This week, Julia Layne joins Jeff to discuss some timely news: The D23 schedule just dropped, and we look at Friday's schedule as we start to make plans for the convention. Then, we talk about a new documentary about "A Goofy Movie" called "Not Just a Goof" which we were able to preview at the Walt Disney Family Museum, and we talk about the creation of the documentary and the reasons that "A Goofy Movie" is held so dearly by its fans. Finally, Jeff visited Disneyland over the Independence Day weekend and sampled the latest menus of many of his favorite park eateries, and we talk about the highs and the so-sos.

Happy Easter! This week, we take a trip to Disneyland with 1955 guest Kit Reichow, who first visited Disneyland in his wonder years in September 1955 and never stopped visiting. We take a look at the park through the eyes of a guest who grew up alongside the park, and consider how things have changed throughout the history of the Disneyland Resort. Listen as we walk through the park chatting about topics including Rainbow Ridge, Mr. Lincoln, Disneyland Jail, and lots of general trip tips. We also are going to talk about the experience of purchasing tickets to the D23 Expo last week (spoiler alert: there were problems) and discuss a recent event at the Walt Disney Family Museum with two very aspirational Pixar employees who started their Pixar careers in the Pixar gift shop.

This week, Jeff invites Disney influencer/journalist/podcaster Kristen Carr to the show to discuss the concept of Disney Adulting, and the current trend of using the term "Disney adult" as an insult.

Plus - Jeff's Tiki Bird audio-animatronic sold at auction, and I'll discuss.
