  • What’s your hidden talent? I’m REALLY good at guessing how many things are in a jar. Like I usually win those little contests. You name it. M&Ms, rubber bands, wine corks, whatever. I can tell you how many are in the jar I’m looking at. My library had to buy me a LOT of gift cards when I was little.

  • Favorite Disney Character? Hades
  • Hogwarts House? Slytherin!
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? Ronto Wraps
  • What obscure thing do you know way too much about?  In college I was studying to become Indiana Jones and my brain is still filled with a lot of not particularly relevant anthropological facts.

Sage Starkey
AllEars YouTube & Writer

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction?
  • Great Movie Ride, Muppet 3D and Poseidon’s Fury. I’m a huge proponent of live entertainment, so anything that can bridge the gap between an attraction and live actors is an absolute WIN!
  • Favorite Disney Character? Powerline and Pepe the King Prawn. OR the child of Powerline and Pepe… Peline. They can sing and they’re smooth with the lady prawns. 😉
  • Hogwarts House? Slytherin. I’m not bad… I’m just drawn that way. Ooos, mixed IP’s.
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? Brown Derby Manhattan. I’m more of a cocktail guy in nice stemware. KEEP YOUR CHURROS! Unless it comes in a martini glass…
  • Would You Survive the REAL Jurassic Park? Absolutely not! I’d be the guy who is married to the leading lady who actually has plans to turn Jurassic Park into a broadway show! I get eaten during the 11 o’clock number when the T Rex forgets his choreography and eats me instead.

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction?

Carousel of Progress!

  • Favorite Disney Character?

Basil of Baker Street

  • Hogwarts House? Ravenclaw
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World?

Dole Whip #basic

  • Would You Survive the REAL Jurassic Park?

If I had my contacts in, yes. If I had my glasses on, there’s a high chance they’d fall off and I’d probably run into something, get knocked out, and then be eaten.

Breedlove
AllEars YouTube Producer

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction? If you go on Carousel Of Progress and Spaceship Earth in the same day you can trick yourself into thinking you rode Horizons.
  • Favorite Disney Character? ESMERALDA!
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World?The Spicy Italian “Sausage” Sub from PizzaRizzo! I know this isn’t an official Disney World snack, but for $9.99 you get a delicious little plant based sub sandwich topped with onions, peppers, mushrooms and marinara that comes with a cute little salad in a plastic cup topped with vegan ranch.
  • Favorite part of working with AllEars? I love that the All Ears staff are like a Venn diagram of Disney and other pop culture trivia and we look at each other with our mouths hanging open when the obscure references start spilling out. There’s even someone with whom I can debate the age old question of who invented glam rock, David Bowie or Marc Bolan. OR WAS IT IGGY?!

 

 

Lydia Storks
AllEars Writer

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction? Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, it makes me giggle like a child every time
  • Favorite Disney Character? It’s a tie between Rapunzel and Kronk (Tangled and The Emperor’s New Groove are also tied for my favorite Disney movie!)
  • Hogwarts House? Gryffindor, which seems to be pretty rare around here.
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? Dole Whip and soft serve. If it’s flavored like a fruit and served in a cup or cone, I’m there!
  • A Favorite Thing About Your Job? Most people who know about this are incredibly shocked at first, but freestyle rapping. I’ve always been good at poetry and tongue twisters, so making up rhyming words and saying them really fast somehow comes pretty naturally

 

 

Chris
AllEars TV Editor

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Park? I was always partial to Epcot because I really like the more educational/scientific vibe when it first opened. And something about the music that they play throughout the park was always uplifting.
  • Favorite Disney Character? Baloo – Something about Phil Harris’ voice work on that character always struck a chord with me.
  • Hogwarts House? I have yet to be sorted.
  • What obscure thing do you know way too much about? Growing up, I fell into Malacology which is the study of sea shells. Actually, Conchology is the study of the shell, whereas malacology is the study of the entire organism. I was more of a Conchologist. But that was long ago and a lot has been forgotten.

