New year, same podcast! We're back after our holiday hiatus, just try not to get Steve going about politics, please. There's some new Disney news, we talk Wandavision and what we did over the holidays!
ALL THE ANNOUNCEMENTS. We discuss all the Disney+ and movie announcements from the 2020 Disney Investors Meeting where they announced a TON of new shows coming to Disney+ and a bunch of movie news as well. So much to discuss, we had to get the help of Franky!
SPOILER WARNING: We discuss, with spoilers, the latest episodes of the Mandalorian. This discussion takes place in the second half of the episode with a warning prior to us getting into the discussion.The DisTwits are back with another discussion of the Baby Yoda Show! We loosen our belts after Thanksgiving talk a little about what we did over the holiday weekend, somehow start talking about the Grinch, before Steve once again decides to just take over the conversation by going on and on and...
We welcome Jeff Gordon (Twitter: @jeffgordonla) onto the podcast to talk about his food drive for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County!!Link: https://www.yourfooddrive.org/drive.php?Disneyfans4good
Alex takes a trip to Dollywood! I'm sure he had a great time right? We also struggle to find news to talk about, although we are pretty excited about a certain upcoming refurbishment in the Magic Kingdom's Liberty Square. We also pay homage to a different Alex, the quintessential quiz-master of our time.,
We take a trip back in time to talk about the joys of recording songs off the radio to play on our walkmans on long road trips. But like most road trips it seems like it takes forever to get where we're going. Also we talk park layoffs and what we can do to help!Disney Tourist Blog Food drive: https://www.feedhopenow.org/site/TR/VirtualFoodDrive/General?team_id=2591&pg=team&fr_id=1230
Because of this podcast, my house now smells like bacon! So while we discuss the merits of vegetarian Bacon and await word from Christina and Matt over whether The Boy approves, we take some time to go to that other place (#WhatsAUniversal) where they had a Horror Nights-lite event over the weekend. We also talk about the potential return of Fastpasses, and the "too speeecy" episodes of Muppets Now!
We get a little sidetracked on our way to talking about our Disneyland bucket lists, as we take a hard left turn and head to New York City for the glitz and glamour of Broadway in this latest episode of Disney at a Distance!
The crew is back as we sit down to talk about those things we haven't done at the most Magical Place in the World. Wait you mean there are still things we haven't done? We focus on the Walt Disney World Resort in the first of our series on our Disney Parks Bucket lists!
Alex gets back from a vacation in Florida's armpit with a report on how to use your kids as sharkbait. Wait, is that right? Close enough... We also delve into the political when Dr. Uncle Steve keeps getting sidetracked and we talk about various closures and project delays at Disney and #whatsauniversal.
We get a history lesson (sort of) from the Distwits in the wake of their watching of Hamilton and Steve talks about Disney World's grand reopening even as the pandemic continues to rage through Florida!
We've revived our old Drunken Distwits series, now as a podcast. We've moved away from the round table approach, to more of a commentary track. This Podcast is intended to be consumed while watching the film it refers to. If watched alone, you'll find a lot of long pauses and gaps and comments that don't really make sense. We really hope you enjoy this approach as we watch the biggest Musical of the generation, Hamilton, now on Disney Plus, and hopefully we'll be back soon with another...
We bring on special guests Kevin and Franky to talk about their experiences for Pride month, but get a little distracted when Kevin brings up Coffee and we start discussing the resorts at Walt Disney World reopening.
We bring Victoria and Jordyn onto the podcast to talk about their experiences in their communities and what it means to be a black woman in America today and the Black Lives Matter movement. A very important, not to be missed episode.
The Distwits finally have some news to discuss as Shanghai prepares to reopen with social distancing measures in place! What do we think of the rules and is this a peek at things to come for the parks in the US? Also Disney Springs is preparing to reopen in Florida! Plenty to unpack on this episode of Disney at a Distance!
