We know this episode, about what 2016 holds for Disney World, Universal Orlando, and the like, is a little late… er, well, three months late. We recorded it on time for the new year, but tech, health, and school stuff combined to delay the post-recording and publication work. The good news is that the cool additions we talk about on this episode are even closer to becoming reality. Among the rides and attractions we preview:
Universal’s new King Kong ride and the reopening of the improved Incredible Hulk Roller Coaster.
Epcot’s highly anticipated debut of Frozen Ever After, the new ride featuring Anna and Elsa.
Makeovers to Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
A couple of heart-stopping coasters at Sea World and Busch Gardens.
Hurdles behind us, we’ll be back to our regular recording schedule. Until then, check out what’s coming up at Florida’s theme parks in 2016. What are you most looking forward to? Drop us a line at email@example.com or hit us up on Twitter @mousemtn.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is an icon in Disney’s magical mountain range, with passengers careening through the “Wildest Ride in the Wilderness” for more than 30 years. On this episode, we’ll talk about Disney’s great ghost train, including its history, its variations, and where we think the ride stands in the Disney World pantheon. Hop aboard, and hold on to your hats and glasses!
Shows, shows, shows. What’s better than a Magic Kingdom show? How about a soft-opening, 24-hours-of-Disney style ride on a certain highly anticipated coaster featuring seven vertically challenged miners? This episode wraps up the Magic Kingdom’s “What’s Your Number” series, in which we rate the attractions on a scale from 1, being the worst, to 10, being the best. We also discuss ways that each attraction can improve, and what it would be rated after the improvement. In our last “What’s Your Number” episode, we rated the rides in Magic Kingdom’s Fantasyland and Adventureland. In this episode, we look at the shows throughout the Magic Kingdom, with a special bonus ride: the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Did the Dwarfs mine enough to make a place on our must-sees? Did the Country Bears maul Stitch and his Great Escape? Listen to find out!

On this episode of Mouse Mountaineers, we continue our “What’s Your Number” series, where we rate the WDW attractions on a scale of 1-10, then talk about how the Mouse House could make them better and what their ratings would be if they received our fantasy improvements. In Episode 7, we discussed the rides in the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland, Frontierland, and Liberty Square. This time we’re tackling Magic Kingdom ride ratings for Adventureland and Fantasyland. What are the Fantasyland rides that terrified us as kids? Listen and find out!

On this episode of Mouse Mountaineers, we continue the series we started in Episode 4, called “What’s Your Number?” where we rate attractions on a scale of 1-10. Then we give our opinions on how they could improve, and, since, realistically it’s impossible for every (or any) attraction to be a 10, we give our idea of each attraction’s numerical ceiling.
In episode 4, we took on Disney’s Hollywood Studios in one fell swoop. In this episode, we turn our attention to the Magic Kingdom. But, because there are so many attractions there, we break the park up a little bit and discuss only the rides in Tomorrowland, Frontierland, and Liberty Square. We’ll save the rides in Adventureland and Fantasyland, and the park’s shows, for future episodes.
How about you? What’s your number for MK’s three mountains? How high is the ceiling for Tomorrowland Speedway? Let us know by emailing us at mousemountaineers at gmail.com, or find us on Twitter @mousemtn. Thanks for listening!
