NYC_PicsIn today’s episode I discuss my recent trip to New York city and talk about my experiences at Coney Island and the Bronx Zoo. I compare the two experiences to Disney and compare the similarities. For instance, Disney’s boardwalk is inspired by Coney Island and I believe that Animal Kingdom also took some inspiration from the Bronx Zoo as well. If you find yourself in the New York area I highly recommend the Bronx Zoo!

This is our first episode that is primarily devoted to something non-Disney related. So…we spend the first 7 minutes talking about Disney. Specifically, the new Disney-Pixar film Coco which I saw during it’s opening weekend. I don’t give away any major spoilers but just go see it, you won’t regret it. Anyway…the point of this episode is to talk about the recent trip that my family took to Bryson City, North Carolina to experience the Polar express train. I give my review of the experience and let you know if I recommend it. On this same trip I also spent a day at the Biltmore in Ashville, North Carolina. I give a brief review of that experience and let you know if I would recommend it for parents with young children.
