Ticket prices are on the rise again. Also, rumors of another beloved Walt Disney World attraction possibly being replaced by a Toy Story Marionette Show?

In this episode, we revisit our Disney Bucket List items that we shared way back on our 5th episode (originally released June 12th, 2016) to see what we've crossed off our lists, what still remains, and if there are any new additions we've added in the past few years.

Episode 83.5: Bonus Episode (feat. Skipper Kyle of Tales From the Jungle Crews)

June 16, 2019

We feel bad that we shorted you a podcast last time around. So, we are hooking you up with a very special bonus episode this week! Matt and Katherine got to sit down and talk to our dear friend Skipper Kyle (who has his very own, very-good podcast, Tales From the Jungle Crews). We were eager to talk to Kyle because he has gotten to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disneyland Park multiple times at this point, and we needed to get some fresh impressions of everything there was to see and do.

We had a ton of fun with this interview, and we hope you enjoy listening. Cheers, and Kungaloosh!
