    Post Episode 24 - Meet Me At Garys Column

    Birthday Stuff. Happy Birthday INTERCOT Insider - One Year Old. Happy Birthday INTERCOT - We’re 14! Duffy has been at the park one year.

    The passing of Steve Jobs. His tie in to Disney and Pixar. Was he this generations Walt Disney? What happens down the road with Apple? Will there be a what would Steve do effect? John recommends you look up John Taylors book - Storming of the Magic Kingdom.

    Rober Iger stepping down… 4 years from now. What will be his legacy?

    Unplug and Plug - we finally get it right.

    We ponder the career of Willow Bay.

    Big Thunder Mountain long rehab Jan 9 thru May 27. Dumbo goes down Jan 9 thru Feb 17. Park hours are out thru April 2012.

    INTERCOTs best of - Place to people watch. Carol hangs at World Showcase on a bench in Epcot. Gary looses everyone and wants folks to meet him at the Road Furniture in Epcot’s UK - otherwise known as Gary’s Column. Show 25, Ian may need to host. Ian sits by the fountain in Innoventions Plaza. Melanie people watches at Hollywood Studios outside Sweet Spells. Gary swears he saw Kenny Rogers there and chaos ensues. John heads to the Kona Cafe sushi bar.

    Animal Kingdom Lodge - John is set to stay there and asks the staff their opinion and whether it’s too far away from everything. We ponder why they didn’t put in some sort of boat transportation to Animal Kingdom - missed opportunity.

    New FREE Android App for the Podcast. Why no Apple app? iTunes provides a great way to subscribe unlike Android which didn’t provoide a great way to subscribe. Search INTERCOT Insider in the marketplace or go to: https://market.android.com/details?i...dbeanapp297790 - Please rate us if you get a chance.

    John’s trip to California and Disneyland - so he hung with NotaGeek.

    Duffy Storybook debuts. We ponder if it’s rehashed Duffy.

    Looked for the new Dooney's the other day when I was at Downtown Disney, but no luck. Maybe they'll be at the parks this week and I'll look then.

    Dooney & Bourke just sounds like a British comedy duo to me.

    That's so funny that you ponder the career of Willow Bay. I always think of her when I think of Iger and wonder about her career. Also, agreed on AK transportation options. Maybe a train? Something? I'm headed off to listen. Can't wait to hear this.

    I am listening right now and kind of scared that I knew exactly where Gary meant when he was describing his column.

    Not scared. You're awesome.

    Talked to a friend from England and he said it's made to look like war memorials they have in towns across England. They were built after WWI and inscribed with names of villagers lost in battle.They were inscribed again after WWII.

    Thanks. I think spent too much time playing Kim Possible in the UK! Somehow I always end up at Gary's Column.

    That is very cool. I always wondered why it was there.

    Me too. I am such a bargain purse girl, but I find myself really want a D&B. I almost bought the bow pattern, but want to see this one first.

    Another great podcast. The chemistry is just great. I am always sad when it is over.

    I'm curious. John- How did you end up feeling about AKL? Did the long walk to the lobby stay annoying?

    And lastly on Duffy. Yes, I bought the book. And yes it is mainly a retread, but my kids love it. The question now is how many more Duffy outfits will they want this week. At least they are cheaper than Lego sets!

    Cindy, be scared. Be very scared.

    Seriously though, it was such an A-HA moment when I figured out what Gary was talking about.

    Yet another great podcast!

    Two things:

    1) I've tied to listen to other Disney-related podcasts but they were so boring I couldn't get through more than a few minutes before I gave up. The fun and laughter y'all bring to the table is great. I particularly enjoy the occasional (make that frequent) rabbit holes you go down. Keep up the great work.

    2) As far as Ian's comments about the "Nightmare Before Christmas" - I have to agree completely. I too, hate it. I love the idea of an overlay, and changing things up now and then, but why use that?

    Thanks for letting me spend 90 minutes with y'all. Now back to waiting for the next episode.

    I found the column on Google Earth. It is very clearly there right in the middle of everything. Road furniture.

    I knew I liked you for a reason.

    How sad it is that I did the same thing, Gary? We're such nerds.

    Just finished listening to the podcast. Great fun as always! Loved hearing about your favorite people watching spots.

    Just one thing:

    -Ian is right about Disneyland also being known as the Magic Kingdom. It was Disneyland's nickname way before the Florida park was ever conceived. So, technically, he was right. The DL railroad even mentions the phrase "Magic Kingdom"

    Natalie, we've talked about this. We don't tell Ian he was right about something because then he never stops talking about the time we told him he was wrong and he was right. There are hundreds of topics on the boards that support this.

    I can't wait to hear Ian host episode 25!

    The moaning and groaning over the Phillies loss was sufficent

    Laughed so hard at you guys making fun of Gary's column. I will have to do a google earth search for that later.

    I laughed a lot during this episode and considering I listen while working out on an ellipitical machine - it makes things difficult.
