Episode #335 - an update on Lost and Found at Disney World

Overview:  Today's episode is a look at my YouTube series Lost and Found at Walt Disney World.  I talk a little about behind the scenes.  I give a sense of what I am doing with the series.  And I tell you about the episodes that are currently available.  I hope you'll check out the series!

Episode #334 - A quick visit and a look at Wreck-it-Ralph

Overview:  I had a chance to visit over the holidays, so I talk about that experience - and mildly rant about the holiday experience at Disney (for me, personally, its too much, but that's just my opinion).  And I provide a review of Ralph Breaks the Internet.  

Notes: The audio quality is less than perfect, and I apologize for that up front.  :)  Seems I had an issue with the microphone I was using.  By the way the picture is me in front of the purple wall.

Oh and....I got my son to try the Beverly.  That was ... amusing.

Episode #333 - Vegetarian Dining at Walt Disney World

Overview:  Today, I take a look around to see what's cooking - literally. I'm on a quest to find vegetarian dining at all 4 theme parks, and in some resorts. Here's to hoping you take some time on your next trip to check out some of these terrific options!

Notes: Its not all that hard to find really good (and tasty!) vegetarian options around the parks at counter service restaurants.  And even vegan options are popping up more and more.

As I noted in the podcast, when in doubt about any ingredients for vegetarian reasons or allergies, just ask!

Episode #332: the Golden Horseshoe

Overview:  Today’s podcast is a tribute to the Golden Horseshoe which begat the Diamond Horseshoe at WDW which begat the Tokyo Disneyland version of the Golden Horseshoe. I talk about it’s history, what Walt created, and Disney Legends Betty Taylor (aka Slu Foot Sue) and Wally Boag (aka Pecos Bill).

Notes: I find it intriguing how much Walt loved the old west and included many elements at DisneyLand.

I wanted to point out that while it’s clearly a “saloon” and modeled as such, Walt was careful to have Slu Foot Sue refer to it as a “cafe”

The audio of Wally Boag as Jose is pulled from the “barker bird” who sat outside the Tiki Room for many years.

Here’s Walt and Lillian’s anniversary party.
