Don’t worry! You don’t have to get it before it goes back inside the vault, because we’re going Inside the Disney Vault. Your hosts Rachel Chapman, Clare Loughran and Oscar Montoya are venturing inside the Disney Vault each week to watch, discuss, criticize, and celebrate every Disney animated movie in chronological order. Come along on this journey as we go back and revisit some classics, forgotten treasures and some movies that should probably remain locked away.
Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior with Vic Michaelis
We're joined by actor and comedian Vic Michaelis (@vicmmic) and we meet Wendy, your average ordinary popular high schooler- until she learns she's the reincarnation of a mighty warrior who must train to save the world!

We find comedian and podcaster Tim Murray (@TMurray06) in the sweet old home on the range. Rich Girls Aly & AJ live the simple life of Dairy riches until one day their father goes on a butterfly hunt and insists it's time the girls get a job in the factory. A bunch of slimy splattery messes later, it's up to them to save the factory, which on the brink of shutting down after shady business by their "uncle."

High School Musical (2006) with Paul F. Tompkins
We Bop to the Top with real life Disney character and podcast paragon, Paul F. Tompkins (@PFTompkins)! An iconic episode for an iconic Romeo and Juliet tale. Troy and Gabriella simply want to Break Free and be in love with TWO extracurricular activities...and maybe also each other. We get to the bottom of what the high school musical is actually about, Ashley Tisdale's comedic genius, the timeline between auditions and callbacks, and the impeccable commitment Darbus brings to the MUSI-CAL!

Newsies (1992) with Nicole Parker
We seize the day with hilarious MadTV alum and real life Broadway Elphaba (!heardofit?), Nicole Parker (@NPRedford) to chat NEWSIES! We gleefully dissect old-timey newsboy accents, broadway tropes, and above all COMMITMENT. Who's going to see Medda's shows? Is Crutchie okay? Is Pulitzer Tevya? Many questions, however this film WORKS- despite being a flop in '92, it carries the banner in our hearts. Tell us your Newsie name in a nice review on apple podcasts and shout out a headline @ITDVPodcast on Twitter!
Twitches (2005) with Aerial Washington
We find actress and podcaster Aerial Washington (@Aerial_Actress) to discover magical twins separated as babies, then raised in the mortal world. On their 21st birthday, they reunite in a clothing store and learn that they must work together to save the kingdom they JUST learned they belong to. They're not just twins, they're WITCHES, TWITCHES! The Twitches quickly learn to work together both as magical counterparts and sisters to thwart the very obvious villain in a very deserted kingdom.

However, Oscar Proud has invented some very special secret sauce that's so special, the suspicious Dr. Carver brings the Proud family to an island to partner with Oscar and try and secure the recipe for EVIL reasons! We also get peanut people and the delightful Proud family and friends who bring tons of LOL moments. Oh and there are evil clones. IT'S A LOT and A LOT OF FUN! Tell us what you thought @ITDVPodcast on Twitter!
My favorite thing to do it fall asleep watching a deliciously cringe DCOM, then I listen to the ITDV episode the next morning to find out what I missed.
I tried, I really did
I was so hoping to love this podcast, and I’m really sorry I couldn’t. The first few episodes were fine, but then I started rolling my eyes about every two minutes as the episodes continued. Between the lack of research, long tangents, and immature obsession with butts, I couldn’t do it anymore. I give it 2 stars because I kinda wanna be best friends with Clare and wish she had a podcast of her own because she seems like a sweetheart and like she actually knows things about Disney and the movie they are supposed to be discussing.
One of my favorites
This show is truly funny and a great binge distraction during Covid-19. I love hearing the deep dives into these movies, plus it gives me an excuse to rewatch all of my favorites and check out a few movies I've missed.
Rachel is legit funny, nerdy, and delightful. I love when she goes off on a tangent about the disney parks or cruises, or working for freeform.
