I never understood the YouTube watching addiction until I discovered theme park vlogs on YouTube! I didn’t even know that vlogging was a THING! Now I’m hooked and I’m going to share with you my FAVORITE theme park YouTube channels to watch! Of course they are all Disney/Universal related!
There are A LOT of theme park YouTube channels, but THESE are my FAVORITES!
My son is a YouTube addict. He loves watching videos on YouTube and I never understood the fascination. He wants to be a YouTuber when he grows up which is how we decided he would be our Theme Park Junior Advisor!
However, a couple years ago before going on our trip to Universal Orlando I tried looking up videos about it on YouTube so I was more familiar with the parks (we had never been before). I discovered a vlogger who did a LOT of Universal videos and I instantly got hooked on watching them all. Now my son rolls his eyes at ME when I say that I need to catch up on my YouTube videos!
Official Theme Park YouTube Channels
Once in a while I like to check the videos from the official channels for specific parks. Disney Parks & Universal Orlando Resort both have YouTube channels with informative videos. The runDisney channel is also a fun one to watch when I’m trying to get motivated to maybe someday run in a runDisney race! However, the unofficial channels that I watch are even better!
A few of my favorite vloggers (not an exhaustive list)…
The Tim Tracker
My very first YouTube theme park vlog experience was watching TheTimTracker! I was searching for videos to help me plan our Universal Orlando vacation last year and he had so many awesome and informative videos. Then I started watching his videos on Disney World and other theme parks. Before you knew it I was watching the home vlogs and mail vlogs too! My husband would make jokes that I was in love with Tim, but that wasn’t it at all! I just LOVE their videos! *By the way – his wife Jenn is super awesome too!
We actually met them at Cowfish during our trip to Universal in October. My whole family knew that I watched their videos and I guess they had been sitting behind me for a while before my family finally let on that they were there. My family members were all pointing at me and whispering (real classy guys). I can say that they are just as down to earth and genuinely kind as they are in their videos! It made me like them even more!
Cory Meets World
Cory and Stephanie are another awesome couple who are living in Florida and vlogging my dream… I mean… their dream! Cory Meets World focuses mostly on Disney as well, but also incorporate a lot of LIVE videos as well! If you enjoy watching LIVE streams from various places at Disney World then you definitely need to make sure that you subscribe (and hit the bell) to their channel!
The WDW Couple
If you watch Disney YouTube videos and you don’t know who The WDW Couple is then I don’t believe you. Taylor & Josh are another down to earth couple vlogging at Disney and I love how they are doing this TOGETHER. Probably one of my favorite things about their videos are their dining reviews! The butter spread-ability scale is just the funniest thing… if you don’t know what I’m talking about you better watch some of their videos! They are also what brought me to Goldgell Getaways as a travel agent!
I watched Michael Kay a few times because he has REALLY informative videos. But I never really connected to his videos on a personal level. Maybe because he’s a single guy and I’m a Mom? Not sure what it was! However, I got HOOKED to watching his cruise videos and then he moved to Florida and it was over. Now I’m following his story because his dream is my dream! He has recently started vlogging with his brother Dave as well who has his own channel. I love that his channel is always family friendly and I never have to worry about watching with my son. You should definitely check him out!
The Pintastic Girls
I “met” these ladies through an Instagram group that I was in and I am SO glad that I did! Bethany & her three daughters LOVE to share Pinterest crafts on their YouTube channel, but they also do a lot of cute Disney crafts and unboxings! You can always count on this channel being “safe” to watch with your kiddos. She may even inspire the least crafty people (like me) to try out some fun Disney crafts! Make sure you check out THE PINTASTIC GIRLS!
Lau Family Travels on YOUTUBE!
In July of 2018 Ashtyn and I started our YouTube Channel together! It wasn’t exactly what he had in mind (he wanted to do a gaming channel), but we have had so much fun together doing this. I never thought that I would prefer vlogging over blogging, but in some ways I do! We have been focusing on Disney & Universal travel tips, reviews, unboxings, and more! My husband started joining us in videos as well and now it’s a whole family affair! Please check it out and don’t forget to subscribe!
