We even play a ‘snippet’ of that first episode, so you’ll know we’re not just goofing around! Really. It stunk! 🙂  And, of course, what look back episode would be complete without some bloopers? We share some of our favorites, including Joyce’s infamous water bowl blooper! (Yeah, it was THAT funny!). And, if all that’s not enough, our great friend and sponsor Randy Crane from Mouse Ear Vacations joins us to chat about his recent Walk In Walt’s Disneyland Footsteps tour, a few goings on in the world of travel, and he makes a HUGE announcement. You’ll have to tune in to find out, but believe us…it’s HUGE. OR, rather, tiny…AND…Russell Flores, author of the best selling book, “Seen Un-Seen Disneyland, What you See at Disneyland but never really SEE” joins us to discuss some changes at one of our FAVORITE dining establishments in Carsland, among a few other fun things…See, a BIG EPISODE!
