The show has three regular segments: Guest Services, the Queue, and the Hub. We also have several occasional segments that we do when we have content for them: Marvel Minute with Eli, Magic Our Way, and Extra Magic Hours. We bookend all of this with the Intro and the Outro. I have a provided a description of each of the segments below in hopes that this will further “plus” your listening experience by understanding our thought processes for each of the show segments.
Regularly Occurring Segments
This is the segment in which we address any and all topics asked of us by the MOWicans and regular listeners like you. We pride ourselves on allowing any and all questions, topics, opinions etc. to be presented on the Magic Our Way podcast. Kevin implemented this policy since he himself has had numerous questions and comments rejected by other Disney podcasts…which pretty much explains why he, along with Danny, started this show. Kevin wanted to make sure that every Disney fan had a platform to freely voice his/her opinion.
In this segment, we address listener questions, reviews in iTunes and Stitcher and more, emails, comments on social media, etc. We address anything that comes from your communication with us. Luckily for you, we are accessible in a lot of different ways. Proceed to our CONTACT page and our SOCIAL MEDIA page to get in touch with us. Or, click that little Speakpipe widget on the right hand center side of this website.
This is the Guest Services jingle.
This is our jingle to separate each entry.
This is our news and information segment. We talk about the latest happenings going on in the world of Disney including the parks, movies, animation, Marvel, Lucasfilm, Disney on Broadway, etc. If Disney owns it, we will talk about it.
But, here is the twist. We recognize the fact that there are a bunch of other Disney fan podcasts out there that have the “inside scoop” and can keep up with current events happening in Disney and, because of this, are able to present a really good news segment. So, we don’t compete with that. We choose to talk about only those topics that interest the individual Magic Our Way hosts.
We think of The Queue segment like this: if we were standing in a Disney attraction queue waiting to get in the show or moving back and forth in the switchbacks, what would we talk about? The things that interest us the most.
This is the current Queue jingle (this will be updated very soon).
This is the jingle we use to separate each item in The Queue.
This segment contains our big, “main” topic of our show. We call it the Hub because we relate the discussion to the hub and spokes design of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom park. We have the central idea of the topic and we have the freedom to take this discussion in any direction we choose.
We talk about anything and everything in this segment. You will hear game shows, movie reviews, blue sky imagineering, debates, travel ideas/suggestions, interviews, and MORE!
This is the current Hub jingle (this will be updated very soon).
Marvel Moment with Eli
This segment is usually spearheaded by Eli, hence the name. This segment comes into play when Eli has a comics related topic. Sometimes, the entire show for the week could be one big Marvel Moment, as in the Deadpool Review, MOW #106. So, this segment could be about anything comic book related, but we usually try to stick with anything Marvel…including the non-Disney Marvel stuff.
Magic Our Way
This segment doesn’t get as much use anymore. This segment was used when we originally started the show when there was only Kevin and Danny. The segment’s original intent was a chance to be creative and take a “Blue Sky” approach to whatever we were discussing in the Hub. That was the magic “Our” way…not, your way and not Disney’s way.
For your information, the show used to have a Queue, a Hub, and a Magic Our Way segment every week.
Extra Magic Hours
This is another segment that is not in use anymore…just like Magic Kingdom’s Noodle Station. Anyway, this used to be a segment at the end of the show, just before the Wrap Up, in which we would address any questions or comments that came in from our listeners while we were recording the show.
