While Disneyland and Walt Disney World seem to have mostly the same experiences and rides as each other, only one attraction stands out as possibly being too insane to have existed in the first place, much less in a Disney Park. The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter was ... something else. Relying on sound design and physical effects rather than a…
 
Day one of D23 has passed, leaving loads of information to comb through. Join us as we pull out our favorite stories from yesterday and talk about how D23 has been going so far. We chat about the new ToonTown model, as well as the new Splash Mountain one, and more! This show is a bit time-sensitive, so we're posting it without doing the normal amou…
 
The D23 Showcase started today, so we broke down all the panels (or most of them, there were way more than expected!) and came up with some ideas as to what Disney will be announcing over the next three days. Get ready for some Disney fun! ---------------- Support the show! Join everyone over on our Patreon page Visit us on Etsy for the coolest Dis…
 
Even with the buildup to this year's D23 event, there was a steady stream of Disney News for us to wade through, and wade through it we did. Rummaging around this news cycle, we talk about the search for this year's planDisney panel (formally known as the Disney Moms Panel) is ramping up with a weird slogan, the 50th anniversary celebration for Wal…
 
Cornelius Vanderbilt Wood, known as "Woodie" to his friends (of which we surely are), was instrumental in the acquisition of the land Walt used for Disneyland, as well as the planning of the park, bringing sponsors onboard, and so much more. So why haven't we seen his window on Main Street? This week, Erik runs us through the sorted history of Wood…
 
Perhaps the biggest news out of the Walt Disney Company last week, was the announcement that Magic Key holders could finally renew their passes ... provided they accept the new terms and prices. We cover some kind of Twitter kerfuffle over the naming of the Main Street Electrical Parade, and also talk about a new dance craze that's sweeping Tokyo D…
 
The ever-changing landscape of Disneyland means there's always something new just around the corner. Today, we're turning around and looking back ... back at the things that used to be in the Park but have long since been removed. Erik runs us through the history of McDonald's in Disneyland, and then Bev has 5 attractions that have been replaced ov…
 
The term "Disney Adult" was created as a way to try and make people feel bad about the things they like, but what does it really mean? We thought it was about time we broke this term down to try and define what the differences are between just regular park fans and so-called Disney Adults, and why people feel the need to judge each other. Plus, Eri…
 
This week, Erik fills in for Jeremy at the In-Depth news desk, and we get right to work talking about .. concerts. It's relevant, I assure you. We move on to a wide range of interesting stories, from yet more fights in Walt Disney World, to Star Wars Land updates from Paris, and a whole lot more! ---------------- Support the show! Join everyone ove…
 
Walt Disney World has a lot to offer, but nothing can quite equal the majesty (or drama) of Epcot. It's a park like no other, serving up equal parts entertainment, education, and inebriation. On today's show, Taren takes us through the history of Epcot - what it was meant to be and what it ultimately became. Plus we dig into some Disneyland rumors,…
 
Another busy week for Disney News! We finally hear about some updates to Disneyland attractions, and Jeremy takes us through some Walt Disney world drama. We round out the show with some late-breaking news from the Disneyland sub-Reddit, but don't worry, he won't be leaving the show to get a job at a Disney Blog site ... ---------------- Support th…
 
Many Disney fans are at least generally familiar with the basics of Walt Disney's life. He was born in Chicago, moved to Marcelline, etc. But what if I told you that, in some corners of the world, these accounts are considered false? That many people believe Walt has a secret past, one that even the government has helped to keep quiet? Join us as w…
 
Weddings at Disney Parks are the stuff of dreams to many happy couples - from proposals to the actual ceremony and the celebrations afterwards, marriage and Disney are intertwined. however, that doesn't always equate to a happy ending, as Jeremy gives us not one but two wedding-related stories. We also chat about the executive shake-up at The Walt …
 
The sounds of Disney are pretty much everywhere. Commercials, video games, the radio - every corner of the world we live in. Which sounds bring us back to the parks every time we hear them, if only in our minds? The crew sat down to think about what songs or sounds take us on a microvacation whenever we hear them, which was a great way to isolate s…
 
Disney had a busy week and dropped some good announcements on us! Disney Plus is getting several new shows, but one of note to us is the new "Willow" series, a follow-up to the movie also called "Willow". Strange naming. Disneyland Paris gets Avengers Campus, someone goes on a $40k shopping spree, and more! ---------------- Support the show! Join e…
 
Recently, we sent Bev back to Disneyland to see if she could eat at the Parks for only $30 for the whole day, because the last time she had a budget she smashed it. We then talk about the parks in general and if things are "back to normal" there (they aren't), and if it still feels worth it to go with crowd levels the way they are. At the end of th…
 
Jeremy is back from a short jaunt across the country to visit the superior Disney Park, Disneyland. We hear a bit about his trials and tribulations navigating the virtual queue for World of Color, and then we jump into the Disney News, starting with a bit of info on the recent Disney earnings call for investors. If that's not exciting enough for yo…
 
