Annie and Dan return to their movie reviews or recaps or whatever you wanna call them. 

During the episode they go into great detail over the 1953 Classic, and discuss among other things, topless mermaids, bitches who be crazy, Pan being a jerk to everyone, Captain Hook being a great villain, along with the usual arguments over racism and misogyny in old school Disney Classics.

Watch the flick and follow along with them as they vaguely follow the order of the actual movie.

This week, Annie and Dan start off with the Frozen News of the Week, as usual. This time touching on the Frozen Summer Fun event, how the Head Animator of Frozen is leaving the studio, and Dan bitches about the Special Features on the Frozen BluRay.

In other news, they discuss the re-opening of the Alice in Wonderland ride at Disneyland, the Magical Express lowering their “unaccompanied minors” age, the prequel book for the “Descendants” show on The Disney Channel, and Duffy the Bear’s new friend Gelatoni the Cat.

They WERE going to do a Dan’s Conspiracy Corner about Up, but Annie’s never seen it, so they’re postponing until after her vacation.

Annie and Dan open this podcast with some world cup soccer discussion, and then after dicking around for a few minutes on that, they dive in to the Disney News of the Week, as is their habit.

This week's news features items ranging from Harrison Ford's injury on Star Wars, Frozen being literally everywhere still, Cinderella's Royal Table being refurbished, MousePlanet's list of Top Disney Hotel Restaurants, The Lion King's 20th Anniversary, casting announcements for the weird Lion King reboot, and more.

Next they briefly discuss a "Disney Dummy", probably Dan's favorite one ever.

This week Annie and Dan go in depth about all kinds of things to the point they don't even get to their main topic.

They start, as usual, with the news. This week touching on such subjects as the insanely long lines for the Frozen meet-and-greets, the potential of a new Frozen Ride, the fury over the changes Disney is making to Into the Woods, the closure of the Wilderness Lodge pool, special "Rares" at the Villains Unleashed Event, and the silly shit Studios is doing now that Star Wars weekends are over.

After the news, they dive into some listener questions, and further discussion of Annie's trip planning and then they talk for a long time about dining reservations, and basically call half the country "rubes".

Annie and Dan are joined this week by fantastic Disney bloggers Shane and Ted from who came on to talk about the one-year anniversary of their epic quest to ride all 47 rides at Walt Disney World.
