If you haven't listened to it, you damn well better!) Come to find out, he fits right in with the Mutineers as we talk about the HUGE news coming out of DisneyQuest this week. Then we force Josh to answer questions about his show. We pretend like we're going to Lawn Chair Imagineer the Universe of Energy, and then we play a raucous round of Birnbaum's Blitz. Follow it up with some quick listener questions (we didn't get through the whole list. We'll do that next week) and that's how we wrap up a fantastic show! Tune in! Right now.

Boy howdy do we have quite the show for you this week! Seriously, this is a real good one. It's mind-numbingly good. First we discuss the news of new animals coming to Animal Kingdom. Then, find out what will be closing at Hollywood Studios, and what has already been closed! Then a whole slough of Star Wars rumors both on-screen and in-park! And if that wasn't enough, we have quite possibly the best (and hands-down the longest) Tim the Food Bitch that this show has ever seen! Let's see what the Food Bitch thinks about this year's Food and Wine offerings! Buckle up for this one, kiddos!