Star Tours being in Tomorrowland has riled up many Disneyland fans over the last few decades - ourselves included. Hearing how that amazing ride came to be, however, did put the location into perspective for us. Also, look for our petition to make George Lucas an official Imagineer soon! ---------------- Support the show! Join everyone over on our …
 
We start off this week's show with a few lamentations on the new "artwork" proposed for the Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney (site of our 100th show). Spoiler alert: it's ... it's bad. Jeremy walks us through a couple of arrests that hit the news cycle over in Florida, and we end on a pretty big update on the Reedy Creek debacle curr…
 
Soarin' Over (insert location here) has been one of those rides that is fairly polarizing - either it's a must-ride or a walk-on-by - there's hardly an in-between. Terrence is one of those people who would rather give up churros indefinitely than ride any of Soarin's iterations, so who better to take us through the history of that ride than him? Be…
 
The Disney Parks merchandising arm has to keep swinging at all times, and by looking at some of the new merch that's out there, we believe it. Today we open the show by looking at two odd new items you can grab in Walt Disney World, and then we move right along to the rest of the topics. Jeremy brings us some good news for fans of sustainable power…
 
We all know that Disneyland is the best Disney park in the entire world, and it should be at the top of everyone's list at all times. But what about the lands within Disneyland? Where do those rank against one another? To help us answer this question, we are joined by Dan and Erik from The Supreme Resort to provide us a bit of guidance in creating …
 
It was a busy week for the Walt Disney Company, and Jason and Jeremy are here to cover the best news bites (and sips - have we done that joke before?). Lots of construction happening in Downtown Disney, over at the Disneyland Resort, which is semi-related to the proposed construction over at the Polynesian Hotel in WDW. We have dates on some new ac…
 
On this week's show we spotlight two very important pieces of Imagineering. Well, one important one and one is Turtle Talk With Crush. Up first, Bev dives deep into the internet and catches a wave to learn all about Turtle Talk With Crush and share that bounty of the Sea with all of us. Then, Jeremy finds his way around the soon-to-be demolished Po…
 
This week on In-Depth, we dig into the Disney News cycle and squeeze every detail we can out of these juicy bites (and sips)! We talk about new changes to New Orleans Square and the subsequent closure of a few attractions in that area, as well as the continuing saga of the Star Wars Galactic Cruiser Hotel. Join us for all this and more! -----------…
 
Adventures Through Inner Space existed in that perfect pocket of time when Disneyland was trying to be a mix of entertainment and education, at times mixing the two into an indistinguishable experience. Probably the last example of this phase of Tomorrowland, Inner Space still exists in the minds of fans as a truly unique ride and is still missed t…
 
It's well known that Disney borrows stories from other cultures to make them their own, but do they blatantly steal artwork from other artists? Say, a tiki drummer? At least one person seems to think so, and to get to the bottom of it all we invite Brian Schar from Cross Pond Law to discuss what a copyright means, what common use is, and if you can…
 
Main Street, USA treats you to tons of amazing sights, sounds, and experiences, even before you get into the heart of the Disneyland Park itself. One sometime overlooked aspect of the "old timey feel" of Main Street is the addition of the vehicles. On today's show, Taren takes us through the history of the Main Street Vehicles at the Disneyland Res…
 
Rounding up the Disney News this week, Jeremy and Jason are weighing in on whatever they can! We talk a bit about the backlash Peter Dinklage is facing after comments about the forthcoming "Snow White" reboot went around the internet. Comments made by CEO Bob Chapek were examined in great detail, because of course they were, and there were hints of…
 
Buying tickets to Disneyland is expensive. Adding food and drinks on top of that can really make or break your trip. We commandeered Bev's recent trip to Disneyland and somehow got her to agree to a set food budget for one day. Was she able to stick to it? Did she find that eating in the parks has gotten harder or easier? we also get her thoughts o…
 
Lots of little news bites on today's show. We talk about the new Moana series coming to Disney + in a year or so, a cool bourbon tasting happening in Disney Springs, and a bit about how actor Peter Dinklage is upset at the new Snow White reboot (yes, another one). We also wade into the recent Epcot drama Josh Gad stirred up and how Columbia should …
 
If you were walking around Tomorrowland in the early 1980's, chances are you have heard Josh Freese. Josh was in a teen band called "Polo" that frequented the Tomorrowland Terrace in those days. Son of the great Disneyland Band Leader Stan Freese, Josh left the adoring throngs of park goers behind to become a successful musician, playing in bands t…
 
2021 might be done with us, but we sure aren't done with it! On today's show, we kiss last year good-bye with our annual Year In Review. We give you the best and the worst of the Disney experience over twelve categories. Sometimes serious, sometimes borderline amusing, the Year In Review show is one we look forward to each January. ----------------…
 
