Recently I had the opportunity to be a part of something new in the Disney community with the creation of the Dizzie Awards. The Awards are a way for the Disney community to recognize the effort of the podcasters who use their time to share their passion for Disney with their listeners . And while it is true that there are podcast awards already in existence, the creators felt that “the Disney Podcast community is large enough to warrant some awards of our own.”
“The whole idea was just based on a couple of fans wanting to do something fun,” stated award co-creator Brian Perkins. He went on to say that the initial idea for a Disney specific award came from co-founder James, who goes by the name Disney Podcast Lover on twitter. James shared his thoughts on the Award creation; “I wanted to acknowledge those who take their spare time to share their passion for all things Disney.” James also had the additional goal of using the award to spread the word about the Disney podcasting community. “Not everyone is aware of podcasts, believe it or not, and Disney fans are very passionate. These podcasters share their love and opinions informing others about things they didn’t know about the world of Disney.” And with that goal in mind the Dizzie Awards were born.

Today marks the official relaunch of the DisneyKate.com with the addition of the Weekly Wings, a brand–new online Disney news source!
Things are constantly changing at Walt Disney World. As Walt himself said: times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly focused on the future. Every time a change is announced the rumor mills start to fly; what else is changing? When will it close? The Weekly Wings aims to bring you up to date reports on what is happening in the Wide World of Disney.
However this paper isn’t just about what Disney announces. It’s also about the Disney Community. It’s about the Bloggers and the Podcasters who work tirelessly to keep us all entertained while they share all things Disney. It’s about the fans reactions to changes that are happening in the parks, both good and bad. It’s about all of us as a larger Disney Community and Culture.
So check back every week as I bring you news, reactions and stories about the Mouse and the people who make the magic possible: you.
