Whirlwind Touring at Walt Disney World LIVE – Episode 368

WhirlwindWDWHost: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: Brett Williams, Don Donfris, Jay Gilbert

On this month’s live show, we took the whirlwind touring conversation from last week’s show, and had it again for Walt Disney World. The panels discussed different touring strategies, depending on with whom we were traveling. And we also considered different scenarios that might push us to consider a single park when we might otherwise Park Hop on a whirlwind touring day. During a brief break in the show, Jay Gilbert talked about the Polar Bear Superplunge in which he and Carl Finsel will be participating in just a few weeks to raise funds for Pennsylvania Special Olympics. If you want to help Jay and Carl make their goal, to give them the privilege of dunking themselves in freezing water once/hour for 24 hours, you can donate to them using either of these links:
