Meet The Hosts
Lourin’s Disney obsession began early in life. After watching Fantasmic on his first Trip to Disneyland in the summer of 1992 Lourin was hooked. From movies to theme parks Lourin has enjoyed everything Disney ever since. During his undergraduate studies he completed his first Disney College Program in the Fall of 2010 working in Magic Kingdom at the Pirates of the Caribbean and returning again for a summer alumni program in 2011 and completing a Professional Internship in Guest Relations at Magic Kingdom in 2012. Lourin currently lives in California and is a Disneyland Annual Passholder. After the birth of his daughter in 2016 he began his own podcast and met Bill And Liz Winter and a Disney bond was created.
After some time off from his podcast Lourin was asked to join the Spark A Dream Podcast and since then has been the co host of every episode of the podcast.
Bill is a lifelong Disney fan and former Disney cast member. After starting with Disney’s college program, Bill worked in merchandising and multiple Disney attractions including One Man’s Dream, Jungle Cruise, and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Bill and Liz founded Dreamers Do Travels in 2015- earning the distinguished ‘earmarked’ designation the past two years. Their agency offers over 20 difference destinations outside of Disney properties but specializes in Disney travel.
