    Mousetalgia Episode 529: Holiday eats at Disneyland, Tour Garden memories

     

    This week, Mousetalgia takes you to the parks for some holiday dining updates. First, we review "Mickey's Tales of Adventure" Breakfast Buffet at Storyteller Cafe - omelets, prime rib and Froot Loops, oh my! We discuss the revised menu offerings and enhanced character interactions which have made the new buffet at the Grand Californian a popular dining destination. Plus, Becky offers a review of Thanksgiving Dinner at Storyteller Cafe and its underwhelming kids' menu for the biggest dining evening of the year. Also - fall crowds make park touring tricky, so we talk about making the most of your MaxPass. Then, Kristen eats her way through the Festival of the Holidays at Disney California Adventure - Holiday Ham Shanks, Cranberry Sangrias, Lox and Everything Bagel Nachos, Roasted Turkey Sliders, and more (including Peppermint Ice Cream Sundaes and a rainbow of churros!) Plus - listener reports from "Mickey: The True Original Exhibition" and "The Art of Mary Poppins Returns" exhibit at Disneyland, and our favorite VIP Tour Guide Barbara stops by with some holiday memories from the Tour Garden!

    Mousetalgia Episode 528: Destination D - Celebrating Mickey Mouse, Wreck it Ralph 2

    Mousetalgia's correspondent Lindsey reports from D23's Destination D, and we bring you the scoop on the latest news and all the happenings from the Disney fan event that was held at the Walt Disney World Contemporary Resort on November 16, 17 and 18. Lindsey discusses the exciting panels, the intriguing exhibits, the exclusive merchandise, and the exciting opportunities she had to interview some of the special guests at the event, including Bret Iwan and Bill Farmer, the official voices of Mickey Mouse and Goofy, and Becky Cline, the director of the Walt Disney Archives. Then, Kristen and Jeff wreck the podcast and discuss Disney's latest animated film "Wreck it Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet." We discuss the cultural impact of the film, the impact of culture on the film, and all those Easter Eggs! Kristen also reveals that somehow, she didn't know the film was going to feature a gaggle of Disney princesses despite the fact that we're pretty sure we'd even mentioned it before on the show. Plus - Jeff mentions Mickey the inclusive Mouse, Kristen upcycles board games, Becky questions the Lion King, and Dave talks about the next generation of Star Wars fans.

    Mousetalgia Episode 526: Happy 90th Birthday, Mickey Mouse!

    Mickey Mouse turns 90 on November 18, and we have a spectacular special show for you to celebrate the occasion! In honor of #Mickey90, all of the Mousetalgia family of podcasts have come together to honor the Mouse who started it all. Author/historian/D23 Contributor Jim Fanning joins Team Mousetalgia this week to talk through all nine decades of Mickey Mouse, from the original pie-eyed superstar to the new animated shorts that have brought Mickey full-circle back to his slapstick roots. We talk animation, the Mickey Mouse clubs, Mickey Mouse collectibles, Mickey as a cultural icon, and more. Also - Mousetalgia Minute's Tina and Julia talk about past Mickey Mouse's birthday celebrations; Dateline Mousetalgia's Nicole and Jenn Diz drop by to talk about finding Mickey throughout the Disneyland Resort, and we talk about Mickey through the ages. (Happy birthday to Minnie, too!) Plus - we offer a way to help victims of California's Camp Fire, and we remember the legendary Stan Lee.
