A Weekly Pleasure

I began listening to this podcast when I was dying for a Disney Cruise fix during covid. This was the first podcast I had ever listened to. I quickly made it through all of the episodes and now look forward to it every Wednesday. I am that person who talks back to the speaker in response to something Fran and Carrie have said. One of my favourite things about it is that they do not take themselves too seriously. It makes for an fun, easy listen and I always feel cheerier after.

Makes me smile & my heart happy!

I found this podcast about 6 months ago now & I “binge listen” to older episodes in between listening to the new ones released every week.

I always look forward to Wednesday when a new episode is coming out because I know I will be smiling & laughing along with Francine & Carrie.

These ladies not only hold a great podcast where you can feel the absolute love & passion they have for Disney, but they also truly care about their listeners. I have reached out multiple times & chatted with Fran over both Instagram & Facebook and I always receive a response. You aren’t just a number to them, you are truly made to be felt important.

Keep up the amazing work & I can’t wait to all of the future episodes!
