About Us

Mouse-Mountaineers

In short, we’re a dad and son who are 30 years apart in chronological age, but a lot closer in emotional maturity, and who live far too close to Disney World for what’s good for us. We love running the parks and hitting the rides, sure, but we also love talking about everything little and large that comes up during our trips. We try to share some of that in our podcast. Our episodes run the gamut of Disney topics, from what counter service restaurants we like to the latest Disney World rumors. Learn a little about us with this quick and dirty q-and-a.

Three Wishes for Disney

1: Do away with Fastpass+.

2: Install Iron Man roller coaster in either Hollywood Studios’ Backlot or rip out Tomorrowland Speedway and build with a futuristic feel.

3: Do a total redo of Space Mountain, turning it into something akin to Space Mountain: Mission 2 in Disneyland Paris with loops, an accelerated launch, and a faster top speed.

When I’m not at Disney:

I’m in 6th grade, go to classes during the week and find time to manage a full-blown Clash of Clans base (and hopefully do videos with it soon), sleep, work out, and read.

Ride: Splash Mountain.

Treat: Pineapple Dolewhip Float.

Character: Mickey, ‘cuz I’m old-school that way.

Princess: Look, I’m 41… naming a favorite princess would make me feel a little pervy. But if you put a gun to my head, I guess I’d say Belle.

Either/Or

Monorail or Ferryboat: Ferryboat, because I can always find a place to sit down.

Toy Story Midway Mania or Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin: Buzz Lightyear, because I can ride it without a 4-hour wait.

Three Wishes for Disney

1: Do away with Fastpass+ and restore old Fastpass.

2: Disney drops the crazy idea of Avatarland and fulfills the park’s destiny of a Beastly Kingdom.

3: If I use two wishes on restoring old Fastpass, will it come true?

When I’m not at Disney:

I hang out with Tai, I read (mainly history and fiction), and I plan my next Disney trip.
