Ep 34.5 You Can Find me on Main Street

November 21, 2017

This is one of our periodic mini-episodes featuring an interview with a supporter of the show who has an interesting story to tell to our listeners.  Tammy Tuckey is an actress, singer, writer, director and Emmy Award winning filmmaker who has hosted her own podcast since she was 14 years old.  Her “Tiara Talk Show” can be found on YouTube and iTunes and features occasional interviews with men and women behind some of our favorite Walt Disney World shows and attractions.

We talk to Tammy about her show and her many fascinating interviews with Disney legends, imagineers, actors and Cast Members current and former.  Tammy was responsible for connecting us with Corine Cook Gulli, the redhead from Horizons who attended our EPCOT35 event.

The primary reason for our chat with Tammy was to talk about her latest project: putting her vocal talents to good use recording an album of Disney songs including a duet with Ali Olmo, the voice behind the song “Two Brothers” in EPCOT’s “American Adventure” attraction.  We go over ways you can help make Tammy’s album a success.

Finally we spend a few minutes talking about the fascinating arcade game business Tammy’s family owns and operates in the Delaware Valley and discuss some of our favorite classic arcade games. http://www.tntamusements.com

This is a really fun chat.

Notes on a Time That Was Not Happy

Dreamflight

We take you back this month to Dreamflight! This attraction is one of the few that has the original layout, still to this day. The airline connection to WDW always seemed to be present back in our era, including giveaways, posters, and discounts. How has all the history for us on this one with George McGinnis and how he worked on lots of various attractions.

This episode paints an amazing picture of this attraction, where if you have never ridden it, you really get a sense to how it felt and looked. Delta had a major role in this attraction and we get into some old Delta airport decor, as part of the attraction has an airport built right in. If you have never heard about this aspect, you have to hear this!

The Barnstormer section is discussed in depth with Disney Imagineer Eric Vergarmi.  We get his insight throughout the episode, which is amazing to hear. He discusses creating the various show pieces, construction and even some things that we wish we could go look at now. Eric has tons of inside info that you won't want to miss.

We wrap up this episode with some commentary on some of our latest films.  Please take a look at these, as they are absolutely amazing! 

Next Month

  • Join us next month as we discuss more Christmas! Brian leads us on an adventure through the resorts and various Christmas things from WDW, that is a fan favorite. We alo. have another Art & Linda film release!

Ep 33.35 - Looking Back at Tomorrow - EPCOT35

October 9, 2017

Welcome to Episode 33.35 of the Retro Disney World Podcast: "Looking Back at Tomorrow" - We appreciate your support and hope you have been enjoying each and every episode. Be sure to check out some of our previous shows. This episode is unique in that we are recapping the entire Epcot35 weekend; from our event to the D23 events we attended. Join us as we take you back to the 35th anniversary of EPCOT Center, 2017.

Main Topic

Looking Back At Tomorrow

Photo-Sep-30-5-47-48-PM-e1507601384953-3So looking back, at Looking Back At Tomorrow, it almost seems like a blur. We had a major event planned that has taken months of planning, and it has come and gone. The time, energy and effort that went into making this entire night a success took many people and tons of phone calls. As you listen back to our previous episodes, you can see our various teasers and hints we would randomly drop.

Well on Saturday, September 30th, it all came together. We had some last minute additions, some fancy character visits and a cake that now has more photos than the original from EPCOT Center 20 years ago.

See our event opening film here.

In the episode, we recap some of our impressions and how we thought the night went overall. We also discuss the super rare character greeting, our pretzel situation and also take you behind the scenes on the now infamous EPCOT Center Fountain gift.

Looking Back At Tomorrow guests were lucky enough to not only meet Tom Nabbe, but as a day of surprise, Bob Gurr joined the party. We really enjoyed hosting everyone in the Living Seas Salon and hope you had a time to remember. As we close out this part of the show, we welcome you to upload your photos, videos and anything else from the event. Attendees will also be sent a survey soon, to help us plan our next big thing....

See our site for How's drink recipies!

D23 Events

In addition to our event, D23 hosted some pretty amazing fan events for EPCOT35. Brian, Todd & How were able to attend the daytime event in World Showcase. They discuss some highlights and answered questions during this recap episode.

After the morning, we hosted our walking tour with some fans of the show. This was a very relaxed and fun trip down memory lane where we all seemed to learn something. How, Brian, Todd and JT all were there to guide you around Future World and show off some different things that are still hanging around or only exist and remnants.

We all had the opportunity to attend the evening D23 event which featured three corporate lounges, food from all over EPCOT and an amazingly awesome surprise to end the night. We give you all the details on this amazingly special event which ended our EPCOT35 weekend.

Support RetroWDW

Since our event, we have had so many people asking how they can get their very own EPCOT Center Fountain model. This was a limited run, but we anticipated some people being interested in purchasing an extra after the event, or even somebody who could not attend wanting one.

In this episode, we explain our latest initiative to support RetroWDW, which can include your very own fountain model. This support goes to our episodes, website and future events. We genuinely thank you for listening, supporting us and also attending our events over the years.

