The Best Disney Movie Kisses – Episode 372

Lady-and-the-Tramp-kissHost: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: James Cameron, Michael Ehmke, Shaun Harris

For this Valentine’s Day episode of the DISDads Podcast, we welcome a couple of guests to the show to help us create a DISDad-worthy list of the Best Disney Movie Kisses. We’re joined by Michael Ehmke of the We Be Geeks Network and the Mighty Marvel Geeks podcast and Shaun Harris of DLRtoday, as well as returning DISDads podcaster James Cameron (who is often reluctant, for some reason, to mention is own Disney blog, Home is Where the Mouse Is). Without sharing our selections in advance, we came up with a sort of top 20 list of Disney Kisses, with no repeats.

DAD Show #147 – Couples’ WDW Long Weekend with Mark Harbeson

Pre-opening Main Street U.S.A.This week on the DAD Show, Mark Harbeson talks about the value of a couples’ vacation at Walt Disney World. We discussed the particulars of Mark and his wife’s trip, including their stay in a new Deluxe Studio at the Polynesian resort, the finer points of the Yachtsman Steakhouse, enjoying the Walt Disney World holiday decorations, and getting to experience a backstage tour of the Magic Kingdom. But we also talked about the underlying importance of husbands and wives getting away together away from the kids.

DAD Show #146 – Disney Fantasy Group Sailing with Josh Watters

Disney Fantasy Animator's PalateThis week, the DAD Show gets back to our bread and butter, and welcomes a new voice to the DISDads community. Josh Watters talks about sailing the Caribbean on the Disney Fantasy with an extended group of family and friends. While we covered pretty much every aspect of their cruise, Josh is a chef by trade. So we spent a little extra time on their dining experience, especially their dinner in Gusteau’s Room at Remy, and brunch at Palo. We also got to hear Josh’s thoughts on one of Disney Cruise Line’s newest ports, Tortola.

Whirlwind Touring at Walt Disney World LIVE – Episode 368

WhirlwindWDWHost: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Brett Williams, Don Donfris, Jay Gilbert

On this month’s live show, we took the whirlwind touring conversation from last week’s show, and had it again for Walt Disney World. The panels discussed different touring strategies, depending on with whom we were traveling. And we also considered different scenarios that might push us to consider a single park when we might otherwise Park Hop on a whirlwind touring day. During a brief break in the show, Jay Gilbert talked about the Polar Bear Superplunge in which he and Carl Finsel will be participating in just a few weeks to raise funds for Pennsylvania Special Olympics. If you want to help Jay and Carl make their goal, to give them the privilege of dunking themselves in freezing water once/hour for 24 hours, you can donate to them using either of these links:
