DAD Show #128 – Making Annual Passes Count with Tim Gearin

11960122_10207576796320858_3027082657519710897_nTim Gearin is back on the DAD Show this week, talking about his end-of-summer return to Walt Disney World. He and his (now) wife managed to both squeeze a third WDW vacation out of their wedding gift Annual Passes AND managed to plan it so that they got to celebrate a birthday with their nephew (DISDad Paul’s son). Their trip included some great lesser-discussed experiences (including a special viewing location for Illuminations at Epcot, a Pirates and Pals Fireworks Cruise to celebrate that birthday) and a nice mix of adult solo vacation time and family vacation time.

TRAPPED (Live) – Episode 332

PeopleTrapHost: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Philip Holt, Joshua Shusterman, John Thomas

The September live show features a discussion of a topic suggested by DISDad Kevin Crossman. The panel members identify the themed land in each of the Walt Disney World theme parks that they would choose to be trapped in — forever! As a bonus, each panel member also picked a themed land at Disneyland Resort in which to be trapped. Special thanks to Joe Master and Paul for their contributions during the live show in the chatroom.

Join us for our next live show on Sunday, October 25, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. Central Time at http://radio.disdads.com/

DAD Show #126 – A WDW Vacation at the Refurbished Paul-ynesian Village Resort

IMG_3355This week on the DAD Show, Paul stops by to talk about his first stay at the post-refurbishment Polynesian Village Resort. Our resident Polynesian pool bar aficionado also shares his impressions of Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, the refurbished pool, the Deluxe Studio rooms in the now-DVC buildings, and his children’s impressions of the recently-renamed Lilo’s Playhouse kids’ club. And we also manage to squeeze in some discussion of his family’s experiences in the parks (and on the Seven Seas Lagoon) as well. And remember, if you can fit a Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage into your next WDW trip, just charge it to Tim!*

*Disney probably won’t let you charge it to Tim. And Tim would probably start getting pretty cranky by, like, the fourth or fifth charge. Follow Paul’s advice on that at your own risk.
