Best Disney Podcasts

UPDATE: I revisited my Best Disney Podcast listing. You can find the new results, here.

On a recent episode of Unprofessional, Amy Jane Gruber mentioned that she listens to a Disney-trip planning podcast. Though she later told me the specific podcast she listens to, I decided I wanted to see what other options there were in Disney podcasting space1. After listening to a bunch of Disney podcasts, here are the results:

Best Overall Disney Podcast

  • WDW Radio – Hosted by Lou Mongello, WDW Radio provides a well-produced, well-structured, combination of Disney-related history, news, and information. It quickly became a “can’t miss” podcast for me and I look forward to every episode that comes out.

Most Entertaining Disney Podcast

  • DisAfterDark – A couple of british guys, in a pub, drinking, and talking about all things Disney. It’s entertaining, informative, and hilarious. Also, it gets bonus points since it’s a show that my fiancé likes listening to with me.

Other Disney Podcasts I Sometimes Listen To2

  • WDW Today – A panel format podcast that includes quick hits on certain topics and user mail episodes. I listen to those episodes that are on topics I am interested in 3, but I usually skip the user mail episodes.4

  • Dis Unplugged – Another panel format podcast that seems to cover a whole variety of Disney-related topics. I have found the amount of topics they cover can be overwhelming and I choose to just listen to select episodes and/or episode segments.

  1. Bias Alert: I am a frequent visitor to Walt Disney World in Florida, but I have never been to Disneyland in California. Consequently, I prefer podcasts that are mostly Disney World focused. 

  2. For these podcasts, I subscribe to their respective feeds and then determine, episode by episode, whether I am to listen or not. 

  3. Such as a recent episode on Disney Spring

  4. Again, this is probably my personal bias against user question and answer shows.
