Annie and Danny's FastPass Podcast

This week Annie and Dan hold their end-of-the-year podcast where they wing it through no substantial news items, but talk about their respective holidays and the things that stood out for them most about this year at Disney. 

Next they touch on some "injury/mishap themed" Disney Dummies where poop is discussed a bit too much probably.

After that they discuss Frozen some more, Dan's experience watching Saving Mr. Banks, and then his visit to the Walt Disney Family Museum.
