DAD Show #253 – Just like you tell everyone NOT to do it: WDW with Nathan Trent

DAD Show #253 - Just like you tell everyone NOT to do it. WDW with Nathan Trent and Host Aaron Rittmaster

Nathan Trent joins host Aaron Rittmaster to talk about his short-notice trip to Walt Disney World. Nate did just about all of the things he warns others NOT to do on a WDW trip – from only giving himself two weeks to plan to staying offsite to traveling over a summer holiday weekend. And he STILL had a great father-son trip, including some great first-time experiences, like Toy Story Land and the Star Wars VR experience The Void, with a group of DISDads in Disney Springs.

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!

DAD Show #252 – An Incredible Summer at Walt Disney World with David Juart

David Juart is back on the DAD Show, talking about his family’s annual summer vacation to Walt Disney World. David shares his thoughts on renovated rooms at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort (and not-renovated but extra-large rooms at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa), the planning challenges created by guessing wrong about a major attraction opening date, and (of course) plenty of talk about food and drink. We also found time to talk about new character meet & greets in Dinoland U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and both of David’s favorite breakfasts at Walt Disney World – the bakery in France and the Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno.
