Best Value-Added Disney Vacation Experiences – Episode 490

DISDads Podcast Episode 490 - Best Value-Added Disney Vacation Experiences with Host: Aaron Rittmaster and Panel: James Cameron, Brad Coates and Chad King
Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Panel: James Cameron, Brad Coates, Chad King

The DISDads Podcast panel turns its attention this week to what might be collective referred to as “upcharge events” that are becoming increasingly common in connection with just about all Disney Destination vacations. We look at which of these value-added events are worth the extra cost and which just aren’t worth digging deeper into your pockets for.

Which is your favorite value-added Disney vacation experience? Which did you feel failed to give you your money’s worth? Tell us about them! Leave a comment here on the blog; Email us at podcast@disdads.com; tweet us at DisDadsPodcast on Twitter; and check out our DISDads Podcast Facebook page.

DAD Show #138 – WDW Summer and a side of Clearwater with James Cameron

11813277_10207041133934134_2060519333075322767_nJames Cameron returns to the DAD Show, to catch us up on his family’s summer vacation to Walt Disney World, including a mid-vacation side-trip to Clearwater for the day. We talk about enjoying a number of “firsts,” even as veteran WDW travelers. James and his family were staying at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge for the first time, enjoyed several new restaurants (including Artist Point and Roaring Forks at Wilderness Lodge, as well as Mama Melrose and even T-Rex). And it wouldn’t be a James Cameron trip report without a disaster story along the way 😉 .

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.
