DISDads Podcast PLUS – Episode 64: WDW Park Rankings

Episode 64: WDW Park Rankings

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

What’s your favorite Walt Disney World theme park is not as simple a question as it seems. Sure, we all have our personal favorites in general. But particular circumstances might mean that under those conditions, you would rank the parks differently. Aaron, Willie and Tim look at a number of situations, primarily related to perks for onsite guests and the new Disney Genie service to see how they impact their rankings.
(Note: This show was recorded in late September, and some of the implementation details of the Genie service were still speculative. Most of our assessments hold up pretty well).

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).
