Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. This is show #028a. As we have stated before, thank you for joining us this week and thank you for your patience!

This week’s show is has been split into two episodes due to the fact that when we started recording, we did not realize that this show would become a two-hour extravaganza as well. So, this week you have 28a and next week you have 28b. So, Kevin takes a family trip to the World during Thanksgiving Week and, of course, we have to talk about it. It was Kevin's first time staying at the Polynesian Resort. Some of the things we talk about is life with a Magicband. What happens when you have the Disney Dining Plan attached to your Magicband and it is time to pay? Also, Polynesian DVC, what's up, doc? Also, since the weather was so cold that week, Kevin's family decided to stay inside and live luxuriously; for the first time in their life, they take advantage of Disney Room Service.

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.

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.”

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.”
