Is it better to plan many months in advance? Or book a trip at the last minute? Either way it can be a lot of work, but that might just be part of the fun.
We have lots of things we hope and plan to do in 2013! We discuss them.
A couple related links:
- The ConnectiCon convention, where you can meet Jim Cummings, the voice of Darkwing Duck and many others
- That Guy with the Glasses, home of Nostalgia Critic and Nostalgia Chick, and many many other members of Team Awesome. They review Disney stuff here and there, but Jennifer’s personal favorite is the review of Baby Whatever.
If all goes as planned, by the time you’re reading this Jennifer will be at Walt Disney World for an impromptu, planned-on-short-notice solo trip! So of course we end up talking about chicken and waffles for at least 5 minutes.
Jennifer’s looked at the waffle sandwiches posted on Andy’s blog, and thinks the fruit one looks kinda nice, but still can’t get past the whole syrup-on-chicken issue. Will she try one on this trip? Only time will tell.
And all that talk during the show about how Jennifer will have nobody to hang out with for her whole trip? Well yeah . . . as she’s writing these show notes, she’s already got plans to get together with a friend one evening, and might even record a podcast episode with her. Thank you, internets!
If you’re going to be at Disneyland August 3-5, 2012, check out the Friends of the Magic Meet! We can’t be there ourselves, but we’ve donated Mickey Mouse chocolate bars.
Given their fondness for the High School Musical franchise, Jennifer and the Watchamacallit were absolutely not gonna miss Lemonade Mouth! And now they share their thoughts with you.
Jennifer’s also recently reviewed Lemonade Mouth in her Jentasmic! column on Studios Central. And if you’d like to learn more about Hayley Kiyoko, who plays our favorite character Stella, head on over to Racialicious, which gave Jennifer the heads up on this move in the first place.
And for anyone who worries that the Watchamacallit may have a warped understanding of the beginning of the United States’ involvement in World War II, you really need to watch Animal House. But this would do, for a start:
Bluto’s right. Psychotic, but right.
Jennifer loves to talk about Touring Plans and Lines! So even though our good friends in TestaVille (aka the website of The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World) could speak much more eloquently on the topic, when Trace had a few questions about how to use these products to squeeze the maximum number of attractions into a single August day at the Magic Kingdom, we just went with it.
While you’re at it, check out TDC 90, featuring Lines developer Henry Work.
And about those badges? Jennifer’s still a relative neophyte on Lines, but she sure is proud of her Nowhere in Particular badge. Here are her current stats and chats on the Lines app, where she’s known by the user name “kitty-chan.”
A new batch of Annie Leibovitz Disney dream portraits came out recently, and you know we have to talk about them! Looking at the scope and path of her career, these portraits (and the other Disney commissions that have proceeded them) are surely a departure.
This weeks show, taped prior to the beginning of the World Series (yes, that does play a part), is a discussion about the new Disney tores opening around the country and the Dallas location that Lisa and Trace will be visiting the following weekend… and then visiting and revisiting and visiting some more…. oh – and the Giants won!!
Wondering how we feel about Walt Disney World re-naming the TTA to the TTA Peoplemover?
Strangely enough, there’s an obscene part right in the middle somewheres, regarding Lotso. Keep the kids away, kthx. And we listen to audio from the Disneyland Peoplemover, which isn’t dirty at all, we promise.
