WDW Radio # 503 - Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea Review

I don’t want to give too much away, but I can tell you from the outset that Tokyo DisneySea became my favorite Disney park anywhere, not long after I first stepped through its gates. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. But I’m getting ahead of myself, as this week, we are going to take a close, in-depth, and oh-so-very delicious trip to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DIsneySea, as we recap our recent visit, share a first-timers guide to the Tokyo Disney Parks, and more as we take you through a best of the best of the Tokyo Disney Parks. We’ll also explain why we have to go back, when… and how you can join us when we do!

WDW Radio # 499 - The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge LIVE Review

Sometimes, in Walt Disney World, you need to venture outside of your park, resort, or even comfort zone a little bit in order to discover some delicious dining experiences. This week, we travel to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, where we seek out one of those often overlooked dining locations. Join us this week LIVE at The Mara, the counter service location at Jambo House, for a sampling of African-inspired dishes… and of course, a few desserts.

WDW Radio # 496 - Adventures by Disney to China Recap - Part 1 - Hong Kong and Beijing

WDW Radio # 496 - Adventures by Disney to China Recap - Part 1 - Hong Kong and Beijing

In September, we embarked on a unique group Adventures by Disney to China (the country, not the pavilion), with stops in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai. What made this one special, and different than other Adventures, is that we modified the trip to include stops in the Disney parks as well. This week, I invite some fellow adventurers, friends, and members of the WDW Radio Nation to join me as we recap this epic experience. In part one of our review, we’ll discuss Hong Kong, Beijing, the Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China. Of course, we’ll also take a close look at Hong Kong Disneyland, including our favorite attractions and experiences on our Adventures by Disney, as well as the food, some unexpected surprises, and maybe even sneak peeks as to what may be coming to the domestic parks.

WDW Radio # 495 - Lost Parades of Walt Disney World

Enjoying the parades at the Disney parks is more than a way to just kill some time before your next meal. In fact, in many ways it’s a rite of passage. The characters, dancers, floats, and music offer more than a show, but an experience to be enjoyed by kids of all ages. This week, we’ll look at not just the history of Walt Disney World parades, but the surprising number and variety through the years as we explore the Lost Parades of Walt Disney World.
