    2020 Holiday Season at Walt Disney World

    2020 Holiday Season at Walt Disney World

    Aaron, Willie and Tim talk about the upcoming holiday seasons at Walt Disney World. We share the information that has already been released (no MNSSHP or MVMCP, extended Food & Wine offerings and special entertainment at Epcot, etc.), as well as speculating about some things for which we haven't seen official announcements yet.



    Holiday crowds will be much lower than usual this year, due to capacity controls. If you're comfortable traveling with your family toward the end of this year, the experience available at Walt Disney World will be unlike any you've ever experienced before (and any you're likely to experience in the future)!

    WDW Planning for Large Groups

    WDW Planning for Large Groups

    This week, host Aaron Rittmaster and co-hosts Tim Hicks and Willie Crocker turn their attention to managing travel at Walt Disney World for larger groups. As travel professionals, we've noticed several issues related to Walt Disney World group travel, in particular, that may be getting in the way of guests having the best possible WDW experience when traveling with larger groups. We've also noticed that there seem to be more people talking about taking extended family trips or friends & family group trips to Walt Disney World, as they get comfortable with traveling again.



    We offer our thoughts regarding special considerations for everything from extended family groups or 3 or 4 rooms, mid-size groups of 10-20 rooms, and large groups that may need even more.

Unique POV

Dis "Dads" is more about the kids and family than "male bonding" so adjust expectations accordingly. Some diverse topics and interesting discussions from Aaron and the rotating set of panelists.

I’m a dad, I love Disney…Why not!?!?

I have been listening for years now. Discovered some overlap with some DisDads in other Podcasts. This one, particularly, is well structured, sticks to the subject and has great sponsors. I have discovered that other podcasts are slightly more forum oriented. On their webpage the header states “Going off topic since 2007”. I have been a listener since but Aaron shortchanged the cast with that statement. Keep it up, Brethren!

A Fresh Take on WDW

Stumbled upon this show after looking for other WDW podcasts since I was getting tired of hearing the same subject matter over and over again. While I love listening to WDW podcasts during my runs, the Dad's perspective on my favorite place on Earth gives this podcast a different slant. As a new father, it has helped me to think about how much my family's vacationing will change, but also has me looking forward to seeing WDW through my daughter's eyes for the first time. A thoroughly enjoyable podcast!
