Bob Chavez is back on the DAD Show, this time with the whole crew in tow for an EPIC Spring Break road trip from St. Louis to Toronto, Canada. The Chavez clan stops along the way in Detroit, catches an NBA basketball game (along with a player’s autograph on a pair of shoes too big even for Bob), visits the Stanley Cup, allows a stranger to borrow some of the children at a museum, and discovers the wonders of poutine and waterfalls.

Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: James Cameron, Brad Coates, Chad King

The DISDads Podcast panel turns its attention this week to what might be collective referred to as “upcharge events” that are becoming increasingly common in connection with just about all Disney Destination vacations. We look at which of these value-added events are worth the extra cost and which just aren’t worth digging deeper into your pockets for.

Which is your favorite value-added Disney vacation experience? Which did you feel failed to give you your money’s worth? Tell us about them! Leave a comment here on the blog; Email us at podcast@disdads.com; tweet us at DisDadsPodcast on Twitter; and check out our DISDads Podcast Facebook page.

DAD Show #206 – A Trip to the Dark Side with Adam Dale

DAD Show #206 - A Trip to the Dark Side with Adam Dale
Host Aaron Rittmaster talks with Adam Dale about his family’s Spring Break vacation to Universal Orlando Resort. We discuss their resort choice (Loews Portofino Bay Resort), favorite attractions (Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, among others), great character interactions (with Marvel characters, a dinosaur, even the Grinch), and fun dining (I think the Dales may have eaten at every restaurant in CityWalk during their five-night vacation).
