    Should be number one, honestly... it's easily the best out of the bunch.

    Is Tim Tracker really that good? I've heard a lot about him. Big Fat Panda isn't too bad, I like when he was on the show and he's good on WDW Radio. I've seen Pete and Jim Korkis on his show. Seems like a likable enough guy.

    I love/watch Tim and Jenn because they seem so genuine, work REALLY hard (vlogs EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!!), love their pets, and also do stuff not just in the parks. Also watch BFP 'cause he also seems like a genuine, and fun guy.

    I watch all these vlogs and agree with the author's reasons for liking them (I'd have made DIS #1). However, unless I'm mistaken, the blogger just published THEIR top 7 list right? This wasn't some national vlog award or popularity poll as voted upon by the Disney fan community...it'd be like if I published an article on MY top 7 best Disney vloggers (which would mirror this list pretty much with perhaps the inclusion of Ears2You).

    There are a few that I've not checked out before so I will have to take a look. I think it's really hard to rank them because I watch each of them for different reasons. To be honest, I think the official Disney site does the worst job of promoting their business in a way that I want to see it. It's a good thing that we have other great resources to get our Disney fix! Great job DIS team!

    Our family gets so much enjoyment from The DIS shows...the new DIS Dining Show is super helpful and informative. Pete's reviews are great-it is nice to get honest and be able to avoid the mediocre restaurants. Charles always gives an informative review as well. Shawn and Steve add a great combo of opinions and tastes.

    1) Correct- not voted upon...

    2) It’s not quite the same as if you or I published a list of our favorite vloggers- WhatCulture is a globally known entertainment website, and their YouTube channel has something in the region of 1.3 million subscribers. Whilst us praising the efforts of these vloggers is a nice touch, a digital media powerhouse such as WC highlighting them is a very big deal.

    3) Just thought number three was worth highlighting too .

    @MarkE83
    Just saw your other post, on not promoting others here.....sure hope I haven't (TOTALLY unintended!!!) violated the rules, or ticked anybody off by starting this thread. I'd be very embarrassed. :(:o Was just very excited to share what I thought was fantastic news, and never thought about it. :(

    I highly doubt you’ve even bent the rules. A lot of these vloggers have even been on each other’s shows; and I think we all know that the dearly missed ex team members that occupy position 3 still speak to a lot of the current team...

    My other post only mentioned not promoting other things because I didn’t want to flat out name the person I was talking about; as many people think that being “drunk at Disney” (oops!) isn’t something to encourage. I know and fully understand why they don’t allow/encourage discussing other travel agencies here; but I think discussing podcasts is fine.

    Is it verboten to acknowledge that Oliver and JL have a YT channel?


    I think a disney-related vlog channel is only as good as the personalities that run it.
    I like tim+jenn just fine. I also like Justin Scarred, though some people don't care for his shtick of being overly excited (to that, I'd suggest his channel of more produced videos, Randomland, that is more topic based.)

    But there really is an over saturation of theme-park enthusiasts right now, which isn't a bad thing.

    But the Dis is the best tbh. They got yer vlogs, your pro-shot stuff, POV ride-thrus, weekly produced shows.
    One stop shop :)

    I completely agree. It seems like there's millions of them now, and they're all basically the same. The DIS and WDW Radio are the two at the very top and there's a couple that manage to have a unique twist, like Radio Harambe with its focus on Animal Kingdom, and The Disney Dish with Jim Hill that has an entertaining expert in Disney parks history... but other than that it's basically just the same discussion with different people repeated 1000 times.

    Oh! And another great channel is "Defunctland". It's a youtube series and podcast that covers extinct theme park attractions, and it's really well done.
    (the podcasts are limited to anytime the guy does interview/discussion stuff tho)

    Not verboten; but I recall a thread around the time Oliver left where there was endless speculation as to why he had gone and what he was doing next; where the moderators (I think) requested that everyone stop speculating/jumping to conclusions etc, because at the time (and still) it wasn’t really any of our business. I’m sure mentioning them in passing is fine now though :)

    His new non-mustached face is freaking me out...
    Other than that, we enjoy their videos. Genuine is absolutely the best way to put it, he's not doing a character or an affected voice he's just giving his best representation of himself. Much like our beloved DIS Unplugged...
