Episode #267 - Observations and 4 parks

Overview: After my food and wine day, I stayed for another day and park hopped. Come along as I talk about what I did, and make some observations.


Notes: Yeah, I caught the clarification that the $5 fee applies to packages coming from outside the resort.  That was not clear in the original announcement.  Also, I don't mention the Cabanas that are for rent at a hefty $700 in the theme parks - but I'll note it here: stupidest. idea. ever.  I don't care if someone is willing to pay it.  Its just dumb.

Episode #266 - Food and Wine

Overview: I went up to the last day of the Food and Wine Festival, so naturally, I have to tell a couple of stories about the day. Also, to celebrate good food, I went into the California Grill to grab a bite to eat.


Notes: Food and Wine is always a great event, and I haven't missed it in many years.  The downside is that it is quite a bit more crowded and that crowd can get a little rowdy as more wine is consumed. But there are tricks, like going early and leaving the park around dinner tine as the crowds swell.  You can definitely make it suit your personal style.

Now as far as the California Grill, that was a terrific meal, and something I'd love to do again!

Episodes #264 & #265 -Favorite Disney Movies

Overview: Joining me on today's podcast is friend of the show Gary Miceli.  We are talking all about Disney movies, and share some of our favorites.  Come and take a listen as we discuss the history of movies and how Disney continues to churn out memorable films.


Notes: If you are lucky enough to one day be able to get a peek behind the shelving over in the shop that sits at the exit of the Mickey & Minnie meet-and-greet, you can see a remarkable mural.  This was at the entrance to The Walt Disney Story, and included drawings of every animated character through the mid 1980s.
