On December 20 1975 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is re-issued to cinemas for the sixth time, and in this landmark 75th episode of the Dedicated to Disneyland Paris podcast, we talk almost exclusivity about The Forest of Enchantment.

In 1974 Disney released the film The Island at the Top of the World, and this is episode 74 of the Dedicated to Disneyland Paris Podcast, where we celebrate the very Disney resort that has a Hyperion airship in it, from the aforementioned film. There’s lots of news and rumours to discuss this week, from new runDisney information, two bits of food news, refurbishment updates, Forest of Enchantment changes and more. Then there was the Podcast Question of the Week: What time of day/night do you most like to be in Disneyland Paris, where and why? We have lots of answers from all you, and some opinions of our own, of course.

Tuesday morning, April 12th 2016, was not just the 24th birthday of Disneyland Paris, but the morning we got news that rocked the Disneyland Paris community. Less than 2 years into his tenure as CEA, Tom Wolber would be leaving, and in his place we would welcome Catherine Powell. We discus how Tom did, what Catherine brings to the table, and what this could mean for Disneyland Paris, with input from our lovely listeners too.

No longer in Disneyland Paris, Steve and Mark discuss the week's news, which included a few price hikes, a new hotel rumour and a continuation of the great breakfast debate! Then it was over to you, the lovely listeners, as we challenged you to suggest a film that is under-represented in Disneyland Paris and how you would like to see more of it - an attraction, character, hotel or whatever you wanted. Because we had so much feedback it's a bumper show, and that's with us having to be selective about which answers to read out and discuss. Further proof that we have the best podcast listeners in the world.

Just days after the 2016 Disneyland Paris AGM, Steve is joined by Martin, who attended, to discuss what went down. We hear about the finances, the plans for the future, and the many interesting questions from shareholders in attendance - often the highlight of the whole event! There is some news about runDisney registrations, and when is a Vinylmation not a Vinylmation - when it's a hipster? Feedback from you lovely listeners includes the question of what is their to do off resort, and should you even venture off site or stay and enjoy Disneyland Paris every second of every day?

Episode 68: You Can't Hairspray A Horse!

It's all about Spring in this episode, as Steve and Mark discuss the 2016 Spring season in Disneyland Pairs - from Characters to Eggs, Mary Poppins to Tinkerbell and so much more. A whole bunch of you tweeted us your thoughts on Spring, so we had plenty to talk about there, including Weebles, of course. We finally get round to opening the mail bag and reading your emails - covering topics such as essential places to eat in Disneyland Paris, a missing Tiana, and using the baby swap with no baby, or not!
