Dedicated Entrance for Annual Passholders at WDW

To begin the podcast this week Dan and I discuss the announcement that annual passholders at Walt Disney World are going to be getting their own dedicated entrance into each of the four main parks. This is set to begin on December 21st and run until at least the end of January 2017.

Sellout for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

As Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party sells out for the rest of 2016, we chat through the other Christmas activities you can enjoy at Walt Disney World if you have missed out on tickets. Of course the shows favourite Christmas show to shout about, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM makes an appearance!

SeaWorld Abu Dhabi to Open in 2022

Dan and I discuss the announcement of the brand new SeaWorld coming to Abu Dhabi and the fact that it will be the first park introduced by SeaWorld to not contain Orcas!

Increase in Security at Walt Disney World

There are strong rumours that Disney are about to massively increase security at the resort by introducing more metal detectors so that all guests must pass through them before entering the parks. Dan and I chat through why we think this is a good idea (despite it being annoying) and also chat through the rumour that hotels within the resort will also be getting bag checks before check-in.

Ryan gets pretty excited by the new cast member outfits (pictured below) that shows off all 12 Monorail colours in the outfit, Dan does not.
