Magic Our Way - Artistic Buffs Talkin' Disney Stuff

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. This show is a continuation of show #027a. As we have stated before, we may take breaks now and then, but we are not going away anytime soon. Thank you for your patience!

This week’s show is a continuation of the discussion we began last week. We begin by finishing up our discussion regarding the Magicband system in Walt Disney World. The next thing we talk about is expanding mass transit in WDW. We are wondering if monorails were so expensive to build, why not use conventional trains to scoot around the World? Why use so many buses instead? And lastly, we discuss the whole policy of filling in every available space. It is not that we disagree with it. But, we point out that there are some people that actually don’t understand this policy invoking some kind of anger towards the guest who does understand it and is just responding to what he/she has been instructed to do by the cast member.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. We are back with a new series of shows related to our favorite topic: all things magical, but mostly Disney!!! We are so glad to be back recording again as this gives us an escape from our daily life. As we have stated before, we may take breaks now and then, but we are not going away anytime soon. Thank you for your patience!

This week, we decided to do another BIG Queue show because there are so many things for us to talk about. This week we talk about iTunes placement. It seems like we are creeping up among the ranks of known Disney podcasts. We’re rubbing shoulder-to-shoulder with one of our favorite podcasters. That is always exciting. Also, in response to the release of Avatar Land concept art, we offer our opinions once again regarding this highly debatable land. And, because Kevin will be experiencing it for the first time, we decided to discuss as much of what we know regarding the new Magicband system. We talk pros and cons and expectations, etc etc.

Thank you for your patience!

This week, since we have a lot of catching up to do, we decided to do another BIG Queue show so that we can offer our opinions on things that have happened in the past several months. Now, as a disclaimer, I would like to say that we actually recorded this show about a month ago. So, there will be some recent events that we will have not commented on yet. But, rest assured, we will. On this episode we talk about the Polynesian DVC, the new California Grill, the NEW Guest Assistance Program, and much, much more!!!

Plus, I bring back an old segment: I BEG TO DIFFER. You’ll want to hear it.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. It is time for a fresh, uplifting show!!! And, the topic we have chosen to accomplish this is ROMANCE!!! Let’s go!!!

This week, we once again address several topics which peaked our interest for discussion while waiting in the Queue. In this case, we enrich our literary minds by discussing books that are in the works such as a comic book, a graphic novel, and Marty Sklar’s new book, Dream It! Do it!: My Half-Century Creating Disney’s Magic Kingdoms, which is coming out on August 13, 2013. 

In the Hub, we talk about how to have a romantic time in Walt Disney World. Yes, you read that correctly! Couples can have a romantic time in Disney World....should one have thorough planning of said experience. We gladly share some of our tips of things to do and not to do when planning a romantic romp through the parks. Itineraries...YES, we came up with our own versions of a one day romantic experience at Disney World. Danny will take the “blue sky” approach and Kevin will take a rather less expensive approach to romancing your significant other in the World. Listen and see what they have to say. If you have any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at magicourway@gmail.com. We could probably use the help. HAHAHA!

Follow him on Twitter (@allinwdw.com) and like his page on Facebook (Bob Allinwdw).

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. It is time for part 2 of our mind blowing and rather mentally exhausting discussion into Jon Negroni’s Pixar Theory. 

This week, we once again address several topics which peaked our interest for discussion while waiting in the Queue. The Festival of the Lion King finally settles on its home. Disneyland has some last minute, end-of-the-summer vacation deals. Disney sets to make the Artemis Fowl series of books into a series of movies based around this character. And, we decide to look at another one of Bob’s polls from All In WDW. This time, we talk about the results of the King of the World poll he conducted in April 2013. This poll set out to see which attraction was deemed the best in the “World.” 

In the Hub, we have part two of our discussion regarding THE PIXAR THEORY by Jon Negroni (www.jonnegroni.com). We are working to fully understand the theory and to see if it “holds water” so to speak. Anyway, if you have not heard about this theory, go read it on Jon Negroni’s website. We would love to get your reaction to this. In short, it addresses a notion that all of the Pixar movies exist within the same universe. We surmise that it is not the same universe in which we exist. It deals with two developing concepts over time in the “Pixar” universe: the advancement of animal intelligence and the advancement of artificial intelligence to the point that neither machine nor animal need humans to survive. Wild, huh?!?! Read it, listen to our thoughts and please write us with your thoughts at magicourway@gmail.com. The second half of the discussion goes Syndrome and Zero Point Energy through Wall-E and Monsters and back to Brave. Good luck! If you survive the mental adventure that awaits you, you deserve a cookie and a pat on the back. We are glad this discussion is over. We promise something light and happy for next week. HAHA!

