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.

Panel: Johnny Griffis, Jason Mitts, Ryan Treichler

On this week’s live podcast, the panel looks back at two years worth of DISDads Podcast prediction shows. We assessed the accuracy of our predictions so far, took the opportunity to revise a few, and wrapped up with one new prediction each for the upcoming D23 Expo.

DAD Show #116 – Hot Times Summer at WDW with David Juart

On this week’s DAD Show, David Juart reviews the trip that he previewed on the podcast back at the end of May. David and I had fun chatting, so this one runs longer than most. But the report covers a broad range of Walt Disney World experiences in a lot of detail. We talk Pop Century resort, all four theme parks, FastPass+, making more dining decisions on the fly and paying out of pocket vs. the Deluxe Dining Plan, Star Wars Weekends, Walt Disney World beer, first time attraction experiences, great character interactions, and much, much more!

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

DAD Show #112 – Aparicios Return to Orlando

On this week’s DAD Show, Oscar Aparicio and his daughter Lexi look back at a couple of short visits to Universal Orlando theme parks, and forward to their impending Walt Disney World vacation. These are their first visits back to the parks since moving away from Orlando about a year ago. They talk about Lexi’s triumphant choir trip to Universal for a competition; some of the differences in their approaches to the parks, due to their proximity to them; and more! (Note: Any listeners who know Oscar know that recording a show with him that could be classified as “CLEAN” was a challenge. I hope the editing captures him accurately without detracting from your enjoyment of his report).

DAD Show #111 – A Nicely Orlando Vacation

On this week’s DAD Show, I talk with David — and the six Nicely kids — about the Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando vacation (previewed during the surprise live trip preview a few weeks ago). We talk long-distance driving, Saratoga Springs, Animal Kingdom Lodge and touring theme parks at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando with a touring party of six children and two adults. The kids share a couple of their favorite things about the trip and David reflects on memories made with the assistance of his friends and the kids’ “DISDad Uncles” around the world.
