I heard about this podcast from GGH and decided to give it a listen. These two give amazingly insightful looks and reviews and there banter between one another is too funny. I started listening to theme park podcasts that were mainly on the east coast and once I found this west coast duo it was a breath of fresh air. Being from California I can relate more to what they are talking about and I look forward to seeing or riding whatever topics they review in each particular episode. I’ve become a loyal listener to this podcast and Keep up the good work!

Great podcast

THE THEME PARK DUO PODCAST

SUBSCRIBE ON ITUNES

Sit down with Nikki and Gabriel as the hosts of The Theme Park Duo Podcast take you on a journey through their TOP 10 Disney Attraction Songs. When you think Disney, it is hard not to dream about the addictive rhythmic melodies of the songs that defined our childhood at theme parks. Regardless whether that is from Disneyland or Walt Disney World, it is impossible to think Disney without their incredible musical library. Personally, I can't think Disney without thinking of The Sherman Brothers amazing tunes like The Tiki Room, One Little Spark (EPCOT) and much more. Heck, it's hard to think of Amusement parks or theme parks without music. Will your favorite song make the list? Or will it just be an honorable mention. Tune in because this one is sure to be fun!

They are also joined by many special guests from many of your favorite Haunts and experiences from here in Southern California and out in Universal Orlando Resort!

This is a MEGA PACKED Halloween Episodes and we hope that this truly puts everyone in the spirit for this upcoming Halloween season!
