A new Disney podcast by three WDW obsessed former CP's who learn the facts they should already know about Walt Disney World.




Episode 41: Show About Nothing

Not much to say about a show about nothing! What's the deal with airplane food? But this episode is not really about "nothing", its about Disney World! And its about current news and rumors and its about our upcoming trip! So much to say really...so come hang with us for an hour (and a half...sorry, we needed more time to talk about nothing). Enjoy! @disneyphilharpodcast @disphilharpod

An amazing story as old as time itself, but still includes way too many Will Smith songs. And though each of us has our own individual...


Episode 39: The Sorcerer's Hat (A Great Debate)

This episode is just about as crazy as the idea to erect a 122 foot hat in the center of an otherwise perfectly themed Hollywood Studio set in the 1930's. But we thought the best (and most fun) way to do an episode about the Sorcerer's Hat was to have a good old fashioned debate about it and have each side present (1) the reasons why it sucked and (2) a few reasons why maybe it was great! So please join us as Laura and Alison go head to head in a ridiculously fun debate (dis)organized by a...
