Wow! Now, We Have 400 Reasons to Celebrate!

What a milestone we celebrate today, folks!  With this post, the WDW Main Street Podcast celebrates its 400th episode!

Wow!  400?!  Are you kidding me?  Who can talk that much for that long?  Um, the answer to that question will reveal itself to you in just a few seconds.

Naturally, I didn’t personally participate in all 400 shows.  Not even close.  Neither has John Peters, for that matter.  Even our retired colleague – Dennis Conroy – came on board well after the podcast was born.

Who can talk that much for that long?  The show’s founder and host, of course.  Yes, it is Doug Davis who has that incredible “gift of gab”.

Doug and I at Laguna Bar!

Main Street was his brain-child.  He’s hosted or co-hosted every single episode.  In truth, it is Doug that deserves all the credit for this feat!  Congratulations, Doug!  What a phenomenal accomplishment!

My friends, join John and myself, as we congratulate Doug.  Attend our little party.  Step into the WDW Main Street Pub and listen to …

Interview with Josh and Jenna from Resort TV 1!

Join Doug and I as we welcome very special guests – Josh and Jenna from Resort TV 1 – into the WDW Main Street Pub!

Flashback Photos of the Week: New England Lobster Roll – Crew’s Cup Lounge

Another mixed bag of nuts today, my friends.  There are podcasts.  There are polls.  There are lobster rolls!  Hah!  See what I did there?

Actually, there are podcasts.  First, catch Doug Davis and our resident Cast Member – John Peters – as they tackle another round of “First Thing You Think Of”!

What’s that, you ask?  Well, listen to find out.  In fact, play along!  Catch the action at …

Episode #386 – First Thing You Think Of!

Next, Doug spent this past Sunday entertaining some very special guests at the Main Street Pub.

Jen and Scott from Happiest Vlogs On Earth join Doug to discuss all of the latest news from around Walt Disney World.  Listen to …

Episode #387 – Our Weekly News!

Did you vote in yesterday’s “Wild Card” poll?  No?  I have great news, then!  The poll is still open!  VOTE at …

The Top 20 is Set! The “Wild Card” Contenders are Here!

Finally, one of your favorite Food & Wine dishes is Hops & Barley’s New England Lobster Roll.  Me?  I’ve never been a fan.  Why?

2016’s “loaded?” Lobster Roll

Each time I’ve ordered it, I was left with an unsatisfied stomach – the serving size can be puny! – and an empty wallet!  One of the most expensive dishes at the festival, it was $7.75 in 2016.

Also on the pricey side, Crew’s Cup Lounge provides, what I think is, a much better version of the dish.

Served chilled and on a butter-toasted roll, it delivers a much-more generous portion than World Showcase.  Is it worth its $19 price tag?  Hmm.

Folks, my advice is this … pass by Food & Wine’s lobster roll.  Whether at Crew’s Cup or another restaurant on property, you’re likely to find a more-delicious roll at a much-better value.

Everyone, we’re closing in on Opening Day!  The ranking team is working feverishly to place your Top 20 in its proper order.

It, All in WDW’s Top 20 Food & Wine Festival Desserts, and my personal tasting menu will all be unveiled in very short order.  Stay tuned!

Our Weekly News! Does it ALL End in Controversy? [Poll]

Howdy, folks!  Welcome to Monday.  Yahoo!  Said with all sorts of sarcasm, of course.  Nevertheless, I hope your weeks go very well.

The latest episode of the WDW Main Street Podcast dropped last night, my friends, and I want to invite you to join Doug, Dennis, special guest Judith Lee of WDW Fan Zone, and myself in the Main Street Pub.

What did we discuss?  D23, of course!  What do we think about the information pouring out of Anaheim?  Well, you’ll have to listen to the show to find out.

WDW Main Street – Episode #377 – D23 Expo 2017 & Our Weekly News!

Oh, by the way, what’s all this “noise” about controversy?  What in the middle of all this wonderful news could have possibly lit up a heated debate between the members of the pub “crew”?

Of all things, the demise of Ellen’s Energy Adventure caused quite a stir!  The Guardians of the Galaxy are coming to Epcot, everyone, and Ellen is getting evicted!

So, what’s the big deal with all of that?  Doug and Dennis are forlorn.  I am overjoyed!  Honestly, no offense to Ellen, but that ride is (was) a clear “one and done”.

Then, the discussion morphed into a debate over which attraction holds much more redeeming value – Ellen or Living with the Land.  They say, ‘Ellen’.  I say, ‘Land’.  What say you?  Let us know in the poll below!
