Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Brad Coates, Dave Juart, Jay Gilbert

Way back in 2011, we talked about Moderate category resort hotels at Walt Disney World. Three years (and two major refurbishment projects later) we revisit the category. David, Jay, Brad and I talk about each resort’s strengths and weaknesses and explain why Moderates seem to frequently be the “forgotten category” among Walt Disney World resorts.

For comparison’s sake, our previous episodes about the WDW Moderate Resort hotels can be found here:
Port Orleans & Caribbean Beach: Podcast Episode 18
WDW Moderate “Plus” Resorts: Podcast Episode 20

Disney Guilty Pleasures – Episode 294

GuiltyPleasuresHost: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Brett Williams and Nathan Trent

This week, the panel talks about our Disney Guilty Pleasures. It’s a bit shorter than our usual panel show. In the course of the recording, we realize that there’s really not much Disney about which a DISDad feels guilty! (But we talk through the best examples we could come up with anyway). 🙂

What do you think of our Disney guilty pleasures? do you have any Disney guilty pleasures of your own? Tell us about them!

DAD Show #108 – Springtime in Disneyland with David Platt


This week’s DAD Show was originally scheduled to run last week before our little surprise for the Nicely family popped up. This time, David Platt’s Disneyland trip report gives us a bit of a contrast to Chad’s Disneyland report from (now) two weeks ago. David talks about checking out Candy Cane Inn for the first time, enjoying the Frozen Fun elements at California Adventure, and some great touring tips for when you’re staying at a Good Neighbor Hotel and so don’t have access to Extra Magic Hours. He also talks dining at Carthay Circle and Blue Bayou (with a young child) and reveals some hidden gems, including playing musical chairs with Alice and the Mad Hatter and the Running of the Goats at Big Thunder Ranch (video above).

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