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!

From watching 4K videos to using VR headsets to immerse yourself in the Happiest Place on Earth. We also quiz Jason with our Carousel of Questions and find out things such as favourite park and favourite car park (or should that be parking lot?) 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.

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!

Crêpe Expectations - February 2020
For this episode, we are all at the local gym, trying to get in shape for our next trip to Disney. We discuss a couple of topics which have caused some concern amongst us Wafflers. It's also that time of year when we are all trying to eat that little bit healthier so we take a look at whether you can or should eat healthy at Walt Disney World. With Valentine's Day not too far away and budgets being stretched by our many trips to the Mouse, we try and spend less than $50 for a romantic evening at Disney. It's Lloyds turn for Carousel of Questions and of course, we have the Mickey Mentions. If you would like to have a Mickey Mention on a future show then email the Wafflers at themickeywaffle@gmail.com - It can be for anything that you're celebrating such as Birthday, Anniversary or that special Holiday. Waffle On!

Stranger Bins - October 2019
In our spooky October show, Becca is your host (your ghost host?) as we turn our conversations to all things Halloween and Food. There is always Food. Peter and Gill give us an overview of Le Rendezvous Gourmand and how it compares to Epcot's Festival of Food & Wine. Just back from recent trip to WDW - Claire tells us all what it's like to celebrate Halloween in August. In a strange twist of fate, our two wafflers, Sammie and Lloyd found their September holidays in Orlando coinciding, so the outcome was an evening at HHN as a GB Mickey Waffle research trip! They managed to find a few minutes at the end of a busy night to send us their initial impressions of this terrifying party.
