    Come Inside Super Nintendo World!

    Come Inside Super Nintendo World!

    I was given an early look at Universal Studios Hollywood's new Super Nintendo World and I'm taking you along with me! (Yahooooo!)
    PLEASE NOTE: This is an updated version of a previously uploaded episode which contained an error. Universal Express, which offers skip-the-line benefits on rides and attractions throughout Universal Studios Hollywood, will NOT allow guests to skip the line on Mario Kart: Bowser's Challenge when Super Nintendo World opens. It will only allow them to skip the reservation system process to freely enter the land, one time per day, when the reservation system is in place. My sincerest apologies!

Amazing storyteller!!

Carley is such an amazing storyteller! I have a love for theme parks and there is no one I trust more to share her experiences, love and critical opinions. She captivates you with her personality that comes pouring out in every aspect of her show. Carley is always honest and open with her perspective, even when she has a critical view. I know that I can trust the information she shares, and that mixed with how funny and infections her personality are keep me coming back.

Entertaining with great info!!

Carlye is my go to Disney expert! She clearly loves Disney as much as any of us, and isn’t afraid to give her honest opinions of when Disney is truly magical, and when it falls short. She is also hilarious and entertaining and finds the best stories and interviews to bring to the podcast. I love getting all the up to date info and news (amazing daily D23 expo shows!!) as well as deep dives into Disney details and lore, all in one place! I’ve been listening since the beginning and will listen for many years to come!!

Love this podcast!

One of my favorite Disney/ Universal podcasts! I absolutely love the “Hidden Mickey” episodes and finding celebrities that are just as obsessed with Disney as me! So fun!! 💕
