Our very first live recording!! That's right, back in March of 2020 we gathered in the Sipping Office (Trevor Kelly's majestic backyard Jungle Cruise Themed Tiki Bar) to let our hair down and share stories about what exactly Disneyland means to all of us. We thought that at this point, pretty much the middle point of our journey through the park, it would be great for us (and our wonderful friends who joined us for the live taping) to share just what we love about The Happiest Place On Earth. A very special thank you to Trevor and Jessica, all the artists who came out and shared their works with everyone, and all of our wonderful fans who bundled up and braved a cold, rainy night to have some fun with us. Without any further ado, enjoy our first (but certainly not our last) live episode of The Backside of Water!

Wait, stop! Don't pass over this episode! I know you may not love Chip N' Dale's Treehouse, heck, you may not have known it even existed. But I assure you, you won't regret learning about the history of this little tree, nestled in the back corner of ToonTown. In this episode we explore the history of the two 'munks who call this tree home, including how they represent the many sides of Walt Disney. We also explore the vast connection the parks as a whole have to trees, as well as our human connection to trees as well.

So whether, you're a Disney history nut, or a cashew-al admirer of the parks, Chip 'N Dale's Treehouse is most certainly an attraction worth getting to know. Enjoy!

On this episode of the Backside Of Water, Alex, Annie, and Freddy explore that little resiliant coaster tucked back in the corner of Toon Town. Some may see this attraction as a pass over attraction, and as such, may see this episode as a pass-by episode. But I assure you, this episode is far from a pass-by episode! You will learn a TON of awesome information about this attraction and even more about the park history as a whole! So grabs some acorns and your best chums and enjoy the latest episode of The Backside of Water!
