Hey! I'm back and exhausted!
Before Mousefest I said that it was just another typical week here at WDW for me.
In a way it was since I had to work, but then again in a typical week I we usually spend about 6.5 hours playing in the Parks.  This week we spent more time playing than I did working, and I still worked my usual 40!

Thankfully the DPN Cool Kids are gone and I can get back to normal...
This week I give you my thoughts about Mousefest as I go thru the day by day, and wrap it up with the DPN More Fun than watching Plants Grow ride on the Land Boat Ride (Living with the Land)
Have Fun!

Hey!  This week The Bleepin Wife, Mimi (remember her?) and I head on over to one of the oldest (and newest) attractions  in Central Florida, Cypress Gardens Adventure Park.  If you have an annual pass to any theme park, you can get into Cypress Gardens for free up until December 24th for as many times as you'd like!

We had a great time and would highly recommend the park to anyone who wants a break from the norm.  It's very quaint, I mean incredibly quaint.  So take yer Disney AP over there and relax!

If you head on over to the DPN forums (you know the address by now!) there's a special added bonus feature over there in the ToV forums.

Woot! I'm back after a short haitus in Tallahassee (it was a good time if you're wondering...) WONDERS OF LIFE IS OPEN!!!!!!! So of course on day one (Sunday) I was there. Come along and learn where babies come from in the Making of Me, and then after you make a baby, 12 years later that baby grows up to be a child of the 80s in Cranium Command! Ok so the two attractions aren't really connected, but in my world they totally are! I learned a lot in the Making of Me... I'm so immature! Special guest is DrDuck and family from the DPN forums! (Great people!!!) As always, have fun!

This week we feature el Rio del Tiempo (the Mexico Boat Ride) with commentary by the Meandering Mouse, the Bleepin' Wife and myself. After that I discuss the joys of podcasting and meeting new people when they come to Visit WDW.
As a Speicla Request (not really...) I revisit one of the most disturbing areas in the Orlando area: The Old Town Wax Museum and Tower of London Experience.
My actual review of Finding Nemo the Musical is at the very end of the show. I played the audio on Thursday, but really didn't say anything!
Have fun!!!

It’s the Trapped on Vacation Halloween Spooktacular! 

This year there’s no Treehouse of Horror, and no Hall of Dead Residents.  My skin is still crawling from last year’s visit!  However I have Halloween treats up the Wazoo!

 

This week join the [censored] Wife and I as we experience a special Disney Spooky Experience for the first time ever! (Thanks to DPN Forum Member Artjaro for the suggestion!  After that The Vacation Fiancee (we weren’t married when she recorded it) fulfills a listener request and heads to The Bill and Ted show at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios!

 

Note:  The first half of the show is G rated at Disney, but the Bill and Ted Show is about the same rating as South Park, with strong language (A words and B words but no F words) and slightly offensive, but funny content!  Parents use discretion, I actually warn you before, so you have plenty of time to hit Pause. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

This week we head to the 11th annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.  Performing as part of the Eat to the Beat Series was Starship, either one of the best, or one of the worst bands of the last 20 years depending on your point of view.

This is probably among my favorite episodes to date, not because of the content, but because of that fact that the Vacation Fiancee and I had a great time listening, watching, and especially making fun of the Band.  Usually I don't listen to the entire show when I finish, but I had to listen to it all the way through once I started because I couldn't stop smiling!

The first song has loud levels, and I noticed it while recording, so when the song finished I stopped recording and lowered the levels a bit, so the rest of the set sounds much better!

Due to time constraints, I did little editing or cutting, and no bleeping whatsoever.   I really don't remember using any foul language, however the VF and I discussed some adult topics in regards to groupies of 80's bands.

 

Music at the end is by "The Chicken Nuggets"  you can find them on iTunes!

Hey everybody I'm back!

Took a week off due to my trip to Michigan (and a few other personal reasons...)  

This week I have some Audio from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) that I took when I landed.  Then I head over to Sea World and I take in the program that replaced Budweiser Beer School:  The Brew Masters Club.  What a great time!!!

I wrap it all up with a quick review of the International Food & Wine Festival, and I do mean QUICK!

Have fun!  Although if you're under 21, legally you can't listen.   However if you listen quick when the bouncer isn't looking you might just get away with it.  Slam it!!

Hi all,

Come along as the VF and I hang out at Ron Jon's Cape Caribe Resort in Cocoa Beach, then we head to Epcot to take in a set of Mariachi Cobre.  After that it's all about the World Famous Ron Jon Surf Shop.

