To watch the event, which serves as a fundraiser for Gilana's Fund, visit: bpn.fm/ettb-live at the scheduled time.

"To know me is to know I love Disneyland," remarks Alpert. "Although from a young age I've always been focused on becoming a director and have made that my career in New York City, I grew up going to the park with my family, and in 2005 worked as an Attractions Cast Member on the Autopia. This podcast intersects two of my passions, and it's been a joy to chat with my Broadway pals who are fellow Disney Parks enthusiasts. It's my hope that the podcast brings joy and happiness to the listeners."

Alex Parrish composed original music for the podcast, and original artwork is by Paul Culos. Tyler Dobies and Eric Shorey provide additional voiceovers.

The Podcast has teamed with GIlana's Fund, and will donate part of the profits from the Patreon page to the organization. Gilana's Fund, created after Alpert's sister Gilana passed away in 2007, has raised over $100,000 and supports organizations that promote justice, inclusion, equality, and acceptance. Learn more at www.gilanasfund.org.

"I'm taking my cue from Walt Disney who premiered his television show "Walt Disney's Disneyland" on Wednesday evenings in 1954, so each new episode will drop on Wednesdays. The "Rope Drop Overture" trailer, which explains the 'why' behind the podcast, as well episodes with Susan Egan, Andrew Barth Feldman, Eden Espinosa, and Lesli Margherita are all currently available."
