Our Cast Of Characters
Heyo! I’m Justin and I live in Nashville, TN! My first visit to WDW was in the mid 1980’s and I’ve been intrigued and addicted to Disney stuff all of my life whether it’s Disney Parks and history, Disney movies, or the Disney video games they have released over the years. My favorite thing to do at WDW is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. When I’m not watching a YouTube or Periscope of Illuminations or Happily Ever After, I’m usually sitting somewhere humming music from the Haunted Mansion, Horizons/Carousel of Progress, or Pirates of the Caribbean. I watched Wishes for nearly it’s last 50 days in its existence thanks to Periscope!
I take my family to Walt Disney World every year and I love sharing the magic with my two boys. Before we even get home they ask when we are going again.
My wife shares my untethered addiction to all things Disney and we even have an entire room in our house dedicated to all of our Disney memorabilia, trip pictures, and my ridiculously large collection of Haunted Mansion and EPCOT Center books and magazines.

@TMKBPodcast) Love Disney Parks, Disney History, and just plain DISNEY! Just a big Disney Nerd!
My name is Jared. Live in Colorado Springs, CO. And I'm a HUGE Disney fan! I am a fan of everything under the "Disney Umbrella". Love Disney Parks and Disney History... But my passion is Disney Park History!
It all began when I was a kid and all I would watch is The Disney Channel. (My mom is also a big Disney fan, so I grew up on some of the old school Disney stuff that were on reruns.)
My first "Disney Trip" was to Disneyland in 1989, when I was 8 years old. And my family would go back year after year (almost). My first trip to Walt Disney World was in 1997, aka: the year of the pink castle for WDW's 25th Anniversary. I've lost track on how may trips I've taken to Disneyland. And I've made 3 trips to WDW. For my wife's and my honeymoon we took our first Disney Cruise on the Disney Fantasy back in December 2015. It was such a magical trip for the both of us. We will be doing more Disney Cruise's for sure!

Hey y'all, my name is Kevin, and I currently live in Knoxville, Tennessee. I love all things Disney from the parks to the movies to TV Shows to music, if it has to do with Disney, I'm all about it! One of my favorite things to do in the parks is photograph! You can find all my Disney related pictures on the Instagram handle below!
My love for Disney came from my parents and their love for Disney. I grew up in Tampa, Florida which is about an hour and a half from Orlando, so we had annual passes to Walt Disney World. My earliest memories from the parks are seeing The Legend of the Lion King show at Magic Kingdom, seeing SpectroMagic, and going to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party as Woody. Growing up, I was 100% obsessed with Disney, to the point that as a younger child I wouldn't be able to fall asleep unless The Lion King was playing.
We then moved to Knoxville, TN around 12 years ago and that's when I really began to appreciate and become obsessed with Disney as an adult. I think being in Florida made it easier to incorporate Disney into a weekly schedule since it was so close, but moving really opened my eyes as to how lucky I was! Thankfully, we've started going back to Walt Disney World more often, enough so that my girlfriend and myself decided to buy annual passes this past summer!
If I had to do a quick list of Disney favorites it would go as follows:
Movie-The Lion King (but Princess and the Frog is really underrated)
Ride-Tower of Terror
TV Show-Buzz Lightyear of Star Command
Star Wars Movie-The Last Jedi
Star Wars Character-Kylo Ren
Marvel Movie-Captain America: Civil War
Marvel Character-Tony Stark
