Episode 41: “Some Celebration, Huh?” – June 2021

For this month’s show Ben is in charge, as we take a trip back down memory lane as we reminisce and celebrate our 2nd anniversary of The GB Mickey Waffle.

We share the details on Disney’s latest offer for UK guests and whether it has influenced any of our plans and we hear some lovely messages from our friends and supporters of the show.

Those 3 things will be:

Ben also has his turn on presenting his “Come Disney With Me” which is a new segment which debuted in last month’s show. Make sure you go back and check that one out.

It’s a Wafflers’ take on the classic TV shows similar to Come Dine with Me, where every month, one member of the GBMW team will take the opportunity to present 3 things to their teammates and ask for their ratings and views!

A Ride or attraction 
A restaurant of eatery 
A show, parade or additional experience.

We recognise that the dining plan isn’t currently an option,but looking forward to planning and booking into 2022 and beyond, we thought it was definitely something worth waffling about to help plan your next trip to WDW.The food talk will most certainly make you hungry and remind you of those restaurants you really love.

Episode 33: Bar Wars: The Rise of Skyliner – February 2021

Summary

For this months ‘Waffle’, Ben is in charge and we take to the skies in one of Disney’s finest transportation options. Disney’s Skyliner.

Unfortunately the Millennium Falcon was being repaired after we managed to crash it during Smugglers Run. Once we had recovered by riding Rise of The Resistance it was time to take on a challenge set by one of our listeners.

We attempt a bar crawl from Hollywood Studios to Epcot, stopping at all Skyliner Resorts for 1 food item and 1 drink. Some very interesting choices were made and some were easier to pronounce than others.

Once we had recovered from our trip we delved into the options available and what to consider when staying offsite. From the delights of the expansive hotels on International Drive to being close to Disney Springs by staying in Lake Buena Vista.

If you have found us for the first time, or are a regular listener to The Great British Mickey Waffle, you can get in touch with us by email, themickeywaffle@gmail.com or you can get in touch with us via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter @GBMickeyWaffle.
