Places & Travel

Part of Our World is a bi-weekly podcast where your hosts Keenan and Rachael have a half-an-hour (or so) conversation about a Disney related topic whether it’s tips for the parks, favorite movies or characters, or how to not go insane waiting for that next Disney vacation.

Episodes

Rachael and Keenan are joined by dynamic duo, Matt and Susie from Imagineears Podcast to have some fun, fantasy-filled dream planning with the idea of picking one thing to do, see, and eat in each land of Magic Kingdom. Find out about the ONE thing they all had to do, hidden hot dogs that are reportedly better than Casey's, secret menu items, what it's like to be fed by a Disney character and more.

We're back with a trip report! This time we headed to the parks just a week after they re-opened after being closed for several months due to Covid-19. Were we crazy to go to the parks amid a global pandemic? Yes, but also, on this very special 10th anniversary trip for us, we had an amazing time. Join us for three trip reports each covering, in glorious detail, the magic of this whirlwind vacation.

 

This episode covers our second day at Hollywood Studios, the anxiety of trying to get a Rise of the Resistance boarding pass, first time at Galaxy's Edge, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway a whopping three times, and dinner with friends and fellow podcasters, Justin and Samantha from Monday Morning Monorail Podcast.

 

What did you think of this trip report? We’d love to hear your feedback! As always, Apple Music reviews are greatly appreciated and will be read on the next episode.

If this episode title confuses you, it's probably because it's the most bizarre episode of ours to date. Rachael and Keenan invite Mere and Colin back again to rant about Disney, but this time it's not critiquing a terrible remake or a soulless remake, it's discussing a love they all share: Hamilton, the musical. After briefly discussing a highlight-centric review of the live action Hamilton on Disney+, they engage in a fantasy football-style draft of Disney characters to cast as Hamilton characters.

The rules are as follows:

Rules:

  • ANY Disney property is fair game
  • No repeats, even for separate characters 
  • Characters only, the actors who portray them are not in consideration
  • If an actor plays a dual role in Hamilton, the character you choose will play both roles
  • Roles can be cast in any order.

It is an absurd concept with even more ridiculous answers. 

Mere and Colin are launching their new YouTube channel soon. Follow them on Twitter at @ympschannel for updates!

Whether you are a longtime fan of Hamilton or just getting into it now that a filmed version is on Disney Plus, you will love listening to Rachael and Keenan, joined by Tom and Michelle of Hyperion Adventures Podcast, dig deep into the incredible, award-winning Broadway show Hamilton.

This episode is part 2 of a crossover series discussing Hamilton. Part 1, over on Hyperion Adventures' feed, scratches the surface of Hamilton for beginners or those who have never seen it. It is a spoiler-free episode designed to introduce new fans to the plot, characters, and history of Hamilton. Go listen to that first if you haven't yet!

Part 2 focuses on what makes Hamilton so unique, the complexities, the lyrical dexterity, the parallels among characters, the rich and complicated themes, and more. This episode does not hold back with spoilers, so make sure you've heard/seen the show or are completely OK with key moments in the show being revealed.

What is "vacation mentality" or having a "vacation mindset"? To many, it is simply how you think and feel differently on vacation. And, of course, this is true. But vacation mentality is achievable whether you are relaxing at a poolside bar, riding a coaster, hiking through the mountains, or even just going to the Saturday Farmer's Market for a bit. Vacation mentality is even harder to obtain when there are irritations (usually other people) to your vacation plans.

On this episode, Rachael and Keenan discuss the heart of vacation mentality as well as strategies for staying in it. While the focus is geared toward Disney vacations (especially considering the restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic), but can be applied to any excursion. Listen to lots of stories about vacation mentality in practice (or lack thereof) and plenty of tips to help you with your next trip.

This week, Rachael and Keenan take a trip around the world (World Showcase at Epcot, that is) with their friend Drunk Stormtrooper (aka @WDWJediMaster on Twitter). Join them as they select their beverage of preference when completing the challenge of drinking at all eleven World Showcase pavilions. This episode is a little more PG-13 than usual, with lots of inneundos, not to mention a mature topic, that may not be appropriate for the kiddos.

Calling All Dreamers is a new type of bonus episode from the Part of Our World team. We were inspired after a fascinating interview with Disney vlogger and photographer, Andres (Thrills and Magic on all social media and YouTube) went way longer than ancipated -- well worth it, check it out here.

 

We, of course, still wanted to play "This or That" with Andres so we scheduled the game for a livestream at a later date--the anniversary of Animal Kingdom-- and now you can listen to that recording here as a bonus episode.  Check it out!

 

We plan on doing lots more shows where we play Disney-themed games with members of the online Disney community. And we'll call this type of episode "Calling All Dreamers" -- so if you see that in the future, you know what that means
