Ep 136. The One with Candlelight Revisited


In the 136th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave revisit one of the most popular episodes from 2021 -- the Candlelight Processional.

After catching up a little on Christmas weekends -- including Jenn with a houseful of kids and Dave sending his lovely wife to Orlando for 24 hours -- they re-introduce the Candlelight Processional.

All the way back in episode 85, using the actual script from Epcot's Candlelight Processional, Jenn & Dave narrated the show, backed by the actual Epcot choir... and we thought it would be a great treat to present to you again!

Thanks so much to you, the listener and fan of the show, for all the love shown in 2022 and we cannot wait to bring you more magic in 2023!

Ep 135. The One with Christmas Gifts & Holiday Memories


In the 135th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave gear up for the final few days before Christmas! From running around town in random shopping to getting excited for the house building (a house update!!), both are ready for the big day - including Jenn's Christmas Vacation shirt and Dave's Chrisnizzle Sweatizzle. 

Amongst the news headlines, more train opening rumors... confirmed refurbishments for January in Disney World... and the returning princesses!

Dave gives a quick spoiler-free review of Avatar: The Way of Water, plus a reminder to Jenn that the first Avatar existed.

Then, the annual Disney Christmas Gifts segment -- a list of Disney themed items that are exorbitantly priced -- from posters to passports to toy trains to train wheels... incredibly cool and vintage collectables worth lots and lots of money, and available to you for purchase! 

And an entire quick chat about a Walt Disney signed flip book that we learn about as we talk about... it's not a napkin, apparently... 

And you can find the flip book (and it's very un-PC cover) here!

Finally, Jenn & Dave share some Christmas memories, both most recent and from their own childhoods - Jenn with her American Girl dolls then and low crowd Christmas recently, and Dave with his AT-AT then and Fastpasses more recently. 

A special Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all that celebrate, and thank you for listening to our show!

Ep 134. The One with Christmas on Both Coasts


In the 134th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave are back after a week off, and are here to talk Christmas previews and reviews and all the festiveness of the season.

After sharing the sure to be infamous Surrey Bike on the Boardwalk story, they dive into the news, which includes "Strange World" streaming soon... Te Fiti comes to Epcot... the new Ducktales Adventure... those CVS receipts on Disney merch... 

Then, Jenn & Dave give a quick review of the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, including the cookies and seeing Tron in testing and characters and fireworks and parades, and the crowd levels.

Plus, more Disney Christmas, with thoughts on the 2022 Epcot Cookie Stroll, some tips on navigating special diets and menu prices, and how to utilize the DAS pass with a Virtual Queue! 

Then Jenn gives her thoughts on Christmas on the West Coast, as she flew out to a special Agency Owner's special event, and to end the show, a shout out to Dakota, one of the best Jingle Cruise skippers in recent memory!
