This week, the podcast panel offers ideas for preparing to handle a variety of things that can go wrong during a Walt Disney World vacation. The panel suggests alternatives to popular restaurants that may be unavailable, strategies for dealing with inconvenient FastPass+ availability, and options when discounts are available (but not at your preferred resort).

What are some of your favorite alternatives when your first choices aren’t available? How do you deal with unexpected changes? Tell us about it!

DISDads Podcast Episode 400 - Disney News and Rumors Oddsmakers, Part 2

Host: Aaron Ritmaster
Panel: Jon Arthur, Kevin Crossman, Dave Juart

This week we continue our Oddsmakers discussion, picking up with goings-on around the Walt Disney World resort, and continuing to other Disney Parks, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the Disney company itself. This also marks our 400th episode release, and we also recently crossed a major listenership threshold, as we’ve now had over 100,000 unique downloads of a DISDads show. I know that’s small potatoes for some podcasters, but it’s pretty darned exciting for us – thank you for listening!
