Annie and Danny's FastPass Podcast

Annie and Dan return to actual Disney-related content, by going through the recent Disney news items. They discuss the possible property values at Walt Disney World, which leads into the revelation that Dan would like to be a despot.

Among other things, they talk about the five new dining "concepts" coming at Disney Springs, which include something from Wolfgang Puck, something from Jose Andres, and something that Dan described as a 'hipster masturbation fantasy'.

Annie brings back the "One Star Reviews" segment, which includes a review where a lady really hates this one particular rock. 

Lastly, they both watched Pixar's Cars 3, and they go into a pretty detailed, spoiler-laden review of the flick.

Annie and Dan record without a plan for the 2nd week in a row, and it's unclear if it's laziness, or just more fun. We'll see if the pattern continues moving forward.

For this ep, they talk about the movie going experience, and go very deep on Tom Cruise and The Mummy reboot, as well as the birth of "Dark Universe" or whatever the heck that's supposed to be.

They talk a little about some upcoming Disney movies, and then briefly talk about the possible tours he can take on his October visit to Walt Disney World, and the under-discussed Disney World miniature golf courses.

Annie and Dan prepare even less than usual this week, and completely wing an episode with no pre-planning. They still manage to talk about Pirates of the Caribbean, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the new Pandora area at Animal Kingdom.

Dan asks Annie for her most quotable Disney movie, the minutia of Annie's day, Captain Phillips memes, popular current trailers, they have a game of 20 Question about what movie Annie bought out of the discount bin at Walgreens...but mostly they talk about Annie's weird burp noises.

Before diving into the Disney news, Annie and Dan discuss a very bizarre incident Dan experienced during his lunch break. Then they discuss the Walt Disney World Hall of Presidents, and what should be done with it. They discuss Zootopia being the subject of a copyright lawsuit. They talk about how Lularoe is taking over the world, and how Disney will be live-streaming the dedication of Pandoraland on their blog.

Once the news is done, Dan and Annie celebrate "Graduation Season" by handing out some Disney Hero Superlatives such as "Best Smile" and "Best Dressed". Or maybe entirely different ones. Check it out!

Annie and Dan return and discuss the additional Disney Cruise Line locations and routes, the utterly pointless observation deck at Tomorrowland for the 'occasional fireworks', and the length and quality of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival.

Then Dan wastes everyone's time by going through a pointless list from MiceChat.

After that nonsense, they talk about Beauty and the Beast, finally, Johnny Depp's mounting insanity, and the early word on Pandora.

They finish up with some listener questions.

Annie and Dan return and discuss the Disney news of the day, including the relative merits of the Disney Dining Plan, whether 'free' really means 'free', the Splash Mountain refurb this fall, Epcot's refillable wine glass, the expansion of Club 33, and the possible added scene from The Last Jedi into Star Tours.

Then they talk about the rumors surrounding the Great Movie Ride... maybe soon to become the Great Mickey Ride?

Lastly they discuss Dan's exploits in Disneyland this past weekend.

Annie and Dan keep the small talk to the scatalogical, though also Disney-related.

Once through the unpleasantness, they kick off the Great Disney March Madness bracket, going through every matchup. Many casualties. Some really big upsets, and we think a true, legitimate winner. 

See some epic match-ups involving your favorites like Mary Poppins, Kermit the Frog, Pin Trading, and the Boardwalk Epcot Entrance.

Listen to find out who won, and tweet at us to let us know how dumb we are.

They spend the full episode compiling a bracket of 64 competitors. 16 each from movies, characters, park attractions, and miscellaneous Disney things.

Now that the competitors have been chosen, Dan will put together a bracket for the official Disney March Madness Tournament

Also, Dan thinks this is episode 99. it's not.

Then they discuss Dan's DVC dilemma, Annie asks a few "Disney Would You Rather"s, and Dan talks about John Stamos' Disney Bounding.

Annie and Dan are joined by Jake from the famous Mickey Mutineers Podcast to break down the insanity that is the 1944 Disney Animation Classic, The Three Caballeros.

The movie features Donald Duck, who appears to be visited by a possessed film projector that takes him into an existential, and surreal, journey into the culture of South and Central America. There's also something called The Aracuan, which is either a witch or a demon. 

The film is the inspiration of The Gran Fiesta Tour at the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot, so it has that going for it. 

It also may be Jake's favorite movie, by the way he talks about it, which could explain some things.
