We discuss Magic Meets, last year’s side trip to Hershey’s Chocolate World (the cows are Olympia, Gabby and Harmony – and thankfully NOT Crispy). Shockingly, we wander a bit off topic and discuss some favorite childhood treats! 

yummy! yummy! yummy! yummy!

crazy delicious!

crazy delicious!

YUCK!!

YUCK!!

We then hear a little “vintage” Disneyland audio, including what is listed as “Disneyland’s ‘Blast from the Past'” parade. This is what I found of corresponding name and date on youtube:

This video, clearly not the parade in its entirety, contains very little of the audio in the “official” recording we’ve included on this week’s show. The audio is intriguing as I am trying to imagine what characters are doing in some of these scenes. The video seems to show some of those characters I imagined on floats doing numbers running along before and after floats (note to DL parade developers: put the CHARACTERS on the floats, not the weird people dressed up like musical notes. hello??). Anyways, who knew there were Disney parades featuring the Three Stooges?

Also, The Disney Feud starts up this week – check out the Cats along with the Whatchamacallit and Mr. Matthew Hochberg next week! And you can find that Disney Dudes show here!

So, come on along now!

TDC#14: Disney-fication!

Have you looked at the airport security line and wished for a FastPass? Well sir, you just may be suffering from Disney-fication, the topic of this week’s show.

Also this week, we’re glad to bring you a ride through of the Hershey’s Chocolate World Chocolate Tour, recorded the day after MagicMeets. We had an alarming amount of fun on that attraction…so much so, that we wished we could take you all along with us! It’s also only fair to warn you: The attraction’s main theme is a disturbingly catchy ear worm, which you’re likely to find yourself humming, whether you like it or not. Sort of like, oh, this little boat ride I’ve been on a few times, featuring tiny little children with unfortunate joint problems, doomed to sing the same song over and over and over again.

I also must say, Lisa might think I am a bit mentally unstable. This is of course for many reasons, but not the least of them being the fact that I swear the last time I was at Hershey’s Chocolate World, there was a singing chef making custom cupcakes. So hey, Lisa, here’s that picture again, just to reassure you I’m still (perhaps tenuously) still grasping reality, at least by some measure of that word.

UPDATE: check out the visuals for the ride through here –    www.youtube.com/northernmousepodcast! Courtesy of the Northern Mouse Podcast! Thanks, Carlos!
