Best Value-Added Disney Vacation Experiences – Episode 490

DISDads Podcast Episode 490 - Best Value-Added Disney Vacation Experiences with Host: Aaron Rittmaster and Panel: James Cameron, Brad Coates and Chad King
Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: James Cameron, Brad Coates, Chad King

The DISDads Podcast panel turns its attention this week to what might be collective referred to as “upcharge events” that are becoming increasingly common in connection with just about all Disney Destination vacations. We look at which of these value-added events are worth the extra cost and which just aren’t worth digging deeper into your pockets for.

Which is your favorite value-added Disney vacation experience? Which did you feel failed to give you your money’s worth? 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.

DAD Show #191 – Holiday Time at Disneyland with David Platt

DAD Show #191 - Holiday Time at Disneyland with David Platt
David Platt is back to take us along on his annual family trip to Disneyland. This year, they pushed the trip back a few weeks so they could enjoy Disneyland all decked out for Christmas. David also sprang a surprise pre-Disneyland day at Universal Studios Hollywood on his Harry Potter-obsessed daughter for their first look at the West Coast version of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. David borrowed a page from fellow DISDad Alan Fuller’s playbook, and splurged on the VIP Tour to make sure they got to enjoy it all.
