Jay has been enjoying hosting Shua at his house for a visit. And they went on an epic MCU Locations road trip. Make sure to check it out on Superhero Suite. In preparation for his trip to Disney World, Shua has been reading some good ol’ fashioned Disney comics. Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck go wild as they try to avoid the murderous Pete who literally tries to kill them. Wow!
On July 17, 1955 Walt Disney uttered those iconic words, “To all who come to this happy place, welcome!” And since then, more than 800 million people have visited. Jay grew up in California and had a lot of great times in the park. Shua has been visiting for 32 years and loves it every time. The guys reminisce about great times they have had and the stories that go along with them. Plus, they look back at the history of the park and what Walt was thinking.
Disneyland may not be for everyone, and it certainly isn’t accessible to everyone, so they also talk about how people can enjoy experiences like they have had in other places too.
If you’re planning a trip to Disneyland, you’ll for sure want to budget a ton of money for some of the great food they have there. Jay and Shua pick some of their favorites from the park.
