Episode #306 - A trip to the World





Overview: Early this month, I took a trip up to Disney with the family.  The temps dipped near freezing, but we were undeterred and had a great time, visiting the parks, meeting princesses, and riding attractions.  I've got stories to tell, and suggest how you can make the most of your vacation. 




Notes:  That's the view from the monorail.  Each time I go, I try and find at least one thing I've never done before - or perhaps haven't done in a long time.  It seems like this list can never be exhausted - because there is so much to do, and new things are being added all the time.  Plus, there are some surprises that lurk around many corners.

Episode #305a - more thoughts about the Last Jedi




Overview: More thoughts (and spoilers) about Episode 8: the Last Jedi.  I watched a bunch of reviews, and they got me to thinking about the film.  So I wanted to share that... 


Notes:  There are a lot of varying views about the movie.  Just take a a peek at youtube, and you can find good, bad an indifferent reviews.  But there's no denying the popularity of the film; its already exceeded $60 billion in tickets sales.

Episodes #303 & #304 - Holidays Around the World





Overview: Just in time for the holiday season, I present a look at what was formerly known as Holidays Around the World - now renamed to International Festival of the Holidays. I talk about what there is to see and do, and present some audio from each of the holiday storytellers. 


Notes:  Check out videos from each pavilion, and other things to do and see.  Although I say in the podcast that I hadn't seen the new Hanukkah-themed exhibition, I did find a video.  Post any comments you have about the festival below!

Episodes #301 & #302 - My recent trip




Overview: I spent a few days up at the world recently, and I'm talking about it.  I did the food and wine festival, checked out progress on Star Wars land, and visited Pandora for the first time.  Of course, I have requisite observations and stories to tell.     



Notes:  I had fun riding on Soarin' without shoes, weird as that is.
