    It’s time to play the music, light the lights, and raise the curtain on our most celebrational, Muppetational episode ever! Join us and guest Jeff DePaoli as we look back at ten big moments the Muppets have had at Walt Disney World, from extinct attractions to long-lived shows to restaurants and more. And here’s a special bonus: This episode is one half of the very first Mad Chatters/Dizney Coast to Coast crossover event! Currently on Jeff’s podcast you can hear Jeff and Jeremy discuss in depth the TV special “The Muppets at Walt Disney World,” which aired on NBC on May 6, 1990, and which kicks off our list of 10 Muppetational Moments.
    The Muppet fun doesn’t stop there. Also joining us on this week’s show is biographer Brian Jay Jones, who shares highlights from his book “Jim Henson: The Biography” and talks to us about what it was like researching Jim’s life, reading his journals, and speaking to his family and friends. As we honor the 30th anniversary of Jim’s passing and celebrate the 65th birthday of Kermit the Frog, come soak in all the Muppety goodness now!

    242: 12 Quotes We Love About the Disney Parks

    What makes the Disney Parks so special? What's the reason so many of us are longing for the day when the parks can safely reopen? On this week's show we set out to answer those questions, but instead of expressing ourselves using our own words, we take a look at 12 quotes we love from men and women throughout history who also appreciated the magic of the Disney Parks. Come get sappy with us as we read what Walt and others had to say about the most magical places on earth and then look at those words through the lens of 2020.
    Also on this week's show, we think about the animals that are currently roaming Walt Disney World, and we share our picks for the good, bad, and ugly animal encounters. Plus, we bring back the segment "It's the Small Things After All," in which we each list the small details and experiences at WDW we'd LOVE to have in our lives right now. Tune in for one of our most sentimental episodes ever!

Love this

I’ve only recently found this podcast and I’m already half way thru. As a regular visitor to Disneyworld I love listening to podcasts about what I know and I am passionate about. I love Disney and I love Disneyworld and I just love that I’ve found a podcast that is funny I love the music and the subjects they talk about. I work in an office all day and it can be draining so I love to just pop on the podcast and have that little bit of Disney thru the day that is uplifting and just puts me at ease :)
