On this week's show, we discuss the latest news about Tiana's Bayou Adventure, D23 - The Ultimate Disney Fan Event and the Enchanting Extras Collection.  

Bayou Criters

The names (and a little of the attraction story plat) was revealed this week. 

What are your thoughts on the story line? Will we ever get an opening date for Disneyland? For me, I can not wait to see - first hand - this attraction.  

D23

Taking place on the 9th through 11th August in the Anaheim Convention Centre as well as the Honda Centre. Tickets went on sale on the 26th March (for some D23 members).

Will you be going?

Enchanting Extra Collection 

This linked really well to what we were discussing last week about the additional activities you can do at your resorts. We discussed what this collection includes and then moved on to the current theme park tours being offered at Walt Disney World. 

Have you done a tour? Would you recommend it to others?

We then created a couple of tours of our own... time will tell if Disney will increase their offerings to give us fans more backstage insights.
