    And Happily Ever After returns to Magic Kingdom... Tron action figures are customizable... Energy Bytes are available soon... and Mirabel is on her way.
    Disney Springs sees Corkcicle and Summer at the Lake coming soon, while Disney hits SXSW with HoloTink and Robot Judy Hopps.

    The One with the runDisney Rookies

    In the 145th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave bring in a familiar name and returning guest Kyla Melberg, aka #kylaKylaKYLA as she's known in the podcast.
    Together, the three open up with Disney mugs and Disney shirts and Disney Funko Pops (and d$'s obsession with collecting sets now), before turning to the brief news -- including doom for the Simpsons area at Universal and a possible new princess meet n greet in MK.
    Then, a quick look at an upcoming auction where Disney transport - Autopia cars, monorails, Skybuckets - and more are being sold.
    Finally, a rundown of the Princess 1/2 Marathon weekend from a few weeks ago. Jenn shares her comparison from previous runDisney events to this one, while #kylaKylaKYLA and d$ give their rookie experience.
    Kyla shares about Sunrise Yoga, which is the new trend at the parks, while all talk about the Expo, getting to the event itself, running the race, and all the fun details -- plus what to expect when you sign up.

    The One with Airport Transfers & TSA

    The One with Airport Transfers & TSA

    In the 144th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave are talking all about airport transfers and TSA Precheck woes, both having experienced the same insanity of a long line at Orlando's MCO airport...
    First up, several news items, including guests being told a ride was closed after all the signs say that the ride is closed... Small World adding some disability representation... the new Disney Cruise Line status... eating BRUNCHCOT in EPCOT... Capt Steve Rogers getting his own musical... 
    And updated info on Florida taking over Reedy Creek at Disney World. 
    Then, the duo discuss the good and bad about the available transportation first for those arriving at MCO and trying to get to their Disney World resort, including Mears, Sunshine Flyers, rideshares, private cars, Away We Go and more...
    And then the far worse, and more entertaining, travails of trying to return back to Orlando's airport, including d$'s Mears fiasco and what happens when PreCheck is just straight up closed.

    The One with Antarctica

    The One with Antarctica

    In the 143rd episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave finally have the pleasure of releasing an episode recorded a few weeks ago, but only able to drop today... all about visiting Antarctica.
    Unfortunately, neither Jenn nor Dave got to actually go on the Adventures by Disney trip to the continent on the bottom of the world... but fortunately, Friend of the Show (and Disney exec) Marcy did! 
    Marcy D joins the show to tell us all about the recent 12 day trip that she and her daughter Rory took with Adventures by Disney, first with their stop off at Buenos Aires, then traveling through the Drake Passage (the Drake Lake? the Drake Shake??), and stepping foot onto the actual land itself. 
    From the calmness of the waters to the penguins to the safety policies and protecting the environment, Marcy gives a great account of how special this trip is.

    The One with Dave on the Wish

    The One with Dave on the Wish

    In the 142nd episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn and Dave are back after a two week absence caused by time, a faulty computer, and the fact that co-host d$ was in the Caribbean aboard the latest Disney Cruise Line ship, the Disney Wish!
    First, a pile of news to discuss, including delayed openings at Disneyland's ToonTown... the 2023 Garden Rocks lineup... the latest on Toy Story Land's Rodeo Roundup... trying to figure out who Moon Girl is... new meet n greets in the parks... new Disney sequels to Frozen, Zootopia, and what Toy Story 5 might be like... and much more! 
    Then, a look at The Disney Wish, from a newbie cruiser (or first time in 19 year cruiser), d$, and not only things he didn't realize, but also things about the ship you should know -- from dining to extra costs to Castaway Cay to how DCL handles some of their special needs programs.

    The One with Pop Century

    The One with Pop Century

    In the 141st episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave do a deep dive into one of the most popular resorts on property -- Disney's Pop Century Resort.
    But before they do, there is news to get to! Photopass jackets changing... more characters return, with those wretched photo boxes... Splash and Woody Woodpecker demolition begins... who in the world is selling Splash Water??... Tron Lightcycle locker systems... Disneyland's Mickey Minnie Runaway Railway is now open, and Dave has a big problem with them having a superior queue... 
    And then, a look at the cool history of Pop Century, with the original intent, how the plans were totally derailed, and where Art of Animation sprang from. Plus a quick overview of the resort itself, including a few cons, a lot of pros, and who might want to stay here.