This is a super fun side hobby that we all enjoy and wouldn't be able to accomplish anything without your continued listening and support.  Thank you again to everybody who listens, visits the site and also attends our events. For information on supporting - CLICK HERE

Ep 33 - Retro Food

September 11, 2017

We start off on the Seven Seas Lagoon & Bay Lake, taking you to each resort and discussing what has come and gone over the years. The offerings at time are very interesting and unique, while some are still the same to this day. Everybody brings out their old menus for this episode, refreshing your memories.The episode is really a must listen, mainly because it focuses on lots of great places and cuisine items you may have never heard of. We continue to the theme parks, which almost need their own episodes just to discuss the varying items. We hit on many random things and have a somewhat order, but like any discussion, we go off randomly reflecting on some memories. Hope you enjoy and let us know if you have any retro menus to share!"]

Welcome to Episode 33 of the Retro Disney World Podcast: "Retro Food" - We appreciate your support and hope you have been enjoying each and every episode. Be sure to check out some of our previous shows.

Todd kicks us off with the infamous Universe of Energy dog food pump for the lava. ProgressCity USA had some information on this, which we discuss. 

The Universe of Energy, which we found had always been planned for the actual spot it ended up. Well...We found and heard from some listeners that this isn't entirely true. Brian also discusses some initial problems with the big turntable for the ride vehicles. This story is so crazy and absolutely amazing it happened this way.

We also go over the audio poll from last month, Graces vs. Braces - Well we have the results and here is the final tally.
Faces - 1 vote
Graces - 8 votes
Braces - 14 votes

Mike wrote in and asked about our Tom Nabbe episode, regarding the monorail power systems. We clear up what we think Tom meant and how this was slightly confusing. Reese also wrote in, asking about the voice of 'Buzzy' and how it seemed to be two different people in the attraction compared to the pre-show. We all chime in on this to give our opinion.

Universe of Energy

DAUj1BZXcAQcEMnA very timely main topic this month for our listeners. With the closing of The Universe of Energy this month, we felt it was time to take you back to the original attraction from EPCOT Center. We dive right into the opening concepts, how everything works and of course each show scene. The sheer size of this attraction and all the details will amaze you as ride along in the original attraction.

We do hit on some comparisons to the current and now closed version with Ellen and Bill Nye, but this episode focuses mainly on the original show that ran from 1982-1996. If you never had the chance to enjoy the original, this will take you right back to the 80s and 90s with firsthand accounts and experiences.  Learn about the film direction, editing process and even how the animatronics area has changed over the years.  This truly is a classic that signifies the original magic of EPCOT.  We think you're really going to enjoy this journey back in time to The Universe of Energy.

We're now ready to tell you what you can expect on this very special evening and how to get tickets!

Mission To Mars

Mission to Mars Theater

We have quite the episode lined up for you this month, and it posts in conjunction with an amazingly rare film we acquired as well. You are in for a real treat as we discuss Flight to the Moon & Mission to Mars. How takes us through the entire history and also lets us know he absolutely hated this ride... Looking back, we hear about the unique things that are actually happening throughout both rides.

The origins of the show in Disneyland are discussed, which was titled Rocket to the Moon. TWA originally sponsored this, opening in 1955. The whole moon thing kind of lost excitement in Flight to the Moon, but before that, it did come to The Magic Kingdom. Mission to Mars came next, in 1975 and ran until 1981. We go into the various sponsorships of this attraction, all the way up to 1993. The first hand ride experiences given during this episode are absolutely amazing.

The Film

We will be releasing the Mission To Mars original film next week, so please check back for this amazing piece of history.

We start off discussing music from The Land; It seems to be all over the place and all flight based. Many songs are not connected to Disney and most have a connection to flight in some way.

Disney In Ohio writes us about the window above Casey's with a Chinese Restaurant. How discusses the origins of these windows and what it all means. The Main Street windows all have a great story, which we will continue to discuss in future episodes.

The Land - The Good Turn Menu - Front CoverMark wrote us about a menu, which is from The Land. He sent us some scans which led us to discuss Key West Pizza.

Main Topic

The Contemporary Resort in the 1970sThis month, we discuss the multiple original WDW Primetime Specials that aired on TV.  We go through these in chronological order and Todd gets us going with the Magic Kingdom Grand Opening Special. 

 The Magic Kingdom Grand Opening Special

This show aired on October 29, 1971 on NBC. The host was Julie Andrews and included a number of stars to round it all out. A great disco version of Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah is discussed as well as Bob Hope's standup in the Contemporary.

 The Opening of EPCOT Center

Brian hits us next with "The Opening of Epcot Center" - Danny Kaye is the main host of this special. This episode has tons of robots, Alan Shepard and even Drew Barrymore. Filled with great audio clips, you will get a great idea how this show goes. Brian lets us know that 50% of this show is Danny Kaye song/dance numbers with a little bit of stock EPCOT Center Footage. The ending of this show is one of the best parts to hear Brian describe, Danny Kaye is just an absolute mess!

The Disney-MGM Studios Grand Opening

JT brings us the two hour special on the Magical World of Disney, The Disney-MGM Studios Grand Opening. The cheese factor has been enhanced to the highest of level. This was a tough episode to sit through, but Michael Eisner kicks us off with Hollywood that never was. We go into the level of celebrity for this special and why they picked certain celebrities to be on the show. Some of the were safe bets and others were connected to the WDW company. Props, montages, and random celebrities are all over the place on this one.

The Muppets at Walt Disney World Special

The next and final special How discusses, is the Muppet's Special. Right after MGM Studios opened, the Muppet's were signed on to join. This special aired in May of 1990 and the reason was to introduce the Muppet's to the Disney family. Kermit is headed to a swamp which is located behind WDW and this also introduces Bean Bunny. All the characters are in this special; including a visit to EPCOT Center!
