  • Disney Podcast Network - Westfest - Press Release

    Howdy MiceChatters,

    This event for Disney Podcast fans sounds like a blast. I'm planning on attending if possible and look forward to having other MiceChatters join me.

    Here is the release from fellow MiceChatter, Oakfan:

    The Disney Podcast Network would like to WELCOME you to the DPN's Westfest 2008!

    Disneyland is the place to be May 3 & 4, 2008!

    Yes, it's that time of year. The time when Disney Podcast fans from all over the globe make their plans to attend one of the fastest growing and most popular Disney Online Community events. The DPN's Westfest is shaping up to be THE event you will not want to miss. Join all of your favorite Disney Podcast Network Podcasters at our annual gathering of Family, Friends and Fans for a weekend of FUN!

    What is the DPN's Westfest?

    The DPN's Westfest is a gathering of Podcasters and Forum Members from the Disney Podcast Network's online community. Westfest is free to everyone who wishes to attend (Park admission is required and is not included). Anyone with a love of Disney from near or far is invited to join the DPN at the "Original Anaheim Kingdom" in Southern California. This is a perfect opportunity to visit with good friends, put faces to names, make new friends, have some laughs and share our love for what Walt Disney created over 50 years ago. The DPN's Westfest is the perfect way to expand your Disney experience!

    What to expect:

    Westfest is YOUR weekend. Enjoy your visit to the Disneyland Resort the way YOU want. Take some time to explore the parks and along the way the DPN Podcasters will be holding events in which you are invited to participate. Attend as many or as few of the events as you wish. The events can be as simple as sharing a ride on one of the attractions or more involved like taking a walking tour and getting the inside scoop of some of the more intimate details of the parks given by a former Cast Member turned Podcaster. The signature event is the Banquet Dinner held on Saturday night (separate admission is required). This is one Gala Event you won't want to miss! The events are scattered throughout the weekend to give a nice balance of activities and times to relax and enjoy what the Disneyland Resort has to offer. At The DPN's Westfest there is something for everyone. Just as Walt wanted a place that parents and children could experience together, we want the DPN's Westfest to be an event that can be shared and enjoyed with all people. The DPN's Westfest is an event meant to be shared among families and between friends for a weekend that you'll be talking about for years to come.

    DPN's Westfest Banquet, "An Evening With Bob Jackson":

    The DPN's Westfest Banquet Dinner has quickly become a cornerstone of the entire weekend as our signature event. All of the DPN Podcasters attending Westfest will be in one place at one time. This is your chance to sit down with friends both old and new and enjoy food, drink, conversation and some awesome entertainment.

    We are pleased to announce that the 2008 DPN's Westfest Banquet Dinner's theme will be "An Evening With Bob Jackson". Bob has been bringing laughter and music to audiences at Walt Disney World for more than ten years. Several of the DPN Podcaster visited Bob at one of his shows during previous Mousefest events. You may have heard or scene him on some of the podcasts. Bob combines his great boogie-woogie piano skills with comedy and sing-a-long to create a unique audience interactive experience. This will be THE event you won't want to miss!!! To find out more about Bob Jackson, visit his website at and visit him at the River Roost Lounge at Port Orleans Riverside when you go to Walt Disney World.

    There will be dinner served, a cash bar, and special treats followed by Bob Jackson. Tickets need to be purchased in advance! The dinner menu and complete details of how you can purchase your Tickets are available at

    Thank You Dusty!

    If you are not familiar with the DPN's Westfest you should take a minute and visit the official website. We have a whole weekend of fun planned for this year and YOU are invited. This is your chance to experience the Disneyland resort in a whole new way. All of the events are free (accept the Signature Banquet Dinner, "An Evening with Yehaa Bob Jackson") and you can attend as many or as few as you like. It's all about hanging out with Disney fans and having fun. It's also a prefect way to meet your favorite Disney Podcasters face to face.

    Our schedule of events is still growing but you can check out the preliminary schedule HERE.

    If you have any questions at all, please let me know. I'd be happy to answer what I can.

      I want to let everyone know that if you are thinking about attending the DPN Westfest Banquet Dinner "An Evening With Yehaa Bob Jackson" the discounted tickets are about to go up to full price. You have from now until March 15 to purchase your tickets at the greatly reduced price. After that, they go up by $10 per ticket.

      You won't have this opportunity in Southern California again so please treat yourself to a wonderful night of meeting Disney enthusiasts like yourself, good food and awesome entertainment. I hope to see you there.
