I'll be adding this podcast into other networks soon but here's a quick summary and helpful links. You'll have to listen to get the good details. Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to Zipadee Doo Dah Disney

So I decided to start a podcast. It's mostly for my friends and family but I figured, why not put it 022519-ZDDD-LOGO-V3
online if it's decent? It's about my experiences and tips for planning and enjoying Florida's Walt Disney World. I've been going there for over 10 years, twice per year. I L-O-V-E it and I L-O-V-E helping people plan their trip. A podcast seemed like the best formula so everyone I know can listen and enjoy my tips. 

Episodes 1 - 3 are about surviving the most crowded weeks in Disney World and focus on the week between Christmas and New Year's --> often called hell week but I enjoy it so much and I think I have great methods for surviving that week. So give a listen and let me know your thoughts!

Link to iTunes coming soon. 

Let's go on a ride,

Eric
