Ep 205. The One with Sandals in Jamaica


In the 205th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave are back from spending a few days in the beautiful (and hot) Caribbean with a few of their travel agent co-horts.

While Jenn is prepping to head down to Disney World, d$ literally spent about 10 h
ours there, and reviews his Uber problems, his mad dash through Epcot, and a few hours at Magic Kingdom.

The Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party prices are finally out, and we give you all the news on Tiana's Bayou Adventure opening and virtual queue info! 

Then, a recap of the trip down to Sandals Negril on the west coast of Jamaica -- discussing the food, the rooms, the excursions and more. Plus a look at the Sandals South Coast resort and Beaches Negril resort next door.

And, how do you fill 7 days at Sandal resort? Plus, why Club Mobay is a MUST on your way out.

Ep 204. The One with the Resort Talk


In the 204th episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave are a day away (at the recording) from heading to the Caribbean -- Sandals Negril Resort in Jamaica, to be exact, on a travel agent group.

Before they split, however, they cover the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party news released with party dates and details (prices were not out at time of recording, but are available now).

Then, we present the audio of the most recent Travel With the Stars, the YouTube show hosted by Jenn herself, featuring Dave, with fellow agents Jamie and Emily.  It's a fun conversation about the Disney resorts, and so many of the things to do from Pop Century resort  to Grand Floridian, and all in between.

Plus, the infamous Surrey Bike ride of 2022... 

Dave & Jenn will be back next week with a full report on Sandals in Jamaica as well!

Ep 203. The One with Dr. Disneyland


In the 203rd episode of The Main Street Electrical Podcast, Jenn & Dave talk a little Disneyland today... and what better to way to do so than to have on an actual expert in such things -- Dr Jeffery Barnes, author, speaker, traveler, and super fun guy joins the show! 

Jenn, Dave, and Jeff have a great discussion first on what created his love for Disneyland itself, then dive into a little Walt history -- plus a take on the legendary tale of "Mortimer/Mickey on the train" that perhaps wasn't quite as true as we make it out to be.

We also compare the major Walt bios, the Gabler vs Thomas versions, as well as looking forward to Disneyland and what might happen in the upcoming expansion (if? when?)

Finally, a quick round of The Wheel of Magical Random to find a few faves like Hidden Mickeys and rides we wished we could be on.  

Dr. Jeffery Barnes is one of the foremost authorities on Walt Disney and the secrets to Walt's success, and the author of "The Wisdom of Walt" and "Beyond the Wisdom of Walt", and travels the country and world teaching such things.
