DIZNEY COAST TO COAST - The Ultimate Unofficial Disney Fan Podcast

“Dizney Coast to Coast” is an entertaining and informative podcast about anything and everything related to The Walt Disney Company. Consider this your warning; listeners of DCTC have been known to temporarily leave their reality while they dream of their next (or first) Disney vacation. DCTC is hosted by Jeff DePaoli, an avid Disney fan who spends far too much time in the parks and being consumed by Disney products. He suffers from O.C.D. (Obsessive Compulsive Disney), but has learned to use this disorder for your benefit by spreading his knowledge through the podcast. Come along for the ride and listen to passionate conversations celebrating (and sometimes questioning) Disney theme parks, movies, theatricals and so much more. You'll also hear exclusive and unique interviews with Disney Legends, Academy Award winners, Golden Globe winners and more talented folks from various Disney projects on the ultimate, unofficial Disney fan podcast. “Dizney Coast to Coast” is a fan podcast and is not affiliated with The Walt Disney Company.
