    The One with the Guardians Soundtrack

    The One with the Guardians Soundtrack

    In the 206th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave take on one of the best rides in Epcot -- Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind... but not just the ride, but the music itself!
    Joining Dave & Jenn is the unofficial 3rd co-host #KylaKylaKyla, aka Kyla Melberg, as she has lots of thoughts on the musical choices for the ride. 
    First up, Jenn is getting ready for her trip, Kyla is spending a fortune on passes, 
    Retheming Rock'n Roller Coaster and why rock bands may not work... The best Beatle, the worst Beatle, and who finds them overrated... an early look at the "Disney Dreams that Soar" drone show over Disney Springs waters... and a party date sells out. 
    And the challenge is... which songs should stay? Which songs should go? Dave, Jenn, and Kyla all pitch in ideas of what should be removed and what should replace it - bands like Van Halen, Heart, and Queen all get nods, as well as slower rock and even some EDM (thanks Kyla)

    Plus, find out why Kyla doesn't like "September" at all!  And what song is "Sandstorm"?

    The One with Sandals in Jamaica

    The One with Sandals in Jamaica

    In the 205th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave are back from spending a few days in the beautiful (and hot) Caribbean with a few of their travel agent co-horts.

    While Jenn is prepping to head down to Disney World, d$ literally spent about 10 hours there, and reviews his Uber problems, his mad dash through Epcot, and a few hours at Magic Kingdom.

    The Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party prices are finally out, and we give you all the news on Tiana's Bayou Adventure opening and virtual queue info! 

    Then, a recap of the trip down to Sandals Negril on the west coast of Jamaica -- discussing the food, the rooms, the excursions and more. Plus a look at the Sandals South Coast resort and Beaches Negril resort next door.
    And, how do you fill 7 days at Sandal resort? Plus, why Club Mobay is a MUST on your way out.

    The One with the Resort Talk

    The One with the Resort Talk

    In the 204th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave are a day away (at the recording) from heading to the Caribbean -- Sandals Negril Resort in Jamaica, to be exact, on a travel agent group.
    Before they split, however, they cover the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party news released with party dates and details (prices were not out at time of recording, but are available now).
    Then, we present the audio of the most recent Travel With the Stars, the YouTube show hosted by Jenn herself, featuring Dave, with fellow agents Jamie and Emily.  It's a fun conversation about the Disney resorts, and so many of the things to do from Pop Century resort  to Grand Floridian, and all in between.
    Dave & Jenn will be back next week with a full report on Sandals in Jamaica as well!

    The One with Dr. Disneyland

    The One with Dr. Disneyland

    In the 203rd episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave talk a little Disneyland today... and what better to way to do so than to have on an actual expert in such things -- Dr Jeffery Barnes, author, speaker, traveler, and super fun guy joins the show! 
    Jenn, Dave, and Jeff have a great discussion first on what created his love for Disneyland itself, then dive into a little Walt history -- plus a take on the legendary tale of "Mortimer/Mickey on the train" that perhaps wasn't quite as true as we make it out to be.
    We also compare the major Walt bios, the Gabler vs Thomas versions, as well as looking forward to Disneyland and what might happen in the upcoming expansion (if? when?)
    Finally, a quick round of The Wheel of Magical Random to find a few faves like Hidden Mickeys and rides we wished we could be on.  
    Dr. Jeffery Barnes is one of the foremost authorities on Walt Disney and the secrets to Walt's success, and the author of "The Wisdom of Walt" and "Beyond the Wisdom of Walt", and travels the country and world teaching such things.

    The One with the Travel Bucket List

    The One with the Travel Bucket List

    In the 202nd episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn and Dave are celebrating National Bucket List Day! 

    This leads to a discussion about the things, mostly travel related, that are on both their bucket lists... places they'd like to visit, cruises they'd like to take, ground they'd like to set their feet upon, and theme parks to fly to.
    First though, Jenn is getting ready for a huge travel summer, while Dave is putting a Cap on his wall. Then, a little news -- Epcot's Food & Wine Festival dates have been released, and we speculate on why the festival time period is shorter... and if it has to do anything with the upcoming CommuniCore opening.. and of course, speculation of what we might see in there.
    Then, Disney filed permits for work on the Imagination Pavilion, so we also make some wildly off base yet fully educated guesses as to what Disney might be doing next in this area. And, is Figment so popular that he still needs his own attraction? 
    Hollywood Studios has a 35th anniversary coming up... Smellephant is brand new in Magic Kingdom... new experiences require pre-payment (and why Mace Windu's lightsaber is purple)... and Jenn's joy that her favorite restaurant just got one huge award. 
    Then onto the Bucket List chat, which really just devolves into a travel discussion about places we want to go, but it's always entertaining.

    The One with the Freedom of the Seas

    The One with the Freedom of the Seas

    In the 201st episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave have returned from their group trip aboard the Royal Caribbean cruise liner Freedom of the Seas!

    First, Dave gets some new movies while Jenn preps for Tiana's Bayou Adventure, then they take a look at the upcoming Disneyland Forward - what it is, where it is, and what we might see coming soon.
    Then, Dave first gives a rundown of Royal Caribbean, with the early ships to the most recent behemoth Icon of the Seas, then they recap their full weekend where the Freedom of the Seas cruised down to Perfect Day at CocoCay and then over to Nassau - first, d$'s madcap night arriving to the port, while Jenn discusses her previous experience on Royal ships. 

    They review the ship itself - the pros and cons to the cabins, what there is to do, the extremely cool promenade, and the lacking quality of the food. 

    Finally, Dave gives a quick review on his experience aboard the Brightline train from Miami to Orlando, in a great episode of new and returning experiences.
