In Episode 004 we are introducing a new episode format. Most shows are DVC member interviews. However, today’s show is the first of a regularly recurring segment called “meet the magic maker.” We talk with former Disney cast members and industry insiders who can share inside knowledge, information, and experiences directly related to our Disney vacations. In these interviews, I seek out people who in some way left their fingerprints in the parks and resorts.
