Paul Torrigino: Former Imagineer (Beastlie Kingdomme, Dinosaur, Maelstrom) - MOW #107

Jambeaux, everyone!!! 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 Kevin, Danny, Lee: a travel agent with Magical Moments Vacations (a Platinum Earmarked Disney Travel Agency), and Eli of www.ivorycomcs.com for this episode.

 

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.

 

Fellow MOWicans, ladies, and gentlemen. For the Hub, this week, we present to you former Disney Imagineer, Paul Torrigino: a man who owned his own online tiki bar sign business, Pariarts. If you were looking for that crowning touch to your tiki bar, this was the person to talk to. However, adding to the decor of your own tiki bar is not the reason why we have Paul Torrigino on our show today.

 

Twenty-one years is the time Paul Torrigino spent at Walt Disney Imagineering and over those 21 years, he worked as Production Artisan, Production Designer, Art Director, Concept Designer and Show Designer. He worked on most of the large Disney Imagineering projects, including one of Kevin’s personal favorites, Dinosaur in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

 

His versatility allowed him to stay with the company for all those years which, in turn, allowed him to work on a variety of projects in various capacities. Yes, he worked with animatronics, but in addition to all of this...well... allow me to throw out some familiar names:

  • Maelstrom
  • Disneyland Paris, or EuroDisney as it was referred to in the beginning
  • Beastlie Kingdomme (often misspelled “Beastly Kingdom”)
  • Tokyo Disney Sea

just to name a few.

 

Before all of this, however, Paul Torrigino was a Disney fan through his high school and college years much like myself and my cohorts as well as many of you listening. Except his path gave him the opportunity to fulfill many a Disney fan’s dream which is to become a Disney Imagineer.

 

Fellow MOWicans, ladies, and gentlemen, enough reading, I present to you former Disney Imagineer, Paul Torrigino. Listen to his stories and treasure what he has done for the Disney company.

 

What did you think about our interview with Paul Torrigino? Any comments? Share them at magicourway@gmail.com.

 

In the Queue, we discuss the two big features that have been rumored to come out for MyMagic+ in the very near future. One involves Fastpass+ which is slated to come online in April 2016 and the other involves something called StoryMaker (release date TBD).

 

There is no Guest Services for this episode. This segment will return at a later time .

Deadpool: A Marvel Moment - MOW #106

Jambeaux, everyone!!! 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, Lee: a travel agent with Magical Moments Vacations, and Eli of www.ivorycomcs.com for this episode. 

 

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.

 

The Hub is all about the movie, Deadpool, which was released upon the world on February 12, 2016. Yes, we know it is technically not a Disney Marvel movie (as the movie is with 20th Century Fox). But, it is a Marvel movie nonetheless and we are sure something is going back to Disney somehow because Disney owns Marvel.

 

Please note that this is a spoiler filled episode! If you have not seen the movie yet and don’t want to have it ruined, please delay the listening of this show until you get a chance to do so…and you definitely should go see it soon.

 

How did you feel about the movie, Deadpool? What did you think about it? Any comments? Share them at magicourway@gmail.com.

 

In the Queue, Lee reports on the new Adventures By Disney itineraries that have been released AND talks about what is replacing the Dream Along with Mickey show.

 

In Guest Services, we recognize Mr. MOW-nonymous aka Richard Hercher, Captain Stan, and Rick Suero aka Books with Lee.

Podcast Trip November 2015 - MOW Field Report #013

Jambeaux, everyone!!! We are continuing our series of podcasts on our same feed called the Magic Our Way Field Reports. To remind the listener, 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. 

On this particular show, The Magic Our Way Podcast takes a trip down to Walt Disney World to celebrate their 100th show, experience Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival, and to experience the race atmosphere of the Wine and Dine Half Marathon.

On this field report, Kevin reports on an incident which happened on a Epcot parking tram that we found was not handled in a manner consistent with Disney practices. Give it a listen!

As always, we promise to give the Disney fan a voice!

What did you think about our review? Did you have a different experience? Any comments? Share them at magicourway@gmail.com.

 

Visit us on our website, www.magicourway.com, and send us a Speakpipe message or email us at magicourway@gmail.com. Call or TEXT us at (815) MOWICAN (669-4226). We love to hear from any and all of our listeners.
