On the show, we talk about the upcoming D23 event in Anaheim, which is on Friday 14th til Sunday 16th August 2015. Sarah shares her top tips and strategies to be able to see the hot tickets. If you wish to plan your own schedule, why not visit to D23 website.

Next on our news agenda, was Shanghai Disneyland. The park opens in 2016 and there will be six themed lands, plus a Disneyland and Toy Story Hotel, a Disneytown and a Wishing Star Park.

Both Sarah and Michelle agreed it looked awesome and also discussed rumours that some of the attractions will be coming across to the USA parks. 

Then, Michelle shared details of a brand new tour available at Walt Disney World, Fort Wilderness Resort, called Walt's Wilderness. This five hour tour costs $109 and whilst it showcases many of the things to do at Fort Wilderness it also connects everything to stories about Walt.

Also, Sarah discussed the 60th celebrations that occurred at Disneyland and her disappointment over the event only being 18 minutes long. Despite waiting three hours, Michelle got a better view from 5000 miles away! But Sarah did win out as she got to spend the day in Disneyland with her lovely husband, Richard, as well as try one of the 100,000 free cupcakes Disney gave away.
