Best Disney Podcast!

If you’re looking for an informative podcast that is immersed in personal stories and the emotions tied to the Disney parks, this podcast is for you.

Bruce and Connie share the best aspect of Disney: the personal stories that bring lifelong memories!

I love seeing where their ranks match with my ranks, and I love when they mention attractions I haven’t given much time to.

I look forward to ever podcast because it enlivens enthusiasm as I look forward to my next trip!

This is a great family friendly Disney podcast. I love their take on all things Disney. They are definitely not boring. I love it so much that I was listening to the very old episode 15, and that is where the low expectations motto started. The audio quality is amazing.
