I cringed when you said you were recording in the parks. Usually I think it is hard to hear the audio over all of the background noise, but however you did it worked perfectly. Thank you! Great trip report.

Hi Shannon! I read recently that airline check in at the resort can be difficult and sometimes impossible with a hyphenated surname. Can you confirm this? Travelling internationally back to Australia...

Loved the in-park updates! Really enjoyed hearing the magical sounds! Especially when you entered The Seas building at Epcot and we heard the seagulls “More! More! More!” :)

Hi Shannon! Just a quick question, will the 8am opening at Hollywood studios come the end of this month be for on-site guests only and act like a permanent EMH or will it be for off site guests too? I couldn't see anything about it on the disney site. Many thanks, I find your podcasts so useful.

Do you know if the Bippidi Boppidi Boutique has the Minnie Halloween dress? (Specifically the MK location.)
