In the 75th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave spend an hour on a number of topics, including more Disney trips and new Stacey shirts, Funko Schwarma pops and whether Fear is a Factor for Jenn.

Plus a special shoutout to a great listener.

They give the latest on the launch of Genie+ this week, what worked, what didn't, and what they are already changing. 

Then, Jenn & Dave take a long look at Epcot's World Showcase, doing a virtual walk through each country. Which has the best shops? Which ones have amazing restaurants? Which country tops (and bottoms) each list? 

Plus, what pavilion would host a Cars 2 ride, or feature the Muppets... and which country needs a Tigger ride (not the one you think!)

Ep 73. The One with the 50th Recap


In the 73rd episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave have returned from the event 50 years in the making -- the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World!

They both were amongst some of their favorite people, two of which join the show to discuss the weekend, with quasi producer Heather, aka The Moana Mom, and fellow agent and Disney Mom, Disney Geek Kyla 

The foursome discuss a little quick news - the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser news, new Magicbands, and other fun things, then dive right in to a full review of the weekend.

They give their thoughts on both Magic Kingdom's and Epcot's new nighttime fireworks shows... Space 220 dining... Remy's Ratatouille Adventure... plus a play by play recap of the 3a (we must be lonely) arrival at the Magic Kingdom line, complete with the Inflatable Chair Mafia blow up chairs, Kyla's popcorn regrets, Space 220, Heather's big D'Amaro moments, and so much more.

And Kyla's review of Animal Kingdom's KiteTails, which itself is worth the entire show. 

It's a longer show this time, but full of stories from four people who LOVE the Disney Magic.
