Inside The Mouse Castle 10-31-2014 - This is Halloween, Tokyo Disney Resort Expansion and New Disney Cruise Line Destinations

Happy Halloween!
Happy Halloween from The Mouse Castle!

We're getting this frightfully fun party weekend started with an Inside The Mouse Castle drinking game. No, really. Thank you to our loyal listener Ben Watson for sending it to us. He's clearly caught most of our shows and apparently has way too much time on his hands.

This game is not for the faint of heart (or liver), especially since we worked every element on the list below into today's show. Exercise caution and please don't drunk dial us when you're done.

Take a drink when:
1. There's an intro clip at the very beginning of the podcast.
2. A segue is attempted.
3. Anthony's dad Mike is mentioned.
4. Tim talks about Disney Infinity.
5. Anthony tries to do an impression.
6. Tim talks about a trip he took to Disney.
7. Anthony looks something up on the Internet.
8. Lady Tremaine is mentioned.
9. Marvel's future plans are talked about.
10. The phrase "Let it go" is used.


There's a lot more going on in today's Inside The Mouse Castle. Some of it is even newsworthy.

Tokyo Disneyland's Fantasyland Expansion
Tokyo Disneyland's Fantasyland Expansion
  • Oriental Land Co., Ltd., which oversees operation of Tokyo Disney Resort, will sink $4.5 billion into expansion projects over the next ten years. The biggest enhancements will appear in Fantasyland at Tokyo Disneyland and a new themed port at Tokyo DisneySea. 
Disney Fantasy
Disney Fantasy
  • Disney Cruise Line is adding new cruises and ports of call to its 2016 itineraries. Tortola, the capital of the British Virgin Islands, will be included on select Eastern Caribbean cruises aboard the Disney Fantasy and Disney Magic. There will also be four sailings from San Juan, Puerto Rico, aboard the Disney Wonder with stops in Martinique, Barbados, Grenada, Antigua and St. Kitts. For more information, visit
  • The new Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box Starter Pack (i.e., the Not-Marvel edition) will be released on November 4th. This weekend, however, visitors to Once Upon a Toy at the Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World will get an opportunity to buy the game before it's released anywhere else. It's available for PlayStation, Xbox and Wii U consoles and includes the game software, Infinity base, Merida and Stitch characters and two Power Discs. Purchase it Saturday or Sunday and Once Upon a Toy will throw in an additional Disney character figure for free.
Baymax on vinyl
Baymax on vinyl.
  • We love this 7" Baymax vinyl of Fall Out Boy's "Immortals" that's included in a special Big Hero 6 movie soundtrack bundle. You can pre-order it now at
  • Maleficent and Planes: Fire & Rescue come out on Blu-ray, Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD and On-Demand on November 4th. Anthony and I are indifferent to Planes: Fire & Rescue (okay, we haven't seen it yet), but I still have serious issues with what Disney did with Maleficent. Why can't she just be pure evil? Why does she have to have a conflicted conscience?
  • New York's Empire Brewing Company brews a cleverly named beer called Strikes Bock. Think about that for a second. Empire. Strikes Bock. Yeah, apparently Lucasfilm isn't too pleased (although the beer is still listed on Empire's website).
Oh, and one final thing. Anthony is running for mayor in his hometown. Yours too. Actually, he's running for any office anywhere anyone is willing to write him in. Please ponder that on election day. Thanks.
