Mousetalgia Episode 371: Disneyland Paris; Hipster Mickey artist Jerrod Maruyama
Team Mousetalgia offers a Disneyland Paris trip report this week, hitting the major highlights: Phantom Manor and the bride – does the cohesive storyline give this attraction a leg up on its cousin, the Haunted Mansion? Also discussed: the holidays at Disneyland Paris and how the celebrations compare with the American parks; the European atmosphere and cultural differences; and highlights from the theme parks, including Space Mountain, Crush’s Coaster, Ratatouille, Pirates – and that Eyvind Earle-inspired Sleeping Beauty Castle (guarded by a semi-slumbering dragon)! The shopping experience is also discussed, as is the dining experience at the resort. When in France… do you eat in the parks, go for the chicken nuggets, or zip over to the nearest bistro? The answer might surprise you! Also – Disney artist Jarrod Maruyama talks about Hipster Mickey and his latest book projects, a listener shares some Napa Rose memories – and more.
