Broadway’s Carly Jibson (“Hairspray,” “Cry-Baby”) joins her childhood friend David to discuss all things Disney. This self-proclaimed mermaid shares her deep love for Ariel and “The Little Mermaid,” and how the Alan Menken-era of Disney sparked her true love for musicals…and singing ballads in a bathtub. Listen as Carly recalls watching “Fantasia” as a kid, as well as some of the earlier Disney films, and pitches an idea for a True Crime Podcast surrounded the story of “Cinderella.” After a brief chat about the theme park offerings in Western Michigan, Carly shares her experience of going to Walt Disney World for the first time after a terrible break up–and how her nine days in the parks truly opened her eyes to the magic (and how watching the Princess Parade led to a deep emotional reaction). After a beautiful story about going back to Walt Disney World for her first Christmas after her mother passed away, Carly shares more of her love of Disney–her deep bond with Ariel, enjoying Rice Krispies Treats, and being sure to go on Pirates of the Caribbean, the Indiana Jones Adventure, and Big Thunder Mountain. Play along with David and Carly as they play “Hairspray or Disney,” and listen as these Muskegon kids share what happened to their favorite Disney figurines when they were little (spoiler alert: there was destruction). This episode also features a chat with Emily & Courtney of the Book of the Mouse Club podcast.
