Episode 50 - Willie's Pre-Trip Report

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

In this week’s episode, Willie takes the hot seat to talk about the plans for an upcoming family trip to Walt Disney World. We talk about the all of the steps of his planning process, and take a long look at the impact COVID-19 had on the planning and preparation for this vacation. Hopefully, this peek inside Willie’s own planning process will give you some ideas that will help as you’re planning your next Walt Disney World vacation.

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

DISDads Podcast PLUS – Episode 48 – Talking DDCC X with Terry Hawkins & Joe Masters

Episode 48 - Talking DDCC X with Terry and Joe

Host: Aaron Rittmaster
Co-Hosts: Tim Hicks
Special Guests: Terrance Hawkins & Joe Masters

Terrance Hawkins and Joe Masters join host Aaron Rittmaster and co-host Tim Hicks to talk about DDCC X, coming up January 5 – 9, 2022. 10 years? Yep, this will mark 10 years of Dis Dads Club Convention meetups at Walt Disney World over the traditional Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. This discussion is mostly an introduction to the idea of the DDCC, and some history and reminiscence. We plan to follow with more DDCC conversations, probably about once/month, for the next eight months or so until we get to convention time. For more information about DDCC X, send an Email or Facebook message to Terry or Joe. They can send you an invitation to the Private Facebook Group for the event (since we discuss specific travel plans, many people understandably comfortable with that discussion happening in the open).

The Moment of Surprise:

DISDads Podcast PLUS – Episode 35 – 2020 Holiday Season at Walt Disney World

The one where Willie offers to buy THREE ROUNDS!

Episode 35 - 2020 Holiday Season at Walt Disney World

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

Aaron, Willie and Tim talk about the upcoming holiday seasons at Walt Disney World. We share the information that has already been released (no MNSSHP or MVMCP, extended Food & Wine offerings and special entertainment at Epcot, etc.), as well as speculating about some things for which we haven’t seen official announcements yet.

Holiday crowds will be much lower than usual this year, due to capacity controls. If you’re comfortable traveling with your family toward the end of this year, the experience available at Walt Disney World will be unlike any you’ve ever experienced before (and any you’re likely to experience in the future)!
