Oh Look, An Announcement!

     Well, the time has come! About a month or so ago we announced on the Mickey Mutineers Podcast that we will be rebranding and slowly (emphasis on "slowly") rolling out our new title: MUTINEER DISASTER STUDIOS! Look, there's even a logo!

     So what does this mean?? I'll tell you. We love talking about Disney and dedicating so much of our creative outlet towards it. However, a couple years ago we started the side podcast, Mutineer Disaster Hour, for those weeks where either nothing major was going on with Disney, or we just wanted to talk about something else completely unrelated. As you can see from the name, the Mutineer Disaster Hour idea has completely expanded and now we're going to dedicate so much of our creative outlet to Disney, but also more!

     The weekly podcasts will remain the same in the same podcast feed you're using, so you don't have to worry about resubscribing to some other feed. You will still get mostly Mickey Mutineers shows and the occasional Mutineer Disaster Hour, just like you've been getting for years now. But now they will be labeled in the podcast feed more accordingly so you'll know exactly what show you're getting. On top of the regular shows, we also have some not-so-regularly scheduled side shows in the works. For example, Jake and Jordan will be doing a movie side show called, well, Movie Sideshow. And Dimitri and Wall will make their long-awaited podcast return with Dimitri and Wall's Flat Panel Fist Fight!

     And now for the bulk of the changes: Aside from the podcasts, the bulk of the changes will be made at the Mutineer Disaster Studios YouTube channel, which can be found right here! (Which you should totally click that link and subscribe!) We're going to be doing a lot more dabbling in videos! The YouTube channel will be the hub of our new operations. We already record the podcasts there, so if you don't want to wait for the produced final audio product, you can hop over to the YouTube page and watch our awful livestreams! But on top of that, we are going to explore all sorts of other videos, from cooking (and/or drinking) videos, travel vlogs, musical stuff, and more! (Eventually there will even be a Dimitri and Wall cartoon! We're really going all in with Dimitri and Wall.)

    One of  the final changes will be this here website. We'll somehow archive all the past blog posts into a special section, and spruce up the main site more in line with the new Mutineer Disaster Studios. But that's still a little ways down the line. Mostly because I don't know how to do that yet. But the new web site will be a secondary hub that will point towards the YouTube channel and still have the embedded podcast player for easy access.

     We're very excited to be branching out like this and we're excited to take you all along with us! Whether you like it or not....*Awkward cough*.... So stay tuned to all our social media outlets and the podcasts, because we are going on an adventure!

Chicken Guy is a Smash in the Mouth!

By Josh
     As some may know I have spent some time in the last year in a small Caribbean country on the west side of Hispaniola.  I’m not going to talk about the politics or economics of Haiti, I am going to mention the food though.  I have had some of the best food ever in Haiti.  I am also fairly certain I ate a cat.  The cat came from a street vendor that those I work with call "the chicken lady."  But this isn’t her story. Hell, it has nothing to do with Haiti at all, that was just a setup for the review of The Chicken Guy restaurant at Disney Springs.

     The Chicken Guy is located in the bottom of the Planet Hollywood restaurant and is decorated with a chicken that highly resembles the dude from Smash Mouth.  The first thing that is notable about this restaurant is the prices.  Finally, a restaurant at Disney that doesn’t rob me for mediocre food. (Not saying this is mediocre. Other high priced shit is though. I’m looking at you Dino Bites.)  Side note to this...  The beer is priced the same as the sandwiches, but I guess if the beer was cheaper there, no one would buy beer anywhere else.

     The menu, my god (hail the Flying Spaghetti Monster, he boiled for your sins) the menu!  Hopefully Jake will put a picture of the menu here. (Editor's note: Don't tell me what the hell to do, Josh!) I am not going to list everything here, but I will note that a couple of the sauces such as the special sauce, spicy mustard, bleu cheese, and avocado crema all sound great!  FUCK, I AM STARVING NOW!  I could really go for that triple chocolate mint shake.  Ugh.  Stupid diet.

     After much debate, deliberation, and a short nap I ended up ordering the Loaded Fries.  It was a compromise between that or paying for a combo, honestly.  I have to say that it exceeded my expectations of what I was going to get from the Smash Mouth Chicken.  The sliced chicken strips were crispy and tasty AF, the bacon and green onions where a perfect addition, and the super melty cheese... holy shit!  That was great!  Oh, the fries!  I almost forgot the fries!  They where perfectly cooked and the seasoning was deep and complex.  

     In the end I have to say that I find the menu to be very well priced and interesting.  The opportunity to try the rest of the menu items is definitely exciting and I think that next I am going to try just the tenders with sauces, mostly to concentrate on the sauce.  My only complaint would be that there is a lack of beard cleaning wipes as this dish is not beard friendly and with that I feel that I am going to rate Chicken Guy a solid 4 out of 5 Dimitri's. Would do again.

Toy Story Land Review!

