Hey everyone! Thank you so much for continuing to support Drinking Around Disney! We just wanted to let you know about a few exciting updates to our podcast and our brand.
Starting with this week’s episode, a new episode will be released every two weeks. The first episode will be a news episode, where we recap all the news for the month. We will still be doing a drink for this episode. The second episode will be a themed episode, so keep all your wonderful theme ideas and topics coming! The main reason for this change is time. We know your time is valuable and a 90 minute podcast might not fit in to your schedule. Having two separate episodes will also allow us discuss the news items, instead of just reading it to you and rushing through to the theme. It’ll also let us have more in-depth theme episodes too! We will continue with this schedule for at least six months. After that, we will see how everyone feels about it, so please let us know!!
2020 is going to be an exciting time for the Drinking Around Disney brand. Starting with this week’s episode, we will be posting content on YouTube and Instagram, as well as continue using this site and our Facebook. On YouTube, we will post videos (obviously) on how to make our drinks, our time in the parks, some behind the scenes videos, and some surprises as well! Our goal is to also start producing live YouTube segments by the end of the year.
One of our main goals is to continue to grow our social media following. For this, we need your help! Please tell anyone who you know loves Disney about us. We LOVE being interactive with our community and would love to get fun conversations and debates on our Facebook page. We will be holding a contest for our fans once we hit the following totals: 100, 250, 500, and 1,000. The more people we get, the cooler the prizes will be (Drinking Around Disney Merch, anyone??) so start inviting!
Finally, we would like to thank each and every one of you who listen to us, like our posts, and email and message us ideas for themes. We are so excited to be chasing this dream of ours and we are happy that you are sharing this journey with us! In the past week alone, we have gained almost 100 listeners. That may not seem like much, but for a small podcast with only 3 (now 4) episodes, that’s a pretty good improvement! Please keep rating us and recommending us on your podcast platform of choice. The more reviews we get, the better!
In the words of Walt, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” We look forward to opening new doors and finding new paths in 2020!
