Can you smell what the Gold Key Adventurers are cooking? This week the gang is boarding a steamer to head deep into the wild rivers of the world for a very special Jungle Cruise spectacular. Learn about extravagant florist bills, live animals in the early days of the attraction, and how the Walt Disney World version of the Jungle Cruise compares to versions from Disneylands in Anaheim, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. Plus The Rock vs Johnny Depp, pesky Skippers, and the genius of Disney legends Bill Evans and Harper Goff.  Watch out for the rhinos and don’t wake the sleeping zebra, it’s time to hit the trail with the Gold Key Adventurers Society!

 

Guys, big news! This is our 99th episode. Do you know what that means?) Next week is our 100th episode! Jeff, Heather, and Jess will be back in studio for a massive theme park roundup (spoilers, we’ll definitely have things to say about Disneyland’s AP reboot, the Magic Key, as well as big Star Wars announcements to unpack). Since it’s also our second anniversary, we’ve got a wishlist of ways you can help us celebrate! First, we’re so close to hitting another major milestone we can taste it. We’re about 1000 downloads shy of a grand total of 20,000 listens, and we’re anxious to make it up over that final hill to the big two oh-oh-oh-oh.  We’d really appreciate it if you could send a friend or two our way at www.goldkeyadventurers.com, or give us a shout out on Facebook or Twitter and help us have our first ever 1000 download week. While you’re at it, we sure would like to hear from you about just what it is that keeps you coming back to adventure with us week after week. The best way to do that,and help others realize how much fun we are, is by dropping us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts, or whatever app you use to listen to our show.
