Welcome to another Minisode edition of Castle Cast, Episode 23.5 “Minisode: Bella Notte”! In this episode we conclude our main trip report and discussion about our most recent and first ever visit to Walt Disney World! We cover all the resorts we were able to visit and stay at throughout our vacation and the dining reservations we experienced as well! We talk about the ins and outs of our booking experiences and then our reviews of each resort and dining experience! Also since this is our official last episode of 2019, we take a moment to look back on our year in the world of Disney and then a brief look forward to some exciting things coming up in 2020 for our podcast and for Disney fans!

Sincerely thank you to everyone who has listened and supported our little podcast in our first year of broadcasting! We have had so much fun and can’t wait to see what 2020 brings!
