Welcome to Capture The Magic! If you’re here it’s probably because you’re wondering who the heck we are and what we’re all about. Capture the Magic Podcast is hosted by Jared and Jamie Lee. We started our show because we love going to Disney World as much as we can and figured when we can’t be at Disney, we can at least talk about Disney.
We are always staying up on the latest news, rumors, talking about things we love, things we would change and things we would love to see at Disney. The podcast has also proved another great way for us to stay in the Disney spirit, connect with others in the Disney community and hopefully along the way others will find our conversations entertaining, informative and of course fun.
I’ve personally have been to Disney World and Disneyland more times than I can count as I’ve been going basically ever since I could walk. My mom grew up going to Disneyland as a child as she lived in California and she passed her love of Disney onto me and my sister. As a family, all we wanted to do was go to Disney again and again and were always in some degree of planning our next Disney trip.
I originally hid my love of Disney from Jared as I wasn’t sure what he would think about my passion for Disney, but luckily he is a geek about comic books and other things so he understood where I was coming from (whew!). He now loves going as much as I do and we are always talking about our next trip.
Now that I’m married and a mother I’m glad that I have someone I can share my love of Disney with and hopefully will pass that love on to my kids as well.
Jared is a bit of a late bloomer when it comes to Disney as he had been once when he was 14 years old & went a few more times in his early 20’s as his Dad lived in the Orlando area but he didn’t fall in love with it until we went together for the first time in 2013.
Jared had never stayed on property & the trips before weren’t planned out to maximize all the fun the parks truly have to offer. Now he not only loves going to Disney but has become a Fan Boy about going to Disney and learning more about the history of Disney and the latest news and rumors about it.
How The Podcast Started
The Capture the Magic Podcast actually started with Capture the Magic Apparel in January 2017. We created the website to provide fellow Disney fans and vacationers with the best information we could about planning their next trip along with creating original Disney inspired t-shirts.
We were listening to lots of the best Disney podcasts out there but found a desire to start our own and this was the next step we took in spreading our Disney fandom. I, Jamie, have always had Disney as a part of my life since I was a young child, so talking about all things involving Disney was something I was excited for, but just didn’t know how to execute. Enter my husband, Jared.
Being a bit of a technology and marketing guru, Jared had the skills and background to set up and create in our opinion, one of the best Disney podcasts out there. Even though he only became a Disney fan a few years ago, he is always up to date on the latest happenings in the parks, has become a Disney history buff, is a self proclaimed comic book geek and is always eager to talk about his knowledge about the parks and share his opinions of the business and technical side of Disney. We went on a crash course when it comes to Disney podcasts and put out our first podcast episode in late June of 2017.
