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.

Those of you adventurers entering the world-famous Magic Our Way podcast, please notice there are two lines, one on the right and the other on the left. If you'd like to keep your family together, please stay in the same line. However, if there is someone in your family you'd like to get rid of, just put them in the opposite line and you'll never see them again.

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.

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.