Please note:  Because of my "pseudo-Vacation" last week, and my vacation to Michigan for the pre-wedding reception this weekend,  this show and next weeks show will be minimal.  The wedding's coming up quickly, and there's not going to be a ton of time to sit back and put the podcast together, so bear with me!  I'm still planning on doing something every week, just not a ton...Thanks!

Join me along with a cavalcade of celebrities, guest stars, (and John) as I count down the Top 3 (and more) Moments of the first year of ToV as voted on by a ton of listeners.  I had a great time putting this show together, and I hope that you enjoy it!

Hi all... just a quick little thing this week.
My iRiver died last week, so I had no new content. A new one should be here Tuesday, so that's good. Basically I'm sending out a request to ALL OF YOU to send me anything you'd like for the ToV anniversary episode next weekend (Deadline is Friday 9/1)
Mainly I'm borrowing a page from Ricky and Skipper Ben's book on Inside the Magic and asking you all for your top 3 ToV moments of the first year...
So start emailing me, calling me, sending me mp3s or leaving forum posts. Any way you want to reach me is fine with me, as long as you reach me!
Thanks everyone!

Sorry for the delay this week everyone! (See the post on the DPN that explains why...) This week we take a break from the Florida Summer heat as we enjoy all of the water rides at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure. The audio on Bluto's Bilge Rat Barges and Dudley Doright's Rip Saw Falls was taken in a waterproof bag. That means no binaural goodness, but the Jurassic Park segment had the good mics. (JP usually doesn't get as wet, but you can hear some staticy sounds at the end where a tiny drop of water got on the mic...) Hope you have fun and stay cool!

This week, I wrap up the Trapped on Vacation 3D Film Festival.  I'm sad to see it go because that meant that I'll have to actually plan my shows again!  The good news is that I'll probably be knocking more stuff off of "Earl's List."  in the upcoming weeks/months.  So pull out your 3D glasses one last time, sit back and relax and enjoy Mickey's Philharmagic (starring Donald Duck...?) 

After that we head out of the Disney Bubble and into the alternate universe known as Islands of Adventure to ride Dueling Dragons.  Hold tight to all of your personal belongings, this here's the wildest ride in the medievalness!

As always, have fun!

After some technical glitches, ToV 45 is finally up! This week I continue with the Trapped on Vacation 3D Film Festival as we hit Spiderman at UNiversal Studios Islands of Adventure. Then we investigate how the Mythos Restaurant can be the best Theme PArk Restaurant in the World if it's never open... After that we head to the Disney-MGM Studios (with a nod to Jeff from Houston with the travel directions) and hit Rock N Roller Coaster for a very interesting ride w/ no on ride audio and music... Then we wrap it all up on the Vacation Home Patio with a very Special Member of the DPN Family as he stops by with his Brother to visit after we spent the day at Typhoon Lagoon. Have fun!

Because it was my birthday this week I sat around the house and did nothing and loved it! So no new park audio this week, and that means that the 3D audio film festival is "paused" for a week. It'll return for next week's show because I'm heading out to play on Wednesday.
So this week I'm continuing my St. Augustine Ripley's Trip with some more messed up goodness. After that I pop back into the wayback machine and head to Episode 9 where I took in ET at Universal Studios. As quick reminder, I've included my ToV language policy that I laid down while wandering towards the Children's and ET area at USF. ;)
Congrats to DPN forum listener sbabs for winning the first ever Trapped on Vacation contest that no one even knew was happening! Back in the January 8th show I hid a message in the ID3 tags of the show that said "The first one to read this wins 5 Disney Dollars." It took 6 months, but someone found it! So you might want to read the tags because you never know if you'll find something cool! (Get Info under the File Menu in iTunes) I assure that the ducking and ending at perfect moments in my closing segment was unintentional. I just happened to pause and finish at exact the right times in the song to make it funny, so I left it in as is! (I always pop in the music into GarageBand after I rant so I never know how it's going to sound...) I was going to play the entire song over like I usually do w/o me talking, but the timing was just right so I didn't!

