Our February show comes in just under the wire. We think it was worth the wait. Aside from our usual round up of Disney and theme park news, we've got an outstanding interview with Robbie Sherman (son of Disney legend Robert Sherman of the Sherman Brothers). Robbie was quite candid. The interview was conducted at the Disneyana Fan Club show and sale, so there's quite a bit of background noise, but it's all in good fun. 

 

 

HOSTS:

SPECIAL GUESTS:

  •  Robbie Sherman - A chip off the ol' Sherman block, who is currently promoting a book written by his father (who did not live to see the book published).

January is a great time to reflect on the year past and the year ahead. On this episode, we share our favorite and biggest theme park moments of 2013 and our predictions for 2014 and beyond. What will be our biggest story of 2013? Will it be the bust of Disney's MyMagic+, SeaWorld's Blackfish problem, Tony Baxter's retirement from Disney . . .?  Listen on to find out. Then we turn our attention to 2014 and what is already shaping up to be a magical year for Universal as Harry Potter 2.0 - Diagon Alley - prepares to open at the Orlando park. Plus, Disneyland to sink the Subs, Tomorrowland Star Wars projects, Major project problems and much, much more. We even have a cameo by Robert Coker about the project to save Walt Disney's birthplace in Chicago.

Did you hear the Disney angels singing hallelujah? For a long weekend in August, all the Disney stars aligned during Disney's big Comic-Con like event, the D23 Expo. Of course, MiceChat was there. We set up a huge booth and offered three days of Disney Celebrity meet and greets, giveaways, podcasts and more. But the big fish was Disney itself, who set up massive pavilions for Imagineering, Archives, Legends and more. In this show, we tie ropes around our waists and jump head first into the cave of Disney wonders. We make it back with quite a few gems to share.

    April turned into a huge news month for Disney and theme park fans. With the opening of Mystic Manor in Hong Kong Disneyland, pending attractions at Knott’s Berry Farm, SeaWorld and Universal Orlando, there’s almost too much good news to share. If only we had an industry insider to help us sort it all out . . . wait a minute . . . We do! Animatronics super genius, Garner Holt, stops by to discuss his involvement with new projects opening at Disney and Knott’s Berry Farm. Topics include:

    • Mystic Manor at Hong Kong Disneyland. The magical new attraction which will leave your chin on the floor.
    • Knott’s Berry Farm’s completely reinvented Timber Mountain Log Ride. It is one of the first log rides ever built. Now, through the magic of animatronics and Garner Holt, the ride has been completely rebuilt with all new thrills and effects.
    • Sudden Disneyland attraction closings. It was a shock when several of Disneyland’s major attractions were all closed at the same time for safety reasons. We investigate the reasons why.
    • Universal Hollywood’s massive 25 year evolution plan has been approved. What does that mean? Major new attractions and expansion.
    • Plus, MiceChat News, Gumball Rally, Reader questions, and the scoop on where’s Al.

    Hosts:

    Special guests: Garner Holt & Bill Butler of Garner Holt Productions Surprise guests:

    • John Waite (of Hurbut Amusement Company)
