Ep 119. The One with the Disney Princesses


In the 119th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave celebrate World Princess Week!  We aren't sure if its a Disney thing or it's an actual thing thing, but either way, we are turning our attention to the Disney characters that wear the crowns, have the castles, fire the arrows, swing the swords, cook the beignets, read the books, screech into the well, befriend the critters, and more.

The show kicks off with more Costa Rica prep from Jenn, as she is headed out soon, while d$ gets to help create a magical moment for a fellow Upon a Star Agent... plus get more shirts and more LEGOs. Because he needs that.

Then, a look at the the demise of H20 toiletries, and then a look at the tweaks made to Park Pass Reservations.

Finally, the Disney Princesses take centerstage... Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Tiana, Moana, Merida, Pocahontas, Mulan, and the newest Princess-elect, Raya... we chat about the history of "The Disney Princess" label, the characters that were princesses before (and were replaced), and each one added.

Then, we just list our fave Disney Princess movies... songs... attractions based around them... who has the best sidekicks... who has the best Prince... and characters that could be -- and maybe should be -- an official Disney princess.

And our thoughts on whether Leia should be an official Disney Princess....

Ep 118. The One with the Coasters


In the 118th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave revisit one of the first episodes of the cast... the one with roller coasters. 

First up, some chatter about Jenn's upcoming trip to Costa Rica, and Dave's obsession with more Disney Lego... and Jenn gives an update on the house, plus a Bougie Closet Preview

The news topics include the Boardwalk Deli opening... what the new Electrical Parade Magic Band+ might mean for upcoming parades (including a prediction from Dave)... Disneyland Magic Key (annual pass) renewals... Epcot Tours coming back... and a random sidebar about The Weeknd's Blinding Lights and face surgery mask. 

And finally, a look at Episode 15 of the podcast, when Jenn & Dave gave their top 10 roller coasters, before they were able to ride Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure, and before VelociCoaster or Guardians even opened.  They give their revised Top Tens, each with 3 that dropped out of the initial list, the three new coasters added in, and others moving up and down the charts.

Ep 117. The One with the Disney Wish


In the 117th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave review the incredibly magical experience of Disney's newest ship, The Wish!  However... while Jenn just got off the ship a few weeks ago, Dave hasn't been on a Disney cruise since 2004. 

Thus, bring in Quasi Producer Heather, aka The Moana Mom, who also disembarked The Disney Wish a mere week ago.  After briefly chatting about upcoming stays and resort roulette, plus a Heather mini-rant about clickbait websites, Dave opens up the discussion between Jenn and Heather all about the ship.

Starting out with boarding day, the muster drill, when to check in, where to stay the day before, and getting signed up for all the fun stuff, the conversation shifts to restaurant experiences like Marvel and Frozen, the pool areas, the cabins, and Heather talks about what it's like for families, while Jenn speaks about adult vacations on the ship.

Ep 116. The One with Coronado Springs


In the 116th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave come to the show with a large handful of news topics, a salute to a recently lost legend, and a good look at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. 

Jenn talks a little about her travel planning -- Costa Rica coming soon! -- and Dave recounts his day spent in Nashville, not only for Universal training, but also at The Grand Ole Opry and the overpriced (but worth it) tour.

Then, the news topics are large in number - Give Kids the World is full back... Genie+ (non)changes... Blizzard Beach's continued closure... Disneyland's Christmas plans... the upcoming D23 and possible new ships... an invite we are expecting from Josh D'Amaro... Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Dessert Party...

Plus a Jenn Builds a Home update!

And then a look at the moderate resort Coronado Resort -- an overview of the resort itself, the size, the pros, the cons, the places to eat, the theming, and much more... 

Finally, a salute to Pat Carroll, the Disney Icon who passed this week.
