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).

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

WDW Value Resort Roundup - Episode 486 with Brady Aymond, David Juart, Nathan Trent and host Aaron Rittmaster

It’s been almost two years since we last discussed the Walt Disney World Value resorts as a category.

Rich Dad/Poor Dad: DCL Edition – Episode 484

Rich Dad/Poor Dad: DCL Edition - Episode 484 with Joshua Watters and Paul; Host: Aaron Rittmaster

Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Joshua Watters & Paul

Way back in Episode 66, the panel played a game of “Rich Man/Poor Man,” coming up with the most expensive and least expensive vacation packages we could at Walt Disney World. This week, we take the same challenge and apply it to the Disney Cruise Line. In addition to having some fun with the extreme edges of Disney Cruise vacation costs, the panel talks about some basic tips for finding Disney Cruise Line value (and also where a splurge might be worth it).

What are you favorite Disney Cruise Line value tips? 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.
