  2. Just wanted to thank you all for helping me get through my “Disney Depression”. I recently got done with my Disney College Program at WDW in the fall. All I can think about is Disney and I’m pretty sure my family is getting sick of me talking about it, but you guys help me fill my Disney craving everytime I listen! Love all the updates and news about the parks and I can’t wait to go back one day ?

  3. Hi Guys! I recently found the Mouse Chat podcast and love listening to episodes on my drive to work. I went to WDW for my Honeymoon 7 years ago and have been hooked on the parks ever since. The customer service at the on-property hotels and the attention to detail in the parks are truly second to none. Even though we live in West Virginia, my wife and I have already planned 3 tips to WDW this year (yeah I know we need to become members of DVC- my wife reminds me of that at least a couple times a year).

    While planning our most recent trip, my wife suggested that we see the Hoop-De-Doo Review. I refused as the show doesn’t look very appealing, it is pricey, and it seems like it would take a lot of time and trouble to get to the location. That got me wondering- is there anything at WDW (shows, restaurants, hotels, attractions) that you guys flat out refuse to do? And if so, why? Thanks again for the great shows! And tell Sharpie I said Go Mountaineers!

  4. Hey mouse chat!

    I have recently stumbled upon your podcast and love it! We have a big family Disney trip planned in May. Other than ESPN zone on the boardwalk where do you recommend watching nba playoff games?! We are staying at AKL and I know it will be there in the room, but wanted to know if you have any other recommendations?

  5. I have to give some support to Chris. I was forced to ride the Haunted Mansion as a kid but kept my eyes closed the entire time. Last week I rode it for the first time as an adult (and kept my eyes opened…for most of the ride). I have to say that I, too, am spooked by the ride to this day. My level of scare tolerance doesn’t go far beyond Scooby-Doo re-runs. No shame, Chris. You’re not alone!
