Episode 10: Crêpe Expectations – February 2020

Summary

For this episode, we are all at the local gym, trying to get in shape for our next trip to Disney. We discuss a couple of topics which have caused some concern amongst us Wafflers. It’s also that time of year when we are all trying to eat that little bit healthier so we take a look at whether you can or should eat healthy at Walt Disney World. With Valentine’s Day not too far away and budgets being stretched by our many trips to the Mouse, we try and spend less than $50 for a romantic evening at Disney. It’s Lloyds turn for Carousel of Questions and of course, we have the Mickey Mentions.

If you would like to have a Mickey Mention on a future show then email the Wafflers at themickeywaffle@gmail.com – It can be for anything that you’re celebrating such as Birthday, Anniversary or that special Holiday.
