    Attractions: Star Wars Galaxy's Edge (Part I)

    In this episode, Alex is joined by Ralph Apel to talk about all things Galaxy's Edge! There is so much to cover about this incredible new land created by Disney Imagineers that the two hosts quickly discovered that it was too much to talk about in one episode. So in this episode 1, Ralph and Alex cover 2 of the 3 areas in Galaxy's Edge, The Resistance Area and the Marketplace Area. So, grab your blaster, don, your Jedi robes, and enjoy this exploration of the newest land in Disneyland, Star Wars Galaxy's Edge.

    *Show Note: In the episode Alex mistakenly calls the co-host on Disneyland for Designers Jeremy when in reality his name is Jerrod. We are very sorry for this mistake.

Alchemy

You guys (and one gal) found the recipe to create gold with your Sherman Brothers part 1 episode. It was like a conversation with four friends who I really like, with interesting and insightful comments throughout. Keep it going! This could be the true successor to the old WDW Today podcast with Len, Matt, Mike & Mike.

Did you know this show is great?

Love listening to Alex and Harrison over at Backside of Water Podcast and this show is even better. Just enough Disney magic to get you through til tomorrow. Finding more and more reasons to come back and binge their episodes.

Excellent Disney Podcast

This is an excellent podcast covering tips and tricks to make your next trip to Disney better and less stressful. Their money saving tips are extremely insightful. While the hosts mostly cover Walt Disney World, they do talk about Disneyland from time to time.
