Ep. 75 - Let's Talk Disney with Special Guests Eve & Brittany!
Hey everybody! So, this is just a guess, but most of you probably didn’t get to make the Disney marathon a month ago… Am I right? Well, we live in exciting times, and today we are bringing the Disney marathon to you (in the form of a podcast episode)!!! Haha…. Yes, today is our longest episode to date, and it’s ALLLLLL about the mouse! There are entire podcasts centered around Disney, y’all, and we tried to cram it all into one episode. But hang with us, because it is packed with realllllly good info. We figured there are a ton of you headed there for spring break, and then a ton of you that have never been (or not been in a while), and the thought of trying to plan a trip is super overwhelming! We brought along TWO guests to help out with this one. Our first is Eve, who has worked as a travel agent specializing in Disney planning. She’s pictured below with her husband and son, Felix.
Our second guest is actually our first REPEAT guest! Y’all remember Miss Madden from our kindergarten episode? Well, she is an actual “cast member” (Disney employee) when she’s not teaching! She’s pictured below with her new husband (congrats!) and parents at Animal Kingdom.
This episode was so informative and super fun to record! The place to begin is at Disneyworld.com. This is where you can set up and manage your account, buy tickets, make dining reservations and set up your fast passes. It will sync with the My Disney Experience App, which is a must-download onto your smartphone! Once you are in Orlando on your vacation, this will be your lifeline to your account and navigating the parks! One of the other things we mentioned was the Disney Food Blog - all the things to know about eating at the parks!
Here are a few pics from our own recent trips to visit the mouse!
We mentioned how you can check out YouTube point-of-view Disney ride videos — like this one from Expedition Everest! (Google any ride, including the indoor ones with the lights on!) Brittany gave a shout out to her mom, who runs the NashvilleMade IG account. (Jennifer totally geeked out when she realized this is Brittany’s mom!) Other awesome resources that we mentioned are The Tim Tracker, The Main Street Mouse, Living by Disney, and Lou Mongello.
This episode was packed with information and tips - we hope it is super helpful when you plan your trip to Disney! Please let us know any questions you may have, and we can *maybe* try to answer, but for sure pass along to our “experts”!
From our “I’m Totally Into…” segment:
Brittany is totally into The Hidrate Bottle - what a cool idea!
Eve is totally into her new Tidylife Air Fryer. Loved all the ideas of what you can do with this!
We had so much fun reliving our recent trips to Disney and learning new trick and tips for the future. HUGE thanks to Eve and Brittany for helping us with this episode and teaching us so many things! Have a grrrrreat! (said like Mickey) week, mamas!
P.S. If you are looking to head to Disney soon, Eve gave us some names of planners she recommends:
