Episode 29 – The Great Debate! Stay on Property or Not??

by Rod Wheaton

August 014Welcome to show #29!  In this week’s show first we talk about a brochure released this week that may indicate that the Sorcerer Mickey hat may be disappearing from Hollywood Studios!  Is it a slip-up by Disney, or an intentional attention grabber?  Next we get into the great and eternal debate:  Is it worth it to stay on property or not?  As Disney purists, we always stay on property, but it can’t be denied that there are unbelievable deals to be  had off property, including one my own dad found for next week’s trip.  So now join Jake and I; and sit back and enjoy the show, because if you’re a Disney Geek…You’re among friends here!

Does this brochure slip up mean the Sorcerer’s Hat is disappearing from Hollywood Studios?

by Rod Wheaton

Attractionsmagazine.com is reporting that a new brochure just released for Walt Disney World is revealing that the giant sorcerers hat is being removed from Hollywood Studios.

Many Disney fans have long considered the big that to be an eyesore, and something that distracts from the original view down Hollywood Boulevard that heads toward the Chinese theater housing the great movie ride.  Attractions magazine reached out to Disney officials and were told that they had nothing to announce at this time.  The same bro sure seems to show other updated illustrations, such as widened courtyard area in front of Cinderella’s Castle at the Magic Kingdom.

What do you think? Is it time for the hat to go? Was it simply a printers mistake? Or do you think Disney released this brochure knowing that fans would catch the change and catch air of what was to come? Leave your comment below!

Episode 28 – Change, Change, Change!!

by Rod Wheaton

Viking Mouse Ears

They say the only thing that stays the same is that NOTHING stays the same…and that’s sure been the case in WDW with all the changes that have been announced this month!  Think about it: Goodbye to Off Kilter, Maelstrom, and now The Backlot Studio Tour!  In all the years I’ve been a Disney fan, tho, I’ve never seen anything more polarizing than the closing of Maelstrom!  There’s petitions, online protests, forums and twitter trends are blowing up.  On this week’s show, we talk not just bout Maelstrom and Backlot Studio Tour, but why their closing WILL NOT be the end of WDW as we know it!  We’ll recall some long gone and fondly remembered attractions that were, surprisingly, replaced by attractions that were even better loved.  Is it possible that Disney will create an attraction that will be even more popular than Maelstrom?  Come along with us and enjoy the show, because if you’re a Disney Geek, you’re among friends here!