You can view the results of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios polls on his website. Look for “Reader Favorites.” Round 1 is on Friday and the Final round is on Saturday with the winner to be announced on Sunday. Next week, he will have the winners from each of the four parks go head to head in the best Quick Service option in the “World.”

Thanks again for listening to us. We do realize that you have many choices when it comes to Disney podcasts and we appreciate your attention. Buenas dias podcast listeners, my siestas are getting shorter and shorter.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. It is time for part 1 of some mind blowing discussions related to Disney movies. We are mentally worn out after recording this part. Hahaha!

This week, we once again address several topics which peaked our interest for discussion while waiting in the Queue. Phineas and Ferb and Star Wars...THE UNIVERSES COLLIDE!!! Along with this, Epcot’s Journey into Imagination pavillion is schedule to go down for a redo....possibly. AT&T customers will hopefully receive a “luxury” at the Disney parks on both coasts as AT&T becomes the official provider for the resorts. Rivers of Light...RIVERS OF LIGHTTTTT...at the Animal Kingdom...this is a parade on the river that is to take place at night. Is this enough to make Animal Kingdom an all day park for you? We shall see...we shall see. No more Spectromagic...it has been confirmed by Disney officials...Kevin is in mourning.

In the Hub, we discuss THE PIXAR THEORY by Jon Negroni (www.jonnegroni.com). We are working to fully understand the theory and to see if it “holds water” so to speak..and to reference "My Cousin Vinny.” “YUTES!” Anyway, If you have not heard about this theory, go read it on Jon Negroni’s website.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. We are 21 shows old today and we are feeling very adult!!! We have a great show for you today as we explore another aspect of park life that has never seen the light of day.

In this week’s Queue, we once again address several topics which peaked our interest for discussion while waiting in the queue. Disney performs a “Hat trick” at the Rose and Crown Pub in the United Kingdom pavilion in EPCOT Center. The last bastion of Merriweather Adam Pleasure’s vision has finally left the building. You can now recharge and discharge in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. We talk about the lineup of narrators for the 2013 Candlelight Processional. With the coming of new things that one must do, we will soon see a new version of Must-Dos on resort TV starring the lovely, and always perky, Stacy Aswad. And lastly, for those wishing to become part of the magic, we discuss some upcoming auditions taking place soon.

In the Hub, we discuss the missing, yet ever referenced, land in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Beastly Kingdom. This land was supposed to be located where Camp Minnie Mickey is today. Through research we talk about what the land was supposed to look like, what the details of the attractions and restaurants were to be, and the eventual demise of the plans for this remarkable land. We feel that this is a land that could have done really well since its opening and we are sad to know that it might not happen. Maybe in the future, who knows? After all, “if we can dream it, we can do it.”

Well, they are. Also, we chat about the “Rapid Fill” program which is the new tiered pricing program utilizing the RFID chips in the drink mugs. We also tease about our Halloween show for this year.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. It is our first major holiday show!!! It’s is our 3.5 hour July 4th American Independence Day spectacular!!!!....not really. It is a long show, however...1 hour and 45 minutes long. Kevin had a lot of fun coming up with new jingles, background music, and sounds for this 4th of July special. What’s even better is that this is a regular format show...somewhat. LOL!!!

In this week’s Queue, the boys do not necessarily chat about the latest news. However, while waiting in line, they do decide do a salute to patriotic things at all of the Disney parks.... but mostly Walt Disney World and Disneyland. A lot of help came from the Military Disney Tips blog on the www.militarydisneytips.com website. This website has a great series of blogs related to experiencing all things patriotic that happen in Walt Disney World. This is not just talking about the special events that happen on July 4th, but rather things of a patriotic nature that happen year-round. This is the stuff that makes the hairs on the back of an American’s head stand up whenever you visit them. Things mentioned include the Disney flag retreat, the Hall of Presidents, the American Adventure, and the Shades of Green resort.

