Helpful, funny & honest!

Doug and Derek give their honest opinions on the ins and outs of the Disney parks. I find myself laughing and taking notes as I listen and plan my next trip. Their reviews and tips are helpful to new and return Disney travelers. Been a listener since near the beginning and now a Patreon supporter as well. Keep up the great work guys!
