Magic Our Way - Artistic Buffs Talkin' Disney Stuff (Places and Travel)

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.

You CAN do all these things ! We'll be your wings ! [Magic Our Way]: the wings of man!” As always, have a happy day!!!

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.

Jambeaux, everyone!!! We are introducing a new series of podcasts on our same feed called the Magic Our Way Field Reports. 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. 

This series of field reports centers around Danny's trip he took with his family back in January 2013. It features his brother-in-law, Aaron, whom you first heard on our DVC show, MOW #010. On this episode, they talk about their first day on property at Walt Disney World...more specifically the trials they experienced.

If you enjoy these trip reports, let us know by sending your comments and suggestions to magicourway@gmail.com. You can follow us on Twitter (@magicourway) and like us on Facebook. You can also follow us on the video status site, Keek. We know you have a multitude of Disney podcasts to choose from and we appreciate you taking the time to give us a listen. 

Magic out!!!

Jambeaux, everyone!!! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. In fact, this is a special episode for us because we made it in to the land of double digits!!! And, we decided enter this realm in a big way by doing our "often teased, but never done" BIG DVC SHOW!!! On this episode, Danny and Kevin are joined by Danny's brother-in-law, Aaron. Aaron travelled with Danny during their trip in January 2013 and is also featured in our new upcoming mini-series, Field Reports...more on this later. 

It is our goal with this DVC show to give the potential buyer as much info to consider as we can so that hopefully you will make the right decision for your family. And we stress, every situation is different. This isn't your regular DVC show. We don't address the points system and how it works or the whole banking/borrowing thing. We feel other shows have covered it well and you as a potential buyer will have most likely gotten that information from somewhere on the internet. 

We fully explore topics such as the following:

  • fully considering your family situation
  • the annual dues and how are they are calculated and its relation to what home resort you purchase in to
  • the diminishing value of a DVC discount
  • cost-effective use of your points
  • the resale market vs. DVC
  • booking window, maid service, etc...

Now, if you want us to do a show on how the DVC works, let us know and we will do that for you. On this show, we are not just playing roles, but are actually living them. This is what I mean:

  • Danny is seriously considering the Disney Vacation Club
  • Kevin is in the Disney Vacation Club
  • Aaron has fully researched the Disney Vacation Club and has decided, at least for now, it is not the right decision for him and his family.

We will most likely do another show soon regarding the whole rent DVC points thing and other things we were not able to cover. So, if there is something that we didn’t get to or if you have a question regarding DVC that you would like us to explore, please don’t hesitate to email us. We want to hear from you. 

Now, the Field Reports!!! On this same Magic Our Way feed, we will release our Field Report series of mini-podcasts. These will not be a regularly occurring show as it will be recorded on our actual trips to a Disney park. We have a set of four shows ready for release ifor next week. Let us know what you think.

As always, if you like the show, please rate us and leave a review in the iTunes Store. We do appreciate you taking the time to do so. Also, you can find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@magicourway). Find some of our video statuses on Keek.com. If you have any suggestions or comments for the show, please do not hesitate to contact us at magicourway@gmail.com. We will be sure to read your email on the air, unless you tell us not to.

Jambeaux, everyone! Welcome to another episode of Magic Our Way. This is show #009 and we are quickly cruising CLOSER into double digit mode!!! This week’s show is Kevin’s trip report to Walt Disney World which took place during the week of Mardi Gras and Valentine’s Day. The Limited Time Magic promotion was called True Love Week. In regards to food, Kevin discusses his first time dining at the following: Olivia’s at the Old Key West Resort, the Hoop Dee Doo Revue at Fort Wilderness, and the Kona Cafe in the Polynesian Resort. Kevin professes his love for the lamb shank offering found at Gaston’s Tavern in the new part of Fantasyland. Following a challenge proposed during Danny’s trip report, Kevin ensured that he experience at least three new things during this visit. Well, he achieved that goal and definitely went beyond it.

Jambeaux. everyone!

Welcome to the 4th episode of Magic Our Way. This was supposed to be our Christmas show to be released on December 23, 2012. But, due to the flu, things got delayed. We still wanted to release this episode anyway because we found it to be one of our better shows. 

This week Kevin and Danny are joined by fellow QMark Productions podcasters, Eli and Mike from the And Another Thing Podcast...both of whom are Disney fans in their own right. For the Hub, we discuss rides that we never got a chance to visit because we were not inerested in them or we just never think to get around to it upon our visits. Also, we discuss the "one-and-done" attractions. These are those attractions that we have gone on once without feeling the need to repeat that experience again. For the Magic Our Way segment, we feature a piece of music arranged by New Orleanian, Kevin Caparotta. His arrangement of Jingle Bells can be heard performed by the Orlando-based vocal quartet, Return 2 Zero. Known by their Disney name, Four for a Dollar, Return 2 Zero used to be part of the preshow at the Beauty and the Beast Stage Show at Disney's Hollywood Studios, could have been be found in the Streets of America during the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and were performers at Sea World Orlando. 

Again, if you enjoy our show. please rate and leave us feedback in iTunes and using whatever social media you're into, let your friends know that you are listening to our show. You can also follow us on Twitter, Keek, and Facebook (@magicourway).
