Show Notes

We've got one of our favorite guests on this week's bonus show, the incomparable Len Testa! Len is the founder of Touring Plans, the best way to optimize your day at a Disney theme park to reduce wait time and enjoy more rides. He's also the co-author of the Unofficial Guides, including the guides for Disney World and Disney Cruise Line (which is also co-authored by one of our favorite guests, Erin Foster). Len is also the co-host of the Disney Dish Podcast with Jim Hill. Touring Plans Travel is also a former show sponsor of the DCL Duo. Len recently sailed aboard the Disney Wish for the Disney Dish Podcast cruise, and we couldn't wait to get his thoughts. Len's analytical mind is always churning and we find that his approach to these discussions is always fun and unique. He always spots things we'd miss because he has a different and unique point of view. Love having him on and can't wait to have him back!
