Hey there! And welcome to Journey to the Magic... The Official Walt Disney Travel Company Podcast, Giovanna Fletcher’s new, star-studded podcast about all the things that make Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disney Cruise Line oh so magical.


Tune in to our first season and each week you’ll hear from celebrity guests as they share their most magical memories, funny stories and family traditions from their Disney holidays. Giovanna will then ask them what their Perfect Disney Day would be if they could go anywhere and do absolutely anything Disney – we’re talking breakfasts on a private Caribbean island, an afternoon exploring a galaxy far, far away and an evening enjoying a magnifique romantic meal at a restaurant run by a rat. No two days are ever the same, that’s for sure. If, like Giovanna, you’ve been a diehard Disney fan since, well, forever, or have kids (and a partner) who go mad for the magic, then this is well worth your Mickey ears. You’ll certainly smile, learn a tip or two and get some great ideas for you next Disney adventure.

You’ll struggle to meet a bigger Disney fan than Giovanna’s husband, musician, singer, songwriter, composer, author and Disney pin collector Tom Fletcher. He first visited Walt Disney World Resort in Florida when he was five and has been back many, many times since – a lot of them with Giovanna! So he has loads of magical stories and tips to share, including how he finally managed to earn a Galactic Hero sticker on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
You may know Emma as the face of The Voice, but to Giovanna, she’s her best friend and Disney Parks travel buddy. Their families have shared many magical moments exploring the Parks together. And they can’t wait to go back, all squeeze into a photo in front of Cinderella Castle (thank you, Memory Maker) and eat funnel cake for lunch every single day!    Emma’s a bit of a thrill-seeker who likes to take the day as it comes. Which isn’t for everyone, including Giovanna! So if you love to plan your day ahead, stay tuned as Disney expert Elkie takes you through her top tips at the end.  See for privacy and opt-out information.
A true triple threat, musician, actor and dancer Aston Merrygold got his first taste of stardom as a seven-year-old Guest at, yes, you guessed it, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Since that unforgettable day on stage during Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, Aston has been back many times – especially at Halloween and to eat as many turkey legs as possible.  Yet despite his many visits, Aston hasn’t had the chance to take his two little boys to any of the Disney® Parks. So to help make sure their first Disney adventure goes as smoothly as one of Aston’s dance moves, resident Disney expert Elkie has some top tips for trips with young children.    See for privacy and opt-out information.
TV legend Davina McCall didn’t watch her first Disney film until she was 35. Now she has a Disney-themed Christmas tree every year and a lanyard filled with Disney pins to remind her of her many Walt Disney World Resort in Florida adventures. In this episode, Davina touches on how a Disney holiday can mean so much to so many people, and reveals which Star Wars™ Character gave her the best hug ever. While on holiday, Davina always makes time for a 5k run in the morning. So with this in mind, resident Disney expert Elkie shows us how easy it is to keep fit and eat healthily at Walt Disney World.   See for privacy and opt-out information.
Lovable TV presenter Alison Hammond is the only one of our podcast guests to have visited Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line. She therefore has a whole host of magical memories to share, from being an honorary princess at Disneyland Paris, to sailing in the Med and the Caribbean aboard Disney Cruise Line and squeezing almost every last drop of orange juice out of Walt Disney World Resort in Florida!    Alison definitely knows her magic more than most, but our very own Disney expert, Elkie, thinks she might still like to learn about the amazing new features coming to the My Disney Experience App. Stay tuned until the end to find out more…   See for privacy and opt-out information.
