Welcome to the show notes for the Disney Dream Girls Podcast, show number 330, for Sunday 30th August 2020. If you want to listen, whilst reading these notes, just click the player below or alternatively find us on iTunes, Libsyn, Stitcher Radio, or any good podcast catching apps.
On this week's show, Michelle and Jayne re-cap their summer, celebrate a much loved Disney character, and look ahead to Autumn in the Disney parks.

On the 30th August 1936, the very first cartoon strip solely devoted to Donald Duck was published in newspapers. So to celebrate this, Michelle quizzed Jayne about her Donald Duck knowledge. So look below to see how you would do on these questions?

1. What is Donald's full name?
2. What year was the character Donald Duck created?
3. What was the name of the feature cited as being Donald's first appearance? 
4. Can you name any of the voice talents who have provided the voice of Donald Duck? 
5. Can you name any of Donald's relatives?

We have posted the answers at the bottom of these show notes!

It is fairly easy to find Donald at Walt Disney World and he can be found in Mexico (EPCOT), Dinoland USA (Animal Kingdom), Silly Sideshow (Magic Kingdom), and at the entrance to Disney Hollywood Studios. 

At the Disneyland Resort, he can be found around Main Street (Disneyland Park) or around Buena Vista Street (DCA). 

Over in Disneyland Paris, he can be found around the hub area or either in Fantasyland or Adventureland. For the Studios, he is usually in the Production Courtyard. 
Our next feature reviewed the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris offerings for the Halloween season.   

Disneyland Paris

The season starts on the 26th of September and runs through to the 1st of November.  There will be no soirees to attend; early park closings; no parades and no fireworks.  But there will be lots of villains out and about and characters in their spooky finery. 
What we are excited about is the food and drink offerings - it sure looks like Disney is upping their game for this season and we can not wait to report back on these. 
Walt Disney World
This year, the season starts on the 15th of September and will run until 31st October. As with Paris, the experience will be very much paired back but Main Street USA will be decorated and there will be an abundance of treats and merchandise to tempt you. 
The big news is costumes - during this time guests are going to be allowed to attend the parks in costumes (something previously reserved for the Halloween party). However, guests must abide by the costume rules of Disney and of course - wear a face mask. 
We are incredibly fortunate as many listeners have already let us know that they will be travelling to the parks during this time and we can not wait to see their pictures and hear their trip reports.  

That is about it for this week and we hope you have enjoyed reading this blog as well as listening to the podcast. You can find us @DisDreamGirls on Instagram and Twitter. We have the Disney Dream Girls page on Facebook as well as the Disney Dream Girls Podcast Family.
