Episode 24: Carlos Eduardo Silva shares a Waffle - October 2020
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!

Episode 16: Wafflers: Age of Cardboard - Birthday Special - June 2020
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!

You can find Here from the Magic on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. We're only days away from our 1st Birthday show. We'd love to hear what your favourite episode has been so far.

Episode 14: Lights, Camera, 'Live' Action! - May 2020
John tries to keep the Wafflers in order, as we discuss, debate and argue the whole classic animation versus modern day remakes of some wonderful Disney films and some dubious ones too!  Amidst the lockdown and maybe too much Disney+ that make for some interesting opinions and revelations. The team are also challenged to the 2nd Round of attraction knock out – if you thought April was cruel then May gets even more exciting and with an intriguing winner.  With all that is going on in the world we share a collective hug, a lorra laughs  and a huge May the 4th be with you all! Enjoy the show. And as always, Waffle on!
