    The Case of the Single Rider Springstravaganza: Part 2 featuring Tage

    The time has come! TSR All-Star Tage Bushman joins us once again to help us solve the riddle we largely made up for ourselves: which is the supreme single rider line in the Disney Resorts?
    Which will win? A slot car racing attraction? A fancy video game? Some sort of Yeti-focused experience? Most importantly, how angry will Dan get at Tage's final decision?
    Come along with us as we explore these extremely vital issues.

    The Case of the Single Rider Springstravaganza: Part 1

    The Case of the Single Rider Springstravaganza: Part 1

    It's that time of year again! Because we can't say March Madness because we will get sued...wait....'
    Anyway, it is the time of year where we create the brackets and decide the best thing in all the 4 parks or some variation of that theme.

    This year, what is the best single rider line in the domestic parks? The intent of this episode was to break down all the single rider lines and get to a top 16 so we could debate for the final episode in March with a special guest host from DL Weekly Podcast, Tage. However, upon further investigation, Disney did it for us because while there are officially 9 at Disneyland, there are only 4 at Walt Disney word.

    So, while we also discuss other items I.e. price of the parks, general hot takes etc, we land on the elite 8 and determine the brackets for this year's challenge.

    I swear we are not becoming haters on the parks, Jimmy just posed the "is it too expensive" question and like the rest of the arguments of this show, it just depends.

    The Case of the Parades at Kingdom Parks During the Day: Festival of Fantasy v Magic Happens

    The Case of the Parades at Kingdom Parks During the Day: Festival of Fantasy v Magic Happens

    Magic Happens returns to Disneyland and Festival of Fantasy never really left the Magic Kingdom. Join as we litigate the two parades you can experience on a daily basis at each Kingdom park.
    Which will win? The seasoned veteran with classic music and characters seen by millions? The upstart with new music written by an internet star? You'll have to tune in for all the song excerpts, all the analysis, all the ambivalence. Also, I think Dan has a new obsession.
    We had a fun time recording After Hours on this one as well. To have a listen, join us on Patreon at https://patreon.com/earzup

    The Case of the Hollywood Homage Restaurants: Brown Derby v Carthay Circle

    The Case of the Hollywood Homage Restaurants: Brown Derby v Carthay Circle

    It's fancy restaurant versus also fancy restaurant! As we descend further toward deciding which Hollywood tribute land is the best, we have to talk about signature restaurants.
    Which is better? The Hollywood Brown Derby has a neon sign and is a replica of a real place. The Carthay Circle Restaurant is a food place crammed into what should be a replica of a theater. It's going to be closer than you think.
    Check in with your pals who labored extensively (one of them) over this decision. We apologize just a but, but the real show doesn't start until 30 minutes in. So skip there if you don't want to listen to mail.
    I am not sure if anybody reads these because I know I rarely do.
    Have a swell February, folks.

Sea World update

Great info, Tom. I have been concerned about the Bayliner for years! However, I do disagree about ownership - the Harcourt-Brace-Jovanovich era was very educational.

Great podcast

Love your podcast. All the details and banter make it lots of fun. I’m a DW fan (Florida resident) and recently visited DL. Wish I had stumbled upon your pod sooner. I would’ve focused more on the details and charm of DL rather than comparing it to DW. Listening to your pod makes me look forward to revisiting DL and hopefully a first visit to DCA my next visit. Thanks for putting in the research and helping me realize neither park is better just different.

Subject sounds interesting. Bad execution.

A messy podcast. A lot of giggling. Silliness about things unrelated to the subject or even Disney. Talking over each other etc. great concept. Would make for an interesting discussion. Having to wait 25% of the podcast before it begins is frustrating.

Clear example. A 2hour plus podcast comparing two restaurants….. while very little of the podcast is about the actual restaurants. If you want to listen to friends giggle about things they think are funny, This is for you.
