Episodes #216 & 217 - Germany pavillion

Overview: This podcast is a tribute to the Germany pavilion. I take a thorough look at the design, layout, theming, and talk about the model train. Then, I spend some time talking about shopping and dining. And finally I discuss a planned attraction that was planned, but never built. Come take a listen to the tale about this fascinating opening-day Epcot pavilion.   

Notes: Germany feels almost incomplete as a pavilion. While it is interesting, there isn't as much to do there as one might hope. Still, its great to explore what's there, and the details are remarkable.
  • A reminder that the general overview of Epcot's World Showcase is in podcast #208
  • And I explored the Japan pavilion in podcast #209

    Episode #215 - What does $3B mean to Disney World?

    Overview: We've been hearing that Disney is planning to spend around $3 billion on its US theme parks, with much of it going to Disney World. Today, I do a little imaginating, and think about what that might mean. Its time to dream and consider the possibilities. That. Is. A lot. of Money.   

    Notes:Who knows what Disney will actually do? But I think some major changes at Hollywood Studios are likely, and perhaps some money will be spent over at Epcot to make some long-considered World Showcase pavilions a reality.

    Episode #214 - Ask Dave!

    Overview: I'm calling this segment Ask Dave as I take some time to answer questions that you have about a variety of Disney topics (my motto: I talk about all things Disney, but mostly Disney world). On this episode, I talk about riding up front on the monorail, how Disney transportation works, what are some of my favorite places to eat, what to do with used Magic Bands, trip planning advice, and a whole lot more!   

    Notes:Picking 3 places to eat is hard! There are many good dining choices, and the menus are getting better. Planning a trip? I would suggest contacting Shannon for a quote.
