The DVC Life: Part 1 – Episode 316

DVCMickeyMinniePinHost: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Brad Coates, Tim Hicks, Brett Williams

This week, the panel begins a short series of shows, discussing the Disney Vacation Club timeshare program. We initially covered DVC waaaay back in episode Episode 11, almost exactly four years ago. This time around, we’re breaking it down and taking a more systematic approach to the discussion. In part 1, the panel covers the basics of what Disney Vacation Club is and some basic mechanics of the DVC program. We’ll follow up soon, building on the basics covered here.

DAD Show #117 – We’re Getting the Band Back Together with Alan Fuller

We get a little bit different kind of DAD Show this week, as I talk with Alan Fuller about his trip to Walt Disney World for a reunion with his fellow members of the Walt Disney World All-American Orchestra. First, we learn interesting tidbits about the history of Walt Disney World performing arts programs. Then, we get to hear about reuniting members of several different All-American College Orchestra groups to perform live at Walt Disney World, roughly 30 years after they’d last performed (and really, this particular group had never performed together before this performance in Downtown Disney). We also get to hear about the non-band part of Alan’s trip, the last part of which was accompanied by his husband Joe.

The DAD Show is your humpday Disney vacation fix. Our intro and outro music was created and performed by Mitch Furman.
