Ep. 5 – Too Much Tech at WDW?

Episode 5 of 2 Sides of WDW is all about technology in the Walt Disney World Resort.  We have come a long way since the  most sophisticated piece of equipment most of us brought to the parks was a camera.  No lightweight and digital cameras, either.  They were bulky and required a separate pack for extra batteries and film.  Much has changed.  Has the change made things better?

The biggest additions to the theme parks has been video cameras, walkie talkies, cell phones, fast pass, and all of the variations of My Magic Plus.  When we go on vacation, we want to unplug and spend time with our friends and family.  I think that all the tech gets in the way of actually experiencing the experience.  Kristen agrees for the most part, but as you will hear, she welcomes anything that will help make the trip easier.  After all, easier is always better isn’t it?

Check out this week’s episode and decide for yourself.  And once you have made your choice, be sure to contact us and let us know what you think!  Thanks for listening to this week’s edition of 2 Sides of WDW!

Ep. 4 – The Best FREE things to do in Disney World

In Episode 4, Kristen and I yap about one of everyone’s favorite topics, FREE Stuff!  We give you our run down of the Best Free things to see and do in and around Walt Disney World.

Yee-haa Bob
There are great experiences all over Walt Disney World.  But paid or free, perhaps the best of all is not in a Theme Park.  It is the epic piano player Yee-haa Bob at Port Orleans Riverside Resort.  Bob’s show is great, family fun.  He plays and has a sing along with tunes everybody in your family will enjoy and remember forever.  His personality is electric and everyone gravitates too him, even if they are not sure why at first.  He is there from Wednesday-Saturday and does three shows a night starting at 8:30.  It is a show that cost you nothing, but is not to be missed.  Good luck singing Sara…..Now don’t mess it up!

Club Cool
Club Cool is located in EPCOT and is the only place on property you get free drinks that are not water.  Sample flavors from all over the world.  Drink as many as you like.  It is all free.  And whatever you do, don’t forget to have some Beverly!

Transportation
Transportation in Disney are rides by themselves.  Monorails, boats, ferries, and perhaps even a bus can be an experience that is fun simply by taking a ride.  Don’t overlook these experiences regardless of where you are staying.

Fireworks
So technically you have to buy theme park admission to see the fireworks, but the shows are included in your ticket.  Every park except animal kingdom has a nighttime show, and they are all amazing experiences.  Any 4th of July show you have seen looks like a backyard with Roman Candles by comparison.  Don’t miss these.  The memories will stay with you forever.

Episode 3 – Top 7 Must Do (and must miss) at the 4 Disney Parks

In Episode 3, Kristen and I give you our lists of the Top 7 Must Do’s and the Bottom 7 Must Miss in each of the four theme parks in Walt Disney World.

There is a ton to do in the Disney theme parks.   In fact, there is so much to see and do that you simply cannot do it all in one trip.  So if this is your once in a lifetime trip, what are you to do?  Well this week Kristen and Mike break it all down for you so you don’t miss the good stuff and don’t waste time with the things you will kick yourself for doing later.

Disney World is excellent!  They pull off a theme park like nobody else in the world.  But that doesn’t mean everything is roses.  Cut through the company line with this week’s show.  To complicate the issue even more, Kristen and Mike can’t seem to agree….especially on what you can easily miss (Carousel of Progress?   Really Kristen?). At any rate, you can find them all in this week’s show.  Do you agree? Do you vehemently disagree?  Either way, we want to hear from you.  You can contact either of us (information below.

Episode 2 – Rating the WDW Theme Parks

In Episode 2 of 2 Sides of WDW,  Kristen and I rate the four major theme parks in Walt Disney World.  We will give you the best (and the worst) of each of the parks and then YOU can decide which holds the title of the BEST PARK AT DISNEY!   We also review the always fantastic Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party (Wishes Dessert Party).

The Theme Parks

Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom.  They are all terrific and very different experiences.  One has the best rides, another the best ambiance, another the most unique things to do, and perhaps one has everything you are looking for.  Want to know more?  Check out this week’s episode.

Wishes Dessert Party

This is perhaps the best add on in Disney World.  For just around $30 a piece, you get reserved seating for the Wishes fireworks show and all the desserts you can shove down in about an hour.  There are cakes, cookies, and about 30 other varieties here, and it is All You Can Eat.  The best part, though?  No crowds before and after the fireworks.  The price is worth it just for that.  Get more in this week’s episode.
