    273: The Oscars and Disney

    273: The Oscars and Disney

    As awards season gets underway in Hollywood, we roll out the red carpet for special guest Aaron Wallace, who joins us on this episode to look back at the many times The Walt Disney Company has been celebrated or honored at the Academy Awards during the ceremony’s 95-year history. First, we discuss our favorite Disney moments from the televised ceremonies, including song performances, acceptance speeches, wacky shticks, and more (0:42:00). Then, we take a closer look at the categories in which Disney has performed the best in the past, and we talk about our favorite winners and nominees, plus any Disney projects we think were snubbed (1:23:56).

    Also on this episode, Jeremy and Derek report on the 2023 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend—the highs and lows of running a Disney marathon, their favorite memories on the course, and more (0:01:20).

    272: The Wonderful World of Disney: Class of 1997

    Twenty-five years ago, over a span of just two months, Disney and ABC gave us original films such as Tower of Terror, Toothless, and Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. On this week's episode, we take a closer look at these films, as well as the Elijah Wood-starring version of Oliver Twist, and we break down what we love about them, what elements do and do not hold up in 2022, our biggest nitpicks and grievances, our memories of tuning in to The Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday nights, and much more!

    Plus, in another edition of "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," we share our picks for the best and worst Halloween costumes donned by characters at the Disney Parks. Come join the fun!

    271: A 'Disney Wish' Come True

    Come sail away with us on the brand new Disney Wish, on which we spent four days dining with Elsa and the Avengers, sipping cocktails in a galaxy far, far away, celebrating Halloween with Mickey and the gang, and rediscovering the joys of a relaxing and worry-free vacation. Join us for this special trip report as we discuss everything the newest Disney ship has to offer, as well as reminisce about our favorite memories from our first ever cruise. Plus, we touch on some of the new (and new-to-us) experiences at Walt Disney World, including the newly revamped Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!

    270: Disney Legends Draft

    270: Disney Legends Draft

    Now that the most recent class of Disney Legends has been named and inducted, we're taking this opportunity to discuss the Disney Legends whose projects and contributions to The Walt Disney Company have meant the most to us personally. Guest Guy Selga joins us for a Disney Legends Draft, in which we each compile a team of ten Disney Legends we want to pay special tribute to. Help us celebrate these outstanding men and women as we discuss the impact they've had on the Disney community and Disney history.
    Also on this episode, we go "Behind the Magic" of one of our favorite characters, Sonny Eclipse, whose voice actor sadly passed away last month. Plus, we bring back Disney Taglines with a special Hocus Pocus edition, in which we must assign classic quotes from the film to something in the Disney universe.
    Be sure to find our guests and their Disney projects online. Let them know you enjoyed hearing them on the show!

    BONUS EPISODE: The Evolution of Cruella de Vil (from Dizney Coast to Coast)

    BONUS EPISODE: The Evolution of Cruella de Vil (from Dizney Coast to Coast)

    Over on the Dizney Coast to Coast podcast, our friend Jeff DePaoli (whose show is currently on hiatus) has been spotlighting other Disney podcasts, including our own. To return the favor, we're bringing you one of our favorite episodes of his show, which he recorded with fellow friend and podcaster Courtney Guth. On this episode, Jeff and Courtney take a look at the evolution of Cruella de Vil, from her first appearance in the original book "The Hundred and One Dalmatians," to Walt Disney's portrayal of her in the animated classic "One Hundred and One Dalmatians," Glenn Close's live-action interpretation in "101 Dalmatians," and, of course, the latest prequel "Cruella." Get ready for some Disney villain goodness and so much more on this episode!

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly about WDW.

Chatters, Derek, Matt and Jeremy discuss all things WDW. Different from other Disney pods, the Chatters aren’t selling vacation planning, or personal appearances, it’s just 3 friends discussing their love for all things Walt Disney World. Full of games, friendly debates, and my personal favorite feature: the good, the bad and the ugly, where they’re not afraid to throw shade at hideous character costumes, (Looking at you, Abu) or the best bathroom stall on property. It gets weird, and I’m here for all of it.

Top Tier Disney Fan Podcast

If you’re looking for an all things Disney podcast, but mainly Florida, that takes more deep dives than your standard news... Hi, Hello, How are you

You found it.

I’m not a fan of standard daily news type shows for Disney. I’m really here because I like “hanging out” with the hosts. Derek, Jeremy and Matt. When I listen to them, I honestly just put myself there too, with them in the games, segments, and “in” the parks. They are the kind of people I want to go to the parks with.
