Hey there! And welcome to Journey to the Magic... The Official Walt Disney Travel Company Podcast, Giovanna Fletcher’s new, star-studded podcast about all the things that make Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disney Cruise Line oh so magical.
 
Tune in to our first season and each week you’ll hear from celebrity guests as they share their most magical memories, funny stories and family traditions from their Disney holidays. Giovanna will then ask them what their Perfect Disney Day would be if they could go anywhere and do absolutely anything Disney – we’re talking breakfasts on a private Caribbean island, an afternoon exploring a galaxy far, far away and an evening enjoying a magnifique romantic meal at a restaurant run by a rat. No two days are ever the same, that’s for sure. If, like Giovanna, you’ve been a diehard Disney fan since, well, forever, or have kids (and a partner) who go mad for the magic, then this is well worth your Mickey ears. You’ll certainly smile, learn a tip or two and get some great ideas for you next Disney adventure.

    Series 3 Episode 1: Amy Hart

    Series 3 Episode 1: Amy Hart

    Giovanna kicks off series three chatting all things Disney with TV personality, vlogger and Tower of Terror-lover Amy Hart. Has there ever been a podcast guest who almost knows more about Walt Disney World Resort in Florida than Gi does? Amy certainly comes close, having been eight times with her family plus oodles of flying visits whenever she used to stop over in Orlando while working as cabin crew. As ex cabin crew, Amy has plenty of handy tips for long haul flights with kids. But it’s her Disney Park smarts that are really worth tuning in for, like how to get priority seating for her favourite show, Fantasmic, where to stand for all the parades and why the Disney Genie service really is a game-changer. As for Amy’s Dream Disney Day – she’s been planning it for 15 years! And she’s invited Gi along too. Lucky Gi!

    Series 3 Episode 2: Kate Garraway

    This episode Gi is joined by journalist, broadcaster and soon-to-be-MBE Kate Garraway. Congratulations, Kate! At the time of recording, Kate was patiently waiting for her invite to Buckingham Palace. But that’s not the only royal residence she will have visited this year – as she recently returned from seeing Sleeping Beauty Castle, and its scary dragon, at Disneyland® Paris. Kate cherishes the magical escapism Disneyland Paris has blessed her and her family with over the years, with Peter Pan’s Flight being a particularly happy thought. Yet there’s something new and super from their most recent visit that she can’t stop thinking about. Tune in to find out what it is! Kate’s top tip – never go anywhere without a cagoule. And get someone else to plan your holiday for you. We can’t disagree with that!

    Series 3 Episode 3: Ruth Madeley

    Actor Ruth ‘Merryweather’ Madeley’s first holiday abroad was to Disneyland® Paris. And since that magical family trip many moons ago, she’s flown a little further to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida over and over again. Tune in and you’ll hear all about Ruth’s out-of-control Disney Pin collection, where to get the most indulgent of coffees in the Disney Parks – it sounds dreamy – and why Disney calories don’t count, which is handy during the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. As a wheelchair user, Ruth discusses the added stresses she faces when travelling and how the Guest Services at Walt Disney World take all these stresses away. It’s the perfect destination for wheelchair users. Her top tip – make the most of the Disability Access Service Pass!

    Series 3 Episode 4: Frankie Bridge

    Series 3 Episode 4: Frankie Bridge

    TV presenter, author and Saturday’s singer Frankie Bridge is a 'Disney on Ice citizen of Arendelle' so she really knows her magic. She visited Walt Disney World Resort in Florida ‘for the first time in forever’ when she was nine and went back a few years ago with one of her best buds, our very own Gi! Prepare to hear all about Frankie’s Disney dreams – spoiler alert, she LOVES princesses and Christmas – a Dream Disney Day that features, yes, you guessed it, more funnel cake (Frankie just can’t get enough) and an embarrassing holiday story of Goofy proportions.

    Series 3 Episode 5: Carrie Hope Fletcher

    Series 3 Episode 5: Carrie Hope Fletcher

    Actor, author, singer-songwriter and Gi’s sister-in-law (Tom’s sister) Carrie Hope Fletcher is our first guest to have completed the Disney holiday hattrick of Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland® Paris and Disney Cruise Line. Gi thinks Carrie is the biggest Disney fan she knows – hey, we thought that was Tom?! As it turns out, Carrie has chocolate scented Mickey ears, a wall covered in Loungefly bags and over 25 Disney holidays to look back on, so who are we to disagree? Tune in for an episode bursting with magical memories, dreams of Disney honeymoons and an appreciation of how it’s the little gestures, the sprinklings of pixie dust, that have made a big difference to every one of Carrie’s Disney trips. Oh, and look forward to our first ever Dream Disney Day at sea and, wait for it... more of that mouthwatering funnel cake.

    Series 3 Episode 6: Romesh Ranganathan

    Series 3 Episode 6: Romesh Ranganathan

    Actor, comedian and all-round legend Romesh Ranganathan admits he’s a natural cynic who often looks unimpressed with, well, pretty much everything. Yet he does recall once cracking a smile after riding Ratatouille: The Adventure and being surprisingly thrilled by The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ at Disneyland® Paris. The magic gets us all, eventually! Later this year, Romesh and his family are jetting off to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. And as he’s not a planner. At all. Gi has decided to put together his Dream Disney Day for him. So tune in to hear about some Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge must-dos, a new MARVEL attraction Gi says is the best experience of her life, and because Romesh is vegan, lots and lots of tasty vegan food. We can’t wait to see photos of Romesh living his best Jedi life. May the Force be with him.

HELLO DISNEY

HI I'M HOLLY
THIS JOURNEY TO THE MAGIC DISNEY PODCAST IS AMAZING.

Beaupoet ,

Happy podcast!

Uplifting! You should get James Acaster on as he’s a big fan and can give the take as a foodie. In fact , get James on with Ed Gamble’s wife Charlie ( not Ed) - she is also a Disney big fan of DLP and DLC!

csmith101 ,

Good!

It’s good but you should include the experiences of ordinary people as well as celebrities. There should also be more information on Disneyland Paris as this is more affordable than Walt Disney World.
Also, please provide some information on the original Disneyland in California!
