info_outline Ep 120 - Lindsey Lohan Sex List 12/16/2017
Ep 120 - Lindsey Lohan Sex List Annie and Dan return this week to talk about the very Facebookesque topic of wishing people Happy Holidays versus Merry Christmas... That's about it. Just kidding! They also talk about the folks at Parkeology doing WDW47s for people, and how difficult it would be to do with the newly added Pandora rides. Mostly, though, they talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Spoilers start around minute: 26:30 They talk about Poe and Finn and Rey and Kylo and Leia and C3PO and BB8 and Luke and Snoke and yes... this is an obvious SEO grab.

Dan then briefly touches on his reviews of the new Walt Disney World restaurants (Tiffins, Jungle Skipper Cantina, Morimto's, Art Smith's, and Frontera Cocina). It's all very thorough. Then the duo turns their attentions to the Frozen short before 'Coco' and 'Coco' itself. Spoiler Alert... They liked one of them, and didn't like the other. See if you can guess which one is trash, and which will be held up along with the rest of the Pixar, Disney pantheon of great films.
info_outline Ep 118 - The Criminal Element 10/25/2017
Ep 118 - The Criminal Element Annie and Dan return after Dan's trip to Walt Disney World and break down the trip, day by day.

Among other digressions, Dan discusses his theory that Fastpass Plus is increasing wait times overall, Frozen's quality as a ride, and some of the new Pandora attractions.