Jeremy and Jason give you all the Disney News that any one person deserves to have! We chat about the fire recently at Walt Disney World, and how - of course - rumors around how the thing started were false. A family in El Paso gets a special Christmas gift from the Disney Company, the poorly-rated are being barred from renting on AirBnB, and more!…
 
Once again we are taking the last EarzUp! show of the year to goof off and celebrate not only Christmas, but our 200th episode! Taren came up with a fun game called "What the Bleep?", we read our letters to Santa Chapek, and our good friend Dave from DaveLandWeb stopped by to give us the lowdown on HolidayLand. Learn more about your ad choices. Vis…
 
We hit the Disney News feed and mine the place for only the best stories we can realistically comment on. The show kicks off with a rundown of the Disney Genie rollout at Disneyland this week, then moving swiftly to even more drama, this time surrounding a video advertising the Star Wars Galactic Cruiser hotel experience and dinner theater. Plus mo…
 
Throughout his 45+ years of his Disney Career, Don Dorsey has been involved with some of the greatest parades and nighttime spectaculars in park history. From America On Parade, to Illuminations: Reflections of Earth, Don had a helping hand in shaping our expectations of what a Disney show should be. We are thrilled to be able to spend time with hi…
 
To fill the perceived gap between their every-other-year event D23, the Walt Disney Company holds something called Destination D. It's a place for fans to get updates on their favorite parks, see what new merch is coming out, and generally feel good about their choice of Disney as a vacation spot. Jeremy and Jason dig through every announcement and…
 
There's lot of news to cover this week, in the lead up to Destination D,so let's get right into it. We start with the Metaverse - what it is, and what Disney might be doing poking its head around in it. Bob Chapek withdraws from his scheduled appearance at Destination D, sending the Disney News sites on edge. We also talk Hong Kong Disneyland, and …
 
Today on the show, we learn about Bev's trip to Disneyland, doing a few things for the first time, which is always fun to learn about. We have a new game called, "What's Better?", and we cover some Disney News. Plus, a bit about our rewatching of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Jason finally finishes his review of The Adventures of Ichabod and M…
 
Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters actually DOES have a history, believe it or not! Some of it goes back to Walt Disney World and a couple of extinct rides, and then somehow pops up in Disneyland. Taren brings us all the details, including a couple of songs we've never heard of before! Plus, we talk a bit about the MCU and how we're watching it again, a…
 
Spooky Season is here! We love Halloween a lot. So much that every year we sit down and each write our own, original scary story involving some aspect of the Disney Parks. This year is our third year for Spooky Stories, and it's always a real treat to read them to you. Plus we cover some Disney News, including a certain petition you may have heard …
 
Universal Studios Hollywood does NOT cost ten times more than Disneyland does per ride. There. We said it, so now hopefully we can move on from here. Jason and Jeremy are back with more Disney News! We talk about new entertainment options coming to Walt Disney World, plus the troubles they had with the new Disney Genie rollout, and more! Learn more…
 
Time for more Disney News, and Jason and Jeremy do their best to bring you the most important news about the Disney Parks they can find! On this week's episode, the boys talk about HarmonioUS, the new EPCOT show, and how much Jeremy loves it. Plus, the new Muppet's Haunted Mansion exhibit in Disneyland, the Candlelight Processional returns to Walt …
 
At the edge of Frontierland sits the wildest place to grab some food in Disneyland - The Golden Horseshoe! It's not the busiest of counter services, but it might be the best looking of them. Today on the show, Taren takes us through the history of The Golden Horseshoe, how it came to be, and the many different acts that have graced its stage. Plus …
 
Walt Disney World is a strange and wonderful place, especially for hardcore Disneyland Resort goers. On Bev's triumphant return from her first trip to WDW, we sit down and pick her brain on just how the parks differ from our home resort - from the rides to the food - and figure out what her first time was like. To accompany her, Jeremy sits in to f…
 
The Disney News never stops! On today's show, Jeremy and Jason cover all the latest exciting news floating around on the internet, starting with a lady who got kicked out of Disneyland for some disturbing behavior, which is always fun. We also go over newly announced changes coming to Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin in Disneyland, a stolen iPad causing…
 
Disney Parks are known for their details. It's what sets them apart from places like Six Flags. But with every ying there has to be a yang, so today on the show, we came up with 5 details we really hate about the Disneyland Resort, and 5 details we absolutely love about it! Plus, Dave from DaveLandWeb stopped by to give us a slideshow history lesso…
 
Welcome to another news-filled week, folks! There's lots of Disney News to cover today, and we start with an update on the Scarlett Johansson vs. Disney lawsuit, because it seems like those updates are coming weekly these days. We also cover the new Disney Stores opening in Target stores, Monorail issues in Disney World, and much more! ------------…
 
In part three of our focus on Walt's 9 Old Men, Terrence takes us through the career of Eric Larson. While his name might not be familiar to you, his work - and the works of the people he trained - will be. We also have an amazing SpectroTime! segment from Jeremy about the classic EPCOT attraction, "Food Rocks!", and we cannonball right into the dr…
