Dedicated to Disneyland Paris Podcast

With new Disneyland Paris CEO Catherine Powell due to start in July, we put the question to you listeners - what should Catherine concentrate on first, what problems should she tackle? One topic got mentioned a lot, along with a whole bunch of great suggestions, and chocolates too. As usual all the latest Disneyland Paris news and rumours was discussed too - renovated Hotel Cheyenne rooms, Pineapple Whip, Euro 2016, pasta and pizza, blinking Mickey Mouse and much 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?

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?
