S1E20: Disney Potpourri Sans One Dillo

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE HERE!

This week on Theme Park Thursday… Jen is out sick! Hence, this podcast episode is broken down into three parts:

1) A stream of consciousness monologue by Frank about one of his favorite meet and greet locations during his time as a cast member (as voted on via Twitter).

2) A 2018 conversation between Frank and @DillosDiz Fact Checker Mel Dale about music within the Disney Parks.*

3) A 2018 conversation between Jen and her pals David and Steve, who attended the Magic Kingdom Moonlight Magic!*

*The latter two were featured on Theme Park Thursday editions of The Improviser’s Guide Podcast in 2018.

Theme composed by Matt Harvey.

Jen’s (Delayed) Top Ten

I really enjoy coming up with ideas on the podcast, saying we’re going to do them and then not do them.

On the Season 1, Episode 15 episode of Theme Park Thursday, we talked about some rules that may need to be made with regards to ranking every Walt Disney World attraction. Frank came through and you can read his Top 10 list of his favorite attractions by clicking here!

By the Season 1, Episode 17 episode, we were still talking about it. After much discussion, I was able to narrow it down. HOWever, there were still changes made from the episode yesterday, to today’s post.

So, here it is. My list. Subject to change. Still debating I don’t even know what at this point.

No follow up with the ranking as it was discussed at length on the episodes. Here we go…..

10. Space Mountain

9. Carousel of Progress

8. Splash Mountain

7. Thunder Mountain

6. Spaceship Earth

5. Haunted Mansion

4. Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel

3. Small World

2. Muppet Vision 3-D

1. PeopleMover

S1E16: Not at All Jen’s Birthday, Only Talking Dillos.

LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE HERE!

Jen didn’t want to talk about her birthday so, of course, this episode of Theme Park Thursday with @DillosDiz is the complete opposite of that. Members of the Disney Twitter Family reach out to send their (wait for it) Wishes… in between discussions about fireworks, merchandise, quiet pools, favorite characters, bucket list items, the Top Ten blogs, and more about Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

Frank’s Top Ten Today!

On the Season 1, Episode 15 edition of Theme Park Thursday, we talked about some rules that may need to be made with regards to ranking every Walt Disney World attraction. This led to making the decision to blog our own Top 10 favorite attractions.

Here’s mine… always subject to change…My Top Ten Favorite WDW Attractions Today!

Just missing the cut: Expedition Everest, Toy Story Mania, Star Tours, Spaceship Earth, Kilimanjaro Safari

Not Applicable: Flight of Passage

10. Thunder Mountain: I thought this would be ranked in the Top 6, but fell to 10 when all was said and done. I actually really love waiting in line for this ride. Might be my favorite queue. Thunder is most likely the attraction to fluctuate up and down this list.

9. It’s a Small World: The first of the ‘classic’ attractions. It’s a Dillos family favorite, sure, and the history of the ride holds great weight in this – perhaps polarizing – decision.

8. Slinky Dog Dash: this snuck on to the list. I’ve only been on once and it’s the ride I look most forward to riding again (adding ‘again’ due to FOP). The coaster exceeded my expectations in a way I had not anticipated.

7. Haunted Mansion: the attraction that has gained the most traction the past ten years, enhanced by visiting Phantom Manor in Disneyland Paris five years ago. Ongoing appreciation for a complete experience start to finish.

6. MuppetVision 3D: for 26 years, THE ‘must do’. The most quotable attraction in all four parks.

5. Pirates of the Caribbean: on Theme Park Thursday, I said the bridge between this attraction and Haunted Mansion has narrowed. The CHANGEs over the years (mainly the movie character additions) haven’t made me frown, but it’s lost some of that I-Don’t-Know-What.

4. Peoplemover: if you’re a Walt Disney World lover, and find yourself just staring admirably at your surroundings… then the Peoplemover is everything!

3. Space Mountain: Whooooooo! Probably my favorite ride (just not my favorite attraction).

2. Tower of Terror: one night working late for parade rehearsals, we got to be test patients on the first update to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (1 1/2? FACT CHECK!!!). I fell in love with the ride on that night and, though it’s been sometime since I’ve partaken, it’s still near and dear to my heart.

1. Splash Mountain: perhaps it opened at the perfect time in my life, but this attraction is in my opinion the perfect blend of all attractions: dark ride, thrill ride, classic Disney.

Surely, this will spark some spirited debate on next week’s Theme Park Thursday!

I await the judgements and the verdicts! Comment below or tweet me!