And then, in the Hub, the boys discuss a 1990s Eisner creation that never saw the light of day: Disney’s America theme park. This resort was to be placed in Haymarket, Virginia not far from Washington, D.C. This theme park was to be dedicated to the history of the United States from the 1840s to 1945. They explore the layout of the park including all of the lands, the proposed attractions, where some of the ideas ended up, and instances that led to the downfall and demise of Eisner’s pet project. 

And lastly, we end the show not with our regular closing jingle, but with the popular song from the American Adventure pavilion, “Golden Dream.” This celebrates the spirit of America and serves as our salute to the nation’s birthday.

Thanks again for listening to us. We do realize that you have many choices when it comes to Disney podcasts and we appreciate your attention. Also, we were talking about seatbelts. Plug them in. Use them. It can get kinda choppy out there, so keep your hands and arms inside the podcast at all times. Flash photography? I wouldn’t. It alters the podcast’s homing signal and that’s not good.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. Since we decided to do an All-About-The-Queue Show last week, we thought we would follow it up with an All-About-The-Hub Show this week.

Yes, indeed! We are reviewing the ENTIRE Monsters University experience. Not only do we talk about the movie in and of itself, but we also talk about the stuff that happened before the movie even started. We will discuss the trailer for Disney Planes movie, which is set to open in August, the trailer for Despicable Me 2, and the Pixar short, The Blue Umbrella. One trailer that we forgot to mention on the show is the trailer for Turbo, which we will most likely discuss on next week’s show; there is nothing more amusing than a very fast snail. With the Monsters University movie, we discuss the link between Monsters Inc and this movie, the music and the art that was involved, and the overall message that we came away with. Let’s see if this is what you came away with too. We decided to use some different segment music throughout the show and this week’s closing song is no exception. So, make sure you listen through the end of the show. And if you are interested, the soundtrack for the movie is available in iTunes, actually wherever you buy your music whether it is through download or hardcopy. Also, you can catch the Blue Devils Drum Corps from Concord, CA at a DCI event near you. Check out www.dci.org for more information.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. This week’s show is a bit different than our normal shows as this one is our BIG, HUGE, 7 and 1/2 hour Queue show condensed into one hour!!! 

Yes, you read this correctly, we have a myriad of topics that we wanted to discuss, but we just didn’t have one that would be broad enough for one Hub segment, so we decided to just chat while “waiting in line.” Kevin would first like to clarify the Walt Disney World cooler restrictions which was generally mentioned on last week’s show. He felt it is his responsibility to ensure that he did not mislead any listeners to that fact. Next, the boys discuss the new Disney Transportation paint job that they are putting on the busses. If you have not seen the pictures, go look at them. We would love to hear you opinions regarding this change in look. Then, Kevin gets a couple of things off of his chest: Princess Sofia’s inability to pronounce the name Cedric and his inability to do any the characters movements during the Hot Dog Dance at the end of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. After this, we read a email we received from one of our listeners and respond and talk about other Magic Our Way ideas that he brought up. Lastly, we talk about the large rumor regarding Star Wars Land and Cars Land coming to Hollywood Studios. We take a MOW approach to what we would like to see regarding this particular addition to the park.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast...count ‘em: TWO, TWO, TWO IN A ROW!!! Woo hoo!!! or Woot!!! as the kids like to say. 

While waiting in the Queue, Danny and Kevin discuss a new event happening at Downtown Disney which is being called Carmasters Weekend. Also, this year’s D23 Expo attendees will be treated to a spectacular musical review in a production exclusive to this expo entitled Broadway and Beyond. This unique production will feature numerous stars from the Disney Theatrical universe. The Muppets Take Broadway...that’s all I have to say about that. Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival Registration opens soon. Are you ready for all the scrumptiousness headed your way?

In the Hub, Kevin and Danny discuss ways to keep cool during this time of the travel year. Ladies and Gentleman, it’s hot!!! Since some of you will be touring the parks during this time of year, Kevin wanted to discuss the ways in which he keeps himself and, more importantly, his little ones cool especially when traversing the World in their stroller. Many of these points can be applied to adults as well. So, with a little planning, you can stay safe, stay cool, and stay sane while touring the parks during the hot months. Just like Florida says, “Arrive Alive” which can also be taken to mean, when you arrive here and start doing what you are doing, make sure you do it smart so that you can “depart alive” too. Maybe that was a little stretch, but you get the idea.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast...a REBIRTH, if you will. We do explain our lengthy hiatus, but we assure you that we will not go away. We appreciate your understanding and your willingness to stay subscribed to us.

