Episode #271 - MouseMingle

Overview: On today's show I welcome a fellow Dave - the founder of to talk about the site, the service...and of course we talk a lot about fun things to do at the parks!  

Notes: It was fun chatting with Dave about all things Disney.  And hearing that he worked in the roundhouse and was an engineer on the DisneyLand Railroad was pretty cool.  Of course we delve into that for a while and just chat about a shared "passion" for the Disney parks...and that's really what his site is all about anyway...

Episode #270 - Rogue One

Overview: I saw Rogue One this past weekend, and I have a movie review of sorts for you! This episode does have spoilers, so I'll wait in your queue for you to watch the movie.  

Notes: The movie was a lot of fun, and fills in many blanks in the storyline.  But (limited spoilers here) it has an unexpected tone, and does a lot of setting up the storyline - perhaps too much to get to the final payoff. Meaning, its good scifi but not good star wars for a period of time.

Episode #268 - Frozen ever after

Overview: On my most recent visit, I got a chance to see the new ride in the Norway pavilion: Frozen Ever After. Come along and hearthe ride audio, my thoughts about the ride, and I toss out a few things about Epcot as well.


Notes: I admit that I found the ride quite enjoyable.  It was cute and clever and it represented Frozen really well.  But, I honestly don't think the fictional world of Arendale fits into the real world of Norway.
