039 The Disney Exchange-Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. The Disney Exchange is David Hodges, Lisa Green, and me, Nicholas Maglio.

My wife Barbie and me, 2008

This week we recorded on a new platform for the first time, appearing live on Blab a new Twitter App!

There are several times that one of us references what the other is doing, because for the first time we are actually seeing each other as we record! We are also able to see people comment as we record!

If you would like to watch Lisa, Dave and me doing the show, please check it out:

We start off with a brief discussion of the upcoming show The Muppets, premiering on ABC Tuesday September 22nd at 8PM EST.

Some of us are not happy with the direction the show will apparently be taking the Muppets in, and in particular Kermit’s new girlfriend, Denise.

 We finally get into a discussion of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party which starts September 15th and takes place several evenings through November 1st.

With our friends Pam and Tom in 2011

We talk costumes, which I recommend for kids and adults alike.



The Party is VERY popular, and if you want to go, you should absolutely buy tickets in advance!

We discuss other strategies for touring the party, such as times to arrive, and the best time to see the Boo To You Parade which is run twice an evening. I watch it both times.

Please note, I promised to post photos from Lisa in the show notes. Lisa was tied up with something else just slightly more important, namely her daughters wedding, so I didn’t bug her for them, but here is one of the inflatable Stitch over Tomorrowland from 2006 that I promised to post.

I tell why I believe Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is better than Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

Finally we discuss what to do on Party evenings if you are NOT attending and the impacts of crowds on other parks.

The Wheel of Distiny topic : Who is the Avenger character you’d most like to have dinner with and why?

Thank you for listening to and maybe even watching The Disney Exchange Podcast.
