It's been far too long... We have emerged from our pandemic induced Disney depression hiatus of 7 months poised and ready to tackle the most magical place on earth from our familiar perspective but with a slightly different view.

Tomorrowland Cowboys #27 We compare NBA stars to Walt Disney World Attractions

10/12/2020
Oh we went there. We burst the NBA bubble with a long strange trip down the "What if?" road as we ask the questions that no one else, ever, has asked. If NBA players were Disney rides, what would they be? If you aren't an NBA fan, this podcast isn't for you, sorry, it won't make any sense. BUT for those of you that follow NBA basketball and really really love Disney, well boy oh boy, I have got a podcast for you! Buckle up, some of these are going to be a bit of a stretch. Got your own perfect correlation? Hit us up on social media or shoot us an email at to tell us your own WDWXNBA mashup for the ages. We had a good time making this, hope you enjoy listening and finding out how JJ Reddick and Duncan Robinson are the living embodiment of Prince Charming Regal Carrousel! BTW, Gordon Hayward, if you are listening, maybe don't listen from 11:20 in to 12:00 in, no big deal...

Tomorrowland Cowboys #25 Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

9/17/2020
Monumental podcast #25 which is a big deal for us! What better time to talk about an extinct classic, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. We talk a ton about the many sources of inspiration Walt Disney and his imagineers had for this quirky, strange, dark and WILD car ride through a version of England. Nothing says Disney like playing the role of a possibly drunk humanlike toad driving recklessly, getting incarcerated, escaping, and dying. So if you ever wanted to experience something like that, your'e out of luck, sorry. Well, I guess you could always go to Disneyland, the original, BUT it's probably easier to just listen to the podcast. So, yeah, go for it... I bet you never realized Winnie The Pooh was possibly a Wind in The Willows ripoff, spoiler alert... Enjoy, had fun making it!
