Amazing

I absolutely love this podcast! The trip reports are so informative, and I always look forward to them. They are my little escape during busy weeks. I also love the variety of different types of trips that are featured . It’s opened my mind to some ideas for future Disney vacations.

My go to Disney podcast

I will still give this podcast a 5 but sometimes the short delay that happens between each guest sentence is frustrating to listen to. It doesn’t always happen but it was very noticeable on Matt’s RunDisney podcast.

Best Disney podcast for trip planning

I have been listening to Shannon since the before times and absolutely fell in love with her trip reports. They are my favorite part. A few years ago I went back and listened to all the past trip reports and now cannot wait for a new episode to release on Tuesdays. I get super excited when they are extra long (2.5 to 3.5 hrs) because I listen to and from work. They help me to pass the time and I have gained so much planning knowledge that I have put to good use in several of my recent trips. Thank you WDW Prep and Shannon!!
