419 - The Disney News Natter

Welcome to this week's Disney Dream Girls Podcast - show number 419 for Sunday 17th July 2022. 

If you would like to ensure you never miss a show, please subscribe to us via your podcast catching place or alternatively you can listen in using the audio player below.On this week's show we have a bit of a natter about a range of news items, from merchandise released for the Food and Wine Festival (over at EPCOT), the reporting log sinking at Splash Mountain in Walt Disney World before ending off chatting about the rumoured return of a much loved Disney attraction.

We love a good piece of merchandise and this year's Food and Wine Festival has plenty for us to add to our wish list! 


We also discuss that many character meals are returning. For some these are a fabulous way to meet the characters whilst enjoying class Disney food. However, for others the price makes in out of reach. What's your thoughts? Let us know!


We also discuss attractions from ride breakdowns to possible bringing back past fan favourites. What attraction would you like to see come back?
