Thank you to Dewayne Bevil and the Orlando Sentinel for featuring my channel and the love and passion for bringing the parks to you “through the lens of this livestreamer” Here is a little from the article and also a link to the podcast.

Do you ever dream of spending your days enjoying the theme parks and making a living out of it? Chris Spokesmayne does just that. He spends at least five days a week live streaming on YouTube his visits to Central Florida’s attractions (Disney’s Magic Kingdom is his favorite).

Viewers are right there with Chris, virtually walking alongside and communicating through comments. They even help select what rides he goes on.

“I always view the live streams as a window. Imagine you are looking through a window into the world of theme parks and you are really there, when you are not there,” Chris explains.

And, yes, Chris makes a living doing this. How else could he afford the pricey theme-park food?

Chris talks with Theme Park Ranger Dewayne Bevil about this live-stream subculture and the bonus music parodies he creates.
