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.

Fantastically fun and informative!

I started listening to this wonderful podcast in preparation for a trip to Tokyo Disney last May. Between it, the tdrexplorer website and chris’ fabulous ebook, I was fully prepared with a wonderful plan. The TDR team covers everything you’d need to know when visiting. Thank you tdrexplorer for helping plan a most wonderful trip and for letting me join you at TDR in spirit every week! It’s so much fun to keep up with you and TDR from all the way in CA!
