Podcast 83 – Disney Click Bait and Marvel Universe – We Aren’t Experts

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 83

Marvel Universe – We Clearly Aren’t Experts

We started off the episode talking about Disney community click bait.  You know them, the sites that have some slow news days and then they’re talking about horoscopes or opinions of the fans on Twitter?  That was how we started, but before long we ended up going down the path of the Marvel Universe.  On this episode it’s very clear that neither Francine OR Carrie are experts at anything Marvel related, in fact it’s probably quite embarrassing!  You want a good giggle? This is the podcast episode you should listen to.  If you’re a Marvel fan, Francine and Carrie apologize in advance!

Podcast 78 – Overrated or Underrated at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 78

Overrated or Underrated at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This week it’s all about Hollywood Studios and Carrie and I are taking a hard look at some of the attractions and food options.  As we go through them we share our opinions if they are overrated or underrated.

Given that Hollywood Studios is so popular right now with the new reservation system, we thought it was a good time to offer opinions about what’s inside the park.  With all the hype – is Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge worth the hassle?  What about Slinky Dog Dash?  Should you be racing there when you get to Toy Story Land?  Find out what we think on this episode of the podcast.

Podcast 77 – What we are thankful for in 2020

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 77

Remembering the good stuff of 2020

I think we can all agree that 2020 is not the year we originally planned.  We started off the year with big dreams, and it’s safe to say that meany didn’t turn out the way we hoped.  What is it they say about best laid plans?  Even if things didn’t go according to plan, there were many things that brought us Pixie Dust that we should be thankful for.  On this weeks episode (and the last of the year), Carrie and I reflect on what brought us joy in 2020.

Podcast 70 – Life lessons growing up in the Disney Renaissance era

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 70

Life lessons growing up in the Disney Renaissance era

On podcast episode 70 Carrie and Francine explore the Disney Renaissance era, did you know this was a thing?  This 10 year period between 1989 and 1999 brought about a whole new generation of Disney fans who were first introduced via movies like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin  and The Lion King.

According to Wikipedia “The Disney Renaissance is the period from 1989 to 1999 during which Walt Disney Feature Animation returned to producing critically and commercially successful animated films that were mostly based on well-known stories, much as the studio did during the era of Walt Disney during the 1930s to 1960s.”

While Carrie and Fran explore what it was like growing up during that time, guests Ashley and Cheryl share the life lessons they learned from the movies.  It’s a fun conversation about how they became Disney fans and how each generation views it differently.

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 64

Visiting the Magic Kingdom with a theme park warrior

What is a park warrior?

A park warrior visits the theme parks with intent and energy for a FULL day every day!  They waste no time sitting around like Carrie and Francine do!

On this episode we explore the Magic Kingdom with a real park warrior, our friend Anna.

Podcast 63 – Answering Your Questions Part 2

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 63

Answering Your Disney Questions Part 2

We had too many questions that we had to do a second episode to get through them all. How many t-shirts in my collection? We answer that and more!

Questions:

Dustins’ questions that we answered:

1) Just a guess…how many dole whips or LeFous brews have you had?

2) Ultimate disney dining day…Breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner and dessert.

3) Favourite Walt quote

4) Worst financial decision on a Disney vacation.

5) Three attractions you’ve never been on

6) Actual number of shirts in your collection

7) Favourite attraction POV video to watch during the pandemic

8) Favourite extinct parade

9) What attraction/experience/meal would you like to bring friends to?

Aydin’s Questions:

1) My question would be: if you were at WDW on your actual birthday and got to choose what to do all day, what would each of you choose to do? And would your podcast co-host enjoy doing all of those things with you?

2) You each get to choose 1 attraction, 1 snack, 1 table service meal and 1 beverage (WDW only – sorry Carrie and Jamie). What do you each choose?

Podcast 62 – Answering Your Questions!

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 62

Answering Your Disney Questions

You asked and we answered! We are reading your questions and sharing our thoughts. Anything from where to eat Thanksgiving dinner to how we met!

Questions:

Jessica asked:  Maybe you guys already said this but how did you and Carrie meet? What brought on the friendship?

Nikki asked: My question is, have you ever done the parks on Super Bowl Sunday? I have been told the park is practically empty due to American’s fanaticism over football. We were planning on going to WDW this year before your cruise. Until we found out Super Bowl was in Miami…which is where we sailed out of.

Bryce asked:  I have two questions! My wife and I are going to WDW over Thanksgiving. 1. How in the world do you get into Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom 2. What is the best place to eat Thanksgiving on Disney Property?

Sheila asked:  What/who is your favorite character

Tyler asked:  I would like to know how you feel with the new live action movies. From Cinderella to the new Mulan including lion king. For some this was the second age of Disney movies so the remakes can feel weird. Are they taking two steps forward and one step back or just cashing in on a name and story that’s already done.

Podcast 31 – Why the ‘Walt’ is important with Jeff Barnes

Pixie Dust Fan Disney Podcast Episode 31

Why the WALT in Walt Disney World is so important

Listen to Disney Chat With Pixie Dust Fan on Apple Podcasts, Google, Spotify and MORE

It has always been important to me that I call it Walt Disney World.  It became a pet peeve of mine when I would see blogs and social media posts referring to it as ‘Disney World’ – I always want to comment” don’t forget WALT”!  When I saw some top Disney executives call it ‘Disney World’ I started to doubt myself, is it really supposed to be Walt?  Who could I ask to clear this up for me?  The best person I knew to talk about the history of Walt would be Jeff Barnes!

Jeff Barnes is is the best-selling author of The Wisdom of Walt: Leadership Lessons from the Happiest Place on Earth and Beyond the Wisdom of Walt: Life Lessons from the Most Magical Place on Earth. Known as Dr. Disneyland, he teaches the only accredited college course on the History of Disneyland.  I think this makes him more than qualified to talk about this subject!

It was a blast talking to Jeff and hearing the stories and history of Walt and Roy – and their journey to Walt Disney World