 

Chralex
AllEars TV Editor

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Park?
  • Of all time: Journey into Imagination (the OG)…Still around: Pirates
  • Favorite Disney Character? If Gonzo counts, then Gonzo, if not, then Goofy
  • Hogwarts House? I’m not educated enough to know how to officially figure what Hogwarts House I’m in, but I would guess and/or choose Gryffindor
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? Mickey Premium Bar, it’s not the best, but it’s my go-to
  • If you went to the real Jurassic Park, would you survive? I reject the premise of this question because there’s no chance I would voluntarily go to an island filled with dinosaurs; however, if I was kidnapped and abandoned there I would absolutely survive. First, not unlike a zombie apocalypse, I feel like surviving would be much easier than contemporary media makes it seem. Second, I feel no obligation to anyone other than my immediate family, so as long as they’re not with me, I’d be fine.

Emily Burrus
AllEars Writer & Editor

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction?Disney: Tower of Terror, Carousel of Progress, Splash Mountain
    Universal: Rip Ride Rockit
  • Favorite Disney Character? Megara
  • Hogwarts House? Hufflepuff
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? It’s basic, but a good ole Dole Whip.
  • What’s your hidden talent? I can make balloon animals! I am not an expert by any means, but I just decided to buy a kit and teach myself one day. I’m pretty good at simple shapes like flowers and dogs, but maybe one day I’ll go pro 😉

Kelly Oliveros
AllEars Writer & Editor

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction? Living with the Land, followed closely by the PeopleMover and Space Mountain
  • Favorite Disney Character? Rapunzel
  • Hogwarts House? Ravenclaw
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? Mickey Rice Krispie Treat (my parents ship them to me sometimes and I’m so thankful)
  • What obscure thing do you know way too much about? Pokemon characters (pokemon themselves and trainers) and how to draw them. My cousin and I play via FaceTime every weekend and as part of our games I always have to draw pokemon characters (trainers and pokemon) and she has to guess which one I drew.

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction?Tower of Terror! Between the creepy atmosphere, ultra-detailed theming, and randomized drop sequences to keep you guessing, it just can’t be beat in my book.
  • Favorite Disney Character? Pocahontas
  • Hogwarts House? Ravenclaw
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? There are so many great choices, so I’m going to have to stick with my favorite of the classics or we’d be here all day. I usually prefer salty over sweet, so I’m going with a Mickey Pretzel with cheese!
  • A Favorite Thing About Your Job? I love sharing stories from the parks both with readers and members of the AllEars team. My favorite part of visiting Disney World is getting to share the experience with others, so taking that a step further by writing about it is a dream!

 

Robin Burks
AllEars Writer

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction?Haunted Mansion because it’s both creepy and funny. I’m like a kid in a candy store when I’m riding it (I have very happy ride photos to prove this).
  • Favorite Disney Character? Evil Queen because she might be bad, but she’s got style. And Merida because she can shoot for her own hand, thank you very much.
  • Hogwarts House? Gryffindor!
  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World? Kakamora Float — I finally had one recently and it changed my life.
  • What’s your hidden talent?  I love to sew and I’m a costumer/cosplayer. I’m an official member of the Rebel Legion (official Star Wars costuming/charity group sanctioned by Lucasfilm).

  • Favorite Disney or Universal Attraction? Expedition Everest
  • Favorite Disney Character?
    Elsa/ Buzz Lightyear/ Mickey Mouse

  • What’s your #1 snack in Disney World?
    Fresh Caramel Corn from Germany
  • Favorite AllEars memory?
    It’s hard for me to list one specific memory while having the pleasure of working on the all ears team. I feel like every time we do the interviews we get closer to one another and have a lot of fun. If I have to choose one memory I will talk about the particular time where we had just filmed our first episode and I was watching it for the first time. I was absolutely blown away by the editors and their beautiful tribute to my grandmother at the end of the episode when talking about illuminations. That episode means so much to me and my family and after seeing it I knew that I was not just part of the AllEars team but part of a family.
