In this episode, your hosts, Tracey and Scott take a look at the Disney+ documentary Howard. Directed by Don Hahn (“Beauty and the Beast”), “Howard” is the untold story of Howard Ashman, the brilliant lyricist behind Disney classics like “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid” and creator of musicals including “Little Shop of Horrors.” Along with the documentary, Tracey and Scott will share their favorite Ashman penned songs in their Make Mine Music Segment. They’ll check in with Mortis at the Main Street Cinema and then look ahead to the next episode.

Other Places to Find Disney, Indiana
In today’s episode, our hosts, Tracey and Scott visit the Main Street Opera House (of all places) to take another look at some of their favorite Muppet Music – sharing their choices for positions #12 – #7. A couple of residents of Disney, Indiana share their favorites as well. Our hosts also review a new product to help Disney fans stand out in the crowd at the parks, discuss some upcoming fan events and share info about a possible Disney Lego kit build.
In today’s episode, one of the more popular segments of the Disney, Indiana podcast returns as Tracey and Scott play Make Mine Music by counting down their favorite Disney songs from the 1990s.
Our hosts found this to be a daunting task at first as there is so much good music associated with Disney from this time frame, so they limited the scope a little. They decided to only look at lighter songs this time around – they’ll do another 1990s countdown with the more serious and love songs at a future date.
Along with the Make Mine Music segment, they also share a bit of audio they recorded at Walt Disney World – from an attraction that opened in the 1990s.
All this, plus a call to the Main Street Cinema and some listener feedback.
Welcome to Disney, Indiana!
