Annie and Danny's FastPass Podcast

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.