On this week’s Queue, we discuss the raising of the ticket prices, an event which is quickly becoming an expectation akin to gas prices. And, for those looking to become part of the magic, we will give you a quick run down of any upcoming auditions. 

In the Hub, we talk about Merida’s makeover for the Disney Princesses line of products. Is it good? Is it bad? Lets put it in perspective here. Also, we run off on a tangent and move into a bit reminiscent of our old Magic Our Way segment: we discuss Tangled, Brave, and Wreck It Ralph attraction ideas.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. On this week’s Queue, we discuss Disneyland and OSHA’s involvement in closing down several of the rides there. We also talk about the new Adventureland interactive game, which is reminiscent of the Sorcerer's of the Magic Kingdom game, that is coming to the Magic Kingdom park. And, once again, for those looking to become part of the magic, we will give you a quick run down of any upcoming auditions. Now, as you read this, it is time to get comfy in your chair and grab a drink, if you desire, and get ready to relax with us. Through this week’s Hub segment, we will transport you to places around the Walt Disney Resort which are relaxing to us. These places have been experienced and proven by the Magic Our Way staff. You might want a notepad for this so that you can remember these places for the next time you travel down to the World.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. We are back with a somewhat NEW format of the show. Well, we really did not add anything new; we just consolidated one segment into the other two. It is thoroughly explained in the show. So, for this week in the Queue, we discuss the Annette Funicello’s life, the sequel to the Finding Nemo movie entitled Finding Dory, and I give you heads up on some auditions happening in the coming weeks in case you want to be part of the magic. In the Hub segment, we discuss how not to feel underwhelmed at Disneyland. This topic is specifically aimed at Walt Disney World people who have yet to make their pilgrimage to our “Mecca”, Disneyland, and are thinking about going or planning to go there in the near future. Yeah, it’s smaller, so what!!! That’s one of the reasons Mr. Disney came out to Florida was to have a bigger canvas. But, there is still so much magic available to you in that resort.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. We are back with a somewhat normal format of a show. We have our Queue segment in which we discuss the topic everyone in the Disney community is buzzing about, the Disney Springs makeover of Downtown Disney. Our Hub segment this week comes from the Magic Our Way Vault. We recorded this back in 2012 when the first news of Limited Time Magic was released. This was actually recorded before we started posting shows to our server and distributing them. So, this is an older recorded segment, but it turned out to be one of our better shows. The topic of Limited Time Magic rolls over into our Magic Our Way segment in which Danny and I brainstorm ideas of what we would like to see happen during the year of Limited Time Magic. Lastly, we introduce a new segment to our show, I Beg To Differ. It is not meant to be controversial or disrespectful to any other podcasters. We are fans first of both Disney and of the established podcast shows. But, every now and then, we hear things that we either disagree with or have our own opinions to or are able to contribute more information towards whatever topic they are discussing. You know how podcasters always talk about people screaming at their iPods? Well, we took it one step further and created our own podcast. The I Beg To Differ segment is a “seasonal” segment. 

As always, if you like the show, please rate us and leave a review in the iTunes Store. We do appreciate you taking the time to do so. Also, you can find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@magicourway). Find some of our video statuses on Keek.com.

Thanks again for listening to us. We do realize that you have many choices when it comes to Disney podcasts and we appreciate your attention. Thank you for flying Magic Our Way. “You DO have wings ! You CAN do all these things ! We'll be your wings ! [Magic Our Way]: the wings of man!” As always, have a happy day!!!

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. This episode is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. A lot of stuff is happening in mine and Danny’s lives this week which I explain in more detail in my intro. Anyway, we present to you ride audio form the NEW Test Track in Epcot center. So, hop into your car and safely reenact the events from the ride. HAHAHA! Please don’t do that and if you do, be smart about it. Besides, 65 mph feels different in your car than it does in the Test Track vehicles. We will be back next week for a regular show.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! We are introducing a new series of podcasts on our same feed called the Magic Our Way Field Reports. These shows will not be a regular segment due to the fact that these are podcasts we record straight on location at a Disney park or Disney event. You can call it our "on location" podcasts. We grab the portable studio and record anything from a mini trip report or attraction audio or interviews. 

