A Bit About Daps Magic

Daps Magic was created by a very special group of Disney Annual Passholders (now Magic Key holders) and Disney Fans who had a dream for a place on the internet that people young and old could share their love of Walt Disney and his legacies in a safe and fun atmosphere.

We meet in the Disney Theme Parks regularly and consider this a SANCTUARY where people can enjoy sharing ideas, stories, news, trivia, tips, and tricks about the Disney Parks or Company.

There are lots of ways to enjoy Daps Magic. Members can experience the joys of seeing sights in the Disney Theme Parks, learn tips on how to optimize Disney trips to catch the most of favorite Disney attractions, thank amazing Disney Cast Members, or find our team members on social media! Also, check out the Daps Magic group on Facebook, submit and vote on captions for the Caption of the Week, or join the Daps Magic Patreon!

Check out GEEKS CORNER regularly. GEEKS CORNER is Daps Magic’s weekly web show that streams live every Tuesday night at 8:30 PST. This show can be about anything geeky that we come up with. It could be about Disney related topics but definitely is not confined to just Disney. So check back and see as we write about Disney movies, Star Wars, Star Trek, comic books, conventions, events, and whatever else suits our fancy.

Daps Magic is for anyone who is into Disney and positive stuff and who wants to have fun geeking out with other geeks. We don’t discriminate! We just ask that you be of positive mind and want to contribute to the positive environment we have created here!
