On this episode, we continue to discuss the latest movie to come out of the Star Wars franchise, The Last Jedi. However, if you consider the previous episode, MOW #197, as the dark side, this episode will present the LIGHT side. There has been much criticism of the movie and there has been much praise as well. This is a spoiler filled movie discussion.

We also present an email from a long time MOWican, Eric Grubb of the 501st who came to the defense of the movie and thereby inspired this episode.

For this special edition of the Magic Our Way podcast, Lee defends Buc-ee’s, that convenience store from Texas that is a land of wonderment.

If you are listening to this show, it is because of two reasons:

  1. You have not seen Coco yet and are avoiding listening to MOW #194 OR
  2. You have finished MOW #194 and are excited to have another offering for you to listen to this week.

This is a segment from MOW #192 that did not make the inital cut, but was so fun that we decided to keep it for future use.

What do you think of Buc-ee’s? Have you ever visited one? Any and all opinions are welcome on the Magic Our Way Podcast. Share them at show@magicourway.com.

For this episode, we discuss the latest offering to come out of Pixar, Coco. It was released in the United States of America during the 2017 Holiday season on November 21, 2017. The movie uses the Mexican holiday, El Día De Los Muertos as a backdrop for this story.

We discuss such things as where Coco would rank in our list of Pixar movies, would you like to see this replace the Three Caballeros in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot, and much, much more!

In addition to this, we briefly discuss the Frozen short, or LONG as it were, that precedes Coco, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. Notice that our sentence regarding the Frozen short is, in fact, short.

  • I’m surprised that they haven’t made an attraction based on this already! This would be an awesome attraction!

On this episode, we once again flex our creative muscles and do some armchair imagineering on our own with a new segment we call, Classic? Or TRASH IT!

The way this segment works is as follows. We decided on a park to work on...in this case, we chose the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Then, we each chose a land to work on so that we did not all work on the same thing. Within each land, we chose an attraction to reimagine.

Once you have heard our proposals, you get to vote on each one of our projects. You can either keep the Classic, or vote to TRASH IT and replace it with our new vision. Watch for a poll to pop up the same day we release this show. We will feature the results of our poll on an upcoming episode.

On this episode, we present a discussion about Cars 3, the Pixar movie released in the summer of 2017 movie season. Since Lee was unable to come on the show for MOW #181, we decided to let him have a majority of this episode. To help Lee out, Mr. and Mrs. MOWnonymous, Richard Hercher and Rachelle Crow-Hercher, come on the show to discuss the movie.

As you may have noticed, when Cars 3 came out in theaters, we never did a movie review. We decided to delay our discussion of Cars 3 to give you the opportunity to watch the movie and devlope your own opinions.

Do I need to say spoiler alert? Hopefully, you have seen the movie by now. If not, do it this weekend and then come back to listen to the show before we release the next show.

On this episode, we present a topic that was inspired by the MOWicans on our Facebook page. We present our Quest for the Best: Walt Disney World Park. Is there really one park to rule them all?

On MOW #178, the MOWican Nation played the Unpopular Disney Opinions game on our Facebook page. Out of this came numerous statements regarding this park is better than that park. So, we were inspired to see if there really is one Walt Disney World park that rules them all. We also wanted to see how we ranked the parks.

We ranked each park on the following categories: Attractions, Dining, Entertainment, Shopping, Choice of IP/Originality, Theming/Atmosphere, Park Icon aka “weenie,” and Characters.

For today’s Hub, we present a topic that was inspired by the MOWicans on our Facebook page: Unpopular Disney Opinions. This time the four of us present our unpopular opinions and the MOWican Nation gets to comment on our opinions much like we commented on their opinions on MOW #178.

The way this Facebook post worked is that someone would post a unpopular Disney opinion and all you could do to respond was to write “agree” or “disagree” without arguing. This time we posted our opinions as we were recording the show and we got immediate feedback from the MOWicans. It was a great time and we hope you can be part of the next one.

It was fun to hear what the MOWicans thought about our unpopular opinions. If you want to be a part of the next Facebook activity, like and follow our Facebook page and become an active member of the MOWican Nation.

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.
