DAD Show #159 – Todd Morgan’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Trip Report

Todd Morgan's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad, Trip Report
For this week’s DAD Show, Todd Morgan takes us back twenty years plus for a sort of historical trip report. He shares the story (stories) of a rather remarkable vacation trip to Walt Disney World taken back in 1995. After all that happened on this trip, it’s a wonder that Todd has remained a devoted fan of Disney Parks. Listen in for the nightmare tale of Todd Morgan’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Trip Report!

Blue Sky: Roller Coasters – Episode 394

Blue Sky: Roller Coasters - Episode 394Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Eric Anderson, Don Donfris, Tim Hicks & Ryan Treichler

Come along for the ride as the panel mines their imaginations for roller coaster concepts for United States Disney Parks. Blue Sky means the sky’s the limit. Budget, technology (and physics) aside, we came up with ideas for coasters to add to nearly every U.S. park. And some of them are actually pretty good!

DAD Show #158 – Whirlwind Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon with Bob Chavez & Matt Halbauer

12993497_10209211749521554_2188998231898674100_nBob Chavez and Matt Halbauer are back on the DAD Show, talking about their truly insane whirlwind trip to Walt Disney World so that Bob could run in the Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon. Hear all about their road trip – roughly 28 hours of driving time for about 15 hours in the Magic Kingdom (with a nice side order of Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar thrown in), and all fueled by (many) Citrus Swirls and a pixie-dusted lunch at Skipper’s Canteen.

On this week’s DAD Show, Scott Stradtman talks about his family’s Spring Break vacation at Walt Disney World. They had a great time during one of the busiest weeks of the year at WDW, and Scott has some great tips for enjoying a multi-generational trip. Our discussion included talk about La Cava del Tequila and San Angel Inn in the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot, as well as other Epcot highlights like Biergarten and introducing Scott’s daughter to Beverly.
