Castle to Castle Goes Christmas: Where in the Park? Wandering Edition
It's that time again. But wait...it WAS that time last week... Merry Christmas, anyway - apologies for lateness, but you can consider this a Castle to Castle Goes Christmas AND New Year! This year's edition comes in the form of that old Disney podcasting chestnut, the Where in the Park? game. For the uninitiated, this involves a show of pretty much nothing but in-park audio, with no explanation as to what the next attraction will be - YOU get to guess! Or be surprised, your call...there are unfortunately no prizes in this Where in the Park? game... We hope you enjoy wandering through Disney's Hollywood Studios with Mike, and that you find this episode a nice, relaxing way out of the holiday season. If you did, let us know, by Liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, subscribing to us on iTunes, and emailing us, at firstname.lastname@example.org - and, as always, enjoy! P.S. Happy 2015!
