Susan Veness, Author of Walt Disney World Hacks, Episode 29

The Disney Hack – Tricks and Tips for your Walt Disney World Trips! (An Unofficial Disney Podcast)

This week: An interview with travel writer and Author of Walt Disney Word Hack, Susan Veness.

Susan Veness, Author of Walt Disney World Hack

I had the pleasure of visiting with Susan earlier this month to discuss her amazing new book, Walt Disney World Hacks: 350+ Park Secrets for Making the Most of Your Walt Disney World Vacation (Hidden Magic). As the author of the Hidden Magic series, I had already known of Susan and the quality of her work, having purchased and read, The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World (1st Edition). When deciding if I would be bringing the podcast back to life I stumbled upon Susan’s new book launch and knew that I had to get some time with her to visit about her favorite Disney Hacks. The product of the conversation can be heard by listening to the latest episode of The Disney Hack Podcast.

I was reminded of why I had started doing the podcast – people need to know these tips, more than ever before. Not only that, seeing Susan’s book reminded me that I belong to a community of Disney fans unlike any other. The ones who spend countless hours pouring over the best strategies for helping their friends and family have the best trip to Disney (or any theme park, really). Although going to Walt Disney World CAN be a magical experience, Disney makes no guarantees. Empowering yourself with the latest, greatest information for maximizing your time, money and energy can be crucial to having a great vacation. Susan’s latest book is one every Disney planner is going to want to have in their arsenal.

Correction: In the introduction to the interview with Susan Veness, I inadvertently referred to Susan’s earlier book as Hidden *Secrets* of Walt Disney World. I meant to say Hidden Magic, which if you read it will illustrate that it is full of delightful magic and wonderful secrets!

Episode 18 – A Packed Walt Disney World Trip Report

The Disney Hack – Tricks and Tips for your Walt Disney World Trips! (An Unofficial Disney Podcast)

This week: A very packed trip report with Hack Master Mark Lucas (AKA:!

I met mark on Instagram when we followed each other’s accounts. He was kind enough to send me a PM on Instagram letting me know how much he enjoyed the show. I replied and we begin a conversation that ended with us recording episode 14 (Find it here: Episode 14), about dining hacks on how to save money by taking advantage of the appetizers and dessert menu while eating your way around Walt Disney World.

Mark is a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to Walt Disney World. This time we dive into his recent trip report to the World (his 6th in under a year!) and how his family hacks their way to a better experience each time. Mark generously give his best ideas on how to navigate Walt Disney World from the flight down, to the flight home. I really hope you enjoy our conversation!
