382 Disney Dream Girls Podcasy

Welcome to the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 382, for Sunday 24th October 2021. If you want to listen via this page, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio, or any good podcast catching app.

On this week's podcast, we share Michelle's 2022 trip plans and lament over the demise of Primeval Whirl.

2022 Trip Announcement

So the plans have been made! Caroline will be joining me as we head to Walt Disney World in August 2022!

We will have 11 nights at Pop Century together and the planning begins in earnest! Send along any top tips as it was 2019 the last time I was at WDW!

Primeval Whirl

This steel Wild Mouse coaster, opened on 31st March 2002 at Disney's Animal Kingdom in DinoLand USA. Why did we love it? Well unless you have small children, who would want to play in the Bone Yard or spin on TriceraTop Spin there wasn't much else to do!

It was a ride that got you giggling as you swirled up and down the track. It was always an attraction I would head to do as the queues were never too long and it was an unsual coaster for Walt Disney World due to its spinning nature. 

We will definately miss it - will you?

This new program will:
• Focus on guest autonomy

380 Happy 50th Magic Kingdom

Welcome to the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 380, for Sunday 3rd October 2021.

If you want to listen via this page, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio, or any good podcast catching app.
On this week's show, we celebrate the Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday but with the celebration there was a sad goodbye to Happily Ever After and a hello to Harmonious. 
As we as our usual chat, our lovely friend - Anthony Markham - popped by to share details on his recent trip to Walt Disney World with a focus on his views on the newest attraction there!
Both of us have had the pleasure to ride the Disneyland Paris version of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure but Anthony's views were somewhat different to ours so listen in and let us know what you think!
However, one thing that Anthony did adore was the food and of course the beverages that came as a part of the addition to the France pavillion. 
Savoury
Sweet

379 - The Past, Present and The Out of This World

 

Welcome to the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 379, for Sunday 26th September 2021.

If you want to listen via this page, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio, or any good podcast catching app.On this weeks show we discuss changes to attractions, take a look back in time as well as get all spacey.

Changes
Over at Disneyland they are in the process of 'updating' Roger Rabbits Car Toon Spin ride over in Toon Town.

Jessica Rabbit is no longer in the trunk of the car and will be taking on a new detective based role within the attraction. What do you think to these changes? Good, bad or simply just needed?

Carnation Cafe Re-opens
Staying in Disneyland we have seen the re-opening of one of Michelle's favourite eating establishments Carnation Cafe.

Although the re-opening menu is a little scaled back to what we are used to we can all agree it is great to see this back operating.

But did you know that this was originally called Carnation Cafe Ice-cream Parlour when it opened in 1955, and was sponsored by of course, Carnation. We take a look back at the original menu to see what was on offer, have a giggle at the prices and compare to today's offerings.

Eating in Space
And from the past we jettison off into the future over at Epcot's brand new (and long time coming) restaurant Space 220 which opened on 20th September rather appropriately. The restaurant is set a virtual 220 miles above Epcot within the Centauri Space Station and can be reached by way of a 'space elevator'.

Featuring fixed price lunch and dinner menus with some out of this world naming! Blue Moon Cauliflower perhaps or maybe Terra-bolognese or the children's choice of Space-Ghetti!!!!

And of course some equally fun named speciality drinks too...Stargarita anyone? Or how about Celestial Cosmopolitan.

This can all be enjoyed while gazing out into space and taking in the comings and goings of a space station. Keep a look out for a spacedog, surfing astronaut and of course hidden Mickeys.
