Episode #130 - the Country Bear Jamboree

This podcast is the full audio from the show before the changes that were made at the end of last year. And of course, I have to provide some context about the show - how did it all start? who was the imagineer behind it? And who are all the bears anyway?

Sit back and just enjoy the Country Bear Jamboree!

Episode #129 - Disney news for 2/16/13

On today's podcast, I have a number of things to talk about.  Starting with the Star Wars franchise, the rumors about Cars Land, new things to do and see at Walt Disney World, and lots, lots more!

I also talk about Tony Baxter retiring, Disney's effort to buy the Scripps Network, information about a company Digital Domain, and I end with a discussion about "Escape from Tomorrow" a movie made surreptitiously at Disney World.

In the podcast I mention the dragon seen in FantasyLand.  Here's a video of that cool new feature....

Episode #128 - updates on MyMagic+ and saving on your vacation

Today's podcast explores topics from previous podcasts. First, there is a more expansive discussion about how to save on your Disney vacation (from podcast #123). Yes, you can save if you look for some discounts or "bundle" tickets, meals, and hotel.

And you really should consult with an authorized Disney travel agent such as Destinations in Florida

Next, I look at MyMagic+, now that there are more details emerging....I spoke about this on podcast #124.

I've got some new information I recently learned, and I share that; plus there are some articles about the topic that I found. Let's say that there's some interesting "stuff" going on, and that Disney has invested a lot - but there are still many questions to be answered.

One article I mention is from article about retailers watching you...its worth a read in its entirety.

And since I mentioned my Hidden Mickeys get them from iTunes:

iPhone Hidden Mickeys app

iPad Hidden Mickeys app

The great part is you can see them all, and add your own!
