It’s December 2021 and Claire takes the anchor role this month as Ben and Becca are still getting over the jetlag, Gill is trying to hold down the roof in Wales and John is busy warming his chestnuts by the fire. Sadly, Peter is a little under the weather so not coming out to play this month. First of all we hear about the two amazing Disney Park visits that our Wafflers have enjoyed. Ben and Becca made it to Walt Disney World on the very first day of the boarders being open, and not only met up with many friends of the show that we have all made in the last two years, but also made it onto BBC Radio, National TV News and even Disney UK’s own social channels! They will need their own agent soon to manage their own Meet & Greet! We talk about crowds, resorts, food and also Disney Genie. It sounds like it was an action-packed trip. Gill and Peter also made a visit to Disneyland Paris last month and whilst some of the Studios park remains under construction for the exciting Marvel Avengers Campus which opens in 2022, they had a lot of fun enjoying the seasonal offerings in our local parks. It wasn’t even too cold! Next on the schedule of events, the team talk about their favourite festive offerings in the parks over the years. It’s amazing all the different things that we enjoy and how it all builds together to make it the happiest Season ever! Finally, we all reflect on what a year 2021has been, and think about what is planned in 2022 for everyone. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

This very special bonus episode of the Great British Mickey Waffle rounds off our amazing month of Marvel!  Claire, Ben and Becca were so excited to be able to have the opportunity to “Share a Waffle” with none other than Kate Herron, director of the recently concluded season 1 of the Marvel Disney + Series: Loki.  Kate had lots to tell us about her experiences shooting Loki. We discussed her favourite scene to create, what it was like being part of the MCU, and the incredible opportunity to work with the best SFX team in the business.  We also had the chance to probe a little into the clever Easter eggs left around the show, how B15 was originally written as a male role, and also what it feels like for her to be handing the show across to a different director for Season 2 and whatever mischief it will bring.  We even discussed Mobius and his Jet Ski!  We are so grateful to Kate for spending her time chatting to us, joining us in geeking out about Loki and Marvel, and even pondering the concept of Alligator Loki perhaps appearing in a parade one day… stranger things have happened!  We hope you enjoy this extra special episode- so far this has been a highlight of our podcast journey!

It’s June which means it’s time for another episode in our “GBMW Shares a Waffle” series. This month Claire, ably assisted by Ben, Becca and John, had the absolute pleasure in chatting with the always chipper, cheery and very interesting Zac Brown. No, not THAT Zac Brown (the one with the band), but OUR Zac Brown - the one who is a part of many of the Disney communities we love to be part of regularly. Zac’s own podcast - The Zac Brown Show - has been around for about 18 months and it features him having some really fabulous conversations with a huge variety of guests. Some of the most notable are Trader Brandon (Brandon Kleyla) who was an Imagineer working on Trader Sam’s; musician Corey Jess, and some well known friends of the GBMW - Jason Canapp, Carlos Silva and of course Lou Mongello. Zac proved to be a superb guest - he faced our Carousel of Questions and told us about his dinner party plans. We talked about our excitement for the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Coaster and he discussed with us what motivates him about leaving a legacy (not the EPCOT tiny photo version) and why music is so important in his life. We had so much fun with Zac, and it’s highly likely that he will be back - there was so much more to talk about! We love it when a guest has more to say than we do (and this is pretty difficult when John is in the team) -  this was definitely one of those shows! The Zac Brown Show can be found on your podcast provider of choice, and he can be followed on Instagram @thezacbrownshow and @itszacbrown.

Disney Dining Plan – to do or not to do!!  Sounds simple or sounds daunting, hope we can help! Claire takes the anchor duties for the first time in quite a while, joined by the whole team of John, Sammie, Gill, Peter, Ben and Becca to continue that discussion from the past few months. Food…. and especially trying to ascertain “Is the DDP EVER really free?” We recognise that the dining plan isn’t currently an option,but looking forward to planning and booking into 2022 and beyond, we thought it was definitely something worth waffling about to help plan your next trip to WDW. The food talk will most certainly make you hungry and remind you of those restaurants you really love. A new feature, brand new for May, we introduce “Come Disney with Me”. It’s a Wafflers’ take on the classic TV shows similar to Come Dine with Me, where every month, one Waffler will take the opportunity to present 3 things to the GBMW team and ask for their ratings and views!