This series of field reports centers around Danny's trip he took with his family back in January 2013. This episode features Danny, Rob-O, and the little ones and back again is Aaron.

If you enjoy these trip reports, let us know by sending your comments and suggestions to magicourway@gmail.com. You can follow us on Twitter (@magicourway) and like us on Facebook. You can also follow us on the video status site, Keek. We know you have a multitude of Disney podcasts to chose from and we appreciate you taking the time to give us a listen.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. In fact, this is a special episode for us because we made it in to the land of double digits!!! And, we decided enter this realm in a big way by doing our "often teased, but never done" BIG DVC SHOW!!! On this episode, Danny and Kevin are joined by Danny's brother-in-law, Aaron. Aaron travelled with Danny during their trip in January 2013 and is also featured in our new upcoming mini-series, Field Reports...more on this later. 

It is our goal with this DVC show to give the potential buyer as much info to consider as we can so that hopefully you will make the right decision for your family. And we stress, every situation is different. This isn't your regular DVC show. We don't address the points system and how it works or the whole banking/borrowing thing. We feel other shows have covered it well and you as a potential buyer will have most likely gotten that information from somewhere on the internet. 

We fully explore topics such as the following:

  • fully considering your family situation
  • the annual dues and how are they are calculated and its relation to what home resort you purchase in to
  • the diminishing value of a DVC discount
  • cost-effective use of your points
  • the resale market vs. DVC
  • booking window, maid service, etc...

Now, if you want us to do a show on how the DVC works, let us know and we will do that for you. On this show, we are not just playing roles, but are actually living them. This is what I mean:

  • Danny is seriously considering the Disney Vacation Club
  • Kevin is in the Disney Vacation Club
  • Aaron has fully researched the Disney Vacation Club and has decided, at least for now, it is not the right decision for him and his family.

We will most likely do another show soon regarding the whole rent DVC points thing and other things we were not able to cover. So, if there is something that we didn’t get to or if you have a question regarding DVC that you would like us to explore, please don’t hesitate to email us. We want to hear from you. 

Now, the Field Reports!!! On this same Magic Our Way feed, we will release our Field Report series of mini-podcasts. These will not be a regularly occurring show as it will be recorded on our actual trips to a Disney park. We have a set of four shows ready for release ifor next week. Let us know what you think.

As always, if you like the show, please rate us and leave a review in the iTunes Store. We do appreciate you taking the time to do so. Also, you can find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@magicourway). Find some of our video statuses on Keek.com.

This week’s show is Kevin’s trip report to Walt Disney World which took place during the week of Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day. The Limited Time Magic promotion was called True Love Week. In regards to food, Kevin discusses his first time dining at the following: Olivia’s at the Old Key West Resort, the Hoop Dee Doo Revue at Fort Wilderness, and the Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort. Kevin professes his love for the lamb shank offering found at Gaston’s Tavern in the new part of Fantasyland.

Jambeaux. everyone!

Welcome to the 4th episode of Magic Our Way. This was supposed to be our Christmas show to be released on December 23, 2012. But, due to the flu, things got delayed. We still wanted to release this episode anyway because we found it to be one of our better shows. 

This week Kevin and Danny are joined by fellow QMark Productions podcasters, Eli and Mike from the And Another Thing Podcast...both of whom are Disney fans in their own right. For the Hub, we discuss rides that we never got a chance to visit because we were not inerested in them or we just never think to get around to it upon our visits. Also, we discuss the "one-and-done" attractions. These are those attractions that we have gone on once without feeling the need to repeat that experience again. For the Magic Our Way segment, we feature a piece of music arranged by New Orleanian, Kevin Caparotta. His arrangement of Jingle Bells can be heard performed by the Orlando-based vocal quartet, Return 2 Zero. Known by their Disney name, Four for a Dollar, Return 2 Zero used to be part of the preshow at the Beauty and the Beast Stage Show at Disney's Hollywood Studios, could have been be found in the Streets of America during the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and were performers at Sea World Orlando. 

Again, if you enjoy our show. please rate and leave us feedback in iTunes and using whatever social media you're into, let your friends know that you are listening to our show. You can also follow us on Twitter, Keek, and Facebook (@magicourway). If you have any comments or suggestions or if you just want to say "hi," please feel free to shoot us an email at magicourway@gmail.com.
