Episode 24: Carlos Eduardo Silva shares a Waffle – October 2020

Summary

In this special episode, Claire, Ben, Becca and John had the chance to chat it up with Carlos Eduardo Silva who is the creator of Ponto Orlando and Ponto Miami – two Portuguese language online Florida content channels aimed at our Brazilian Disney-loving cousins.

Carlos also hosts the regular weekly “After hours – Let’s Talk Disney” live Facebook and YouTube show on a Thursday night with his friends Jason Canapp (whom we interviewed back on show episode 15) from Here with the Magic and Collin Kendall from Guide4WDW.

We had so much fun talking to Carlos – we covered all sorts of topics- from WDW to his previous trip to DLP, a very special Disney dinner party, and also Formula 1 racing, football (yes – Football, not soccer) and even some stellar music from the 1980’s that John particularly enjoyed.

And of course – as is now traditional with our interviews, Carlos faced the GBMW Carousel of Questions!

Despite being born thousands of miles away from the UK, we certainly found that there were more similarities in our love for Disney and connections with friends than there were differences.

Some of us Wafflers are hoping to get over to WDW as soon as we are able to fly again and a Caipirinha (or 6) with Carlos is definitely on the list of priorities.

We may even let the other 2 join us.

Carlos can be found on Instagram @pontoorlando and @pontomiami. If you don’t speak Portuguese – he is always happy to help!

You can also catch After Hours – Let’s Talk Disney at 9pm ET in the USA which sadly means a current start time of 2am in the UK, but you can always catch up on the replay on Facebook or YouTube!

Muito Obrigada Carlos!

Summary

For this month’s show we have Sammie in charge as we discuss our favourite underrated Disney films. We were only allowed to choose one, but as you’ll hear we could have easily come up with at least ten times more. Does your film make our shortlist? 

The Carousel of Questions this month is provided by our very own mini-wafflers – Joe, Josh, Morg and Millie. We venture north towards the top of I-Drive to visit Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure for this month’s knockout challenge. 

It’s a strange time we all find ourselves in and we’d love for you to join us on our socials, YouTube channel and don’t forget to hit subscribe so you don’t miss out on any more of our Disney Waffling. We’d be grateful if you could leave us a Rating and Review using your podcast app

Episode 16: Wafflers: Age of Cardboard – Birthday Special – June 2020

Summary

In this episode Lloyd takes the reins as we virtually get together for our 1st Birthday party. As the sun rises on the parks once again, we feel a wave of positivity for future visits and all agree it’s the right time to talk about what we miss the most, or in brighter times what we look forward to the most. 

We have the last Carousel of Questions in our quick fire decision series. This time John takes us through his answers. You will all have seen the Guardians of the Galaxy refresh to the Tower of Terror over in Anaheim. Some love the change of theme to what is in essence the same ride. This gets the team thinking about which rides would suit a new theme. Anything is up for grabs, even IPs within the Marvel and Star Wars galaxies. Some of the Wafflers are in the wrong job, imagineering here they come! 

We have the usual ‘Mickey Mentions’. Not so many trip announcements this time, but plenty of birthdays and anniversaries for the team to send a well timed “congratultions” to. We also learn that Lloyd was tricked into filming a cooking show with Peter. That video is now available on our YouTube channel. 

Round three of the, It’s a Disney Knockout competition is another tough one. The Wafflers are forced to choose entertainment and centrepieces for the Birthday Party. Lots of intense thinking and even remorse for some of the selections. Also check out our It’s a Disney Knockout rounds on our social media pages. The team are really interested to see what you would choose.

We’d love to hear from you – whether that’s a question or a Mickey Mention.
