Thursdays Have Never Been So Theme Parky

Jen and Frank. The ultimate sibling podcast pair, discussing disney, on a thursday, from the tri-state area, of all time. Love the show. Love them both so much. Nostalgia lives here. Tangets always welcome and encouraged. Just don't ask them how they feel about change. #Horn
