Expect chat, news, hot tips, analysis, secrets, fan theories and lots of other gushing from two big kids about "the happiest totalitarian dictatorship on Earth" (says Universal Studios).

    #45 - Speeding Through The Tower Of Terror

    #45 - Speeding Through The Tower Of Terror

    For a belated Halloween episode, Laurence & Lindsay watched Disney's 1997 TV movie The Tower Of Terror... so you don't have to! It's Disney's first ever movie based on one of its rides - and a bit of a slog, to be honest. However, there's still a lot of enjoyment to be found in the shonky script and story, as well as Disney's hilariously shameless use of one of its theme park attractions as a movie set. We won't make you sit through the whole thing with us, so here's a 45-minute highlight reel. As always, a high number of silly voices contained within.

    #43 - The Great Mouse Detective Audio Commentary

    #43 - The Great Mouse Detective Audio Commentary

    The next instalment in L&L's audio commentary adventures. This time, they delve deeply into one of Laurence's childhood favourites, the overlooked and underrated 1986 Disney classic The Great Mouse Detective. Lots of facts, lots of factually questionable waffle, and a frankly staggering number of Vincent Price impressions. Consider yourself warned.

Need more episodes!

Love the podcast, maybe could do some on Disney + series out on the park?

Please make more!

I’ve gone back to listening to these during lockdown and I’m really enjoying them!

The audio recorded on site is a great way to feel back in the parks and remember everything I did there too.

I’ve never been to the Asian parks but listening to your episodes on them makes me even more excited for travel to return to normal.

I really enjoyed your top ten memories episode and I really hope you make more!

Can definitely recommend for Disney nostalgia, interesting insights (you can tell Laurence has a music background - so much I wasn’t aware of about the parks’ and rides’ soundtracks!) and armchair travelling!

Funny, entertaining Disney Podcast!

Only started listening yesterday but I’m obsessed! Love the British humour mixed with the commentary. Great way to immerse yourself in the parks whilst we are currently unable to visit!
