Jambeaux, everyone!!! Harambe! On this episode, our list for the Top 5 Disney Parks Exclusive Characters and we also talk about the WDW Uber-like service and the WDW Club 33 stories that came out recently.

In the Queue, we talk about two news stories that have come up recently: Disney -Uber-like service and Club 33 coming to Walt Disney World. Below are links to the articles we referenced in our discussion.

For today’s Hub, we discuss our Top 5 Disney Parks Exclusive Characters. What does this mean? These are characters whose sole purpose was for a particular attraction; the character has no external properties. A prime example of this would be Figment from the Journey Into Imagination with Figment attraction.

Did you make your own list? Did we leave some characters off? What did you think about our discussion? Any comments? Share them at show@magicourway.com.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Harambe! On this episode, we add new countries for EPCOT’s World Showcase. We also take a little time to address a couple of listener emails in Guest Services.

Recently, rumors of Spain and Brazil coming to World Showcase have been circulating the Disney-fan universe and have been ever-present in conversation as of late. In light of this, we decided to get super-creative once again and do some armchair imagineering. We each present our ideas of what other countries we would like to see added and how we would present them. This is not a criticism in which we think these would be better than Spain or Brazil. These are just other ideas we also think would be good.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Harambe! It’s a Queue and a Hub show! On this episode, we talk about some of the more interesting Lawsuits that have been brought up against The Walt Disney Company throughout the years.

 

In the Queue, we talk about one of the recent Lawsuits that has been brought up against the Walt Disney Company in which two individuals claimed to have sustained injuries on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover attraction in the Magic Kingdom.
