Best Tokyo Disney Content!

I love listening to this podcast as I plan for my Tokyo Disneyland trip. I’ve been dreaming about going to Tokyo Disneyland and Sea ever since I was a little girl, and this podcast makes me feel like I can make my dreams come true! Chris and Trish’s commentary about TDR feels authentic and they keep it real when it seems like Disney is slipping up or doing something amazing. Since they are locals I know their advice is current and they keep things fresh. I feel more confident when planning my trip. Love the vibes. Keep up the good work!

So Informative

Can’t wait to be able to go to Japan. This show is super useful and hilarious. Went back and listened from the beginning. Interesting to see the evolution of the parks. The USJ info is especially gold.