For this months ‘Waffle’, Ben is in charge and we take to the skies in one of Disney’s finest transportation options. Disney’s Skyliner. Unfortunately the Millennium Falcon was being repaired after we managed to crash it during Smugglers Run. Once we had recovered by riding Rise of The Resistance it was time to take on a challenge set by one of our listeners. We attempt a bar crawl from Hollywood Studios to Epcot, stopping at all Skyliner Resorts for 1 food item and 1 drink. Some very interesting choices were made and some were easier to pronounce than others. Once we had recovered from our trip we delved into the options available and what to consider when staying offsite. From the delights of the expansive hotels on International Drive to being close to Disney Springs by staying in Lake Buena Vista.

In this special episode, Claire, Ben, Becca and John had the chance to chat it up with Carlos Eduardo Silva who is the creator of Ponto Orlando and Ponto Miami - two Portuguese language online Florida content channels aimed at our Brazilian Disney-loving cousins. Carlos also hosts the regular weekly “After hours - Let’s Talk Disney” live Facebook and YouTube show on a Thursday night with his friends Jason Canapp (whom we interviewed back on show episode 15) from Here with the Magic and Collin Kendall from Guide4WDW. We had so much fun talking to Carlos - we covered all sorts of topics- from WDW to his previous trip to DLP, a very special Disney dinner party, and also Formula 1 racing, football (yes - Football, not soccer) and even some stellar music from the 1980’s that John particularly enjoyed. And of course - as is now traditional with our interviews, Carlos faced the GBMW Carousel of Questions! Despite being born thousands of miles away from the UK, we certainly found that there were more similarities in our love for Disney and connections with friends than there were differences. Some of us Wafflers are hoping to get over to WDW as soon as we are able to fly again and a Caipirinha (or 6) with Carlos is definitely on the list of priorities. We may even let the other 2 join us. Carlos can be found on Instagram @pontoorlando and @pontomiami. If you don’t speak Portuguese - he is always happy to help! You can also catch After Hours - Let’s Talk Disney at 9pm ET in the USA which sadly means a current start time of 2am in the UK, but you can always catch up on the replay on Facebook or YouTube! Muito Obrigada Carlos!

In this episode Lloyd takes the reins as we virtually get together for our 1st Birthday party. As the sun rises on the parks once again, we feel a wave of positivity for future visits and all agree it’s the right time to talk about what we miss the most, or in brighter times what we look forward to the most.  We have the last Carousel of Questions in our quick fire decision series. This time John takes us through his answers. You will all have seen the Guardians of the Galaxy refresh to the Tower of Terror over in Anaheim. Some love the change of theme to what is in essence the same ride. This gets the team thinking about which rides would suit a new theme. Anything is up for grabs, even IPs within the Marvel and Star Wars galaxies. Some of the Wafflers are in the wrong job, imagineering here they come!  We have the usual ‘Mickey Mentions’. Not so many trip announcements this time, but plenty of birthdays and anniversaries for the team to send a well timed “congratultions” to. We also learn that Lloyd was tricked into filming a cooking show with Peter. That video is now available on our YouTube channel.  Round three of the, It’s a Disney Knockout competition is another tough one. The Wafflers are forced to choose entertainment and centrepieces for the Birthday Party. Lots of intense thinking and even remorse for some of the selections. Also check out our It’s a Disney Knockout rounds on our social media pages. The team are really interested to see what you would choose. We'd love to hear from you - whether that's a question or a Mickey Mention. You can message us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or email us at themickeywaffle@gmail.com Waffle On!
