Show 35 - Girls, Gondola’s and Grub!

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Fortnightly Disney fun with Kim and Michelle; talking about the highlights of Orlando, from Disney and beyond, all from a feminine perspective.

In this episode the girls are joined by guests Jeff Dixon and Jayne Phipps to talk about an attraction from the past, The Skyway, and then they share their favourite foods that they dream about prior to their next trips.

Skyway Feature This fabulous gondola lift attraction delivered and delighted guests as they were transported from Fantasyland to Tomorrowland. Since it's closure in 1999 there has been many a debate over why it closed; join the girls, with budding Disney historian and author, Jeff Dixon, and self confessed Disney holiday-holic Jayne Phipps as they chat through what it was, the benefits and some secrets of the 'buckets in the sky'.

Show 34 - DDP, ITM & us Girls

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Review of how both us Minxes have used the Disney Dining Plan and we also chat to Mr Inside the Magic, Ricky Brigante.

Arggh Kimmie hates acronyms, so I had to title the show especially for her! Anyway, hello and welcome Minxsters to the show notes for episode 34 of The Minnie Minxes Disney Podcast.

We start the show with a mouth-watering chat about the Disney Dining Plan. Both myself and Kim have used the dining plan and we have put together some of our stories and tips in a twenty-five minute segment - but boy it was incredibly difficult but I think we covered the main points! Though there are more details on our blog, so please make a trip over there. If after all that you have anymore questions, please do not hesitate to email us.

Then our interview! A week ago I had the pleasure of being joined by Becky Manion to chat with Ricky Brigante about his life, starting Inside the Magic and then we moved on to talking about the wonderful theme parks in Orlando.

Plus three facts from Ciarán, themed around Star Wars Weekends it sure is a bumper episode which we hope you will enjoy!
