Welcome to The Great British Mickey Waffle. Brought to you by a ragtag band of Brits, united in their love of all things Disney, come together to ‘Waffle’ on about the Magic.
Episode 42: Zac Brown Shares A Waffle - June 2021
It’s June which means it’s time for another episode in our “GBMW Shares a Waffle” series.
This month Claire, ably assisted by Ben, Becca and John, had the absolute pleasure in chatting with the always chipper, cheery and very interesting Zac Brown.
No, not THAT Zac Brown (the one with the band), but OUR Zac Brown - the one who is a part of many of the Disney communities we love to be part of regularly.
Zac’s own podcast - The Zac Brown Show - has been around for about 18 months and it features him having some really fabulous conversations with a huge variety of guests. Some of the most notable are Trader Brandon (Brandon Kleyla) who was an Imagineer working on Trader Sam’s; musician Corey Jess, and some well known friends of the GBMW - Jason Canapp, Carlos Silva and of course Lou Mongello.
Zac proved to be a superb guest - he faced our Carousel of Questions and told us about his dinner party plans. We talked about our excitement for the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind Coaster and he discussed with us what motivates him about leaving a legacy (not the EPCOT tiny photo version) and why music is so important in his life.
We had so much fun with Zac, and it’s highly likely that he will be back - there was so much more to talk about!
We love it when a guest has more to say than we do (and this is pretty difficult when John is in the team) - this was definitely one of those shows!
The Zac Brown Show can be found on your podcast provider of choice, and he can be followed on Instagram @thezacbrownshow and @itszacbrown.
Episode 41: “Some Celebration, Huh?” - June 2021
For this month’s show Ben is in charge, as we take a trip back down memory lane as we reminisce and celebrate our 2nd anniversary of The GB Mickey Waffle. We share the details on Disney’s latest offer for UK guests and whether it has influenced any of our plans and we hear some lovely messages from our friends and supporters of the show.
Ben also has his turn on presenting his “Come Disney With Me” which is a new segment which debuted in last month's show. Make sure you go back and check that one out.
It’s a Wafflers’ take on the classic TV shows similar to Come Dine with Me, where every month, one member of the GBMW team will take the opportunity to present 3 things to their teammates and ask for their ratings and views!
Those 3 things will be:
A Ride or attraction
A restaurant of eatery
A show, parade or additional experience.
Check out our Facebook Community - The Wafflers’ Arms or our website for the current leaderboard - www.gbmickeywaffle.com
You can find links to everything we do, including the weekly Wafflers’ Wednesday shows, the once a month Wafflers’ Assemble lives that happen on the 3rd Friday of every month (so set your reminder now for Friday 18th June!) plus our monthly shows on the 1st and 15th via our website - www.gbmickeywaffle.com, or @GBMickeyWaffle on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram
So thank you to my fellow Wafflers for joining our Anniversary celebration with many more to come in the future. There is just one thing left to say…

Episode 39: Do or do not, there is no DDP - May 2021
Disney Dining Plan – to do or not to do!! Sounds simple or sounds daunting, hope we can help!
Claire takes the anchor duties for the first time in quite a while, joined by the whole team of John, Sammie, Gill, Peter, Ben and Becca to continue that discussion from the past few months. Food…. and especially trying to ascertain “Is the DDP EVER really free?”
We recognise that the dining plan isn’t currently an option,but looking forward to planning and booking into 2022 and beyond, we thought it was definitely something worth waffling about to help plan your next trip to WDW.
The food talk will most certainly make you hungry and remind you of those restaurants you really love.
A new feature, brand new for May, we introduce “Come Disney with Me”.
It’s a Wafflers’ take on the classic TV shows similar to Come Dine with Me, where every month, one Waffler will take the opportunity to present 3 things to the GBMW team and ask for their ratings and views!
Once you listen, join in on our socials to share your thoughts too as this is a fantastic way to share some of the things we know, love or possibly don’t, throughout Walt Disney World.
