Cody has been a life long "Dis-nerd". Growing up, he almost got a chance to live in Disney World when he got lost in Magic Kingdom on his first trip when he was six. After a fifteen year hiatus, Cody went back to Disney World in 2012 for a class for college and immediately became hooked on the magic. Today, he has been to Disney World NINE times, and Disneyland twice, with another trip planned for Disney World this October (his honeymoon!!). Unlike Ross, Cody Drinks Around The World the RIGHT way, none of this "Beer counts at every stop" nonsense. Cody and his fiancé are frequent Run Disney participants and Cody has completed a "Coast to Coast Challenge", which means he ran a half marathon at both US Parks in the same Calendar Year (Disney got a lot of his money in 2017).
Favorite Park: Epcot
Favorite Ride: Indiana Jones Adventure
Favorite Restaurant: Can ALL of them be an answer? No? Then Skipper's Canteen.
Ross got bit by the Disney Parks bug when he was 11. He doesn't remember much from that trip (maybe he started researching for this podcast a little too early in life) (DISCLAIMER: DRINKING AROUND DISNEY DOES NOT CONDONE UNDERAGE DRINKING, NO MATTER HOW MAGICAL THE DRINKS ARE) but he remembered enough to want to go back. He's been back SIX times since 2015, with his eighth trip quickly approaching. He frequently visits during the Food and Wine Festival so he can Snack Around the World as well as Drink Around the World, even though he thinks it is ok to just drink beer at each country.
Favorite Park: Epcot
Favorite Ride: Flight of Passage, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin (Ross is a Veteran of the Space Rangers and is a 4-TIME Galactic Hero)
Favorite Restaurant: Raglan Road
Growing up in Wisconsin, Cortney dreamed (yearned?) of Florida sunshine. Her first trip to Disney was to Disney World with her family to celebrate her high school graduation in 2009. Since then, she has been to Disney World three times AND Disneyland three times! Granted some of those times were to run races, but it still counts!

Favorite Ride: Soarin'; Toy Story Midway Mania
Favorite Restaurant: Tony's Town Square
