Episodes #193 and #194 - First hand experience with MyMagic+ in the Magic Kingdom

Overview: Its a podcast so big that it spans two episodes! Today, I am in the Magic Kingdom trying out my MagicBand, FastPass+, and checking out some of the changes that have taken (or are taking!) place. Come and take a listen as I spend my day wandering around and telling stories...   

Notes: I didn't like the feeling of the MagicBand on my arm, but overall, the system was working well enough. I found the experience enjoyable overall. The two pieces of music you hear are from the MainStreet Marching Band and Jim - the long-time pianist outside of Casey's Corner.

Episode #192 - Epcot's Food and Wine Festival

Overview: Near the end of the Food & wine Festival, I finally found a day to enjoy the event. I brought my recorder, and tell you all about my experience! I've got some thoughts about the dishes I tried, the app I created, and some of the fun things to see and do. Come in and take a listen to my day enjoying Epcot's Food & Wine Festival!   

Notes: I am looking for feedback on the app, if anyone happened to use it. Feel free to send me an email if you think of anything. I know, for example, that having a way to plan things to try would be helpful. The guitarist heard in the podcast is Gerardo Manrique.

Episode #191 - The History of the Monorail -- and a trip to the Pacific Northwest

Overview: I took a trip to the Pacific Northwest over the summer, and I found some interesting things that tie back to Disney in some small ways. I also rode the monorail in Seattle, and its a cool trip down memory I spend some time talking about how it relates to Disney history.   

Notes: The story of Puddles can be found in Episode #14 ... visit to learn about National Parks.
