Episode 107: Transformation Station - All Change at Walt Disney World - March 2024
This month, for our Great British Mickey Waffle Mid-month show, the team of Wafflers, led by Claire, made some new friends - or as they like to call their own community - ‘Ohana. The team of Matt and Krystle from Married to Disney Addict Podcast and community joined us for a chat that, quite frankly, could have kept going for hours and hours and hours! Claire had joined Matt and Krystle for one of their shows back in December and had a load of fun, so we invited them to join us to waffle about some Disney history, and future. First of all though, as newcomers to our community we extended the warm and fuzzy hug of welcome, known only as the Carousel of Questions. It’s been a couple of years since this feature was retired - maybe we should bring it back for new guests? Let us know in the comments if you think we should.  After that we chatted about some classic attractions that have long since hung up their offerings to guests, and whether we as a group believe that what has replaced them is better… or worse?  Is Frozen Ever After an improvement on Maelstrom?  Is Toy Story Land a better experience than the classic MGM Studios Backlot Tour?  Could Creations ever be preferable to Mouse Gear?  And the one we found the hardest - is Baseline Tap House an adequate replacement for the glory and oasis that was The Writer’s Stop? We discuss attractions, restaurants, shopping and even some night-time spectaculars and decide if the newer offerings are a step up, or a step down from the previous inhabitants of that space. It left the team with a very long list that we didn’t get round to covering, so let us know if we didn’t talk about your favourite and perhaps we can discuss it on a future show?! You can find Married to a Disney Addict at www.marriedtoadisneyaddict.com, and all on all socials @marriedtoadisneyaddict  We look forward to welcoming Matt and Krystle back for a future episode. 🌐 Visit our website: ⁠https://www.gbmickeywaffle.com⁠ 📺 YouTube: ⁠https://www.youtube.com/TheGreatBritishMickeyWaffle⁠ 📘 Facebook: ⁠https://www.facebook.com/gbmickeywaffle⁠ 📸 Instagram: ⁠https://www.instagram.com/gbmickeywaffle⁠ 🧵Threads: https://threads.net/@gbmickeywaffle

Episode 97: From Deluxe to Value - Rediscovering the Magic - October 2023
October 15th has arrived very quickly and as we rush towards the Christmas season, we stop off briefly, to have a chat with Sean Lee about his recent return to Walt Disney World. Claire is in charge, with her glamorous assistants Ben and John, and true to form, she breaks all the rules by bringing back “for one show only”, the Great British Mickey Waffle Carousel of Questions.  Sean is subjected to the classic lines of enquiry, which range from snacks to car parks, and of course - the battle of the Animal Kingdom shows.  We had a great chat with Sean, whom is a regular in the chat on our Wafflers’ Wednesday shows, about his trip to WDW in September, where he stayed in a value resort for the first time; having always previously enjoyed DVC or deluxe resorts. We covered all the essential trip highlights from attractions to food, parks to food, resorts to food… you get the picture!  Sean also popped up to Universal for the first time ever - join us for the show on Youtube or via your podcast provider of choice to see whether he managed to overcome any anxiety around the coasters and rides and if he enjoyed it as much (or more) than Walt Disney World.
