The Disney Exchange is Lisa, Dave and me, Nick!

A smoooooth start to the first episode of 2017 awaits you lucky listeners.

Lisa thanks some very lovely people for wonderful reviews on social media. Thank you all!

We are some people’s favorite Disney podcast. Please don’t let them know there are other Disney Podcasts. Shhhhhh.

We’re charismatic. So there!

We discuss the Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 preview, and talk briefly about Rogue One. Possible spoiler alert!

I mess up all sorts of stuff, such as the Rogue One droid’s name, which is K-2SO, and call Baymax from Big Hero Six Betamax. Yes, Betamax. Oops.

Lisa goes on to share highlights and lowlights from her trip to Walt Disney World during Christmas week.

She shares her experience with the new-ish Express Bus service between parks was well worth the price of $24 per day.

 Her Bay Lake view at Bay Lake Tower was spectacular!

Lisa was not overly impressed with the Wild Africa Trek, and talks about her experiences, good and bad.

Lisa got to meet friends, Carmen and Brian aka Peas and Carrots on YouTube.

The Candlelight Processional, with special Cal Ripken Jr. She got a dining package, and that worked out well.

Lisa’s review of Flying Fish is not stellar. The food was very good, but her service was lackluster.

She wants her money back for the Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam dessert party. We go on to talk about the best way to get your money’s worth. Hint, it involves alcoholic beverages.

Lisa and her son had a great time doing the Wilderness Explorer program at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Dave and Lisa share their thoughts on the announcement of the new opening show at the Magic Kingdom starting this month, which leads to a discussion on the new Annual Pass lines at the parks.

Dave is currently (if you are listening Sunday 1/8 in the morning) running the WDW marathon! Go Dave!

The Wheel of Distiny topic this week: What was your favorite Disney movie of 2016?

On a very serious note, the Disney Podcast community suffered the loss of one of it’s own when Alan of the Enchanted Tiki Talk Podcast passed away on Christmas Eve. He leaves behind a wife, Blair and baby daughter, Grace. A GoFundMe page has been set up to collect for Grace’s college fund.

You can send us an email at [email protected] and reach out with show suggestions, submit Wheel of Distiny topics, or request a listener number (remember those?) on Facebook:, Twitter:

If you would be so kind as to leave us a 5 star review on any of the social media sites or iTunes, we’d really appreciate it. Thank you!

And, as always, thank you for listening to The Disney Exchange!
