  • Candlelight Processional has longer lines than Maelstrom
  • Villains have children?! And they're in a Disney Channel movie?!!?!
  • Universal raises prices as if they were Disney.

Following that we have something really...special. Derek has prepared a dramatic reading of a brand new theme park version of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. Enjoy!

RETRO PTPD! Episode from the Week Ending October 25, 2013

This might be both our best and worst episode to date. We start normally (well, as normally as we can) with:

  • Fastpass Double Dipping
  • Starbucks Concept Art?
  • Frozen Characters
  • Universal Dining Plan
  • Space Mountain Comic Book??
Then we delve into a fully scripted, fully made-up, fully ridiculous version of the Jingle Cruise, the holiday overlay for the popular attraction. It really is quite fantastic if I do say so myself.

RETRO PTPD! Episode from the Week Ending October 18, 2013

This was one of the best episodes because Derek wasn't there. Brandon Glover from the Universal NOW! podcast filled in as we discussed:

  • Real, honest-to-goodness Avatar news!
  • Animal Kingdom…at night?!?!
  • Lord of the Rings coming to Disney parks?!?!?!?!
  • Glow with the Show.

RETRO PTPD! Episode from the Week Ending September 20, 2013

This was a long, weird episode that was not so current due to Brian traveling to Walt Disney World (and definitely not Universal). It was fun though and involved us making up news...more than normal anyway.

RETRO PTPD! Episode for the Week Ending September 6, 2013

First, this week’s news items as we go Through the Turnstiles and discuss:
  1. Cinderella Castle Villain Projections
  2. New Disney Parks Blog Meet. Was the guest list filtered?
  3. Universal fashion critics…they say no to police shirts
  4. Another Universal ride?
  5. New Epcot construction = better coffee
Then we take our first ever listener question, followed by the Fireworks, with another round of Defend Your Park.

RETRO PTPD! Episode for the Week Ending August 30, 2013

Welcome, welcome...all are welcome!

Since our show was born within the matrix that was the Podcast Network, we have decided to add some of our favorite (i.e. randomly selected) past shows to this feed so that you can sample (i.e. bang your head on a wall as you listen to) our work.

During this episode Derek and Brian discuss:

  • California Grill Menu
  • Disney Parks Blog Meetup Rules
  • Unleash the Villains
  • Tomorrowland…the Movie
  • Jurassic Park Expansion
Then we play a rousing game of Over / Under about:
  • Halloween Horror Nights drunk arrests
  • Avatarland opening year
  • New WDW Attractions
  • Epcot lagoon-side restaurants
  • More Tron movies?
