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!
