TDC #148: Touring Plans and Lines

Trace

Trace: A Disney Dude For Sure!

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.”

We close out the show this week with a wonderful song by Jonathan Coulton. If you’ve only heard Code Monkey or Still Alive, you totally owe it to yourself to check out a few more of his tunes. And since we ended the podcast with a song that seems like it should be happy but is totally sad, let’s now treat you to the inverse: “I Feel Fantastic.”

TDC #118: Peoplemover Returns! Sort of.

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.

TDC# 87 Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

This week, we revisit Marathon weekend, wherein it actually WAS freezing! The Cats discuss suggestions for what you can and can’t do in the parks (Disney Portrait Photographers, are you listening?), the Cat#2 shares a spin around the park, and to the Orlando Airport. And she swears a lot.

TDC #74: A Day at Disneyland Paris

The Watchamacallit is an Eclaireur Spatial! But it looks like Space Eclair to our American eyes.

Can you imagine spending a day with Jennifer and the Watchamacallit at Disneyland Paris? Well, you’ll surely be able to after you listen to this week’s show!

We can’t help lapsing into internet memes from time to time, so here’s a couple tidbits to clue you in on what we’re talking about:

And for the record: The Watchamacallit’s toe was just fine. Honest.

TDC #63: Carousel of Feminist Progress

Ever thought about the role of women in Carousel of Progress, or other Disney Parks attractions? Well, if not, we’ve got some fodder for thought in this week’s show, in which we discuss this beloved ride from a feminist perspective.

And, well, oops! Jennifer goofed when she said Rosey Grier was a 1970s football player….that career ended in the 1960s, which doesn’t make him any less cool or feminist, just older! And why do we call him a feminist? Well, for one thing, he recorded the song you’ve heard on the show, from the TV special Free to Be You ande Me, encouraging boys to let their feelings show and not be trapped in that tired old stereotype that boys can’t cry. Plus, the man could do a mean needlepoint, I tell you.


It’s Alright to Cry

And hey, since we’ve all been reminiscing so much about Michael Jackson lately, how about this clip, also from Free to Be You and Me?
