Great for new cruisers and all Disney fans!

I subscribe to many podcasts, and it's hard to make time for all of them! After listening to a few episodes, I knew I had to make room for the DCLDuo.

I'm planning my first Disney cruise, and I'm picking up many tips from Sam, Brian, and all of their guests. The podcast quality is top-notch, and the conversations are always a fun listen. I like that the podcast sometimes goes into cruise-adjacent topics like travel, theme parks, and all things Disney.

Frank from Astoria ,

Great for the wishers, dreamers, and cruisers!

Love Disney - love cruising... hellooooooo! Brian and Sam do a remarkable job providing strong, reliable cruise content! Worth listening if you’re thinking about, planning for, or reliving the glory of DCL! - Frank from @DillosDiz

Jessa LC ,

Excellent variety

Started just as the pandemic hit, this pod cast has ‘visited’ various ships, itineraries, ports of departure, port adventures, Disneyland, Disney World, and more. If you are planning a Disney cruise or planning a Disney trip, or just Wish-ing you could, listen!
