Best DVC Podcast

I found these guys researching about DVC. I started listening around episode 6 and have been a faithful listener since. The guys, Tom, Trevor and Damon all have unique perspectives and opinions about DVC and Disney. Above all else though, the show is just fun. The guys seem to really enjoy each other and just have a lot of fun, whether it’s picking on Tom for not riding roller coasters, or Trevor being Canadian or Damon’s non-contrarian opinions, they just really mesh well together. A must listen to.

Mostly Good

So far this is the best Disney podcast that I’ve found. As a big Disney fan and a Passholder to the parks I really enjoy about half of the content, the stuff about general Disney news, etc. It’s the other half of the show regarding DVC that I’m not really into, but I don’t hold that against the show at all. The main problem I have is with Damon. I don’t really get why he’s on the show. It seems like someone is forcing him to do it and he’s miserable. He’s also not interested in half the topics so he ends up dropping out for 10-20 minutes at a time, only to chime in that he hates or is bored with something when called upon. Sometimes he arrives late. Sometimes he leaves early because he’s “tired.” He’ll often belittle the other guys for liking something he doesn’t. Just my opinion but I think the show would be better with someone more passionate. You can be the “bad guy” of the show without being miserable.

Great group

Tom, Trevor, and Damon are an excellent team and provide great entertainment focused on DVC and Disney parks. I’ve been a listener from the beginning and have loved every minute of audio I’ve listened to.