This week we take a take a look at Walt's predictions for entertainment and communication for 2006. After that we head to Universal Studios to take in our third movie in our 3D series, Shrek 3D. Shrek also happens to be my favorite out of all of the 3D movies in Orlando. It's just well done, and the detail in the queue is both well done and hilarious!
At the start, I promise audio from our trip to Ripley's Believe it or Not in St. Augustine, but I ran out of time and just tossed in a teaser at the end of one exhibit. I hate it when my shows are longer than 40 minutes. So I'll toss in more from Ripley's in the future. ;)

This week was both fun and relaxing at Disney's Animal Kingdom! Since I did MuppetVision 3D last week, I decided that I'm going to make a series of it and feature all of the 3D movies in Orlando over the next few weeks! So of course this week we took in It's Tough to Be a Bug! After that the Vacation Fiancee <-(see two E's!) and I wandered aimlessly around Animal Kingdom and the Pangani Jungle Trek. I hope you enjoy it, I had fun making it. Wandering aimlessly around DAK is among my favorite things to do. DAK isn't about the "attractions", it's more about what's between point A and point B.

I'm back with an all new show this week! Come with me as I complete a request from quite a few people, among them StrangeTikiGod from the DPN forums, as I go to MuppetVision 3D. Note: Jeff called "dibs" on the Muppet Pre-show, so this week I'm just playing the actual Show, and not the pre-show. Catch that on an upcoming episode of the Meandering Mouse Podcast!
After Muppetvision is perhaps the funniest moment in DPN History! Jeff from Houston meets Squirty The Snowman over at Winter Summerland Miniature Golf. The potty-mouthed women that you hear are both the Vacation Fiance and the Meandering Minnie, and SamZotto makes an appearance as well! I totally set Jeff up, and he took it hook line and sinker!
In between everything, are segments from New York Street at the Disney-MGM Studios (where I discover that it's a horrible place to record...) and the beach at Disney's Polynesian Resort!
Have fun!

This week I ran myself ragged all week.  When people visit, it's fun but hectic around here with little or no time to relax!  It was a super fun week though, I got to meet Lou from Beyond Main Street, Byron and SamZotto from the DPN Forums, as well as hanging out a ton with the Meandering Mouse and Meandering Minnie, Jeff and Sally.  To top it all off, I have family in town that arrived on Thursday!!!

So I needed a night to myself to just sit on the couch, watch some TV and just veg...  Thankfully podcasting has a great tradition borrowed from mainstream media called the "Best of Show."  Join me as I go way back into the ToV archives to show #3!  We ride Pooh and Pirates at the Magic Kingdom.  It's really weird to see how much my show has progressed.  The Pirates portion is among my favorite segments ever, I hope you enjoy it as well!

Have fun!

This week we avoid the parks because of the Easter holiday chaos. Instead of the normal stuff, we went to the historic Bok sanctuary. Enjoy some nature, hear some history and sit bact and enjoy the music of the bell tower! My favorite song is around 28:30 or so! After Bok Tower, we head over to Spook Hill where you can stop your car on a line and it'll roll backwards up a small hill. It's really an amazing place!

This week I continue the TOV Family Vacation and take the Vacation Munchkins on the Jungle Cruise and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin with a tiny segment from the Tomorrowland Indy Speedway tossed in for good measure! Two Notes:
1. The compression went wonky for the first coupla minutes, because I'm working on the "save the date" cards for the TOV Wedding, I wasn't able to go back and re-encode the show. It gets better as the show goes on, I promise!
B. First person who can tell me the inspiration for the intro wins a prize!

After that we take a ride on the Happiest Cruise that Ever Sailed on 'it's a small world' love it or hate it, it's a classic attraction!
Note: Goat Cheazy on the DPN Forums pointed out that as of last week I actually had 31 shows and I miscounted! So that makes this 32... I'm not cheating and skipping numbers... ;) Links

But through the magic of podcasting, Jeff's bringing us stuff from Disneyland, and I'm taking you to both Islands of Adventure and Tubing down a mountain in Keystone! For some weird and wacky reason, Jeff's segment has some compression that makes him a bit garbled. It wasn't like this when he sent it to me! Something happened with the compression that I really don't have time to fix here because I'm on vacation! (Please forgive me!) Have fun!

As far as I know, I'm the first podcast to feature ride throughs from both Expedition Everest at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Monsters Inc from Disney's California Adventure! I rode Everest last night during DAK Cast Previews, and Jeff rode Monsters Inc last week during soft opening.
So pull on your parka, open your closet door, and come along for the ride!

Trapped with Bill Paxton This week we head (again) to Universal Studios to take in one of the worst attractions in Orlando, which happens to be one of my favorites because of the cheesy and horrible narration by Bill Paxton. Yep, be prepared to "Ride it out!" as I take you to Twister! Note: I used GarageBand 3 to create this enhanced AAC podcast with notes and images in the file. If you have problems listening to it, and aren't using iTunes or an iPod, let me know and I'll switch it back to an MP3.
