Magic Our Way - Artistic Buffs Talkin' Disney Stuff
Trip Report: Aaron & Danny - MOW #123A

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Harambe! It's Aaron and Danny's Trip Report! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. We are a New Orleans based Disney fan podcast. We appreciate your listening to our show and we hope it brings a smile to your face. We also appreciate your feedback and are committed to listening to our audience.

 

On today’s show, we have Danny, Kevin, Lee-an agent of www.magicalmomentsvacations.com, and Eli of www.ivorycomics.com.

 

Please note: the Magic Our Way Podcast is not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company or its entities. All opinions expressed therein are solely those of the Magic Our Way podcast. No animals were harmed in the making of this podcast.

 

Welcome to the HUB and for this episode, the boys welcome back Danny’s brother-in-law, Aaron, as we discuss Danny’s family trip to Walt Disney World in June of 2016.

 

Aaron was around during the early days of the Magic Our Way podcast. You can find him on MOW Field Reports 1, 2, 3, & 4 (the famous Beers on the Balcony episodes) and on the very popular MOW #010: The Disney Vacation Club - The Big Picture in Decision Making.

 

In this Trip Report, we discuss several things regarding Aaron and Danny’ trip to Walt Disney World. They dine at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs and have quite the tale to tell regarding their experience. Disney Transportation also plays a big part in their trip: a person who hasn’t been there in a while experiences changes that have been in effect that still do not make sense to this day. And, there is much more.

 

This is a tough love episode. We care fiercely about the product that Mr. Walt Disney has produced. We are a podcast that wants both sides of the story to be presented so that you can make an educated decision. Call it yin to everyone’s yang or maybe we bring balance to the force. Exercise that critical thinking muscle.

Some time has passed and hopefully emotions have been reigned in to ensure clear thought resulting in a thorough discussion.

 

We want any of the  listeners and MOWicans who have been affected by the tragedies in Orlando to know that you are in our prayers and thoughts and you will always have a listening ear on the Magic Our Way podcast if you need one.

Finding Dory: A Movie Review - MOW #122

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Harambe! Finding Dory! Spoiler Alert! Welcome to another episode of the Magic Our Way podcast. We are a New Orleans based Disney fan podcast. We appreciate your listening to our show and we hope it brings a smile to your face. We also appreciate your feedback and are committed to listening to our audience.

 

On today’s show, we have Danny and Lee-an agent of www.magicalmomentsvacations.com.

 

Please note: the Magic Our Way Podcast is not affiliated with the Walt Disney Company or its entities. All opinions expressed therein are solely those of the Magic Our Way podcast. No animals were harmed in the making of this podcast.

 

Welcome to the HUB and for this episode, Danny and Lee review the movie, Finding Dory which came out in theaters in the United States of America on June 17, 2016.

 

Thirteen years ago on May 30, 2003, Pixar gave us a story about a father on a desperate search to find the last remaining member of his family. It took him from his home in a coral reef to the EAC (Eastern Australian Current) to a forest of jellyfish and more.

 

In 2016, the story is reversed. In Finding Nemo, the parent is looking for the child; in Finding Dory, the child is looking for the parent. And, as you can judge by the title, fun and adventure ensue because of the central character.

 

Listen to what Danny and Lee thought about this movie and be sure to contact us and let us know what you thought about it. WARNING: it is a spoiler filled episode. So, if you have not seen the movie, wait to listen to this episode until after you have seen it. If you are not bothered by spoilers, by all means, listen away.
