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 49 – Summer 2023 Disney Cruise Line Itineraries

Summer 2023 Disney Cruise Line Itineraries

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

Aaron, Tim and Willie talk about the (at the time) newly-released Disney Cruise Line itineraries for Summer/Fall 2023. The panel talks about the highlights of the itineraries that were released, offers some thoughts about pricing (comparing opening day rates for Summer/Fall 2022 with these prices), and spends a little bit of time on the elephant in the room – Disney Wish. Most of the show is spent talking about Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. But the relocation of Disney Dream to Miami is also addressed.

Producer/Engineer’s Note: My apologies for this show posting so long after it was recorded. I could have SWORN that I’d already edited and posted this show. Even my color-coded planning notes had it coded as having already been published. So you can imagine my surprise when I was getting ready to work on the next show, and saw that this one still hadn’t been posted! I’ll have more Disney Cruise Line discussion for you in the next few days, as I work to get caught up with the show postings. Thank you for your patience. -Aaron
