This week Annie is on vacation, so Dan brings in amazing guest host Rebecca Kelly, who has freed herself from the closet to fill in on the podcast in Dan's hour of need.

They end up with a pretty fun episode where Dan and Rebecca talk about people losing digits on Pirates of the Caribbean, the D23 Event coming up, the passing of a Disney Legend, and the reopening of Club 33.

Next they discuss the potential expansions of Soarin' and Toy Story Mania.

After that, Dan comes through on a promise from previous weeks, and they close out the episode with their main topic, the movies in the Disney animation lexicon that most need a sequel.

Listen for some special easter eggs throughout the ep.

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.

Lastly they discuss the attractions they think Walt would and wouldn't like if he was unfrozen today without any preparation for the technology and attractions of modern times.

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.

Before they get into it, though, they start with the news. This week they discuss the closing of American Idol Experice, the possibilities of a new Star Wars area, the new "Direct Check-in" at the resorts, the opening of a new Haunted Mansion shop, and Harrison Ford's on-set injury.

The 2nd half of the podcast is dedicated to talking about the Parkeology Blog, and of course the duo's epic attempt at the WDW 47, which is possibly the coolest thing ever.

Thanks to Shane and Ted for coming on!

Annie and Dan start the episode discussing the latest twitter kerfuffle, and railing against misogyny, which makes the end of the episode even more hilarious.

They tackle the news, which this week features discussions about the Mine Train, Planes: Fire and Rescue, Harambe Nights, the return of Festival of the Lion King, and Dan's vague discussion of Maleficent.

They then briefly have another Dan's Conspiracy Corner, where Dan breaks down the theory posed on Reddit that says Toy Story and The Walking Dead have the same plot.

Lastly they rate their sexiest Disney characters of each gender. It's the both genders part that makes it okay.

Annie and Danny spend a contentious episode discussing the news of the week, which this week includes the 24-Hour Disney Day (and the double-edged sword it is), the new Frozen on Ice show, the annoucement of the first Star Wars spinoff movie, Goofy's 82nd Birthday, and the speculation surrounding the land purchases around Disneyland and a potential third park in Anaheim.

For the main topic of the night, the two discuss Disney stars from each decade, and learn about their drug addictions, their taste in men, their failed and successful music careers, and their general awesomeness or lack thereof. We're looking at you, The Beef.
