ABOUT


The idea of having my own podcast on all things Disney, has been buzzing in my head for quite a long time and when my dear friend and fellow Disney lover, Tom Burka, accepted my proposal to join me down this rabbit hole, I knew it was time to set sail!
With this podcast we'll bring you the latest news from WDW, we will be covering the parks, the hotels and resorts, the finger-licking snacks and the I-dont-need-a-belt-anymore meals.
We'll discuss the latest movies and the heart warming classics.
We will bring you a little bit of extra magic every week to keep you heart young and your dreams alive.
So put on your "mouse ear(buds)" and fly away with us to the happiest place on earth!

Ricky DjTechnoid Reed

DJ/Music Composer

I grew up Disney. Raised in Southern California, we went to Disneyland all the time. When I was about 11, my family moved to Georgia, and I was drawing a lot at the time to keep myself busy, then shortly after that Walt Disney World opened, and I was saved! Been going there ever since. I became a DJ in 1978, and always wanted to make my own music, especially geared around Disney somehow. Technology finally caught up with my dreams, and now I love making whimsical mixes around all the things that I love. That's me in a nutshell... a Disney Fool with a computer!

Andrea is a goofball Disney person. Her love for Disney started as a child, but she really became a fanatic in her adult life when she started taking her children to Walt Disney World.

You can follow all her shenanigans on Instagram.
