Annie and Dan start this ep, like most eps, with a rundown of the weekly Disney news, this time including the crazy lines at Princess Fairytale Hall, a new "aviation themed" restaurant at Disney Springs, Disney being a great place to work, and also a 'disappointing place to visit', and the extended "wind down" hours created for some popular Epcot restaurants. 

Next they dive into their "Watchin' Stuff" segments where they go DEEP in the breakdown of the Dancing With the Stars Disney Themed Episode. 

Lastly, they each talk about Disney-Related YouTube clips they sent to each other, and they also talk (with at least some shame) about some Disney Porn that Dan found.

The three go through the Disney News of the week including Walt Disney World receipts saving men from jail, it's a small world's 50th anniversary, the animatronics wizardry of Garner Holt, the announced dates for the third Captain America flick, families of autistic children suing Disney, and more molesters.

Then the three pitch their ideas for what Disney should do with empty spaces at the park.

Last, Annie has Jake and Dan square off in a epic trivia battle. You'll have to listen to see who wins.

Lastly, Annie and Dan talk about what you get when you sign up for D23, and the distinct possibility that Dan isn't getting all he could be from the experience.

Annie and Dan are joined this week by the illustrious, illuminous Rebecca Kelly. Rebecca, known on Twitter as @RKellyWDW, is a very popular blogger and Disney travel agent.

The show starts with the trio discussing the news of the week, including the Magic Kingdom hub expansion, the Disneyland and WDW being open for 24 hours on Memorial Day, Disney cutting ties with Boy Scouts of America, Disney Movies Anywhere, Disney LEGOs, and the nature of the Tron Light-Cycle Roller Coaster in Disneyland Shanghai.

It's a fantastic episode and loads of fun. Annie and Dan hope to have Rebecca back on soon.

Dan and Annie's robot stand-in "Robot Annie" discuss the Disney news of the week, including increases in Disney World pricing, the Muppet Movie soundtrack on vinyl, how cranky people are about the Disneyland Subs being drained, the addition of Marvel and other non-Disney characters and more!

Then they do Dan's version of Disney Dummies, called "Cranky A-Holes" where people complain about just about everything, but especially the busses. Pretty much we disagree with the premise that the busses suck. They don't.

Lastly they discuss Disney World restaurants. Their favorite counter service places, their worst meal at WDW, and the restaurant they most want to try.

Did we mention Annie's a Robot?
