Welcome to the opening round of the DISDads Dream Theme Park draft! The panelists, divided into three teams, began drafting elements from all of the Disney-owned theme parks (Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disneyland Paris, and Walt Disney Studios Park). Each team is attempting to develop it’s own well-themed resort, including attractions, shows, dining and hotels. Each team’s effort is required to fill all of the following requirements:
- 2 Dark Ride Attractions
- 2 Thrill Ride Attractions
- 2 “Children’s” Attractions (No or very low height requirement and attractive to young children)
- 2 Shows
- 1 Quick Service Restaurants
- 1 Table Service Restaurants
- 1 Snack Cart/Stand
- 1 Nighttime Entertainment
- 1 Park Icon/Weenie
- 3 Hotels – 1 Deluxe, 1 Moderate, 1 Value
- 2 Wildcards (these can be anything)
The teams will be concluding their drafts during next week’s LIVE podcast, scheduled for Sunday, March 29 at 8 p.m. Central/9 p.m. Eastern over on DISDads Radio. After the draft is finished, each team will get the opportunity to “pitch” it’s park, and then we’ll ask the listeners to score their efforts. May the best men win!
