DISDads Podcast PLUS – Episode 58: Assessing the Debut of Disney Genie Service

Episode 58: Assessing the Debut of Disney Genie

Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Co-Hosts: Tim Hicks & Willie Crocker

This episode was recorded on the evening of Tuesday, October 19, the “go live” date for Disney Genie Service. Aaron, Tim, and Willie spent the day gathering information and reactions from people who were using the service at Walt Disney World on launch day. This is our assessment of the rollout, based on the feedback we collected. (Note: We know that many people had individual issues with the service. Those are important, and we do not wish to minimize them. But we stand by our assessment, based on the overall weight of the feedback we received both prior to recording the episode and in the couple of weeks since).

DISDads Podcast PLUS – Episode 56 – “Plussing” Walt Disney World

Episode 56: "Plussing" Walt Disney World

Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Co-Hosts: Tim Hicks & Willie Crocker

First, we had MyMagic+, which begat FastPass+. Then came Disney+. Now, we’re getting “Plus Gen.2” with Disney Genie+. Other companies have gotten in on the act too, with Apple calling their streaming service AppleTV+.

But Disney has a history of “plussing” that goes all the way back to Walt himself, looking for ways of providing just a little something extra to give guests a reason to come back to his theme park again. In this episode, Aaron, Willie and Tim talk about areas of Walt Disney World that could use some “plussing,” and offer some ideas for enhancing these areas.
