Great banter and information

Love hearing Disney news from two enthusiasts. The banter between Chris and Glenn shows how two friends can have differing opinions about rides, meals, best time to get to parks etc and give the listener an excellent idea of what to expect on their own journey to the most magical place on Earth.

the show about nothing....

If Seinfeld, Jeff Gordon and the Disney channel had a love child... this podcast would be the rightful heir to the show about nothing. Chuck full of the wit and witticisms of Glenn and Chris, no topic is off limits. From Disney to NASCAR to Star Wars... to general geekery... authentic insights are passed on unflitered from the seedy underbelly of dedicated fandom. Keep them coming!
