DISDads Discussions Boards De-Commissioned

As I’ve mentioned on a few of the podcasts recently, and in the Facebook group, it’s time to retire the DISDads Discussion Boards. Traffic has been very low for quite some time now, and the maintenance costs (both in time and money) were disproportionately high. Even today, as I was in the management interface to turn the boards off, there were another 300+ spammer attempts to register for the boards. If you navigate to the Discussion Board URL now, you will see the announcement that they’ve been decommissioned. If there is information on those boards that is important to you/you need an opportunity to retrieve, please send Email to me at boards@disdads.com and I will do my best to arrange for a way for you to access that information and retrieve it. In order to reclaim the web space being taken up by the board installation, I will be deleting the boards entirely from the server at the end of January, 2017. So if you need to recovery anything, please notify me as soon as possible. Once the boards of have deleted, it will not be possible to retrieve what has been deleted. Out of respect for the privacy of those who posted to the private sections of the boards, I will NOT be retaining any backup/archive of the boards.

If you were an A-Ticket subscriber, your recurring subscription has been cancelled. If you subscribed at any other level, the subscription was not set to be a recurring payment. If you run into any issues with a subscription payment to the DISDads discussion boards, just let me know at the Email address above, and I’ll take care of it.

DAD Show #188 – Tagging Along to WDW with Nathan Trent

DAD Show #188 - Tagging Along to WDW with Nathan Trent
On this week’s DAD Show, we tag along with Nathan Trent, as he tags along with his nephew’s family for his nephew’s first trip to Walt Disney World. Nate shares his impressions of some of the Disney Visa cardholder perks at Epcot (especially during the Food & Wine Festival). We also get Nate’s take on the “Food & Food Festival” – and even his opinion on a couple of beers. And throughout, we get the flavor of a different kind of trip, sort of a hybrid between a family trip with young children and a solo Walt Disney World vacation.

The DAD Show is sponsored by Kingdom Strollers, Orlando’s Premium Stroller and Crib Rental source.

Have you ever tagged along with someone else’s Walt Disney World vacation? Have another Disney vacation experience you’d like to share? We’d love to hear about it! Email us at podcast@DisDads.com; tweet us at DisDadsPodcast on Twitter; and check out our DISDads Podcast Facebook page.
