How the Show and Panel Came to Be

Mike began the podcast as a "Spring Break project" in 2008 after appearing on Episode 243 of the WDW Today Podcast. Originally conceived as a weekly Monday show for listeners to deliver trip reports, Mike quickly added a Friday panel-discussion show to the itinerary. The first such episode, Episode 5: Top Things to Do Outside the Parks, featured the debut of Rikki, a friend of Mike from St. Louis, and the permanent inclusion of Debbie, Mike's fellow poster on the DISBoards, who had originally delivered a trip report on Episode 3 - Touring Solo, Caribbean Beach, DVC. Things weren't completely settled, however. After having her travel agency, The Magic for Less, mentioned on Episode 14 - Polynesian, MLK weekend, Star Wars Weekends, Pam joined the panel beginning with Episode 19 - Hidden Gems of the Magic Kingdom. In 2013, the podcast expanded to three weekly episodes with the addition of Wednesday listener question shows, the first of which was Episode 520 - Listener Questions.
See Episode 411: Our Disney Backstory for more information.

In early 2016, as discussed on the February 2016 live show at 8:30, Debbie stepped away from the podcast for work-related reasons.