By Jake

     As many of you Disney fans or haters or Disney-Neutral people know by now, this past weekend Toy Story Land opened to reviews at Disney's Hollywood Studios park in Florida, America! Unfortunately none of the main five Mutineers were able to attend the event. However! Our producer, Giuseppe, was able to attend and slipped me a cocktail napkin with his notes on it and some pictures he claimed are completely his and totally didn't steal from somewhere else, and then buggered off on his own somewhere mumbling about hamsters in the wild. So without further ado (and apologies to those that were expecting a lot of ado from this point on) here is Giuseppe's review of Toy Story Land, completely fabricated by Jake.

It's a 7 hour wait because they only allow one person at a time
to ride.
     First up, let's talk about the rides! There are two new rides here and one that sneaked in through the side door. The sneaky one is Toy Story Mania, we've all heard about it. It's good. We all like it, don't we. It's one of the most fun rides in all of Toy Story Land. Moving on. One of the new rides is the Spinning Aliens of Death ride. Don't let the name mislead you, it's for families. It looks simple enough from the outside, but looks are very misleading! This happens to be one of the most fun rides in all of Toy Story Land! It's a contemporary take on a classic whip ride! Which means it whips you around corners, and if you're in the middle of the car, you are going to get smushed. A lot. But that's part of the fun! Lastly we have the Slinky Dog Dine and Dash roller coaster! But Giuseppe said he took one look at the 7-hour line (which stretched all the way from the roller coaster entrance down International Drive to SeaWorld) and decided he'd just watch it on YouTube. But he said it looked like one of the most fun rides in all of Toy Story Land!

See? These guys standing guard just stab you with pizza if you try to enter.
     Now onto the food. Giuseppe says there's food here. There are giant popsicle sticks, but no popsicles on them. But there's also a counter service restaurant called Woody's Breadbox. It's not very big. They have a unique selection of food, however. From the grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup, to the barbecue brisket sandwich with tomato soup, to the ice cream floats with tomato soup! But the big ticket item that has people talking are the pastries. Apparently they're just painted Pop-Tarts. I don't understand why people would be clamoring over pastries that taste like paint. But hey, I won't knock it until I try it.

     So that's all the notes that were on Giuseppe's napkin. I'm glad he was able to make it down there and give us the his full review of the new land. There's a doodle here of four pine cones. I guess that's his rating. So there you have it! Giuseppe gives Toy Story Land a whopping four pine cones!

Six Things I Wish I Was Eating Right Now (in the Magic Kingdom)

by Annie Clarf

 1. The All-American Sundae from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor

A post shared by S A R A H 💄 (@sarahbuckx) on

Ain’t she a beaut? Would you like chocolate ice cream or vanilla ice cream? Wait, nevermind, HAVE BOTH. Add some hot fudge. Add some flipping peanut butter drizzle. Throw some whipped cream on top, fling a cherry at it, and brother, you got a heckuva sundae. Mmmmm. I want it right now. 

 2. Salted Caramel Pretzel at the Lunching Pad

I believe it was 1945 when they built the Auntie Anne’s pretzels at the local mall and I, at primo mall-hanging age, discovered how delicious a pretzel was with some caramel dipping sauce. Later that year, I met Bob Iger at the mall and that’s how we find ourselves blessed with this caramel pretzel treat today. It comes with chocolate dipping sauce, but I think I’ll have it au natural, mon ami. Je le veux maintenant HAW HAW HAW! 

(Editor's note: This story is 100% accurate. Don't question it. DON'T. QUESTION IT.)

 3. All of this from Pecos Bill’s Tall Tale Inn and Cafe

I’m not sure exactly what I’m looking at here. I mean, I can pretty well figure it out but I kind of want to just shake all of that up, maybe add a little extra lettuce for roughage, and eat it with a fork until I slowly fall into the pleasant sleep of someone who’s just eaten way too much Mexican food. 

 4. French Vanilla Coffee Float with Soft-Serve from Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies

A post shared by JENNIFER (@jenniferkongg) on

Why doesn’t McDonald's do a coffee float like this? Dang! It looks so good! And then if you get one, you can take a photo in front of that sweet sign. You cannot lose, here. 

 5. Caprese Flatbread at Pinocchio Village Haus

A post shared by @jmar_nyc on

This is definitely the best quick service option in Magic Kingdom, if I may be so bold. Not only that, but the Village Haus is so cute and you can sit with a small world view! 

 6. Waffle Sandwiches form Sleepy Hollow

I want all of those. RIGHT. NOW. Do you think someday I will be able to 3D print those waffle sandwiches straight into my mouth? I bet the technology already exists but the government is keeping it from the public. It would be like the Napster of waffle sandwiches. 
(Editor's Note: You want Lars Ulrich to shut down your illegal waffle operation? Because that's how you get Lars Ulrich to shut down your illegal waffle operation!)

I hope you enjoyed this amazing journey through six things I would totally eat right now. Runner-up is the expensive bananas, much better than the cheap bananas you get from the grocery store. What would you eat right now from the Magic Kingdom?
