MiceChat Podcast 11 - The Geeky Side of Disney

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.

    MiceChat Podcast 7 - This Animatronic Life

    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.

    MiceChat Podcast 4: Disney Synergy -December

    Synergy. No, it isn't a pavilion in Epcot, it isn't a high octane gasoline, it isn't an energy drink (though that might be a great name for one), it's the opportunity to make more money by combining efforts of two or more distinct things. In the case of Disney, there's been a lot of unique synergy going on recently. We'll be talking about a lot of that in today's Podcase. Join Al Lutz, Dusty Sage and Doug Barnes as we explore:

    - Disney's owership of Marvel Comics and how that may influence Tomorrowland

    - Disney's purchase of Lucas Films and what that means for the theme parks, merchandise and so much more.

    - How Disney California Adventure's Cars Land has been so successful that it may soon be cloned in Florida and Japan.

    Plus, lots of news, rumors and gossip that is sure to make you smile.
