An Amazing Friend

An Amazing Friend

It is with great sadness to announce that Anthony Barnasconi has passed away on Sunday, December 6, 2015.

For those of you that don’t know, Tony was a blogger here at Disney Pins Blog and also helped run the DPB Podcast. He owned Tony’s Magical Travel, and was a Disney certified travel agent. Above all, he was an amazing friend and will truly be missed.

Tony has been a writer at Disney Pins Blog since summer 2015 and he and myself (Ryan) started in August 2015. It was a weekly pin and news podcast where him and I recorded every Sunday night together. New episodes launched every Monday. Our last episode together was November 30, 2015.

One of my favorite memories with Tony was when we recorded together live from Disney Springs right next to the Pin Traders store. The stars aligned and we were both at Walt Disney World during the same time. Here is a picture from that day.
