A Weekly Must for WDWatchers

The Disney Dish is an absolute must for Disney news junkies and history aficionados. The hosts are incredibly knowledgeable and they are appropriately critical — neither delusional in their optimism nor exhausting in their pessimism. They share historical facts and current insights that I don’t read /hear anywhere else. (Check out the recent episode on the leadership change at the company to see what I mean.) Finally, they really seem to like their jobs — and listeners.

THE best Disney podcast!

I always enjoy each episode of this podcast! I love the inside scoop and the news and discussions of all things Disney. The banter between Jim and Len is always entertaining. The jokes are funny and stories are fascinating! I appreciate the work they do to prepare for these shows and their honest opinions. I’ve listened weekly since the beginning. It is always a highlight of my day!
