Epic job on the show notes, Maya! Thank you!!!

Epic show! Thanks for having me on. It was great to be on and profess my extreme love for the Kim Possible adventure. Can’t wait to get back and do more world-saving.

I LOVED IT!!!

Now, I am hooked on going to disney, It may take me a year or so to save the money, but I am planning on going!!!

After listening to this episode, I found this at a local goodwill for 99 cents.

*giggle* I’m sure my brother is glad to see that he actually exists. Too bad that won’t stop Figment from having some fun with him the next time we visit. :)

Thanks for sharing this.

Damn that Figment. He better hold still and stay visible, or I’m gonna get mad.

Awesome show guys! One thing I would add as an out of the parks place to visit is Celebration, Florida. It’s a town built by Disney in the mid-late 90s just outside Disney property. It’s a great Leave it to Beaver style community that my wife and I really enjoyed hanging out in and walking around the neighborhoods, ponds and main street. It’s anither good free Disney-ish thing to do.

That’s an excellent tip James and I agree, Celebration sounds like a nifty off-site excursion if you have arrived at Disney with a car or willing to pony up for a taxi. Thanks for commenting!
