My go-to-podcast

Whether I’m driving to work, the store, at the gym, or taking my dog for a long walk, I’m always listening to Dan and Leslie. I’m a huge Disney fanatic, and their positive energy makes me feel like I’m inside the parks. I love all their tips and tricks, and because my fiancé and I are going to Disney World for our honeymoon next December, I have been listening religiously in excitement for our trip. Thank you guys for such a wonderful podcast, keep up all that you do!

LIFE CHANGING

I cannot even begin to describe how much I absolutely adore this podcast. My mom and I love listening to each episode whenever we are in the car, and it truly makes us feel a part of the magic! Thank you Dan and Leslie for spreading your positive joy and love for Disney!

My favorite Disney podcast

Really enjoy this podcast. It’s such a good balance of fun banter, but also well-structured and informative Disney content. We’ve only gone to Disney World once (I grew up on Disneyland), but loved our trip. I can relate to what you say about Disney bringing you together as a family so much. I recently started listening to episodes with my 5-year-old son as we are getting ready for our December mother-son trip. Also a big shout-out to your YouTube videos! Love the dining reviews.
