There will be an episode this week, but it will be out tomorrow instead. I haven’t been feeling so great the past week and still 100%, but should be ready to go for tomorrow. Many many appologies.
Due to some family things that had come up over the past couple of days. There will not be an episode this week. However, there will be one next week. Sorry for the inconvenience.
So like I did for May, I have decided to put up a schedule for July (something that I was also going to do for June, but forgot). Here is what I’ll be talking about on each episode next month.
3- The Year so Far
10- Top 10 Disney Sports Movies
17- No show
24- Disney Store vs In Park Stores
Hey guys! Episode 20 was delayed due to some family things going on and what happened in Manchester, England, UK. I will be recording on Sunday and talk about a few things on what is going to happen for the rest of the summer and such. Also there will be a special video coming prob next week, but don’t quote me on that yet.
Normally I wouldn’t do an audio update… but since I’m in such a good mood, my mind was changed. See you all on Monday!
Normally I don’t do a post like this, however since with summer getting closer and closer, I thought talk about the plans for the next three months.
As I talked about the show, there WILL be an episode up this upcoming Monday. However there will not be one on May 8th due to me being away (there is just not going to be enough time for me to sit down and record a full episode of news, plus a trip report).
As for the rest of May:
15- Trip Report
22- Pixar (possibly with my sister)
29- Q & A
I was debating on weather to do a special episode on this or a post. I decided on the latter because honestly it has me annoyed and there are times where I do better in getting what I’m talking about in written form. So here we go.
Last night I was on Twitter when I saw a hashtag called Disflix (I was a little hesitant to link to the website, but decided to anyway). Since I was curious, I decided to click on it and was a bit appalled at what I saw. It’s calling itself the Disney Parks version of Netflix. For $10 a month, people would get from what I gather for right now is Disney World content. There would also be a Periscope for subscribers and classes on Disney planning. This annoys me greatly considering there are many great vlogggers out there who are doing this out of their own pocket and putting the videos up for free on YouTube. Heck even Disney itself has some free Vacation Planning dvds that you can send away for.
As you expect, the reaction has been quite negative.
Of course there are going to be people who are going to defend this new company, which is fine. However there have been several people who have pointed out that it’s actually against Disney Park rules to film for profit without permission in the parks.
Before you say, oh Rachel you have a sponsorship area? Isn’t that basically asking for money too? Yes… but I’m also not making any money off of my content that I’m putting out. Any sponsorship money that comes into the show goes directly back into the show. Thus giveaways can happen again and I can pay the hosting fees. Also I’m not doing this directly in the parks where as Disflix is. Not to mention their logo looks very similar to the Netflix logo when you look at it closely (although that may have to do with the type that they could have bought to make the logo… or their graphic designer that is). I have a poll up (it closes tonight) on weather or not you think Disflix will fail (although at this time of writing the website is still up, they did remove their Twitter account)
Will Disflix fail?

As for what you could do with the $10? Well just look at this tweet.

Stay tuned for more details about this coming as I will keep up on this story as it continues to develop.
Note: 4:59 pm EDT Disflix has released a statement saying they are not going to go forward with the project. I will be talking about this a bit on Monday’s show.
Hey guys this is your last chance to be on the show (for now), you have until Saturday to let me know on Twitter (at dreams of castles) if you would like to be on. Thanks in advance!
This week’s episode will include some legal stuff (aka lawsuits), quite a bit of WDW news, and much more (including the review of Hercules like I’ve been promising).
Also I have been thinking of moving the episodes to later on in the week for April… however that has yet to be determined weather or not that is going to happen or not. Right now I’m leaning towards keeping the show on Mondays, but if there is a change there will be an announcement in this week’s episode.
See you all on Monday!
Hard to believe we are already up to the double digits for the show! This week’s episode will be a recap of my Beauty & the Beast experience and more (which hasn’t been decided at this moment).
