Show # 249 Ed Sees Rivers of Light…Finally

Hello and welcome to Show # 249 of the Disney Nerds Podcast.  This week we take a look at Disney Animal Kingdom's Rivers of Light night time show.  This was added in 2017 as an addition to the new night time entertainment that Disney was adding to the Animal Kingdom.  We recently saw the show and here is our recording from that night.  Sam and Ed with both families at Rivers of Light.  FYI, based on my reaction, I did a little homework and discuss some of the story behind the show.  Headphones if possible.  Total stereo.

Show # 248, Carol Stein, Rose and Crown Musician and Much More

Posted by TheDisneyNerdsPodcast in Epcot, Carol Stein, Rose and Crown

Hello and welcome to show # 248.  This week we are excited to bring you a fun conversation we had with Carol Stein, Pianist Extraordinaire.

"Her travels as a musician have spanned the globe performing all over Europe, Asia, and the USA in such places as the Montreux Palace in Switzerland, The Bayerischerhof in Munich, The Oasis Lounge in Hong Kong to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Carol enjoys composing and spontaneous arranging of pieces during a live performance. She may take a child’s melody and turn it “inside-out” in the style of Mozart, and then into a bossa nova, and end up with a Duke Ellington swing. She always likes to add a special touch to each piece she plays, which is one reason she enjoys singing and playing as a solo pianist. However, the delight of performing with a group and the “magic” that occurs when musicians create a sound together is why Carol adores performing with her jazz band “Carol Stein & Friends!”

This is a really fun interview.  Carol takes us to the Downtown Disney and into the Comedy Warehouse where she started her career.  Then to Epcot and the Rose and Crown.  Listen in to hear about the other great locations Carol has played.

Carol is great at the Disney songs, but her talent is strong through all kinds of music.

Show #244 Sounds from the Parks

Hi guys and welcome back to the show!  This week we will be bringing you three attractions from our latest trip to WDW.  Two are what you would consider a non-E-Ticket ride, but I argue they are still both great.  As for the last attraction, that would be considered E-ticket.  Enjoy and headphones if you got them.
