  1. Hello! I just recently found your podcast, so I am not sure if this has been asked and answered already, but I have a question concerning Fast passes. I used the My Disney Experience app to book fast passes for my families upcoming trip to Disney in May. My question is, do all of us have to have the same Fast pass selections, or can I do it individually. Reason being, my 5 year old can’t go on some of the rides that the older kids can. Also, our oldest hates roller coasters, so she doesn’t do Space Mountain and such. It seemed that I had to book all of us for the same Fast passes and I think that stinks. When I tried to delete the youngest from rides she is not tall enough to ride, it was going to delete all of my selections. Thanks for your help! Love the show by the way…I listen to and from work everyday now and it makes me more and more excited for our trip! Not that I wasn’t excited already – we go every year!

  3. Hey Mouse Chat! My name is Jack and I’m 15 years old. I just discovered you guys and I really love listening to the round-table discussions every week! And I also love your intro and outer song, the theme to Honey I Shrunk The Audience. Quick question: my family of four is going to Walt Disney World in July for two days and we are wondering which park other than the Magic Kingdom we should hit. Or if we should do a hopper pass and do both Epcot and Hollywood studios. We’ve been to Disneyland a couple of times since we live in California and we really love rides like California screaming, star tours, and Tower of terror. Thanks so much and keep up the awesome work.

    • Hey Jack,

      Wow, you are going to have so much fun at Walt Disney World. For two days you could do Magic Kingdom one day and then I would pick between Epcot and Animal Kingdom. Really you could spend two full days at the Magic Kingdom and not see everything but I know you want to get out and see at least part of another park.

      Animal Kingdom has Rivers of Light opening April 22, so you will hear more about that before your trip and will want to grab a fastpass for that before you go if you decide to do Animal Kingdom as your second park. Epcot might have Norway Open by July and you would want to get a fastpass for that if you decide on EPCOT. Also Soar in over the World should be open at EPCOT by then. DHS has Star Wars fireworks at night that will be going on too.

      Have fun,

  4. Quick question
    If you rent dvc points from a friend, after the reservation is made can you then purchase a dining plan & tickets on My Disney Expierence?
    By the way, I love the podcast. I always love having a new episode. Too bad, y’all have to have full time jobs & can’t just record podcasts all day.

    • Hi, Dana

      If you rent DVC points from a friend that person needs to purchase the dining plan for you, You would need to give that person your credit card, or money, etc to purchase the dining plan for you. If it’s a friend you should be ok. You can purchase park tickets separately at Disney World.

  5. Hi Mouse Chat! Love the podcast. Do you have advice for staying on property during the WDW Marathon weekend? I’m thinking of doing the Dopey Challenge (4 days of races). Usually stay at Pop Century but might try Epcot Resort Area since some races go around Boardwalk. Would love to hear you guys talk about tips for making the most of the WDW Marathon weekend. (Registration opens April 26!)

    • Hey Cheryl,

      When we stayed at WDW for the 5K at Animal Kingdom park, the key thing was transportation to the races. Only certain hotels came with transportation to the Disney races. We had our own car so it was not an issue for us, but if you don’t have a car, you are going to need to book a WDW resort with bus transportation to the event.

      Listen to this Mouse Chat about the race. But we do need to do a new show and cover this again.

  6. We will be visiting in the fall and have selected the deluxe dining plan so we can try all of the great signature restaurants. My question is about the dress code and what people actually wear. For example, it says jeans are acceptable, but will I feel out place while everyone around me is in a nice dress?

    • Hi Amy,

      You will love the Disney World signature restaurants. You will find what people wear is a mixed bag. At Epcot must people walk into dinner with what they had on all day at the park. Same thing for most dining at all the Disney World Parks. The resorts you might find people dressed up more. But still you will have people that are in short and a T-shirt. We dress up for dining at a Disney resort. We try and dress up for dining at dinner in the parks but sometimes we are at the park all day so you end up showing up in whatever you had on all day.

      It’s really up to you. Casual resort wear would be great for a nice signature meal.

      Have fun,

  7. Hi everyone! I’ve recently listened to most of your podcast episodes and love them! A while back, when discussing the new Disney Pixar Short Film Festival at Hollywood Studios, Steve mentioned that he had seen a Pixar Short at a conference at some point in time, but had never been able to find it again. He said that it was about clocks. I recently was on Netflix watching the Disney Short Films Compilation, and I believe that I saw the short he was talking about! Just wanted to let him know!

    • Thanks Kelly,

      I need to go find it on Netflix. I am sure my kids would love it and I would love to see it again.
      Thanks for letting me know.

  8. Hi Mouse chat this is Phil. Long time listener. I was just listening to your latest podcast and you were talking how about the two-year-old and the park hopper. I have two daughters one is 6 the other is 3 and I live about an hour away from Disney. One thing that I did with both daughters is take them to Disney for free. The last time I went I bought the Florida 4 day pass for myself and took my youngest daughter in for free since Disney does not charge for children under 3. I was talking to a Disney cast member one trip and they said that they are not allowed to ask the age of the child so if your child looks like they may be 3 or under you might be able to get them in without any questions asked. What are your thoughts on this?

  9. Maybe I’ve lost my mind…I just looked on Disneys website and they show that Jungle Cruise and Splash Mountain are NOT open for extra magic night hours. I know they weren’t for the morning but they have been in the evenings. Is this temporary?

  10. I love your podcast the best and I listen to 5 other Disney podcasts! I love the banter, the upbeat attitude, and even some of the negative comments because I am smart enough to know that Disney is not flawless. If one you had a bad experience on a ride or with a cast member or disliked the food but the others liked it then I realize it is just one person’s opinion. If the majority agree the I have to take that into account. I crap up at times at your ribbing each other. Now give me my swag. Ha ha
