92 – The 25 Years Later Star Wars Special Editions Special
On this episode of Bobsleds and Banthas we uncover a host of news from around the Disneyland Resort including a private party you can have in Toon Town, changes to Downtown Disney and the upcoming investor call that probably doesn’t mean big changes at Disneyland. After that we talk about Star Wars Special Editions and memories of being a Star Wars fan before they came out… and ruined everything.
Entertaining and informative
I can’t believe the hosts haven’t been friends for 20 years. The easy banter between them really adds to the show. I am seriously now stressing over the actual temperature of Disneyland on opening day. I think you are purposely forgetting to ask your guests to keep me tuning in for the actual answer. So far it’s working great 😆
A Talespin of Magic and Memories!
Like the satisfying collapse of a Kenner Speeder Bike, listening to Aaron and Scott's Bobsleds and Banthas Podcast gives me that same feeling I had as a child when my older brother would let me play with his Star Wars toys. So validating listening to past shows, learning that my experience growing up with Disneyland, Star Wars, old Disney movies (Swiss Family Robinson, Journey of Natty Gann, etc), is a shared one. B&B is also a source for relevant Disney news! Both gents bring unique perspectives: storytelling, design, and joy of research and history. I appreciate the respect these gents have for family, and they appeal to folks of every life season. Whether you've dropped Star Wars quotes in real life conversations as a geek-litmus test, or have only dreamt about visiting the Happiest Place on Earth, this podcast will draw you in and make you feel like you're hanging out with the brothers you may (or may not) have had, or may (or may not) have broken the antenna on his Millennium Falcon (sorry, Daniel).
I love this podcast more and more every time I listen to a new episode. It’s a perfect balance of news, humor, and interesting discussions. I highly recommend this podcast whether you’re looking for some revenant Disney news or just need a pick me up. Scott and Aaron are energetic hosts.
