Welcome to episode 32 of Castle Cast! In this special edition episode we talk about all the latest news surrounding the Disney community. Most importantly, we take the time to affirm that our platform, our podcast and our voices will be used to join hand in hand with our brothers and sisters fighting for their rights and social change. We believe that Black Lives Matter and fully support those on the front lines pushing for social change, justice and equality. We want to do better and will be better in raising the voices of BIPOC individuals within the Disney content creating community. We are here for you and support you.

Additionally, we talk all about the biggest news: Disneyland has submitted plans and proposals for re-opening the parks in California! We talk all about what we know, what we don’t know YET and what our plans are for making the decision to visit the park next.
