No spoilers in the show notes – but the polls will get posted to DISDads.com and the DISDads Podcast Facebook Page.You can download a bracket if you’d like to follow along at home. And remember – we need YOUR help to break ties that tend to come up along the way. Polls to help break the ties will be posted on the DISDads.com website and the DISDads Podcast Facebook Page.

My Walt Disney World 2018: Selection Sunday – Episode 582

DISDads Podcast Episode 582

Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Panelists: Roy David, Mel Oliver, Nathan Trent & Mikaela Rittmaster

It’s tournament time again! Mel Oliver, Roy David, Nathan Trent and Mikaela Rittmaster join host Aaron Rittmaster to set the field for the 2018 My Walt Disney World tournament. We’re revisiting Walt Disney World attractions at tournament time for the first time since June 2012. Haunted Mansion came out on top back then. But a lot has changed at Walt Disney World over the last six years! We’re setting the first this time using the same method we used for last summer’s Quick Service Dining Tournament – with a field drafted by our panelists, and then arranged in a seeded S-curve, like the NCAA basketball tournament. You can download a bracket if you’d like to follow along at home (but it is a bit of a spoiler to look at the bracket and see the seedings before listening to the selection show). Remember – as the tournament progresses, we will likely need YOUR help to break ties that tend to come up along the way.

What do you think of panelists choices? Who reached too early for an attraction that would have been available later? What undrafted attraction should have made the field? Tell us about it!

DISDads Hawaiian Shirt Pre-Orders Are Here!

DISDads Hawaiian Shirt Pre-Orders Are Here!

By popular demand, DISDads Hawaiian shirts are here. I LOVE the design, created by the supremely talented Kevin Quigley, co-host of The Thirty20Eight Podcast. Production of these shirts takes a bit more than a t-shirt. This design isn’t printed on top of the shirt. Rather, the design is essentially “baked-in” to the 100% nylon fabric through a process called dye sublimation. Then the fabric is custom-cut and sewn to create the shirts. The result is a soft, slightly stretchy shirt in strong, vibrant color that doesn’t crack, peel, or fade.

In order to raise the funds to kick start production of these shirts, the first 10 shirts are being sold as part of premium packages at a higher cost. Purchasers of one of the 5 Maui Packages will receive a DISDads coffee mug and a DISDads tumbler, in addition to their shirt. All three items together are a $121 retail value, being sold for a base price of $100 (plus any up charge for shirts larger than XL). The five Tamatoa Packages each include both a shirt and a tumbler, and all 10 of the premium packages will ship out two weeks before shirt-only purchases.

As soon as the 10 special package have been purchased, we’ll set a deadline for shirt-only purchases. Because of the unit cost of these shirts, we can’t really afford to carry inventory. So we can’t send the shirts to production until the orders are in. Once we send to production, they get turned around pretty quickly. Packages will be sent first to Maui Package and Tamatoa Package purchasers, and then the rest of the shirt orders will be fulfilled approximately two weeks later. The sooner you all get your orders in, the sooner the shirts will go to production.

DISDads.com Logowear FOR KIDS Teespring Campaign – Order by July 30, 2017

Disdads.Com Logowear New! Kids Stuff! Order at Teespring.comAfter launching the initial DISDads.com logowear campaign over on Teespring, I got questions about whether children’s sizes were available. I learned that kids’ sizes require their own silkscreen (because the adult screen is too large), and if it requires its own screen, it has to be run as a separate campaign, with a separate minimum order.

So here are the kids’ sizes – available for 10 days only. We’re offering a t-shirt and a hoodie. They’ve got the same circle logo on the back as the adult shirts, but for the front, I’ve gone with a larger banner (to make it easier to spot a kid wearing one in a crowd).

Prices are, again, well below Teespring’s recommended level, and 50% of the profit still goes directly to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The campaign expires July 30, 2017, and we do have to hit a separate minimum order threshold before they’ll print and ship them (though the minimum is pretty low).
