It's two weeks since Steve and Mark were in Disneyland Paris together, though Mark was only actually in the parks for 7 hours! Steve was there for 5 days and has many tales of his new love for characters, character dining and experiencing parades in a new way. There are bewildering stories of guests and their love of boats, Cast Member magic, pin trading and so much more. As if that wasn't enough, there was also the Disneyland Paris Star Wars Season of the Force (press) release to discuss - so a packed show.

With both Steve and Mark being in Disneyland Paris last week, neither had time to chase down any news and rumours for this episode, though there is the exquisitely worded Disneyland Paris Halloween 2016 press release which got discussed. The meat of the shows features an interview with Star Wars writer and Disney fan Amy Ratcliffe, who after hosting at Star Wars Celebration Europe took a day trip to Disneyland Paris. Hear the thoughts of someone whose home park is the original Disneyland, and what Amy made of Ratatouille, Pirates of the Caribbean, Phantom Manor and how she was duped onto Crush’s Coaster. One thing was missed during our chat, and I’m directly quoting Amy for all of you to read here: I realized I forgot to say how much I loved the DLP version of a dole whip :) That being Pineapple Whip, the subject of much contention these past few months.
