Show 11 – The Girls take on the Banks

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

This week, Banks Lee, from the Orlando Attractions Magazine, and Tara Petar, joins Kim and Michelle. With Banks, we explore some of the non-theme park attractions that are in Florida and what an array of treats we found! Banks, as you may know, is a theme park thrill ride addict and a Disney obsessive so we couldn’t let Banks go without him talking about his favourite theme park must dos as well as sharing some stories along the way. Like his page on Facebook or follow him on Twitter @Bankslee. Then we chat with Tara Petar as she shares some Disney magic from her recent trip to Disney Land Paris Resort and gives out hints on what to do when time is limited. We finish the show with a review of a new Unofficial Disney Land Paris app to help advise and safe time.

Episode 10 – Brave Girls

What a busy two weeks we have had! Firstly listeners, whether old friends or new listeners can we apologise for the extra effort you have had to go to over obtaining your fortnightly fix of The Minnie Minxes.

Anyway, the show goes on and what an episode we have in store for you this week. Two amazing guests join us in this bumper episode. So we welcome, Sue Farrell and Laura Pearson.

Sue Farrell is the fairly new addition to the Disney Moms panel and what’s more she is from Cheshire in the UK, not quite Yorkshire but near enough! She shares all, from her multiple applications to the training she underwent as she joined the Disney Moms panel. Sue’s addition to the panel means there are now two active UK panelists and as Sue says there is no such thing as a silly question – so check out their webpage and ask away!

Our feature is all about the new PIXAR movie Brave. Brave is set for release on the 22nd June in Hollywood and it’s European premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival on 30th June. However Minnie Minxes have the news well in advance for you! Laura Person shares all from the press junket she attended a couple of weeks back that included a screening and a big push for tourism Scotland. We also share the audio from the press conference.

In Ask Minxie Michelle, a listener taxes Michelle with what there is in the Magic Kingdom that would appeal to an 11 year old boy – lucky for Michelle she can call on an expert of her own – her son!

Recommended Podcast Have a listen to Unofficial Universal Orlando Podcast as they not only have a fabulous trip report, news and views they have a feature on how Universal can help if have special needs, such as mobility or autism. This is something close to The Minnie Minxes hearts and is something we had planned to cover from the Disney angle in an upcoming show. So if you have ANY questions on this topic please drop us a note.

Please if you listen via iTunes leave us a lovely review but make sure it is on the feed that lists shows 1 to 10 - thanks guys!
