Keith and Jeff had a topic all planned out for episode 13, but since it became pushed back a month, they decided to chat about Keith's recent Walt Disney World trip instead. Jeff asks Keith about the 2013 Wine and Dine Half Marathon, and Keith tells Jeff all about the day when the Carousel of Progress was closed for the filming of Brad Bird's Tomorrowland. The two also chat about the newly-released Maleficent trailer, and a few other tidbits.

Episode 9: CineMagique

Jerry returns to wrap up the wonderfully successful Jerry Rees month over at The Disney Project. This time the topic is a little film he directed called CinéMagique, which just so happens to be the best in-park film Disney has ever done. In episode 8, Keith (maybe the world's biggest CinéMagique fan) challenged Jerry to stump him with some trivia questions about the film. Jerry comes prepared, with a full "baker's dozen" of questions, ready to give Keith a run for his money.

This is a podcast no CinéMagique fan should miss!
