This week’s episode of The Make Mine Magic Podcast includes discussion of Ellen’s Energy Adventure/Universe of Energy, Disney Quest, Alien Encounter, and the much-loved Great Movie Ride, all attractions that have either gone away, or are on their way out ? what we loved about them, what could have been done better, their history, and what might be replacing them in the parks. Also, we talk about the butterfly effect, Aliens on rides, Stitch’s Great Escape, arcades, the Silverball Museum, and Alex Trebek as Doctor Doom.

The Make Mine Magic Podcast features Jenn and Glenn Walker talking about Disney, parks, movies, travel advice, characters, Marvel, Star Wars, Studio Ghibli, etc., if it’s Disney, it’s fair game.
